Repair or Replace? | Billy the Sunshine Plumber

If your water heater isn’t working, should you repair it or replace it? Billy the Sunshine Plumber can help you decide.

Your mind was on New Year’s Eve and whether to take the kids to one of the events that area attractions are offering or simply to stay home and have a relatively quiet evening. But you were jolted back to the present when you stepped into the shower and got an ice cold shower. Now you’re worried about having to replace your water heater at a bad time financially.

Not so fast. You might not have to replace your water heater. It depends on several things. Among those are age of the appliance and what’s caused it to go haywire.

If it’s a conventional storage-tank water heater nearing the end of its 10 to 13-year life, replacement is obvious: New models are up to 20 percent more efficient and can save up to $700 in energy costs over the life of the unit,” houselogic.com says. “However, if your water heater is only a few years old, repair may be the way to go.”

Houselogic.com notes that water heaters have few moving parts so only a limited number of things can go wrong: The pilot light on a gas heater goes out; circuit breaker on an electric water heater trips; burner or heating element fails; thermostat breaks; or valve sticks. A plumber can easily replace any of these at a low cost. So, it one of these is causing your problem, it’s best to repair rather than replace. But, an older and/or leaky water heater should be replaced.
