Should I Repair or Replace My Water Heater?

When there’s a problem with your hot water heater, it’s important to think long-term and consider the following:

  • How old is your system?
  • Is it running efficiently?
  • Is it costing you extra in utility bills?

These are just some of the questions to ask before you decide to repair or replace your system. Fortunately, you don’t need to make this decision alone. In fact, you shouldn’t!

At American Vintage Home, we’ve spent decades working with hot water heaters. We know what to look for in your system and how to gauge its overall efficiency. We can tell you whether you’ll save more in the long run by repairing your system or replacing it. If your water heater is relatively new, it usually makes more sense to repair it. But if your system is more than 10 years old, replacement is likely the smarter decision. Modern-day water heaters operate much more efficiently than those made just 10 years ago.
