Water Heater Replacement
A typical home uses more than 60 gallons of hot water each day. And, most water heaters only last 8 to 10 years. How do you know if your water is getting ready to breakdown? If you notice one or more of the following signs, your water heater may be headed for serious trouble:
- Dripping from the pressure relief valve (on the side of the tank)
- Brown or discolored water appearing in the sinks or bath
- Running out of hot water more quickly than usual
- Rust on the outside of the tank
- Dampness on the ground under the tank itself
When you have a leak from your water heater, it’s usually time to replace it. Leaks usually indicate rust-through at the bottom of the storage tank. This can’t be fixed. The good news is, by the time this happens, the water heater is usually so old you’d benefit by replacing it with a more energy-efficient model.

We even offer tankless water heater options so that you never run out of hot water! These are also great for cabins or as an auxiliary water heating system in small structures away from a main house.

Water Heater Accessories
To make your life more comfortable we offer a range of water heater accessories.
Water alarms go off when you water heater leaks, allowing you to take corrective action before the problem and mess grows worse.
Press regulators will keep water pressure from exceeding a pre-set limit, which protects the unit and connection pipes from leaking or bursting.
Timers allow your water heater to use power only when you need hot water. This will save you money, reduce energy consumption and prolong the life of your water heater.
Thermal expansion occurs as domestic water is heated. Left unchecked, the resulting pressure can cause a relief valve to discharge and other potentially unsafe conditions. Expansion tanks absorb this expanded water, keeping the water pressure at a safe level.
