Water Heater Replacement: Upgrade Your Home’s Hot Water System
Is your water heater showing signs of age? It might be time for a water heater replacement.
At KP Plumbing, we understand the importance of having a reliable hot water supply. That’s why we offer top-notch water heater replacement services.
Why Replace Your Water Heater?
Firstly, old water heaters often become less efficient over time. This means higher energy bills and less hot water.
Additionally, a worn-out water heater can develop leaks. These leaks can lead to water damage and costly repairs if not addressed promptly.
Signs It’s Time for Water Heater Replacement
- Inconsistent Water Temperature: If your shower suddenly turns icy or scalding, your water heater may be struggling.
- Strange Noises: Popping, banging, or rumbling sounds coming from your heater are not normal. They can signal a buildup of sediment, which reduces efficiency.
- Rusty Water: If you notice rust in your hot water, it could mean your tank is corroding on the inside.
- Age: Water heaters typically last 10-15 years. If yours is nearing this age, it’s wise to consider a replacement.

Types of Water Heaters:
Various water heater options exist, ranging from traditional models to tankless and solar water heaters. Our expert, Keven Hoffert will give you an expert recommendation about what is most suitable choice for your specific needs.
The primary fuel sources for water heaters are gas and electricity. Selecting the right fuel type aligns with your current requirements, especially during the water heater installation process. Opting for a gas water heater can result in energy cost savings, while an electric water heater may offer longer-lasting power, depending on your preferences.
Hot Water Demands:
Considering your personal preferences, water usage, and size of your family will determine the hot water demands you are facing. In addition, if your home has numerous kitchen and bathroom fixtures, it’s essential to choose a water heater that can adequately meet your needs. Overly excessive capacity, on the other hand, isn’t an efficient choice.
Energy Efficiency Rating:
Energy bill savings should also be factored in when choosing a water heater. If your conventional water heater is driving up energy costs, switching to a tankless water heater with a 96% efficiency rate may be the solution. However, the installation and initial costs of a tankless heater need to be taken into consideration. Again, our pro, Kevin, will walk you through your options. Alternatively, a solar water heater is a viable option, as it consumes less fuel.
Overall Installation Cost:
In 2023, the average cost of installing a conventional water heater including the purchase of the new water heater is $1600was approximately $889. However, cost-effectiveness should not be the sole determining factor in your decision. Opting for the least expensive option may lead to poor water heating performance and reduced efficiency.
