Do I Need to Replace My Hot Water Heater? | Airco Service

Posted on: Dec 20, 2018

Is your water heater not functioning as it should? Have you noticed it leaking or perhaps you’re just not getting the same kind of sustained hot water you’re accustomed to? Whatever the issue, you may have to wonder if it is time to replace your water heater. It is possible it is time to replace it or you might need to only repair your hot water heater. Whatever the situation is, Airco Service is here to help you know the right course of action.

Age of the Water Heater

One of the biggest tell signs as to whether you need a new water heater or if it’s better to repair it is the age of the heater. Many water tanks will last around a decade, if not up to two. If your current hot water heater has reached the decade mark it is more than likely time to replace it. While the team at Airco Service can help point out the possible problems your water heater will experience in the coming months and years, you’ll likely find in the long run it is better to go with something new than to repair a decade old water heater.

Energy Bills Going Up

Have you noticed an increase in your energy bills? If so then it could be caused by your hot water heater using more energy to heat your water. This is, at the very least, a sign your water heater needs repair. A specialist can come out and look over your water heater to find the cause of the problem. Depending on what the issue is and the age of your appliance, it may want to replace it.

Physical Damage to the Water Heater

Is there a crack or other damage to the water heater? When there is physical damage to the hot water heater it often is better to pay for an upgrade than to try to repair it.

Whether you need to repair or replace your water heater, you need an expert who is able to handle the repair or help you with the replacement. At Airco Service Inc. that’s exactly what you get. So if you have questions about your current hot water heater, want to know more about the company, or are ready to set up an in-home service, now is the time to give Airco Service a call.
