Water heaters don't last forever; in fact, the average tank water heater typically only lasts about 8 to 10 years on average. No matter how well you take care of your hot water system, there will come a time when it makes more sense to replace it rather than continually paying for repairs.
If it seems like that time has come for you, it's time to call Arctic Air Home Services. Our experts can install a number of different water heater systems, including electric, gas, or hybrid water heaters. Our Sarasota water heater installation technicians use high-quality equipment to ensure your new system lasts as long as possible.
We'll help you select the right water heater for your needs based on:
- The size of your household
- The amount of room you have to install the water heater
- Connections you currently have in place and whether you want to change the heating type
- Whether you want a standard tank water heater or an on-demand tankless unit
Signs You Need a New Water Heater
We know that most people are not keen to spend money on a replacement if their existing water heater can be repaired. However, there are many instances in which repairs are not possible, or they are simply not the most cost-effective option.
These signs indicate that your water heater probably needs to be replaced:
- Hot water appears rust-colored and/or has flecks of rust in it
- Visible rust on the water heater tank
- Water heater tank is leaking from the base
- Water heater is more than 10 or 15 years old
If your water heater needs to be replaced, financing is available.
Tankless Water Heater Installation in Sarasota
Tankless water heaters have a higher initial cost compared to tank systems. However, they are the more energy efficient option. Tank water heaters are constantly heating and reheating the water in the tank; as it cools, the heater will reheat the water. Eliminating that reheating process with a system that heats water only as it is needed means that you'll see significant savings on your utility bills.
Another benefit of tankless water heaters is the amount of space gained by not needing a large storage tank. Tankless systems hang on a wall feet off the ground, adding space to your garage or closet.
To learn whether tankless water heater installation is right for your household's hot water needs, give us a call today to request a consultation.
How Long Do Tankless Water Heaters Last?
While you may hesitate to go with a tankless water heater over a more traditional water heater because of the higher cost, you can expect it to last longer. A tankless water heater usually has a lifespan of around 15 years while a traditional heater typically only lasts around 10 years.
Tank Water Heater Installation
Tank water heaters come in various sizes typically ranging from 23 – 56 gallons. They are a more economical option than tankless, but they also have a significantly shorter lifespan. We carry and install any size of tank you may need. After installation, we recommend having your tank maintained yearly to keep it running optimally and to extend its lifespan. An annual water heater flush prevents clogging of the plumbing between the tank and kitchen and bathrooms in your home. Flushing also prevents mineral scale from forming on the heating elements, making the water heater more efficient.
