3 Reasons to Upgrade Your Water Heater

We offer a wide variety of water heater services in Algonquin. Whether you need your leaking water heater fixed or you’d like to purchase an entirely new system, you can always count on our team to get the job done right. However, sometimes the decision isn’t so clear-cut. When new technology comes out, it can be easy to think that your water heater doesn’t need to be upgraded because it “works just fine”—but how do you really know that?

Sure, a water heater might be providing a home with hot water, but we need to examine how well it does its job. If a water heater can’t provide enough hot water, or if it’s constantly running into problems, then it might be time to upgrade the system. And, with new advancements in the field of water heater technology, there are some excellent options to choose from!

1. Your Water Heater Might Be the Wrong Size

Did you know that a tank water heater is sized specifically for your home and lifestyle? If you’ve got 6 children and a second rental part of your property that requires hot water, you’re going to need a fairly large water tank to supply the house with the right amount of hot water. However, families and situations change, so it’s likely that you’re in a different hot water situation now than you were about 5 or 10 years ago. At this point, you might need a hot water tank that’s double the size of the one you had now!

This can be pretty evident if your hot water heater can’t meet the demand of your family, or if it’s constantly running out of hot water. There might not be something wrong with it, but it just might need to be upgraded to fit your lifestyle.

2. Your Water Heater Is Suffering From Constant Leaks

A leaking hot water heater is never a good thing. One leak is something that you still need to call a professional to have addressed. If you’re seeing puddles around the water heater, or you’re getting a foul odor from mold growing around a leak, then you should absolutely call our team to have it fixed.

However, multiple leaks can mean that your system is starting to fail. This is a big deal because it’s probably not going to stop any time soon. We recommend considering a hot water heater upgrade.

3. You Have Different Needs

Perhaps you’re just not happy with your tank water heater. That’s okay! There are systems out there that can heat water in a much different, more efficient, and more comfortable way. Think about a tankless water heater system, for instance, that can superheat water as it enters your home so that it’s ready and available for use almost immediately! These systems are more energy-efficient because they don’t use energy to store hot water throughout the day.

All we’re saying is to keep your eyes open to your lifestyle preferences and the technology that’s available. You never know what might come around the corner!
