It is not uncommon to stand in a very cold shower and worry that your water heater needs to be replaced. The reality is that quite often water heater replacement is not necessary. There are many issues that can be resolved with a cost-effective water heater repair visit. In fact, as long as your water heater isn’t on borrowed time and the tank itself isn’t leaking all over the place, it probably only needs one or more replacement parts.
The tank itself is not repairable, but nearly every other component is. As long as the tank is still holding out, the only reason why you might not want to proceed with water heater repair is if it is an older, inefficient water heater and you’d like to upgrade anyway. It can make sense to put the funds to a new one if you want peace of mind that you won’t face water damage from a leaking water heater anytime soon.
Another reason to forego water heater repair in favor of replacement is if you would like a different size or style of water heater. Perhaps you want to downsize after your children leave the home or you want a larger one to accommodate the huge soaking tub you plan to have installed.
