Is water heater replacement the best option for your Alliston home?
It is certainly not fun to face the decision about whether to repair the water heater in your Alliston, Ontario home or go with water heater replacement instead. At Andrew’s Heating & Air Conditioning, we can help you assess the shape of your water heater and make a decision on what is best for you and your family. We have a wealth of experience, along with very good resources and instincts. This means we are your best option when it comes to getting the honest information you need in order to make this decision.
One of the things we will discuss with you will be the age of your current water heater. If your water heater is at the relative end of its lifespan as given by the manufacturer, it makes more sense to seek water heater replacement than to put any money into a repair. We don’t just look at the age in terms of what life it was forecasted to enjoy. We also look at the realistic lifespan based on the condition of the water heater and how well it has been maintained.
Another consideration is whether the water heater is meeting the needs of your family. If you consistently run out of hot water, you may want to upgrade to a larger unit or a tankless model even if the repair is only minor. In some cases, you may want to downgrade to a smaller unit to enjoy the lower operating costs. You can also accomplish savings by upgrading to a newer, more energy-efficient model.
If you have been told that water heater replacement is necessary and you are not confident that this is the best course of action, feel free to call us for a second opinion. We’ll be happy to answer any questions you may have about water heater replacement.
