Water Heater Replacement Options for Residents of Kansas City, KS, and Kansas City, MO
Water heater replacement is usually warranted every eight to 12 years. Of course, this will vary based on factors like the brand, design, installation, upkeep, and local weather conditions. In most homes, the water heater gets quite a workout, and because these appliances tend to be so reliable, they’re easy to forget about until you turn the tap … and the water is cold. As a general rule of thumb, if your water heater is more than 10 years old, leaking around the base, or not performing as well as it once did, it might be time to start looking for a new one. For help, you can confidently turn to American Home Services LLC, a premier home services company based in the Kansas City, KS, and Kansas City, MO, region.
Before you arrange for water heater replacement or repair, we suggest that you look for a nameplate and/or sticker on the side of your current unit. Most water heaters are labeled with a variety of helpful information, such as the:
- Tank capacity
- Insulation R-value
- Working pressure
- Wattage capacity and voltage of heating element (for electric units)
- Energy efficiency rating (and estimated annual cost of operation)
- Installation guidelines
This information will provide a good starting point in your quest for parts or options for complete water heater replacement. If you are replacing your unit, you can choose the same type you have. Alternatively, you might want to upgrade to a more energy efficient model or one with a different capacity if the size of your household has changed.
