Your home is well-equipped with everyday luxuries that most people take for granted. Heat, air, hot water – all things that add to your comfort and peace within your home. So, when your water heater goes on the fritz, that’s a problem for you and your family’s everyday comfort. The simple solution? Call on Cascade Energy Services for hot water heater repair near Lake Stevens.
You should already be getting an annual checkup for preventative care and maintenance of your water heater, both tanked and tankless. However, some in-between issues can occur, especially when your water heater has some age on it.
Common signs of issues with your water heater include:
- Inconsistent or rapid fluctuations in water temperatures.
- Discolored (rust-colored or yellowed) water from the shower or sink faucets.
- Abnormally low water pressure or rapid fluctuations in water pressure while in use.
- Unusual clanging or clanking comes from the water heater.
- Water leaks or excessive condensation on the water heater tank.
Does Your Water Heater Need to be Replaced?
In some cases, your water heater will need a total replacement. The replacement process can take two to four hours for installation and inspection to ensure the new water heater is running properly. Before that, it will take upwards of one hour to drain and disconnect the old water heater. In total, you are looking at three to five hours of labor.
On average, tanked water heaters, specifically for residential homes, have a lifespan of 12 to 13 years, with annual preventative maintenance and care. In contrast, tankless water heaters can last 20 to 30 years with proper maintenance and upkeep.
