Determining Water Heater Replacement
Five Star Plumbing has a large assortment of units to choose from that will suit your current budget and your household size. From tankless to electric or gas, we offer the best brands available on the market today. We will work with you to find a water heater replacement that will fit within your budget, and we also offer financing to make the purchasing process easier on your wallet. So, how do you know if it’s time for a replacement?
In general, if your water heater is over 10 years old, it might be time to consider looking for a replacement. Take a closer look at your water heater and look for any rust. Rust is usually an indicator that the water heater is beginning to rust on the inside. This means that the unit could start leaking soon. A leaking water heater can cause flooding and serious damage in your home, so it’s not something to be ignored.
If you’ve noticed that the water is not staying warm for very long, this could be another sign that you need a water heater replacement. Water that doesn’t heat up quickly or that comes out cold even when you have it set to hot may mean you need a new unit. If you’re ever in doubt, contact our professional team to come and take a closer look. We can assess the problem and determine whether or not your water heater can be repaired. If not, we’re happy to offer a wide selection of new water heater units to suit your needs. We’ll always give you a fair and free estimate, so you can see exactly what will fit into your budget.
