Does Your Water Heater Need Replacement? Here's How to Know.

Would you want your water heater producing cold water in the middle of winter? Probably not. A timely replacement of your failing hot water system can save you this trouble. If you are not aware of what signs to look out for, here are the main signs.

Lukewarm Water

Lukewarm water is an early sign that you need to replace your hot water system. Does your water heater take too long to heat water but still ends up giving you lukewarm water? If yes, start budgeting for a new water heater.

Lukewarm water might be a result of sediment build-up around the heating element or an electrical problem.

Popping Sounds

Popping sounds coming from your water heater are a sign that your water heater is close to failing. The popping sounds are usually more noticeable when your heater gets older. They are mainly caused by sediment build-up inside your water tank.

Sediments tend to overwork your water heater. Its energy consumption increases while its efficiency decreases. They also create cracks on your tank, causing it to start leaking.

Flushing your tank may help solve this problem. But if the popping sounds persist, you should replace that water heater.


A leaking tank or dripping pipes is a sign that you should take action. Your plumber may resolve this problem by replacing a valve or tightening the connections. In some instances, the connection might require replacement. A leak may also indicate that your water tank is cracked or corroded. If the tank is damaged, your water heater certainly needs replacement.

The Main Types of Water Heaters.

With the many water heaters available in the market today, you may be uncertain about which model to buy. Below are the main types of hot water heaters, their pros, and their cons.

If you still find it challenging to choose a water heater, feel free to contact One Shot Water Heaters. Our experts will help you select a model that is best for your needs and budget.

Gas Water Heaters

Gas water heaters are among the most popular water heater options.


Gas water heaters have lower operating costs compared to electric water heaters. Natural gas is cheaper than electricity.

They have high First Hour Rating values. Therefore, they heat water faster than electric water heaters.


Gas water heaters come at high initial costs. Their installation is also costlier than that of electric and solar water heaters.

Gas water heaters are less environmentally friendly. They release a significant amount of greenhouse gases into the environment.

Electric Hot Water System

Of all water heaters available in the market, electric water heaters are the most affordable options,


Electric water heaters come at lower upfront costs compared to gas and solar water heaters. They are energy efficient; they use most of the energy they receive, ensuring just a minimal portion of it is wasted.

Unlike gas water heaters that regularly produce carbon monoxide, electric water heaters are environmentally friendly.


Electric water heaters are affected by power outages. Their operating costs are also very high; the cost of electricity is higher than that of natural gas.

Tankless Hot Water System

Tankless water heaters are the latest model in the market. They are designed to produce hot water instantly. One Shot Water Heaters is not offering tankless water heater services at the moment.


They save you space. These water heaters don’t come with storage tanks. They are smaller in size and can easily be mounted on walls.

Not suitable for large families. The absence of a storage tank limits their hot water supply. If your household uses lots of hot water at once, many are the times you’ll run out of hot water.

Why You Should Hire a Professional Water Heater Services

If you’re thinking of installing a hot water system on yourself, you may want to reconsider that. Water heater installation is not easy. The consequences of a simple mistake can be extremely dangerous. For safety purposes, your water heater installation should be handled by a professional. Below are some of the benefits you’ll get by hiring a professional.

Safety standards vary from one type of water heater to another. Professionals are trained to deal with all types of water heaters and know what safety guidelines to follow.

Factors That Affect Water Heater Replacement Costs.

Getting a price estimate from your plumber is the best way of determining how much your replacement project will cost. However, it is important to be aware of some of the factors affecting the charges stated on a price estimate.

Type of Water Heater

The type of water you have determines how much you spend replacing it. If you have a tankless water heater, you will spend more on its replacement than you would on a standard tank water heater. The replacement costs for standard water heaters differ too. A gas water heater replacement is costlier than an electric water heater replacement.

The Location of Your Water Heater.

The location of your water heater affects its replacement. You might be wondering how location and costs are related. Well, the location of your water heater determined how much labor is needed to replace it. The more the labor, the costlier the replacement.

Permit Charges

Most counties require you to have a permit to replace a water heater. The cost of permits depends on factors such as upgrades and the need for on-site inspections.

When you get an estimate for your project, you can ask your plumber if the charges stated include a permit. If yes, you don’t have to worry about it. It means that your plumber had gotten the permit before installing your water heater.

Your water heater is one of the most important appliances in your house. If your water heater is not functioning as it should, our team is here to provide water heater replacement services at reasonable prices.
