Hot water is essential not only for taking showers and baths but also for accomplishing almost all our household chores. Therefore, water heaters are a necessity in every home.

With over 15 years of experience, we are the experts when it comes to all things water heater.

5 Signs You Need Water Heater Replacement

1. Reddish brown water - If you're noticing discoloration in your hot water, then it's very likely that your unit is rusting on the inside. If both your cold water and your hot water are seemingly rusty, then it's probably your pipes. But if only your hot water is reddish brown then give our Portland water heater replacement experts a call.

2. A leaky unit - If you're seeing a puddle of water at the base of your water heater then you probably have a crack in your tank and it should be replaced. As water heats up it expands and creates pressure on the unit and it reaches a breaking point after enough pressure.

3. Old age - Tank water heaters usually last about 10 years, so if it has been longer than 10 years since you've had your unit, you should call our Portland water heater replacement pros to at least inspect your unit before offering you a new one.

4. Smelly water - If your hot water has a strange smell to it, then paint from the inside of the tank is most likely peeling off into your hot water. This is a sign that you need to get your water heater replaced by a trained professional.

5. Continuous repairs - If your unit is needing repairs time and time again, you're better off getting it replaced as you'll save time and money.

Tank vs. Tankless Water Heaters

The two main options when getting a new water heater are tank-style and tankless water heaters. Although we believe that any of the two can be perfect for your home, the ultimate choice will depend on your particular needs and goals. Our Portland water heater installation experts will walk you through everything in detail, but in the meantime here are some advantages and disadvantages to tank vs tankless water heaters.

To give you a clearer overview, here are the advantages of each option:

  • Traditional tank water heater – Can store between 20 to 80 gallons of hot water, has a lower initial cost, simpler to operate so repairs are easier and more cost-effective
  • Tankless water heater – Heats water on-demand so it’s more energy efficient, gives you savings on energy bills, has a longer lifespan than tank-style, does not consume floor space

Because we want you to make an informed decision, we also present you the drawbacks of each option:

  • Traditional tank water heater – Occupies more space, uses more energy because it needs to heat and reheat the water in the tank, may eventually run out of hot water
  • Tankless water heater – Has a higher initial cost, may take a while to heat the water sufficiently, simultaneous use may result in inconsistent water temperature
