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
Did 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.
