How to Choose a New Water Heater

Selecting a new water heater is not always an easy task when you don’t have the expertise to inform your decision. There are several factors to consider when doing research into a water heater replacement or a brand new water heater installation.

Dimensions of the Water Heater

If you are installing your new water heater in the space where your old one was previously, you’ll need to make sure it matches the dimensions of the old one. No matter where the new water heater is installed, it is important to make sure it fits properly and compliant with local codes, which may require a certain amount of space or clearance around the heater. The team at Nod’s Plumbing is well-versed in Reno’s local requirements and can help you navigate this process.

Water Heater Capacity

A water heater must be large enough to provide hot water on-demand. A water heater with a tank is limited by the size of that tank. If you have a family of three to four people, a 50-gallon water heater should suffice. But larger families may need higher capacity water heaters, and commercial properties will obviously have different requirements as well.

Type of Water Heater

There are several different types of water heaters available for both residential and commercial use. One of the most popular types is a traditional tank water heater. This type of water heater has a tank filled with water up to a certain capacity, and the heater keeps that water warm at all times. It then delivers that water to the faucet when it is turned on. These are also sometimes called storage water heaters because they store the heated water rather than heating it on demand.

Tankless water heaters, on the other hand, heat water on demand. While tankless water heaters have become more popular over time because they are smaller, they are usually more expensive than traditional water heaters and are primarily suitable for small homes. Nod’s Plumbing does not currently install electric tankless water heaters, although there are other types of tankless heaters on the market, including gas-powered tankless water heaters.

Energy and Installation Costs

You will also need to factor in short-term and long-term costs when choosing a water heater replacement in Reno. The initial investment of a more expensive water heater may be worth it if it will save you on future energy bills with increased efficiency. It’s important to consider the energy source of your water heater before installation in addition to the type and size. Some power sources may cost more than others, depending on whether your water heater is hooked up to natural gas, electricity, or is solar powered.

How to Tell When Your Water Heater Needs Repairs

You may not initially recognize an issue with your water heater unless you educate yourself on the common signs that your heater is broken or failing. It may be time to replace or repair your water heater in Reno if you notice any of the following:

Water Heater Repair vs. Water Heater Replacement in Reno, NV

If you notice your water heater is on the fritz, Nod’s Plumbing will advise you on whether you need to repair or fully replace your water heater. Water heater repairs will patch some issues, but most water heaters with tanks need to be replaced about once every 10 to 15 years. Tankless water heaters might last longer, up to 20 years. Most water heaters will begin to degrade and become less effective as they reach the end of their lifespan.

If a water heater has a major leak that involves water escaping from the side of the tank, it will need to be replaced. Rust and corrosion are also impossible to repair and will require full water heater replacement in Reno.
