Humble Water Heater Replacement

Water heater replacement is one of those inevitable, unglamorous home maintenance steps that must inevitably be taken at the most inconvenient time. Maybe just when you’ve stretched your budget to buy your next house? Maybe just as another one of your children begins college? Water heaters have a tough job to do, so here, we unwrap the ins and outs of the water heater lifecycle and search the question — is it best to replace or repair?  

How Long Will It Last? – On average, you can assume your new gas water heater to last anywhere from 8 to 12 years, while the electric model can usually last a little longer—10 to 15 years. You may have moved to a brand-new location, and you do not know how old the water heater is, but do not worry — there is usually a way to tell. On older models, you can learn the age of your unit by decoding the serial number of the water heater. 

Should I Replace It? – Say you have determined how old your water heater is, and it looks like there is plenty of life left by age. Are there still signs that you might be looking to replace or at least repair the imminent water heater? Check your energy bill first. If it appears higher than normal, that may be a sign of a water heater problem. Improperly working water heaters use more power as they struggle to cope. You may also notice that you get less hot water, too. This is usually caused by a buildup of sediments and usually leads to failure of water heaters.

The other simple maintenance check to run on water heaters is to give your unit a visual once-over. Is it rusty underneath? Is it flippant? Are the connections seeming in any way corroded or worn? If so, that is a clear indication you should start planning for a possible replacement of the water heater.


The Good News – it is not always necessary to replace the entire water heater. There are common problems with water heaters, which are quick, cheap fixes. These include heating elements that have been burned out, and leaky drains or pressure relief valves. In these instances, diagnosis and repair will save you the cost of buying and to set up a new water heater.

And when’s the time to bite the bullet and commit to removing the water heaters? Our experts at A1 Humble Plumber can tell you almost immediately if the repair of your water heater is going to be so severe that the most cost-effective alternative is to replace it. They can even easily mount your new water heater, and you’ll enjoy a nice hot shower before you know it.

Water Heater Replacement Humble TX

We’d be lost without water heaters — is there anything less appealing than a freezing cold shower? — So spare a thought for the well-being of your unit. If you are in doubt about the efficiency or lifespan of your water heater, the best advice would be to have A1 Humble Plumber visit to diagnose your unit, potentially catch any repairable problems before they develop into full-blown water heater replacement scenarios.

When the hot water goes out, it is never a good sign. Overall, a water heater type tank will last between eight and 10 years, but it’s a good idea to perform routine maintenance and make sure you check for signs that it doesn’t work properly – you can nip a hot water emergency in your bud. 

Whatever the diagnosis is, it is important that you leave the professionals to replace your water heater. Water heaters are bulky, and there is a protocol for disposal of these fixtures. A certified plumbing expert like the ones at A1 Humble Plumber can help you make sure you are following all the proper guidelines for disposing of your unit and provides handy assistance for carrying it out of your home. In addition, plumbers have access to all the tools you will need for the extraction of the old unit and installation of the new.
