Nothing can be more frustrating than turning on the shower to discover that you only have ice-cold water and are unable to enjoy a hot shower.
When you have a water heater problem, the issue can be extremely inconvenient. The problem will not fix itself, and you should consult with us at Plumb Level to diagnose the cause of your water heater problem. From there, we can determine how to replace it.
You can plan for a gas water heater to last anywhere between 8-10 years or an electric water heater to last anywhere between 10-15 years as long as it's regularly maintained, which includes inspection, flushing, and draining.
Other factors that affect the lifespan of water heaters include the manufacturer, usage and demand, frequency of maintenance, and the extent of mineral buildup due to hardwater in your water system.
Our Brenham plumbers can help you schedule regular water heater maintenance. Having your unit maintained on an annual basis will allow you to keep it working efficiently and you will know when it’s time for a replacement before any problems arise.
Is your water heater exhibiting frequent problems? Is it also near the end of its lifespan? A new unit may be the most cost-effective option. You will also need to replace the unit if you are facing a significant problem, such as a rupture in the tank.
A repair is ideal if your unit is still new. In this case, the problem is often able to be fixed without hassle. Our technicians can inspect your unit and determine which course of action is best for you. Contact our Brenham water heater repair technicians for an inspection.
