Signs That You Need to Replace Your Water Heater

Leaking Water Tank

A leaking water tank may be a result of corrosion or sediment buildup. Water heater replacement is the only solution there is for a leaking water tank. Don’t worry if your water tank is leaking. One-Shot Water Heaters are specialists in water heater replacements. Contact us to book an appointment.

Popping Noises

Popping sounds are a sign that your water tank may have mineral deposits at the bottom. This problem is common in areas that have hard water. Minerals aren’t a bad thing; your body needs them. But your water heater doesn’t.

The popping sounds come from the steam leaving the sediments. Popping sounds may persist even after a water tank gets flushed. If not addressed, pressure from steam bubbles may cause your water to explode.

Cold Water

Are you tired of taking cold showers? Then it’s time to replace your water heater. Coldwater from a water heater can result from sediment buildup in your water tank. When sediments settle between the burner and the water; water doesn’t get adequately heated.

Frequent Tank Leaks

This is another easily identified sign that there’s something wrong with your water heater. If your tank leaks water frequently, there’s a good sign that it is approaching the end of its lifespan, and you need to invest in water heater replacement. Check to make sure it’s the tank that’s leaking, not the connections – leaking connections can be repaired, where a leaky tank cannot.

Types of Water Heaters

There are many brands in the market today. Choosing one water heater that suits your home’s needs best can be challenging. Understanding the pros and cons of each can help you choose which model is suitable for you.

Let’s look at three common types of water heaters, their pros and their cons.

Gas Water Heaters

Gas water heaters have a high upfront cost compared to an electric water heater. But, the investment is worth it. Natural gas is very affordable; thus, running a gas water heater costs you less on energy.

They are fast at heating water. Gas water heaters have a higher First Hour Rating (FHR) value. This means that they can heat water faster than electric water heaters. The amount of energy lost when using a gas water heater is higher than that lost by an electric water heater.

Tankless Hot Water Systems​

Tankless hot water systems are the latest model in the market. If you like the idea of getting hot water instantly when you need it, a tankless heater is what you need. They don’t come with storage tanks; their electric coils heat water on demand.

They have a longer lifespan compared to electric and gas water heaters. Due to these unique features, tankless hot water systems need higher upfront costs. Their installations are more complex than standard heaters; thus, they cost more.

Tankless hot water system installations are not yet available at our company.

Electric Water Heaters

Electric water heaters have lower upfront costs compared to gas water heaters. Today, the most significant percentage of households use electricity. So, an electric water heater can serve you regardless of your location. This is not the case for gas water heaters; gas lines are not available in some localities. The major downside to electric water heaters is power outages.

If you still can’t decide which type of water heater suits your home best, contact One Shot Water Heaters. They will provide you with the estimated cost for installing each water heater. This information will help you make the right decision for your home.

The Benefits of Hiring a Professional to Install Your Water Heater

If you’re thinking of purchasing a water heater and installing it yourself, don’t do it!

Installing a water heater requires more than a few YouTube tutorials. The benefits of hiring a professional to install your water heater are many. Here are a few.

It is time-saving

Today, most people have hectic schedules. Hot water companies save you the trouble of disrupting your busy schedule. A professional plumber will install your water heater within the shortest time possible.

It keeps you stress-free.

If you’ve tried installing a water heater before, you know it’s a complex and time-consuming task. It can pose a safety threat, especially to an unskilled person. Hiring a professional gives you peace of mind. You are confident that the professional can handle your job correctly.

Fast Online Services.

Most hot water companies have websites. Booking an appointment with a professional plumber takes a few minutes nowadays. The websites are very resourceful too. You can get a price estimate for your installation project online. Most of the companies even allow you to pay for their services online.

It is a safer option.

Saving money might seem wise, but your safety is more important than money. A water heater is an appliance that uses both water and electricity. Mixing the two can be downright hazardous. You can avoid risks by leaving the job to an expert.

How Much Does a Water Heater Installation and Replacement Cost?

Getting a price estimate from your plumber lets, you know how much your project will cost. There are a few factors that contribute to the overall cost quoted on the estimate.

Accessibility of Your Water Heater.

Water located far from your home, the installation cost will be higher. Also, a water heater located in a basement or a tight inaccessible space will cost more on labor.

Additional Costs

Charges will be higher for an installation project that involves changing from one type of water heater to another. For instance, converting from an electric water heater to a gas one will need extra materials. Purchasing and installing a vent and a gas line will add to the final installation cost.

Type of Water Heater

There are electric-powered water heaters and gas-powered water heaters. A gas water heater costs more than an electric one, first due to its high upfront cost. Second, its installation process is more complex than that of electric heaters. The high installation and upfront cost result in higher overall charges.
