Signs You May Need to Replace Your Water Heater
Knowing when to replace your water heater can be a challenge. Homeowners understandably want their current water heaters to last as long as possible but may be unaware that an old unit can end up costing you more even though it still runs. The 10-year mark is the general recommendation for a water heater replacement, but there can be indications that you need to replace your water heater sooner than that. Brownish hot water or a rusted valve or inlet often indicates corrosion within the tank itself. Odd noises are cause for concern as they are often a sign of excess sediment buildup. Leaks are serious and must be dealt with right away, but even seemingly minor drips and water pooling can be big problems as well. Another warning sign is water temperature that is inconsistent or too low, which often points to a thermostat or heating element malfunction.
Water Heater Replacement Benefits
The most notable benefit of water heater replacement is efficiency. Your old system is not as efficient as it was when you purchased it, and water heater technologies have improved over the last decade. Improved energy efficiency is better for the environment but also for your wallet. This is the reason why squeezing extra time out of an old water heater can actually cost you more in the end. Another benefit is improved quality of life. Not only are the technologies better, but your household has likely evolved over the last decade. You can choose a new water heater that recovers hot water at a faster rate and has a smaller footprint and makes better use of your available space. You may even choose an on-demand system, which will provide you with a practically limitless supply of hot water while saving you a considerable amount of money over the next 20 years or more.

Standard Tank Water Heaters
Sanks Mechanical will install a new Bradford White tank water heater to replace your broken or outdated water heater. Bradford White is one of the industry’s most trustworthy and well-known names. They produce water heaters that are both efficient and long-lasting.
Tankless Water Heaters
Many people are switching from tank water heaters to tankless water heaters. While on-demand water heating systems are more expensive up front, they give a higher quality of life. They also last longer and are more efficient, which means they are less expensive in the long run.
Condensing Water Heaters
Condensing hot water heaters recover heat that would otherwise be wasted from a combustion source. This method is incredibly efficient and thus cost-effective in the long run, and it gives you the option of a tank or a tankless system with a similar footprint.
Heat Pump Water Heaters
Heat pump water heaters work by transmitting heat energy and can be either air or ground sourced. This type of water heater is extremely efficient and can work in tandem with the heat pump you use to heat and cool your home.
