Water Heater Installation & Replacement

While a DIY water heater installation might seem like an easy way to save money, it’s ultimately more trouble than it’s worth, given how complicated the process can be. That’s why if you ever need to replace a dilapidated water heater, it’s best to place the task in the hands of professionals who know what they’re doing.

The caring and attentive professionals at Blanton & Sons have all the necessary tools and training to install any water heater model— from propane to natural gas — meaning that you can have confidence that the future of your hot water supply will be in good hands!

How to Tell It's Time for a New Water Heater

Water heaters usually last between 8 and 12 years on average, depending on the type and maintenance. Regular maintenance, such as flushing the tank, checking the heating element, and addressing sediment buildup, can extend the life of a water heater. However, factors like water quality, the type of heating element used — common in electric water heaters — and the frequency of use can all impact its lifespan.

Upgrading to newer, more energy-efficient water heaters can also be a wise choice to enhance longevity and performance. To ensure your new system operates at its very best, it’s a good idea to consult our professionals. We closely adhere to local building codes during every water heater installation we undertake to make sure that it’s done properly and without complication!

When your hot water heater produces rusty and metallic water, it’s a clear sign of a deteriorating tank. The presence of rust indicates corrosion within the water heater tank or its components, such as the heating element in electric water heaters or the gas burner in gas water heaters. It’s worth noting that this issue can affect water quality and signify potential leaks.

Rust and metallic water are strong indicators that your water heater is failing and requires immediate attention. Ignoring this problem can lead to more significant issues, making water heater replacement a prudent decision. Upgrading to a newer and more efficient model, like tankless water heaters, can not only eliminate rusty water concerns but also provide a more reliable and energy-efficient hot water supply.

Insufficient or nonexistent hot water is always frustrating and can stem from a failing water heater. This issue can be caused by a malfunctioning heating element in electric water heaters or a faulty gas burner in gas water heaters. If you’re experiencing a decline in hot water production, it’s important to address the problem as soon as you can.

In some cases, replacing the water heater becomes necessary — especially if the issue persists after a water heater repair. Upgrading to a newer model, such as tankless water heaters, can not only resolve the hot water shortage but also provide the added benefits of enhanced energy efficiency and prolonged reliability.

Spotting leaks and puddles around your water heater is a clear sign that something is wrong. Leaks can originate from various points, including the drain valve, vent pipe, or even the water heater tank itself. Ignoring these leaks can lead to water damage, mold growth, and further deterioration of the water heater, so it’s best to schedule a replacement sooner rather than later.

In the case of propane and gas water heaters, leaks can pose additional risks and potentially give rise to hazardous situations. To prevent extensive damage and ensure safety, it’s essential to replace a failing water heater before a leak spirals out of control.

Upgrading to a new water heater offers numerous benefits beyond replacing your old and outdated system. Newer models provide improved energy efficiency, resulting in reduced utility bills.

Additionally, advancements in technology and design mean that newer models are more durable than older ones. Investing in a new water heater not only ensures consistent and ample hot water but also offers peace of mind, knowing that the system complies with current installation costs and local building codes. Whether it’s an electric, propane, or gas water heater, your household will be able to take advantage of improved performance, energy savings, and long-term convenience.
