When is the Right Time for a New Water Heater?

The average life expectancy of a water heater is between 8 and 15 years, and an old water heater can operate at low efficiency for years before it finally fails. Unless your water heater is already broken, it can be difficult to know the right time to purchase a new one. The truth is, sooner or later your old water heater will break down, leaving you with no hot water, or worse, a flooded basement. It could be time to replace your water heater if:

  • Your water heater is more than 10 years old
  • There is leaking around your unit
  • Your water heater fails to consistently produce hot water
  • You notice rust-colored water
  • You hear rumbling and banging inside your unit
  • Your family has grown, increasing hot water demand

If you’re experiencing any of these signs, don’t risk serious damage from a flooded basement. When it’s time to replace your old water heater, call BGE HOME. Our Energy and Comfort Consultants are ready to help you find the right water heater for your family’s needs.

Save Energy & Money with a New Water Heater Installation

water heater installationDid you know that heating water is typically the second largest energy expense in your home? Usually, this energy usage accounts for about 18% of your total energy bill. According to ENERGY STAR, if your water heater is more than 10 years old, now is the best time to plan its replacement. In addition to avoiding cold showers and a soaked basement, today’s new high-efficiency water heaters use much less energy than those manufactured 10 or 15 years ago. Simply replacing an older water heater can reduce the energy you use to heat water by up to half and help you save money. Check out our Energy Savings Calculator to see how much you might save by upgrading to an energy-efficient water heater.

Types of Water Heaters

If you’re looking for a new water heater, start by thinking about the type of water heater that’s right for your home. Your decision can vary greatly depending on how your current water heater is operating, the fuel type in your home, and the overall quality of the installation. BGE HOME offers a variety of water heater types to fit your needs:

  • Gas Water Heater: If your home uses gas as its primary energy source, you’ll most likely replace your existing water heater with a new gas water heater.
  • Electric Water Heater: For homes that are powered mainly by electricity, an electric water heater is likely the best option.
  • Tankless Water Heater: If you’re looking for a more energy-efficient alternative to a gas water heater, a tankless water heater could be the right choice for your home.
  • Heat Pump Water Heater: The energy factor of a heat pump water heater is more than twice the efficiency of a standard electric water heater.
  • Marathon Water Heater: The Marathon water heater has a lifetime guarantee, so it will be the last electric water heater you’ll buy for your home.

When deciding to buy a new hot water heater, there are a variety of factors to consider including your home’s energy source, your lifestyle and the level of energy savings you wish to achieve. You can trust the experts at BGE HOME to help you select the water heater that fits your budget and will help you achieve your energy savings goal.
