Signs That You Need to Replace Your Water Heater

Leaking Temperature and Pressure Relief Valve

The Temperature and Pressure valve in your water heater is essential. It regulates pressure and temperatures inside the water tank. If you notice any leaks on your T&P valve, contact your plumber to get the water heater replaced.

A leaking T&P valve is a sign it is unable to handle the pressure in the tank. If your water heater has a faulty valve, it might explode.

Popping Noises

If you don’t perform the recommended maintenance routines on your hot water heater, it won’t be long before you replace it. Water heaters require regular flushing of the water tank. Overlooking this important routine results in sediment build-up in the tank. The sediments act as insulation between the heating element and the water.

Sediments also clog the Temperature & Pressure valve. When the T&P valve is unable to relieve high pressure or temperature, your water heater might explode.

Cold Water

A broken heating element can result in a water heater producing cold water. Your plumber can fix this problem by replacing the heating element. However, if your water tank is older than eight years, a replacement is more suitable.

Types of Water Heaters

Choosing the right water heater for your household can be quite challenging. There are several factors to consider when choosing a water heater. The major factors should be energy efficiency and cost. Below are the main types of water heaters and their features. These features should be able to help you make an informed decision.

Gas Water Heaters

Gas water heaters come with large storage tanks. To provide your household with ample hot water, you’ll need a slightly bigger tank. Therefore, if you have a large household or have a high demand for hot water, a gas water heater will be a great choice.

The initial cost for gas water heaters is higher than that of electric water heaters. That should not prevent you from buying one, though. Natural gas is cheap and also readily available in most areas. Therefore, the operation cost of gas water heaters is lower than that of electric water heaters.

Gas water heaters work faster than electric water heaters. They also tend to recover faster than their electric counterparts.

The major disadvantage of these water heaters is increased energy loss. They tend to suffer more heat loss from exhaust gases.

Tankless Hot Water Systems

These water heaters are much smaller than the standard tanks since they don’t come with storage tanks. They are made of electric coils that heat water instantly.

The instant heating of water eliminates standby energy losses. Tankless water heaters are said to be 24% more energy efficient than standard tank water heaters.

Tankless water heaters have lower operating costs compared to standard tank heaters. According to the U.S Department of Energy, tankless water heaters can save you more than $100 in energy costs yearly compared to their standard tank counterparts.

Tankless water heaters come with very minimal maintenance requirements. They don’t require any annual flushing.

Electric Water Heaters

Electric water heaters cost less to purchase compared to gas water heaters. The cost of operating one is, however, higher due to the high costs of electricity.

These heaters have just a few parts, which makes their installation process very easy. An electric water heater is more energy-efficient compared to a gas water heater. They are also environmentally friendly.

An electric water heater is pretty easy to maintain. You should, however, ensure that your water tanks get flushed annually.

Why You Shouldn't Install a Water Heater Yourself.

If you’re thinking of purchasing a water heater and installing it yourself, remember that the process is no average Do It Yourself project. You must have electrical, plumbing, and even carpentry skills. You should also be familiar with local building codes.

Below are even more reasons why you shouldn’t install a water heater yourself.

Saves Time

Hot water is essential for every household. When your water heater is faulty, you’d want it fixed as soon as possible. Fixing it yourself might take you forever, especially if you don’t have the necessary skills. To save time, you should leave Leavenworth water heater installation projects to the professionals.

Stress-free services

Professional water heater installers services provide you with peace of mind. They handle their installations correctly the first time. A correctly installed water heater spares you the trouble of repairing the appliance right after its installation.

Fast Online Services.

Hot water companies have online websites that are managed by helpful and friendly staff. Their communication is great, and booking appointments is pretty fast.


Failing to observe the local codes can expose you to physical and legal risks. Incidences like water heater explosions can be deadly. You can avoid such a catastrophe by hiring a professional to replace your faulty water heater.

Also, when you hire a hot water company to install your hot water system, they take up any risks that come with it. They even have insurance plans to cover these risks. Trying to perform unpermitted work poses safety concerns for you and your household.

How Much Does a Leavenworth Water Heater Installation and Replacement Cost?

Hot water companies offer their customers customized price estimates. Several factors determine how much your plumber charges you for the project. Below are some of those factors

The Location of Your Water Heater.

How accessible is your water heater? The more accessible the appliance is; the fewer labor charges you incur. If your water heater is located in hard to reach parts of your home, such as the basement, your project will likely cost you more.

Additional Costs

After a replacement, your old water heater will need to be disposed. If these charges are not included in your estimate, you will need to hire a disposal company to collect the old water heater.

Type of Water Heater

There are a wide variety of water heaters to choose from in the markets. The costs for all these models vary. Therefore, the charges stated in your estimate greatly depend on the initial cost of the water heater.

If you choose a tankless hot water system, the replacement charges will be higher than a standard water tank. Also, if you are choosing between a gas water heater and an electric one, the gas water heater will cost you more.

The amount you spend on replacement depends on the amount and nature of work involved. The more the work, the higher the replacement charges.

Leavenworth is the county seat of Leavenworth County, Kansas, and is part of the Kansas City metropolitan area. Located on the bank of the Missouri River, it is the location of Fort Leavenworth and named after the fort, which was built nearly 30 years before the city was founded in 1854. The city was the first to be incorporated in the state of Kansas and was a major supply base for settlers as they settled the American West. Kansas was a Union state during the Civil War and the city played a major role as a place for African-American refugee slaves seeking freedom to settle in. Today, the city is home to the Richard Allen Cultural Center and Museum, the C.W. Parker Carousel Museum, and a 28-block historic shopping district.
