What you should know about replacing your water heater

The average life expectancy of a water heater is 13 years. Like most appliances, water heaters have improved greatly in recent years. Today’s models are much more energy efficient and there are more options such as tankless water heaters. You probably can’t replace your existing water heater with the same exact model, but you can also upgrade your water heater to fit your needs. Some things to consider when replacing your water heater are as follows:

Things to Consider When Replacing Your Water Heater

Tank Size

The standard size for a residential water heater is 40 or 50 gallons. The capacity of a water heater should be based on the number of people in the house and the peak hour water demand, not necessarily the size of the house. The water heater should provide enough hot water at the busiest time of the day. Also consider the number of plumbing fixtures you have in the home. The more sinks you have the greater the demands.

Fixtures in your home

When sizing you water heater you should consider how many sinks and showers you have in your home. You will also need to account for a higher water demand if you have dual shower head features and large bathtubs, because these fixtures require more hot water to operate effectively.

Tank vs. Tankless Water Heaters

Tankless water heaters have gained popularity over the years because of their energy efficiency. There are some things to consider when replacing your traditional tank water heater with a tankless water heater. Please contact TLC for a FREE estimate if you’re interested in upgrading to a tankless water heater. Compare tank and tankless options.
