How Much Does Installation Cost?
Traditional Water Heater
Installing a traditional water heater can be half the cost of a tankless water heater as there are usually fewer complications resulting in potentially fewer problems to handle.
Tankless Water Heater
Replacing a traditional water heater with a new tankless system is a bit more complicated, unfortunately, so such an installation will likely cost more. At the same time though, there are numerous benefits to going tankless.
If you are uncertain which system may benefit you the most, please do not hesitate to contact the professionals here at Dutton Plumbing. We strive to go above and beyond for our clients wherever possible—including advising you when requested.
What to Consider Before Installing a New Water Heater?
If your water heater begins to leak, you’ll need to find a replacement quickly. While most water heaters will last 8 to 12 years, yours could run into problems at any point.
You should know what you’re looking for before you choose a new water heater to install.
- Do some research into the many high-efficiency models now on the market.
- Know your budget
- Understand the size of water heater you require
- Know the size of your home. For example, a small bathroom could make do with a small water heater. If you intend to heat water for the entire home, however, you’ll want a sizeable heater.
- Consider the power source—some water heaters use gas and others electricity
If you’re unsure about any of these specifics, don’t hesitate to speak with a professional at Dutton Plumbing.
When is it Time for a Water Heater Replacement?
Like all appliances in your home, your water heater will eventually break down due to age or internal issues. Ideally, you should replace your water heater before it stops working altogether. If you wait, you’ll end up with a cold shower—or something worse, like leaks and significant water damage.
Don’t let that happen. Instead, watch for the early warning signs that your water heater is declining. These symptoms include:
- Rust or corrosion
Most water heaters will last an average of 8 to 12 years. With proper maintenance, yours could last a little longer. You should also examine the system regularly for corrosion. Finally, if the water heater leaks on a regular basis, you should replace it immediately. A leak may lead to water damage, further corrosion, and worse. Don’t wait!
