Are you afraid your Water Heater will STOP working?
Updated: Mar 17
Having a water heater that works when you need it to be an absolute necessity during the cold Minnesota winters. You need the peace of mind that whenever you go into the shower you will have warm water, without any interruptions. If you have ever been through the horrible experience of being shocked by cold water in the middle of a warm shower you know how traumatic it can be. You can’t live in fear of unwanted cold showers.
Having a nice warm shower or opening the faucet and washing your hands with warm water is one of those basic commodities we don’t pay attention to very often. But when we don’t have it we get a cold reminder of how important having a reliable supply of warm water is. Getting warm water instantly whenever you open your faucet or when you turn on the shower is your water heater’s job.
If you’ve been having one too many surprises lately, it may be time to call the experts at ASP in water heater replacement.
Is your water heater worth fixing?
Saving money is in everyone’s mind. We never want to spend our hard earned money on home repairs if we can help it. But there are times when trying to save money can cost us more in the long run. Such is the case with fixing our water heater.
Whether your water heater is worth fixing depends on a couple of things: its age and what part is malfunctioning.
Most water heaters have a service life of around 10 to 15 years. Most water heaters come with a warranty that lasts around the same amount of time. If your water heater is at the end of its service life, repairing it may not be a good idea. You are just prolonging the inevitable fact that you will need to change it.
Water heaters have parts that suffer wear and tear. Some parts are affected more than others, so depending on which part is causing the malfunction, then replacement water heater may be the best option. Replacing some parts, such as the boiler, can cost almost as much as buying a new heater.
The right tools for the job
You need a water heater that works as efficiently as possible. Water heaters have optimal operating conditions; this means that there is a range of heating water where it works best. Whenever your water heater operates outside of this range, it will either consume more energy and/or suffer additional wear.
To determine the right capacity for your new water heater you will need an analysis by your water heater replacement experts. Bigger isn’t necessarily better, it’s much more important to get the right size for your needs.
