When to Replace Your Water Heater?


Wondering When to Replace Your Water Heater? Clarity by ClimateCare is here to help.

Your water heater may get more work than any other home appliance. If it goes on the blink, it’s almost as bad as losing heat on a cold winter night.

The best solution is to replace your water heater when it’s no longer in peak form, and before it goes completely. Age, condition, efficiency and effectiveness are all things to evaluate when you are wondering if it makes sense to replace your water heater.

Your Clarity by ClimateCare contractor can help determine whether it’s time for your water heater to go. Our certified technicians will make a thorough inspection and show you exactly what they see. Here are some signs we’ll be looking for when evaluating your water heater’s condition:

  • While water heaters have been known to last 15 to 20 years, if it’s older than 10 years and has any kind of problems, it’s time for a replacement
  • Leaking around the base of the tank
  • Inconsistent hot water production, or none at all

Sometimes, insufficient hot water can be a straightforward repair like replacing a heating element or the thermostat. But repairing an older hot water heater, in the long run, may not be the best action to take.

Let’s sit down and discuss your options. Your nearest Clarity by ClimateCare member is interested in building relationships, good reviews and 100% satisfied customers. And that means looking out for your best interests.
