Is It Time For A Water Heater Replacement In Your Decatur Home?
Wondering What You Should Do For A Water Heater Replacement?
Of course, the best time to call a water heater replacement is before you find yourself in a freezing cold shower, shivering, and trying to summon the courage to plunge into the icy water to get clean. We do love our hot showers.
It’s hard to imagine living today without hot water. We depend on hot water for everything from taking showers and baths, to cleaning our homes, to having sanitized dishes. Unless you’re living in a cave somewhere, or unless you’re a dog who hates baths, it’s likely that you rank a hot shower right up there as a basic necessity along with food and shelter. So, when your hot water heater breaks down, it can be a bit traumatic. We understand that.
Hot Water Heaters by the Numbers
Your hot water heater accounts for 14 to 18 percent that you pay in your utility bills. It is your second biggest expense and will cost you up to $600 a year. The hot water heater usually produces around 64 gallons of hot water a day for families on average. Hot water heaters can be inefficient, especially if you have an older model that isn’t Energy Star rated, which is why if you have an older hot water heater, you may wish to get it replaced.
Does My Water Heater Need Replacing?
If you’re like us, you can let little things slip your mind, like the age of your hot water heater. You may have bought your place and never gave your hot water heater a second glance. It works okay, so what’s the big deal, right? Well, it can be a big deal because guaranteed it will be the coldest day in winter here in Atlanta when it decides to break down. And then you’re stuck without hot water and an emergency call to us at Morningside Plumbing. While we don’t mind coming out for an emergency repair (or more likely, a replacement) run, we recommend you skip the hassle and replace your water heater now while it may be silently plotting to go out.
Don’t take our word for it. The United States Energy Department says that your old water heater tank will last between 10 to 15 years. If yours is acting up, not giving you plenty of hot water, or just making you feel a little tepid about it (like the water it produces), it’s probably a good time to call us and have us replace your water heater now.
