You may think that the only time you would want to think about water heater replacement would be if your water heater is broken. While we agree that a broken water heater warrants a replacement, we have seen other situations in which homeowners have invested in water heater replacement and have been so happy with their choice. So just in case you haven’t ever thought about this, we’d like to give you three great reasons to consider water heater replacement, even if your water heater isn’t broken.
1. Go Tankless. Tankless water heaters are the newest technology and can deliver hot water on demand. If you can afford the higher initial cost to buy one, you will actually save money in the long run in energy costs.
2. Dual Tank Water Heater. Are you tired of running out of hot water when you shower? Would you like the comfort of knowing that there will always be enough hot water for everything in your house? A dual tank water heater doubles the amount of hot water that you will have available on demand.
3. Switching to Gas vs. Electric. Water heaters can be powered by either electricity or natural gas. If you have an electric water heater, you may want to think about switching to a gas-powered one. There are two main reasons for this: first, your energy costs will be lower with a gas water heater. Second, your water heater will still be able to work if you lose power.
