Water Heater and Tankless Water Heater Repair and Replacement

When a water heater starts malfunctioning, it can disrupt your daily routine and cause inconvenience. Ascension Plumbing understands the importance of a properly functioning water heater and offers professional water heater repairs and replacements.

Repair vs. Replacement Considerations
  • Age and Condition: If your water heater is over ten years old, it’s likely nearing the end of its lifespan. In such cases, a new unit instead of repairing can ensure long-term reliability and avoid a possible waste of money.
  • Water Leak: If the leak is coming from a peripheral component or plumbing connection, it may be repairable. However, if the leak originates from the tank or water heater itself, unit replacement is likely necessary.
  • Lack of Hot Water: When your water heater fails to produce hot water or isn’t reaching the desired temperature, it could be due to a component failure. If the tank is in good condition and not too old, repairing these components may be a viable option.
  • Anode Rod: If your water heater has a damaged anode rod or shows signs of corrosion, it may be more cost-effective to replace the unit rather than attempting repairs.

    Replacement Options

    There are various types of water heaters on the market and it can be challenging to know which will meet your home’s needs. Before beginning work, Ascension Plumbing will discuss the installation options with you, allowing you to make an informed decision about the type of system put in. Regardless of the model you choose, you can be confident that our plumbing technicians have the tools and skills necessary to install it correctly and safely.

    • Electric: Electric water heaters use rods to heat water in a tank. This is the model that is standard in most homes. Since newer models are more efficient, many homeowners upgrade to these systems.
    • Gas: As long as you have a gas line, gas water heaters are an efficient way to heat water in your home. If you don’t already have a gas line, however, you’ll need to install one to use this model.
    • Hybrid (heat pump): This model uses the air surrounding your home to heat your water, using significantly less energy. A hybrid water heater can reduce energy costs by up to 60%. You may also be able to apply for tax deductions when using this system.
    • Tankless: Unlike traditional tank-based systems, tankless water heaters only heat water as needed instead of pre-heating it and having it sit in a tank, cutting down on water and energy usage. Because of its smaller size, it can be placed in a variety of locations.

    Making the correct decision is crucial to ensure a consistent hot water supply while maximizing energy efficiency and minimizing costs. Ascension Plumbing can help!
