Why You Should Replace Your Old Water Heater This Summer

If you regularly maintain your water heater and it isn’t working well, then you should consider getting a new water heater installed into your Fort Worth home this summer.  If your water heater hasn’t had service in a long time, your problems may be able to be fixed for less than the cost of a new water heater.

  • Consider the location of your water heater. If your water heater is older and a tank model, you may want to replace it if it is in a location that would cause major damage to the structure of your home if it leaks.
  • If your water heater hasn’t been neglected, there is no reason to have it replaced unless you want to upgrade to a tankless unit. You may also want a water heater than holds more water, so you can benefit from longer showers.  These are both good reasons to have a new water heater installed before the cooler months arrive.
  • If you are worried about saving the money for a new tank or tankless installation, we at Hawk Plumbing suggest a savings account for upcoming purchases for your home. This allows homeowners to plan and still use the older items in their home until they are ready to replace them.
  • If you have bad water quality, your water heater may have damage inside the tank that’s caused it to rust. This can be a severe problem soon, so a new water heater now is a sound investment.
  • If you have a leak or your water heater has an element that keeps going out, it is showing its age and needs to have a replacement right away. Any leak should be fixed as soon as possible, so you don’t get structural damage to your home.
