Las Vegas Water Heater Repair, Replace & Maintenance
If your water heater has a 12-year warranty and it’s been in service for 15 years, it might be time to get a new one. In homes with hard water, which can be tougher on water heaters because of its corrosive effect on the sacrificial anode, a water heater may fail within the warranty period.
If you haven't replaced your water heater in a few years, you'll find more choices—and more energy-efficient regulations—so do your homework. You may have to spend more up front for a model that will save you money over time.
Water heating amounts to nearly 20 percent of a home's energy costs. As the result of new efficiency standards, water heaters under 55 gallons will see about a 4 percent boost in efficiency, while water heaters 55 gallons or more may cut your utility bills by 25 to 50 percent depending on the technology used.
