In our last couple of blogs, we’ve been giving you advice on the decision to either repair or replace your hot water heater. To recap, our Edwardsville plumber has already discussed the age of your hot water heater, the severity of the problem that your water heater has and how well you’ve maintained your water heater over the years. We just have a couple more things for you to consider to clear up the question of repair or replacement:

  • Other issues – Is this issue the first issue you’ve ever had or is it just one of the many problems that has come up with your hot water heater. If this is the first issue you’ve ever had with your water heater, it may be in good enough shape to repair it and move on with your life. On the other hand, if your hot water heater regularly has issues, as long as you care for it properly, this could be a sign that there is a deeper, underlying problem. Constant issues could also alert you to the fact that your current hot water heater may not necessarily meet all of your current needs. 
  • Energy efficiency – If you have an older, outdated hot water heater that needs an expensive repair, you may actually save money in the end by replacing it with a more efficient model. Installing a tankless water heater now may seem like a big expense, it could tremendously help your budget in the long run.
