Signs You Need a Water Heater Replacement

If your water heater has failed and is too old or expensive to fix, then replacing it may be the obvious choice, but there are often signs that you need water heater replacement before you get to that moment. The 10-year mark is generally recommended as the point at which you should proactively replace your tank water heater. Discoloration of your water supply or visible rust on the valve or inlet are often indications that there is corrosion in the tank. Strange noises often suggest sediment accumulation, which can sometimes be fixed by flushing the tank but other times requires replacement. No matter how seemingly minor, any leak is cause for concern and should be dealt with right away. Water that is not hot enough or has an inconsistent temperature can indicate an issue with the thermostat, heating element, or burner. If you experience any of these issues, schedule us to perform an inspection. We’ll conduct a thorough diagnostic and provide you with a professional and honest assessment.

We Install New Tank and Tankless Water Heaters

Common Water Heater Types

At Horn, we have worked on almost every type of home and commercial water heater. Traditional tank water heaters and more advanced tankless systems are the most popular solutions for Pennsylvania businesses and homeowners. We have various options for replacing your present hot water heater with a new, energy-efficient unit. Our skilled plumbers can install a new water heater that will last for many years.

Traditional Storage Water Heaters
  • Traditional Storage Tank
    This is the most popular type of water heater. It is made up of a heating element and a huge tank whose size and capacity are decided by the size and needs of the building and its occupants. The normal warranty for traditional water heaters is 6 years for the tank and parts, so have yours examined on a regular basis.
Tankless Water Heaters
  • Tankless Water Heater
    Tankless water heaters do not actually store any hot water and are known as essentially a provider of endless hot water for your house or company. It delivers on-demand hot water by rapidly heating the water as it is drawn through the system. This is a really efficient method that will help you save money on your energy expenses.
Condensing Water Heaters
  • Condensing Water Heater
    This type of water heater makes use of “waste heat” from the combustion source to help heat the water in the tank. Because they share the same footprint, this supplementary source of heat enhances the unit’s energy efficiency, making it an excellent replacement for a typical tank system.
Heat Pump Water Heaters
  • Heat Pump Water Heater
    This type of water heater, also known as a hybrid electric water heater, progressively transfers heat absorbed from the earth or the air. This extremely energy-efficient process is only rivaled by the tankless water heater. It may not be the greatest solution for buildings in our location because it demands warm air or warm earth.

Trust The Experts At Horn For Your Water Heater Replacement

Great Reasons to Invest in a New Water Heater Replacement

If your current system is 10 years old or older, consider that water heater technologies have come a long way over the last decade. Your old water heater is inefficient. A new system will be more efficient due to the age difference but also advancements, and that will mean a lower cost to operate each month. Your new water heater will recover hot water at a faster rate. Water heater replacement is also an opportunity to reassess your usage as your household or workplace has probably changed a good deal over the last decade. It also gives you the opportunity to consider new technologies. A tankless water heater, for instance, can provide space savings and a practically limitless supply of hot water.

Improve Your Indoor Comfort

While your water heater is easy to take for granted, it serves an integral role in indoor comfort and quality of life, and water heater replacement can make your home or business more enjoyable. A water heater should be sized to meet the needs of the people who use it. Everyone in a household, for instance, should be able to take a morning shower without worrying about missing out. For temperature, the recommended range is 120 to 140°F. Anything lower creates a risk for bacteria in the water supply, and anything higher is uncomfortable and potentially dangerous. Your water heater should be able to achieve the precise temperature you set and continue to provide it on a consistent basis.
