What you Should Know When Replacing a Hot Water Heater

We won’t recommend replacing your water heater unless it’s absolutely necessary. Our plumbers look for the simplest fix first. If we can save you money and trouble that’s what we’ll do.

But sometimes a water heater can be fussy because it’s getting too old to operate effectively. Water heaters can last ten years, more or less, depending on how much use they get. If it’s time for a new unit, here are a few things to consider:

  • New Water Heater Prices – A new, traditional water heater can start at around $400 and go up to around $1500 for the more efficient options. That doesn’t include installation and the costs of hauling the old unit away.
  • Water Heater Sizes – In recent years traditional water heaters have become more efficient by including more insulation to hold heat. The extra padding also makes them bigger. So a unit that holds the same amount of water as your previous model can still need a larger space. That means a new unit may not fit in the same space your old one did.
  • Tankless Units – These units will cost you more, but can provide your family with unlimited hot water while saving on electricity. Their small size is also a plus. They can fit almost anywhere, even a closet.

Water Heater Repair in Gilbert

Hopefully, your water heater problem is just a minor issue that can be fixed quickly and cheaply. After a fix, your hot water can come back to life and everyone in the house is happy again.

Here’s a look at some of the simple fixes and some of the repair jobs that take a little longer:

  • Easy Fixes: A breaker may have tripped in your power box. A simple reset on the breaker can restore power and the hot water is suddenly back. The hot water temperature setting may have gotten changed somehow. A quick adjustment can fix the issue. A pilot light on a gas water heater may have gone out. This can be a simple fix. However, if a pilot light won’t relight it may be a sign of a bigger issue.
  • Bigger Issues: A leak on the outside of the tank in the lines going in and out can usually be repaired. A heating element inside the tank may have gone out and can be replaced. Thermostats can stop telling the elements when to heat. A new one can be installed. On a gas model, the valve that controls the flow of gas may need to be replaced. You may also need a new thermocouple sensor to get gas flowing to your pilot light again.
