Hot Water Heaters have come a long way over the years, and an upgrade will let you take advantage of the latest energy efficiency rates and the lowest costs available. Talk with Bruni & Campisi about tankless and hot water storage tank installation in Westchester County, NY and Greenwich & Stamford, CT.
Benefits of Installing a Hot Water Heater in an Older Home
Due to their design, hot water heaters lose a good deal of heat to the environment. Water is stored in a large tank and heated continuously until it is used. Many homeowners prefer this style of water heater due to familiarity and cost. Traditional hot water system installation isn’t a small job, however, and should not be undertaken by a novice.
Installing a hot water heater comes with risks to your home and your safety. Properly installed, you’ll enjoy years of reliable warm water every time you turn on the tap. In contrast, mistakes made during those initiation stages will plague your system throughout its service life. No matter which model you select for your hot water installation, a poor job will rob you of efficiency benefits and drive up your long-term costs.
Sometimes it’s best to replace hot water heater equipment that’s older and make way for updated benefits. Consider the add-ons you have available through today’s latest systems. Leak detection all by itself is worth the upgrade.
When Is It Time for Hot Water System Replacement?
It’s a good idea to replace a hot water heater that’s over 10 years old. This is the high-end of expected service life, and the period during which energy efficiency typically suffers the most. The costs for heating your water accounts for roughly 15 percent of your electric bill, so there are financial benefits for making the switch to an upgraded EnergyStar unit.
Replacing a hot water system is also a good idea if your unit is leaking around the bottom or delivering poor heating performance. It’s hard to tell whether these problems will be an easy fix or require something drastic until you take a closer look. Call us whenever your hot water heater begins to experience problems.
