When you need hot water to take a shower, wash your dishes, or do your laundry, you turn a knob on your faucet or washer and have hot water appear almost like magic. However, you need to remember that behind each bit of hot water is a water heater hard at work in your home. Because of its importance to your daily life, it is vital to not take your water heater for granted. Should you have questions about your water heater or think it may be in need of repair or replacement, call on your local plumbing pros here at Ben Franklin Plumbing.
How Long Will it Last?
On average, most of today’s modern water heaters are made to last about 10 years. If your water heater is at least a decade old, it may be time for a replacement. However, if you are having problems with your water heater, it may be only a fuse or other issue that can be easily fixed. To find out for sure, let a Ben Franklin Plumbing pro give your water heater a checkup.
What Kind Do I Need?
As water heaters have become more and more modern thanks to technological advances, you now have many types from which you can choose. For example, you can get standard electric water heaters that have a 40-50 gallon capacity, gas water heaters, or even tankless water heaters that are often much smaller yet still give you the hot water you need each day. If you have an older water heater and know it’s time for an upgrade, contact us here at Ben Franklin Plumbing to find out the best option for you and your home.
