Your water heater is one of the most integral parts of your day to day life. We use hot water for bathing, for cleaning, for cooking, and even doing chores like laundry or washing dishes. All of this means that you need a dependable source of clean, hot water, and that’s what your water heater provides you with. However, water heaters will eventually wear out and need to be replaced, and the team from Belknap Plumbing Systems is here to help you when that time comes for you.

Let Belknap Plumbing handle your water heater replacement! Call our Cypress plumbers at (832) 990-9700 or reach out online today.

Let Us Replace Your Old Tank!

Water heaters have a difficult job: they must contain a large quantity of water and then keep it at a warm temperature until you need it. Even the most durable and well-sealed container will eventually corrode, and that means leaks can form which could seriously damage your home. When your water heater starts to leak or experiences another serious problem that cannot be effectively repaired, then you should consider replacing it as soon as possible.

You May Need A New Water Heater If:

  • Your water heater is more than 8 years old
  • Your water heater is leaking
  • Your water heater is going to cost a lot to repair
  • Your water heater consumes far more energy than it should
  • Your water heater is having problems with pressure buildup

Common Causes of Water Heater Failure

It's easy to take your water heater for granted when it's working properly and providing you with the hot water you need to carry out daily tasks. However, when it starts to provide you with rusty water, or, worse, no hot water at all, you may wonder what's causing your water heater to break down completely.

Some of the common causes of water heater failure include:

  • It's reached the end of its lifespan: Like any other appliance, your water heater will not last forever. Standard tank water heaters last anywhere from 8 to 12 years, while tankless water heaters can last around 20 years. However, as your unit approaches the end of its lifespan, it is more prone to corrosion, bad heating elements, or faulty pilot lights.
  • Corrosion: If you have a standard tank water heater, it has anode rods meant to draw corrosion away from the tank itself. However, these rods must be replaced every five years. If you've failed to replace your anode rods, it could lead to leaks and internal corrosion of the tank, which is what causes the rusty water.
  • Sediment buildup: When you heat up water, the mineral deposits separate and settle on the bottom of your tank. Over the years, the sediment begins to build up which will negatively effect the efficiency of your unit. You can help prevent this by getting your tank flushed at least once per year.
  • Improperly sized unit: It's vitally important that you get a properly sized water heater for your home's size and usage needs. A water heater that is too small will have to work overtime to provide you with enough hot water. As it works harder, it will become more prone to breakdowns.
  • High water pressure: It's recommended that your water pressure is not higher than 80 psi. Excessive water pressure can cause leaks in your tank's overflow pipe as well as damage to your unit's pressure and temperature relief valves.
  • Poorly installed unit: Water heater installation is not a DIY project. Units that aren't installed correctly can lead to frequent breakdowns and the need for premature replacement. This is why it's best to leave installation to the professionals, like ours at Belknap Plumbing Systems Inc.

Tankless Water Heater Installation

Need to replace your water heater? A tankless water heater may be the perfect upgrade solution to your home. These systems heat water as you need it rather than storing hot water in a tank, making them far safer and more energy-efficient than their tank-style counterparts. In fact, these systems are so much more reliable and longer-lasting than tank-style water heaters that when well-cared-for they could be the last water heater you ever have to buy for your home! We encourage you to speak to a member of our tankless water heater installation team and find out more about these systems to learn if they’re right for you.
