Water Heater Replacement in Long Beach

One of the main appliances in your house is the water heater. No one would find it amusing if they turned on the shower and only cold water came out!

For this reason, it's critical to recognize the warning indications when a water heater has to be replaced so that you are not unprepared for a freezing splash.

These are some of the most important things to be aware of so you can call Benjamin Franklin Plumbing of Long Beach to help:

  • The age of your water heater is ten years or more. Water heaters typically have a ten-year lifespan and are then considered to be on borrowed time. It is time to start looking for a new one if yours is at least ten years old or you can't recall when it was last replaced. Benjamin Franklin of Long Beach are experts with Water Heater Installations only offering quality brands that offer extended warranty options to protect your home investment.
  • Leaks are visible around the water heater. Puddles of water are a major indicator that the weather is about to change. Not only does this indicate that your water heater needs to be replaced, but leaks can cause costly water damage and cause major problems for your house. Benjamin Franklin Plumbing of Long Beach techs can evaluate the leaks and provide you a plan of action the same day.
  • There are odd noises coming from your water heater. It shouldn't be popping, crackling, or snapping like a bowl of cereal. This can be an indication of silt accumulation in the tank. Benjamin Franklin Plumbing of Long Beach techs are highly skilled to evaluate this.
  • The water has an odd taste or smell. Take caution if the water tastes or smells metallic. It probably indicates that the tank of the heater is corroding. Alternatively, it can indicate that your water is hard, which frequently has a metallic, sulfurous, or acidic taste. Let the experts take a look.
  • You notice that your sink has rust. Hard water may also be to blame for this. But it might also be another indication that the tank is damaged, which could lower the quality of your water and possibly result in leaks. Either way, call Benjamin Franklin Plumbing of Long Beach to discuss your needs.
  • A lot of hot water is used by your family. Your water heater will be used far more frequently than one in a single-person home if you have a large household, especially if there are many individuals who enjoy taking long, hot showers. Thus, it might degrade more quickly.
  • Your water warms up, but not too much. It's probably time to replace the heater if your water seems lukewarm right out of the tap but never quite gets hot enough. 
     

Our plumbing experts will put together some options ranging from repairing your water heater to replacement, and how to choose a water heater if you need to buy a new one but don't know where to start. 

You might also want to consider a tankless water heater. Tankless, or on-demand water heaters, heat water directly without a storage tank, meaning they deliver a steady supply of hot water through your pipes and out of your faucets. They are estimated to be around 34% more efficient than a traditional water heater – though they are more expensive to install.
