When Is Water Heater Repair the Best Route?
It is typically best to repair a water heater rather than replace it if the problem is a minor issue such as a broken thermostat or a faulty valve. These types of repairs can often be made quickly and inexpensively by a professional plumber. It is also worth repairing a water heater if it is less than 10-15 years old and has been properly maintained. If the unit is still under warranty, it is advisable to contact the manufacturer for repair options.
However, if the water heater is leaking, making strange noises, not producing hot water, or is more than 10-15 years old, it may be more cost-effective to replace it rather than continue to repair it. In those cases, it is best to consult with a professional plumber to determine the best course of action.

The two main types of water heaters available today are traditional water heaters and tankless water heaters. Both systems have distinct advantages. Those looking for a water heater that will save money on upfront costs would benefit from purchasing a traditional system. Those who would rather save more money in the long term on the cost of energy should invest in a tankless unit. These condenser units are much more energy efficient. Both systems are suitable options for large homes that utilize a significant amount of hot water. Tankless water heaters, however, are the best choice for those looking for an option that will never leave them waiting for hot water.
What Size Water Heater Do I Need?
Homeowners planning to install a traditional water heater will need to make sure they select the appropriate size. A 30-gallon tank is typically sufficient for two occupants. Residences with four or more people will likely need a tank that holds 50 to 80 gallons. If a tankless system is preferred, the issue to be concerned with is the flow rate, which is measured in gallons per minute. The bigger the home, the higher the flow rate will need to be.
