Gas Water Heater Service

Every home needs a good, properly working hot water heater. They warm up the water used indoors, making it possible to take a hot shower, wash dishes, and perform other household tasks.

 However, many people only pay attention to their water heater once it stops working well or gives out altogether, leaving them with cold water.

The best thing you can do is to be proactive and replace the appliance before it stops working. When you’re ready, take the time to discover whether a gas water heater or an electric one is right for you.

How Long Does a Gas Water Heater Last?

Gas water heaters only perform at their best for about a decade, meaning if yours is near or past its 10th birthday, you ought to be contemplating a replacement.

 A water heater’s longevity may be affected by several different variables. Water quality and the amount of typical use also have a role in determining a water heater’s longevity, in addition to the heater’s age and whether or not it is regularly maintained. A water heater can go beyond its expected lifespan; however, the typical lifespan of a water heater varies depending on the model.

 The typical lifespan of a conventional tank water heater is between 8 and 12 years. To extend the useful life of a water heater, a rod called an anode is placed within the tank to prevent corrosion through electrolysis, drawing any corrosive substances it comes into contact with to itself. When the rod corrodes to the point that it can no longer filter water, the rust and other particles it releases sink to the bottom of the tank, where they may eat away at the liner over time. When corrosion develops within the tank, it’s game over for the water heater.

 Tankless water heaters last longer than conventional water heaters. They tend to last up to 20 years.

Lower Water Energy Bills

You only heat water as necessary instead of continually heating the water in your tank. This reduces energy waste and keeps your bills low.

Maintenance Icon

Reduced Maintance

Traditional water heaters have the potential for multiple issues, including getting clogged with sediment that reduces energy efficiency and increases the probability of leaks

Risk Icon

Fewer Risks

Water and heat are brought through the system only when they are ready to be used. This prevents water contamination and helps ensure the water is freeand clear

Gas Vs. Electric Water Heater

It is common for homeowners to choose between gas and electric water heaters based on what is already installed.

Most of the time, you’ll use whatever comes standard in your house. Nearly every home has access to some kind of modern power, and many have access to both gas and electricity. However, the decision is clear cut: an electric water heater is needed if electricity is your sole available resource.

People who live in the country may not be limited to using electric water heaters because of their lack of access to natural gas. They may choose a gas water heater and buy a Conversion Kit to convert it to propane if they already have it.

Input measures the quantity of gas or energy consumed per hour to heat the tank and is used to grade gas and electric water heaters. BTUs measure gas input, while watts measure electrical input.

Gas water heaters typically have input values between 30,000 and 180,000 BTUs. The higher the BTU rating, the more quickly water can be heated.

The same rule applies to the power input of electric water heaters, which may be anywhere from around 1,440 to 5,500 watts; the more significant the wattage, the more rapidly the water will heat.

Gas Water Heater Installation Cost

The purchase price of a gas water heater is often more than that of an electric water heater of similar capacity. Still, gas water heaters may have lower operating expenses over time.

 The size, efficiency, and quality of your water heater all play a role in the final price tag. More money spent usually means more outstanding performance. However, the initial investment for a gas water heater would be more than that of an electric water heater of the same size.

 The initial investment for a tankless device is more than that of a conventional water heater. It may be twice as expensive, depending on the unit and the extent of the necessary house modifications. Expertise is needed, and the installation might take up to 10 hours

Is Your Gas Water Heater Malfunctioning?

It may be necessary to replace your water heater if you notice any of these issues:

Troubling Noises

Sounds your water heater hasn't been making before might be a warning that it's about to break down. If you hear popping or cracking, it may be because the sediment at the bottom of your tank has solidified. If your water heater has to work harder to heat the same volume of water, you should expect a rise in your utility costs. Get a skilled plumber to empty your tank yearly to avoid sediment accumulation. If, however, the sediment has already solidified, a repair could be necessary to prevent further damage, such as fractures and leaks.

Obvious Damage

If there is corrosion or cracking on your water heater, it may be time to fix or replace it. Repair by a professional is possible, but if your water heater is more than a few years old, it's probably time to get a new one. A water heater that is 20 years old, for instance, is beyond its useful life and should be replaced even if repairs are feasible.

Discolored Water

Discolored water might be an indication of a faulty water heater. It might have bits of sand or rust, for instance. Once your water supply has been tainted, it will need to be replaced quickly.

Small Electric Icon


Your water heater has to be replaced if it is leaking. Leaks often occur due to an increase in pressure within the tank. If you have this symptom, the pressure or temperature may be too high, or there's something wrong with the relief valve. But if there are leaks, you know it's time to get a new one.

Water Temperature Shift

The water temperature may fluctuate as another sign of a faulty water heater. Problems with the gas burner, the electric coil, or sediment accumulation in the tank might render your water heater ineffective. It may be time to replace your unit if you are having trouble getting the water to the desired temperature or if it fluctuates randomly.
