When To Replace Water Heater

Posted on January 7, 2022

Your water heater probably works harder than any other home appliance. If it breaks down anywhere between October and May, it’s almost as bad as your furnace taking a holiday on a cold winter night. In a perfect world, you’ll replace your water heater when it’s no longer in peak form - before it goes completely. But it’s not just as simple as looking at the heater to see how the outer shell looks. A mechanical evaluation is needed to dig deeper into the nuts and bolts of your water heater.

Contact Appleby Systems for Your Review

An Appleby Systems technician can help you decide if a new water heater is in order. John Wood and Envirosense water tanks are guaranteed more efficient than your existing tank. So, if your water heater is exhibiting any of the following symptoms during our visit, we may recommend an energy-efficient upgrade.

  • While water heaters have been known to last 15 to 20 years, if it’s older than 10 years and has any kind of significant problem, a replacement may be more financially sound than a repair
  • Leaking around the base of the tank indicates a quick replacement is necessary.
  • Inconsistent hot water production or none at all, can signal a significant issue. A new tank will only cost a fraction more than the repair, and you’ll come out with a new, beautiful tank.

Sometimes, insufficient hot water can be a straightforward repair like replacing a heating element or the thermostat. But repairing an older hot water heater may end up costing you more over the next 5 years than installing a new one. Let us help you decide. We build our business largely through good reviews and 100% satisfied customers. It’s in our interest to give you the most clear picture of the solution that adheres to your best interests.
