How do I know my water heater is past the point of repair?

The minute you discover water coming from the water heater you need to come to the realization that the heater cannot be repaired. It is time for it to be replaced. Make sure the water you found is actually coming from the heater so that you don’t wind up replacing an appliance that isn’t in need of replacement. But, if there is a puddle on the floor near the heater it’s more than likely it is from the heater. It’s also possible that you could be too late if the tank already burst.

How long should I expect my new water heater to last?

Are you installing an electric water heater in your home? If so, this type of water heater will wind up lasting you anywhere from 10 to 15 years. If you go with a water heater that runs on gas or propane in your home it will have a lifespan of anywhere from eight to 12 years.

Can I install my new water heater myself?

It’s not uncommon for homeowners to have the ability to replace or install a water heater on their own. Is it a smart idea to do so? In the simplest of answers, no, it’s not a good idea to install a new water heater yourself. There’s so much that can go terribly wrong, especially when dealing with electricity (electrocution) and gas (leaks and explosion). No matter your skillset it is important to only trust a licensed, experienced plumber with the installation of a new water heater. Replacing a water heater takes anywhere from one to two days to complete so be prepared to be without hot water and heat during this time.

Has your water heater stopped providing hot water or heat to your home? Have you found water in the area of the heater? Are there rusted connections on the water heater? If you answered yes to any of these questions then it is time to replace your water heater. Make sure you utilize an experienced team like the ones at A Better Plumber for this important project. Never attempt to install a water heater by yourself. Instead, rely on the licensed local plumbers here at A Better Plumber for your water heater installation in Waldorf.
