Knowing When It's Time
Common Signs Your Existing Water Heater Needs to be Replaced
Whether it’s due to old age, failed parts, or a supply of hard water, there are numerous reasons that you may need to replace your existing water heater. Below, we look at some of the most common signs your existing water heater needs to be replaced.
The typical lifespan of a water heater is around 8-12 years for traditional tank heaters and up to 20 years for tankless models.
Rusty or discolored water coming from the hot water taps can indicate corrosion inside the tank, a clear sign of potential failure.
Any visible leaks around the water heater, especially from the tank itself, require immediate attention and often mean that the tank has deteriorated.
Inconsistent Hot Water
If your water heater struggles to maintain a consistent temperature or runs out of hot water more quickly than before, it may be failing.
Loud popping, cracking, or rumbling noises from the water heater’s tank can signal sediment buildup, reducing efficiency and potentially leading to damage.
High Energy Bills
An inefficient water heater can lead to higher energy bills, so if you notice a significant increase in costs, it might be time for an upgrade to a more efficient tankless model.
Water Heater Overheating
If the water heater starts overheating or produces scalding hot water, it can be dangerous and may indicate a malfunction.
If you’re repeatedly calling for repairs or the cost of repairs approaches or exceeds the cost of a new unit, replacement is often the more cost-effective choice.
Foul-smelling or metallic-tasting water from the hot taps can be a sign of sediment buildup or internal corrosion.
Visible Tank Damage
If you notice bulging or visible damage, such as corrosion or rust, to the tank or its fittings, it’s a clear indication that replacement may be necessary.
Regular maintenance and prompt attention to these signs can extend the life of your water heater, but eventually, all water heaters will need to be replaced to ensure a reliable and efficient hot water supply.
Which Option is Right for Your Home?
Conventional Tank VS Tankless Water Heaters
Tank water heaters store and continuously heat a reservoir of hot water, ready for immediate use, making them suitable for households with consistent hot water demands but less energy-efficient due to standby heat loss. In contrast, tankless water heaters, also known as on-demand heaters, heat water only as needed, offering energy efficiency and longer lifespans.
Benefits of a Tank Water Heater
- Lower Initial Cost: Tank water heaters are generally more affordable to purchase and install than tankless units.
- Simple Installation: Replacement of an existing tank water heater is straightforward, as it typically involves swapping out the old unit for a new one.
- Consistent Hot Water: Tank heaters provide a continuous supply of hot water as long as there’s water in the tank, making them suitable for homes with moderate to high hot water demands.
- Familiarity: Tank water heaters have been the standard for decades, and many homeowners are familiar with their operation and maintenance.
Benefits of a Tankless Water Heater
- Energy Efficiency: Tankless water heaters only heat water when needed, reducing standby energy loss and potentially leading to lower energy bills.
- Longer Lifespan: Tankless units typically last longer, with a lifespan of up to 20 years.
- Space Savings: They are compact and can be installed on walls, freeing up floor space.
- Endless Hot Water: Tankless units provide a continuous supply of hot water, making them ideal for households with high demand for hot water.
- Temperature Control: Precise temperature control allows you to set the desired hot water temperature.
The choice of installing a tank versus a tankless water heater depends on factors like hot water usage, space availability, and budget, with tank heaters offering lower upfront costs and tankless units delivering energy savings and longer-term benefits.
