Signs You May Need a New Tankless Water Heater
You may notice a few red flags that indicate common plumbing issues in your home or business. Whether your residential or commercial structure is currently served by a traditional, tankless, or hybrid water heater, there are some signs you can be aware of that indicate your system may be past its useful life. One common sign that your water heater deteriorates beyond economical repair is rust-colored water coming out of your faucets and showerheads. Excessive corrosion inside your water heating unit can force its way into your water supply and reduce your water quality, expose your hair and skin to abrasive rust, and stain your towels and clothing.
Another sign that your water heater has run its course is if your water has an unusual metallic taste or smell. That can indicate deterioration inside your water heater unit, and over time, the material that’s flaking off your water heater’s interior and into your water supply can cause damage to your health, your fixtures, and your plumbing system.
One other thing to consider when determining if you need a new water heater is its age. With proper routine maintenance, a water heater can serve your home or office for well over a decade, which can help you avoid incurring the cost of repair or replacement in the immediate future. Nonetheless, even the best cared for water heaters will reach an expiration date. If your traditional water heater is 15 years old or your tankless water heater is over 20 years old, it may not be working as efficiently as it could.
Benefits of Tankless Water Heaters
Apollo Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning Service can install and repair different types of water heaters, but we’ve noticed an influx of interest in tankless systems over the past few years. Tankless water heaters offer our Washington and Oregon customers many benefits, including a longer life than traditional water heaters. Although the initial cost of a tankless water heater may be higher, when you consider the durability and lower operational costs, you could end up saving money down the road. Reduced utility costs can be associated with tankless water heaters because they supply hot water on demand. Unlike traditional water heaters that require a lot of energy to keep a large tank of water hot for future usage, tankless water heaters supply hot water only when needed. Additionally, tankless water heaters require much less space than traditional units. For many home and business owners, the benefits of tankless water heaters provide much-needed space, cost, and time savings.
