Hot Water Tank Repair or Replacement? How To Know
It usually goes like this. You jump in the shower ready for a hot spray to start your day, and WHAM! It’s ice cold. Your water heater suddenly stopped heating water. Now the question is: Do you replace it or repair it?
Here are a few things to help you decide:
Your water heater can fail for a variety of reasons, but mostly, they fail because they’ve worn out. A water heater that’s over 10 years old is past its prime and will likely need replacing. However, if it’s a minor problem such as a stuck valve or pilot light, you can get by with a repair for now. If you’re unsure, call an emergency plumber and have them take a look.
