How to Know When to Replace Your Water Heater
Water heaters are an essential part of everyday life, and if you’ve ever had the misfortune of having yours break down, you know how inconvenient it is. If your water heater is no longer functioning correctly—or not—you may wonder whether it’s better to repair or replace it.
While there is no one-size-fits-all answer to this question, the general rule of thumb says it depends on the age and condition of your water heater.
If your water heater is more than ten years old and struggling to keep up with the demands of your household, replacing it may be a better bet because repairing it may not return it to a like-new state, and it probably won’t add much to the system’s lifespan. A new water heater will save you money in the long run by cutting down your energy costs, and it will perform better than your old unit.
If your water heater is less than ten years old and still under warranty, repairing it is usually the better option.
