Types of Water Heaters
- Tankless Water Heater: With these types of heaters, electric elements heat the water to your desired temperature on-demand. Because of this, they only use energy when needed and shut off the rest of the time. This further eliminates the risk of losing your cherished hot water. They are also much smaller in size than other types of water heaters and are easily mountable, making them ideal for saving space.
- Storage Water Heater: Storage water heaters are a standard option, but they boast their own set of benefits and are typically the most popular choice. They are available in natural gas and liquid propane and are able to store gallons of hot water at once. They are also relatively maintenance-free as there are no filters to clean or replace.
- Hybrid Water Heater: These water heaters can significantly cut energy costs; they merge the performance and efficiency of traditional storage water heater pumps and the instantaneous production of the electrical heating elements found in tankless water heaters. Less energy production leads to lower monthly bills, and these units are also another low-maintenance option.

Signs You Need a New Water Heater
Although water heaters are among the longest-lasting home appliances, their life span will still inevitably come to an end. Be on the lookout for any of the following signs it may be time to replace your water heater:
- Lack of hot water: An obvious sign of your water heater failing is if it isn’t producing hot water or your hot water supply runs out quicker than usual.
- Old age: Just like any type of machinery, the life span of your water heater will ultimately cease. You should eventually look into replacing your unit with a new one when it hits roughly a decade of service.
- Your water has a weird look: Another telltale sign of your system not working up to par is the quality of the water. If you notice your water is the color of rust, it’s likely your unit is facing corrosion and is in need of a replacement.
- Loud, abnormal noises: The presence of rumbling or other unusual noises could be due to a leak or potentially a buildup of sediment at the bottom of your machine. Should this be the case, you should consider looking into a water heater replacement.
- A rise in monthly bills: As discussed, many factors can lead to the need for a replacement. Another way to tell is an increase in your water heater bill—this lets you know that your unit is using more energy and that there is likely an issue with the way it is performing.
