Most water heaters lifespan is about 8-12 years, and that varies with the location and design of the unit, quality of installation, maintenance schedule and water quality. If your water heater is older than 8-12 years, one of the worst water heater problems is a leaking tank, and/or works unstable, or not at all. Unfortunately, once that happens, that tank is done and you will need to replace it. There are no fixes for a leaking water heater.
The most common problems with a water heater are:
- The water isn’t as hot as you want it to be. This is usually caused by a faulty thermostat or a defective heating element.
- Strange Noise. Noises coming from inside the tank could be the sounds of sediments being burned by the heating element, or the heating element itself could be slowly burning out and becoming noisy in its deterioration.
- Leaking pressure-relief valve. It can be an indication of high water pressure or a high temperature inside the tank.
- Leaking water supply pipes. It usually happens when the fittings become loose. Tighten the fittings, if that doesn’t work, shut off the water and replace the fittings.
In case you’re replacing your water heater, you can replace it with the same kind of unit. However, you may need to choose for a different size unit to meet the needs of having a larger family or maybe a more energy-efficient model. When looking for a new water heater, consider these features:
- Gallon capacity. 40-gallon and 50-gallon heaters are the most common.
- Recovery rate. The number of gallons the heater will heat in an hour.
- The width and height should be considered. Physical space may limit your ability to upgrade your unit’s capacity.
- Energy efficiency ratings. A sticker on the side should list the estimated annual cost of operation for the unit.
Pembroke water heater professionals will help you to figure out which one is ideal for your home and budget, thinking about your family’s water heating needs and energy use desires.

Tankless Water Heaters
Tankless or on-demand water heater. The units only heat water when you need it and don’t store heated water. It consumes less space in your home since it is small that can be hung in the wall. As water moves through the unit’s heat exchanger, it’s quickly heated to the desired temperature.
Tankless units are more costly to purchase but tankless water heaters will typically last longer and have lower operating and energy costs, which could offset its higher purchase price. Most tankless water heaters have a life expectancy of more than 20 years. They also have easily replaceable parts that extend their life by many more years.
How did it work? When a hot water tap is turned on, cold water travels through a pipe through the water heater unit and is rapidly heated to the desired temperature. When the tap is turned off, the system shuts down and uses no energy.
The advantages of tankless water heaters are instant hot water where you can turn any water source into hot water on demand, lower energy bills which can save up to 40% energy, longevity since it typically last up to 20 years, space saving because these tankless water heaters are about the size of a carry-on suitcase and can be installed on virtually any wall inside or outside of your home.
There are also disadvantages that you should consider before making this type of investment which is the output limitations, initial expense, and electricity cost when considering your water heater to run off electricity.
Hybrid Water Heaters
Hybrid water heater sometimes called heat pump water heater. A hybrid water heater combines conventional tank storage with a heat pump that extracts heat from the air and uses it to help heat the water. A hybrid water heater uses existing water and electrical connections and can reduce water heating costs by almost 60 percent.
How does a hybrid water heater work? A hybrid water heater moves hot air to the water tank when required instead of heating the water on request. At the point when the interest for water is high, a hybrid water heater changes to standard electric heating. These water heaters frequently accompany extra settings which can enable you to keep the cost of your water bill down or help you get ready for utilizing a lot of water.
The advantages of hybrid water heater are energy savings, environmentally beneficial since hybrid water heaters release fewer greenhouse gases than natural gas-powered water heaters, and safer as these types of water heater only use electrical power to prevent potential health hazards from combustion and toxic exhaust from natural gas.
Hybrid or heat pump water heater disadvantages are high upfront cost, fairly difficult to install, questionable sustainability, it requires significant work and disruption to your house and garden, cold weather can damage the system, and carbon neutral.
Electric Water Heaters
Water is heated by element immerse in a self-contained, little, wall mounted tank. Electric water heaters take a shot at an alternate guideline as there is no burner, and no warmth exchanger, no pipe framework is required. Electric water heaters regularly utilize two immersion elements. One is close to the highest point of the tank and the other is close to the base.
How do electric water heaters work? Cool water is presented close to the base of the tank and heated water is drawn off close to the top. This cool water close to the base of the tank will activate the thermostat for the lower element. The lower element will go ahead and heat the approaching cool water. The upper component will still be surrounded with hot water and will be fulfilled.
The advantages of using electric water heaters are electricity is more available than gas, no products of combustion so no chance of any leakage of harmful gases, and is available as storage and continuous flow.
While the disadvantages are the recovery rates for storage are poor, flow rates are not as good as gas counterparts, if there is a breakdown in insulation it could be fatal, and hot water delivery temperature will not be accurate.
Solar Powered Water Heaters
A solar-powered water heater is a device that can be used to capture sunlight in order to heat the water in your pipes to be used for baths, showers, etc. It consists mainly of a thermal panel (solar collector) installed on the roof, a tank to store hot water, and accessories such as a circulating pump to carry the solar energy from the collector to the tank, and a thermal regulator. However, a backup heating system is required for times when there is insufficient luminosity.
How does a solar water heater work? The solar water heater absorbs light by a collector placed on the roof and converts it into heat. It passes this heat to a water tank by means of a circulating pump. This exchange is triggered by the thermal regulator, but only when the collector is hotter than the water in the tank.
The advantage of this type of water heater is solar heaters help to utilize free natural resource such as sunlight and thus helps in saving electricity costs, it requires basic fittings and a one-time investment and after that its free for up to 20 years, and it is a renewable and clean energy source.
It also has disadvantages like working of solar heaters depends upon abundance and availability of direct sunlight, additional rooftop space is required to install the solar heater, it heats only in daytime however if the storage tank is well insulated, heated water can be stored and used even at night and it will not be very helpful in rainy season.
