Need a New Water Heater? Questions to Ask Before a Water Heater Replacement

There’s nothing quite as soothing to a tired body and soul as a nice, hot and relaxing shower. Conversely, there’s nothing quite as shocking as going from a soothing shower to an icy one! If this has happened to you one too many times, if your water heater is old, or if you are tired of your water heater being unable to keep up with household demands, it might be time for a water heater replacement.

Water heaters can be a significant expense for some families, so it’s important to do a little research before taking the plunge. With over 30 years of experience, our team at Carolina Plumbing & Repair have come up with a few questions that can help narrow down your choices for your water heater replacement.

First, what is the budget for your water heater replacement? With today’s water heaters, you have good, viable options in every price range, so the first thing you need to do is determine your budget so that your budget doesn’t freeze like your morning shower.

After you have determined a budget, you’ll need to decide capacity. Generally, larger families like a larger capacity for their water heater replacement.

Finally, what type of efficiency are you looking for? Tankless water heaters are a great choice for people who only want to pay for the water to be heated when they actually need hot water. There are also energy efficient water heaters available if you want a tank.
