When you need water heater repair, it can be hard to determine what exactly is going on. While some issues can be repaired, some problems will require replacement. So how do you know which option is better for you?
The average lifespan of a water heater is around eight years. After this point, you’re pretty much on borrowed time, especially here in Arizona. The water in Chandler and much of the surrounding area is considered “hard water” due to the higher levels of minerals such as calcium and magnesium.
These minerals can cause water tanks to corrode more rapidly, and once the tank of your water heater is leaking, it is time for a replacement.
When is Water Heater Repair a Good Option?
If your water heater is relatively new and remains under warranty, water heater repair is most likely the best option for you. The best way to really know your options is to call in a trained professional to have a look. Trying to take on this task as a DIY project could potentially be dangerous, considering the presence of both scalding hot water and electricity.
Will Repair be the Right Investment?
In some cases, a water heater can be repaired, but may not be the ideal option. Maybe your current model is not as efficient as you’d like. Investing in a new one could help reduce your energy costs.
Or maybe you’ve been considering a solar hot water heater. Having one of these installed will provide eco-friendly, abundant hot water for years to come. Whether you choose a solar option or something else, newer models are designed for heightened efficiency and reliability.
