Is It Time For a Water Heater Replacement?

If it is not an emergency, signs that it is time to replace your water heater include puddles around the heater, rusty water, rumbling and noises, excessive utility bills, and the age of the heater. Most water heaters last about ten years with normal use. As your family grows, you may notice that there is insufficient hot water for your family’s needs. Perhaps you have to choose between running the dishwasher and taking a shower. You may be washing your clothes when no other hot water appliances are in use. In any of these situations, it may be time for a water heater repair or to upgrade your water heater.

How Energy Efficient Can My New Water Heater Be?

The field of water heaters has changed to keep up with Denver’s focus on green living. The typical tank water heater holds a certain volume of water at a preset temperature. When hot water is used, more water flows into the tank to be heated. Tankless heaters heat the water as you need it. Although tankless heaters generally cost more to install, you will save that much more money over time as less energy will be used to provide hot water for your family.

You must also decide on the heating source: gas or electric. Most people choose the option used by the old water heater to save on switching over to another power source. There are benefits and drawbacks to both gas and electric, so you will want to discuss this with your Denver technician. Sometimes a switch can make more sense when all factors are considered.

What Size Water Heater Does My Family Need?

Finally, you must select a capacity and energy efficiency level that matches your needs. A good rule of thumb is to have a large enough tank to provide hot water for an hour in the shower and for other appliances you use on a daily basis such as the dishwasher. Depending on your time available for household chores, you may want to include the clothes washer in this capacity-gauging hour. If you have more than one shower, does more than one person shower at a time? Your technician will guide you through all the variables unique to your home and lifestyle.
