If you know how your water heater works when it is performing correctly, you’ll be able to notice issues requiring water heater repair. Knowing regular function allows you to schedule repairs before they become more significant issues. Your water heater may give signs it is headed for a breakdown, including:

Water Heater Replacement and Installation Service

Increasing water heater repairs or erratic temperatures can quickly become frustrating. In many cases, scheduling a water heater replacement or new system installation can solve the problem. A new system offers more reliable water temperatures and decreases overall costs through better efficiency and by lowering the amount spent on water heater repairs. Aire Serv of the Shenandoah Valley provides both water heater replacement and installation. Our experts can assist you with any decisions you need to make, including whether a new system is the best choice for your home or office. If you decide to change the type of water heater you use, such as switching to a hybrid or tankless model, our service professionals will ensure the transition is seamless and accurate.

Types of Water Heaters

  • Gas water heaters burn natural gas or propane to produce heat. They are an inexpensive choice to operate, although they are not the most energy-efficient options. Their ability to heat a large volume of water makes them the preferred choice for larger households or businesses.
  • Electric water heaters create heat with electricity instead of gas. They are the safer, more efficient, and more environmentally friendly option for tank water heaters. Electric heaters cost more to operate due to their dependence on electricity.
  • Tankless water heaters do not store water in a tank; they heat water as needed. Tankless systems are extremely quick and efficient, allowing you to access hot water immediately without taking up much space like a tank system.
  • Hybrid water heaters use a tank to store water, but it doesn’t always generate heat. Instead, they either use electricity to heat water or use a heat pump to pull heat from the air.

Water Heater Repairs vs Replacements

Knowing the best time to get a new water heater is hard. The installation fee, initial costs, and dilemma of choosing the best unit for your home or business are all reasons to talk yourself out of scheduling a heat pump installation. The choice becomes easier when you realize your existing water heater costs more over time than a new system would. Our team of experts can help you consider all the options and make recommendations based on the state of your water heater and any repairs needed. There are a few factors to consider when deciding if you want a water heater replacement:

  • Age: Warranties and lifespans vary from brand to brand, but as a general rule, if your warranty has run out and the water heater is more than ten years old, it’s probably wise to replace it.
  • Investment Cost: Our experts will be able to help you determine what your return on investment will be with a more energy-efficient water heater.
  • Water Heater Repairs: If the cost of repairs on an old or well-used water heater continues to skyrocket or outweigh the cost of a new system, you will save money with a water heater replacement.
  • Utility Rates: You can calculate how much money you will potentially spend this year with your old water heater and compare it with how much you will spend with an energy-efficient model.
