When to Replace Your Hot Water Heater

How do you know you need hot water tank repair in Vancouver or a Port Coquitlam plumbing? Knowing what parts can wear out and what damage can occur is the difference between knowing if you need service repairs or a total hot water tank replacement. A few things to keep in mind when deciding if your water tank needs replacement include your warranty, age, the cost of repairs, the frequency of the repairs needed if it’s leaking and how much, and the colour of the water or if it’s heating properly.

If the warranty has expired it is time to replace your water heater. Older units cost way more to repair than a newer model often because the parts for older units are much harder to find parts. Older models are typically less efficient at heating water because they use more energy. If you have been using your unit for more than a decade, you should consider having it replaced soon to avoid costly repairs from water damage that can occur from an outdated model.

If the water is rusty in colour, this is a big problem and means it is time to replace your unit.

Choosing the Right Hot Water Heater

If you need emergency hot water tank replacement, let MVP help you make the right choice on water heater repair in Vancouver. Do you know when to replace a hot water tank? Do you know your replacement options? You should choose one that is best suited to your home's needs. If you are trying to decide between a tank or tankless unit, each one has its benefits. A tankless unit will take up less space in your home. However, if you have a larger household or you will be using a lot of hot water, a tankless model might not be the right choice because it can only heat up a certain amount of water at a time. A tankless heater is best intended for individuals who live alone or small households. You don’t have to worry about the tank leaking. A home with more than one person should have one with a tank to ensure no one will run out of hot water!

Water heaters come in gas and electric units as well conventional tank or tankless, both having their own benefits. A gas water heater heats up faster and to a much warmer temperature than that of an electric unit. It costs less to run daily, but cost more to install. The only exception will be if you are converting from a gas unit to an electric unit, for there is usually a conversion fee attached to the hot water heater replacement cost. Both last the same amount of time. A gas unit would be better for larger households, while an electric unit would be better for smaller ones.

The size of your household will help you decide on what size water heater you need in your home. Click this site here for saving space ideas. A forty-gallon tank will be a good tank for up to a three-bedroom house with one and a half bathrooms. A fifty-gallon tank will be a good tank for up to a five-bedroom house with two and a half baths. A sixty-five-gallon tank will be a good tank for a five-bedroom house and three and a half baths.

Another decision you have to make is to rent or buy. Renting has great benefits such as you don’t have to pay for installation services or maintenance. If you own your unit, you must worry about repairs and maintenance as soon as your warranty ends. Know your hot water tank replacement cost. You should always do the math on how much you will be spending to rent your unit. Sometimes it will be cheaper to buy the unit outright, especially if you are renting the unit long term.

There are many brands to choose from when deciding on a water heater system. Brands such as Rheem, A.O Smith, Lochinvar, Kenmore, Bradford White, Rinnai, John Wood, Navien, and Bosch.

How to Keep your Hot Water Heater Safe & Running

There are things you can do to make sure that your water heater stays safe and working. First, you should never attempt an installation yourself, always call in a professional to do the job for you. You should always keep your unit elevated and switched off when you are not using it for extended periods of time. It is also important to service your water heater regularly by cleaning the area around it because, over time, dirt dust and debris build up. Lastly, drain about a quarter of the tank a few times a year to remove sediment that builds up in the tank over time.
