The Honest Water Heater Plumber

Is it time for a New Water Heater?

People don’t usually think about purchasing a new water heater until they notice that the heater is broken or leaking water, or they are upgrading their house or basement and investing in new plumbing and efficiency. Signs of water heater problems include the following:

  • Pilot light is on but gas water heater flickers
  • Circuit breaker trips for an electric heater
  • Burner or heating element doesn’t respond or fails
  • Thermostat breaks
  • Valve sticks
  • Water leaks
  • No hot water even though heater seems fine

Repairing or replacing water heater parts is fairly inexpensive. A plumber can typically do the job for a couple hundred bucks. But if the tank is more than 10 years old, or if it is leaking, or the job costs more than a couple hundred dollars, then you are far better off simply replacing the water heater with a brand new energy efficient water heater. You could even save on your monthly water bill with the new energy saving water heaters now available.

It does not matter if you buy a Tank-less water heater, gas water heater, or a electric water heater, they all have a good & a bad part. electric-water-heaterOn average, water heater replacement or installation costs $850, with most homeowners spending between $1,272 and $3,108.
