Common Reason Calling for a New Water Heater
Many Lutz Plumbing customers begin talking to us seeking our advice on what we can do to repair their current water heater. There are a few things we can replace on it to reclaim its usefulness after a problem but everything should be weighed against the age and type of unit it is.
If you have a leak somewhere in your water heater, we can make a successful repair depending on where the leak is. If it is on one of the valves or connections we can usually replace it and there should be no problem squeezing more years from your current unit. However, if the leak is in the tank itself or on one of the seams caused by rust, a complete replacement would be the wisest thing to do.
Units are designed to last 10 to 15 years so consider the age of your water heater when making a decision. Purchasing a new unit will probably even save money and energy in the long run considering the efficiency of units currently on the market.
