Is Your Water Heater Falling Down On The Job? How A New Tank Will Benefit You And Your Home

Posted on: 11 August 2017

 If your water heater is no longer doing the job it was created for, it may be time for you to contact a plumber. There's no need to settle for a water heater that isn't functioning properly when with one phone call you could have a brand new one installed in your home. Here are a few of the benefits you'll enjoy from investing in a new water heater:

Increased Hot Water Capacity

If you've got an older hot water heater, it might not have the capacity you need, especially if you've got a dish washer or a large family. Even if it is a large capacity water heater, hard water deposits, and rust may have built up in the tank and reduced the holding capacity. Either way, your current water heater isn't able to provide you the hot water you need for your household. A new high-capacity water heater will give you the hot water you need for all your needs, including multiple daily showers, and dishwasher loads.

Improved Energy Efficiency

If you've been noticing that your gas bill is going up each month, even though you're using less gas, your water heater could be the culprit. Older water heaters aren't as energy efficient as they should be, which means you're going to be spending more money to heat your water. As your older water heater wears out, so does the heating element and the pilot. Once those begin to wear out, your water heater will have a harder time heating your water, which means you'll use more gas to get the job done. By installing a new energy-efficient water heater, you'll get the hot water you want, and the lower utility bills that you need.

Enhanced Safety

If your current water heater is wearing out, you could be putting your family, and your home, at risk. First, if the pilot light wears out, your home could fill with gas, or you could suffer a fire if the pilot light ignites improperly. Second, if the tank wears out, it could burst, which will send hot water pouring from the water heater. To prevent safety hazards associated with an outdated water heater, you should have it replaced.

Quieter Operation

If you're tired of listening to your old water heater clank and rattle throughout the night, it's time for an upgrade. New water heaters provide quieter operation, which means you'll be able to enjoy plenty of hot water without all the loud noises.
