Installing Reliable Water Heaters in Berks County & Lehigh County

Most homeowners probably can’t imagine day-to-day life without a water heater. In fact, if your water heater has recently been malfunctioning, you’re probably more aware than ever how much you rely on it. Because your water heater is such an important component of your home, it’s important to make the right selection when choosing a new one. Essig Plumbing & Heating is here to help you with that decision and ensure your replacement water heater is installed correctly for optimal performance.

When to Replace Your Water Heater

Water heaters typically last 8 to 10 years. Trying to force a system to work longer than this typically results in higher energy bills and frequent repairs. If your water heater is past its normal lifespan or if it has a major leak or extensive rust, it might be time to consider replacement. Of course, you can always call our plumbers for a professional inspection. We’ll advise you on whether your system can be repaired or if replacement would be a more cost-effective option.

Additional signs that it may be time to replace your water heater include:

  • Loss of hot water volume
  • Rising energy bills
  • Frequent repairs
  • Corrosion on your water heater
  • Rust-colored hot water

It’s important to know that none of these signs is an absolute indicator that it’s time to replace your water heater. Many water heater issues can be repaired. Always consult with our knowledgeable plumbers to determine if it’s more cost-effective to repair or replace your system.

Choosing the Right Water Heater for Your Home

Selecting the water heater that’s best for your home involves more than just choosing one that is produced by the best manufacturer. For example, you’ll want a water heater that is properly sized for your needs. If the unit is either too small or too large, you could experience excessive wear and tear and reduced efficiency levels. You will also need to choose whether your water heater will be powered by gas or electricity and if you would like a traditional or tankless model.

At Essig Plumbing & Heating, we are capable of installing all types of water heaters, including:

  • Traditional tank water heaters
  • Gas water heaters
  • Hybrid heat pump water heaters
  • Electric water heaters
  • Tankless water heaters
