Your Water Heater Will Send Up Some Red Flags

Obviously, if you don't have hot water, you know something is wrong. And if you've checked the electric supply, gas valves, or other quick fixes, the water heater may need repairs. But here are some red flags to look for.

Inconsistent Temperatures? Time For a New Thermostat

If your water heats up a little bit, or if it fluctuates from day to day or during a shower, you might need a new thermostat or heating element. This can be frustrating for homeowners, but it's likely that you can get by with a repair instead of a fully new water heater installation.

Your Water is Rusty - A Bad Sign

This red flag is written about often. Rusty or muddy water indicates corrosion, and you probably can't salvage or repair the water tank. We will most likely need to speak with you about budget-friendly replacement options.

Do You Hear a Banging Sound?

Don't worry, nobody is trying to escape from your water heater. But creaking or knocking sounds may indicate a buildup of sediment in the tank, and that will reduce efficiency and eventually lead to damage. You're better off addressing this problem before it leads to costly repairs.

Leaks Around Your Water Heater

Leaks are a straightforward plumbing issue, water heaters included. If you see water pooling around the base of your water heater, call our emergency plumbers in Marietta right away!

Replacing Vs. Repairing Your Water Heater

We are as helpful as possible when we visit a home with a water heater problem. We are also honest. If we can fix your water heater for a low price, and it will give you several more years of output, we will do that. But if we can't justify fixing the water heater because of its condition, we'll be honest about that too.

When To Replace Your Water Heater

If your water heater has given you more than 10-15 years of service, you are ahead of the curve. At this point, you need to start proactively budgeting for its inevitable replacement. If you have a heater that has gone more than 20 years, you're living on borrowed time.

There's an argument to be made that you should replace your water heater when:

  • It is older than 15 years

  • Is NOT an emergency

  • You have had time to budget for it

You do not want to deal with an emergency water heater replacement. We highly recommend that you get it done while you have time to research, price out different models, and can make a comfortable decision.

If your heater requires multiple repairs each year, is giving you terrible energy efficiency, or simply can't keep up with the size of your family, it's time for a replacement.

Costs of Water Heater Replacement in Marietta

Getting a New Water Heater With a Tank

A new water heater with a tank from Bradford White or Rheem (the two most common brands) will likely cost between $500 and $2,000 for 50-75 gallons. Many Gladiator models are even cheaper. We will then give you a transparent quote on the actual installation and removal of the old unit once we are able to assess the situation. There are plenty of options above and below those price points, and we can give you a thorough list of options.

Going Tankless

Tankless water heaters are all the rage because they take up less space, use up less energy, last 20+ years, and provide endless supplies of hot water. Homeowners often recoup the higher initial cost of these units within 2-3 years of installation. Rheem, Navien, Rinnai, Takagi, and other brands supply these systems, and you'll need an expert installer to get it up and running for you. Give us a call! We will tell you everything you need to know about the differences between traditional and tankless water heaters.
