The Basics of Getting a Water Heater Replacement for Your Home
A couple of decades ago, the process of getting a water heater replacement was relatively simple, because people just got the exact same model and type as what was there before. Now, however, there are many more choices available.
Plenty of Possibilities
You can opt for a conventional water heater, like the type that’s in most American homes, or go with an electric-powered storage variety. There are also tankless versions, plus those that are solar-powered. If you’re feeling overwhelmed by all the options, just contact us at Best Plumbing Services. We serve communities in Southern California like Redlands, Rancho Cucamonga, Riverside, Corona, Ontario, and Moreno Valley.
Things to Consider
In order to make the best decision about a water heater replacement, it’s important to think about several things including:
- The number of people in your home
- Your energy efficiency expectations
- Length of any associated warranty
- Whether your old unit was sufficient or you need something with different features
- Amount of available space in your residence
- Upfront cost of a potential unit in relation to its annual operating costs
Although that is not an exhaustive list, it should be helpful in narrowing down your choices.
Repairs Versus Replacements
People often wonder if it would be better to try and repair a faulty water heater rather than making a complete replacement. In general, we believe if the cost of a repair would be over half the cost of a new unit, it’s better to just go with a water heater replacement.
If you have more questions about replacements, feel free to contact us at Best Plumbing Services. You deserve a system that can heat an appropriate amount of water when it’s needed.
