Water Heater Replacement in Glenview & Surrounding Areas
Most water heaters, especially conventional tank water heaters, have an average lifespan of 10 to 15 years. If your current system has reached the 10 year mark, you may be wondering if now is the time to replace it. While there are instances in which water heater repairs and maintenance will keep your system going for a bit longer, at some point, replacement is necessary. Most of the time, it’s better to replace sooner rather than later when your water heater quits altogether.
When to Replace Your Water Heater
If you’re trying to decide when to replace your water heater, ask yourself the following questions:
- Are you spending a lot of money on costly repairs lately? If you’ve found yourself calling a local HVAC contractor for water heater repair services more and more, it might make more sense to invest that money in a new unit. At some point, repairs just won’t do.
- Does your home use a lot of hot water? The more hot water used by the people in your home, the more of a daily workout your water heater has experienced. A tank that has seen heavy use won’t last as long.
- Would a larger tank better suit your home’s needs? If your family is always running out of hot water, and you’ve had the system checked for the problem, it could be that your tank just isn’t big enough to hold as much hot water as your home needs. A larger, newer tank may be a better alternative than sticking with a water heater that’s on it’s last leg.
- Does your area have hard or poor-quality water? Lower quality water is tough on your system as it can cause more sediment to build up, shortening your water heater’s lifespan.
If You Experience Any of These Signs, Call Glenbrook Now
Not convinced that you need a new water heater after considering the factors above? Well, if you experience the following issues, even after having your system serviced, there is a good chance your water heater is beyond repair:
- Your water doesn’t stay hot or never gets hot. Do you find yourself racing to end your shower before you run out of warm water? Or, does your home no longer have hot water whatsoever? With a new (possibly even larger), more efficient water heater, you’ll enjoy water that is actually hot, and you won’t have to worry about racing through your hygiene routine.
- Your water is discolored. A buildup of sediments in your water heater can cause discoloration. Also, if parts of your water heater have begun to rust, you’ll notice black or rusty colored water. In older water heaters, maintenance may not fix this problem.
- There is a leak from your storage tank or pressure relief valve. Sure, a leak can be repaired, but if you’re dealing with leak after leak, your worn out water heater has reached the end of its lifespan. And, with every leak you run the risk of dealing with mold and mildew growth.
- Your tank is making loud, unusual noises. Again, hard water will cause build up in your water heater. If there is build up near any of the valves, the water will make loud noises as it tries to pass through.
If your aging water heater can no longer meet the needs of your North Shore area home, it’s time to pick out a new one. And, our experts can help! Contact us today.
Why Call Glenbrook for Water Heater Replacement?
We understand that you may still be holding out hope that your current water heater can get the job done. Unfortunately, if you’re experiencing one or more of the issues above, or your water heater has seen a lot of use and abuse over the years, replacing your tank may be your best bet.
Newer, more energy efficient water heaters are cost savers when it comes to utility bills and repair needs. Investing in a water heater that doesn’t require as much energy to run will not only save you money over time, it’s also better for the environment. Plus, if your aging water heater is located on your main floor or an upper level, you’re at a much greater risk of a leak causing extensive damage, which will cost significantly more than just replacing the system. A new tank with new valves is less likely to spring a leak.
Picking a new water heater will ensure that your tank is prepared to meet the needs of your home and family.
