If your water heater is on the older side, and you are debating if you should repair it again or replace it, there are some advantages of installing a new water heater over repairing the old one.
Advantage #1: Save Money
Although you will have to pay money upfront to install a new water heater, over time, having a new unit will allow you to save money, especially if you choose an Energy Star efficient unit. An Energy Star efficient unit is designed to use less energy than a regular unit and probably way less energy than your older unit. You will spend less money heating your water, which will help reduce your energy usage associated with the unit, lowering your energy bill.
Advantage #2: Quieter Operation
Older water heaters tend to run louder than more modern units. Additionally, as they age, water heaters tend to start to make more noise. If you are tired of the noise pollution that your water heater creates, and you are ready for something quieter, then you are ready to invest in a new unit. New units are specially designed to produce as little noise as possible, cutting down on noise pollution inside your home and helping to contribute to a more peaceful environment.
Advantage #3: More Water
When installing a new unit, you don't have to stick to the same sized unit as before. You could install a newer unit with a larger tank if you were constantly running out of hot water before. This will allow you always to have hot water and ensure that no one ever has to take a shower and feel the water turn from hot to cold when they are using it. A larger tank will ensure that you don't have to deal with a hot water shortage in your home.
Advantage #4: Less Worry
Finally, installing a new water heater will give you less to worry about. You will no longer have to be on the lookout for leaks and regularly call in the repair technicians to fix up your water heater. You will get to enjoy hot water without the stress and worry that comes with an older unit. Your new unit should be able to provide you with reliable and stable hot water for at least a decade.
If you have an old water heater that you constantly have to repair, now may be the time to invest in a new unit. A new unit will use less energy, operate more quietly, produce more hot water, use less energy, and create less worry in your life. Click here to begin the process.
When you have a plumber come work on your home, we hope you thank them. Really, you should be thanking any contractor who works on your home, but we are a little partial to plumbers and happen to think they deserve a little more recognition. After all, the stuff inside the pipes they work on doesn't usually smell very good. And even though they wear gloves, they have to get pretty close to it! If you would like to learn a little more about plumbers, then we invite you to read this blog. After learning the basics, you'll really want to thank your plumbers!
