Should I Replace My Water Heater?
Did you know the average lifespan of a water heater is less than a decade? It’s true—depending on things like water quality and amount of use, the average home water heater system will generally last only around eight years in the United States. That means there is a strong chance you will have to replace your water heater approximately once per decade, and that time may very well be coming for you. When it does, Sierra Air, Inc. offers comprehensive replacement services that set up your new water to provide you with energy-efficient and reliable hot water for many years to come.
It may be time to replace your water heater if any of the following are true:
- Your water heater has sprung a leak
- Your water heater is producing inconsistently-heated water
- Your water heater is consuming a ton of energy
- Your water heater is showing visible signs of aging (rust, cracking, obvious deformation)
- Your hot water has a distinct rust color or metallic smell
Water Heater Repairs
Some problems with water heaters can be repaired, allowing you to keep your system working for the time being. For water heaters that have not yet reached the age of eight, this might be the ideal option for you. A dying heating element, faulty thermostat, or inconsistent pilot light may be annoying, but they are all issues that can be fixed with most major water heaters. Whatever your issue might be, Sierra Air, Inc. offers a repair that can fix it. We work with both gas and electric-type water heaters, and we have the parts in stock to offer repairs for all makes and models. We even offer connection repairs and diagnostics too!
However, the one repair we do not recommend is fixing a leaking tank. In the overwhelming majority of cases, a leaking tank is a sign that the tank has reached a point where corrosion has made it no longer viable to continue using. Sealing the leak will generally only delay the inevitable—the tank will eventually start leaking again from a different location, and that will involve yet another repair. All the while, sealing a leak means cutting into the insulation around your tank, ruining its energy efficiency permanently. Plus, when you consider the urgency of this issue, a replacement is generally the far more reliable, faster, and cost-effective solution in both the short and long term.
