There are so many options nowadays when it comes to choosing a new water heater. You have electric and gas units, plus tankless and hybrid alternatives; there are even solar water heaters available!

Most homeowners choose to go with a standard electric or gas water heater, but we can also help you look into high-efficiency, energy-saving options as well. We work with your budget and will make sure you make the best choice for your home.

Culpeper Home Services is the preferred water heater installation company in Culpeper County and surrounding areas. When you work with us, you can rest assured that your new unit will be set up safely to comply with local codes and regulations.

When is Water Heater Replacement Necessary?

While we make every effort to carry out water heater repairs before suggesting replacement, in some cases the most cost-effective option is to change out your old unit.

So how can you tell if you need a new water heater? Consider these factors to help you plan for replacement:

  • Your water heater constantly needs repair: Fixing a worn out component in your water heater may help you get a few more years of use out of your unit. But if you’re having to call for repair several times throughout the year, those service calls start to add up. Installing a new unit may prove more cost-effective in the long run.
  • Leaking or rust near the bottom of the tank: Rusted tanks are vulnerable to sudden ruptures, which can lead to significant water damage in your home if the tank bursts. Avoid this emergency by planning for water heater replacement as soon as possible.
  • The original warranty period has expired: If your water heater is well over 10 years old and suddenly experiences a problem, opting for replacement can help you save on repair costs over time.

How Long Do New Units Last?

The average life expectancy of standard water heaters (gas or electric) produced these days is 10–15 years. Tankless units may last up to 20 years. Homeowners with hybrid water heaters can expect their unit to last 12–15 years.

Keep in mind that maintenance plays a significant role as well. Annual inspections and tank flushing help keep your unit working efficiently and reduce the risk of unexpected breakdowns and costly repairs.

Know the warning signs of water heater trouble as well so you can call for help before the issue turns into a bigger headache. Common symptoms of an inefficient water heater include slow recovery periods, faulty pilot lights (in gas units), and leaking around the tank.
