Which Size Water Heater Do I Need?

Choosing the right size water heater for your home is an important step to maximize efficiency, meet your household’s unique needs, and avoid energy waste. At Anderson’s Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing, our licensed experts have plenty of knowledge and know-how to inspect your unique space and help you find the best type and size for your preferences and budget. 

To determine the ideal size for your residential property, you should consider various factors, like how many people are living in your home and the time of day when your demand is typically highest. For an average family of four, a water heater that can provide 50 to 60 gallons during peak usage times is usually sufficient. However, if your home has luxurious fixtures, like soaker tubs or body sprays, you may need a water heater with a larger capacity. 

For commercial properties, choosing the right water heater size depends on the type of business, customer volume, and hot water usage. Regardless of your situation, consulting with a licensed professional is the best way to accurately assess your requirements and determine which size water heater will be most efficient for your needs. Our friendly team is here to help with high-end service and lasting solutions! 

Signs Your Water Heater Needs Professional Service

How can you tell if your water heater needs to be serviced? Keeping an eye out for common signs of water heater issues can be a helpful way to ensure the longevity and efficiency of your HVAC system. Our certified experts offer thorough inspections to diagnose the problem and recommend the most economical solution for your water heater, from professional repair to replacement to regular maintenance. 

Here are some telltale signs that it’s time to call our trusted technicians: 

  • Strange noises: Rumbling, popping, or whining noises from your water heater can indicate sediment buildup affecting the heater's efficiency, which can lead to extensive damage.
  • Water leaks: Any signs of water pooling around the base of your water heater can indicate a leak, an issue that requires immediate attention to prevent water damage and mold.
  • Inconsistent water temperature: If your water temperature is too hot or too cold, regardless of how you adjust the thermostat, it might be a sign of thermostat issues or sediment accumulation.
  • Discolored water: Rust-colored or murky water coming from your hot taps can be a sign of corrosion inside your water heater, indicating it may be time for a replacement.
  • Decreased hot water supply: If you're running out of hot water faster than usual, this could be a sign that your water heater may not be operating as efficiently as it should or is nearing the end of its lifespan, signaling the need for professional repair or replacement.
  • Rising energy bills: Unexplained surges in your gas or electric bills can be a sign of an inefficient water heater, such as due to sediment buildup or aging. We can inspect the quality and efficiency of your water heater to determine the need for potential repairs or replacement.

How Long Do Water Heaters Last?

The lifespan of a water heater can vary depending on its type, how frequently it's used, and how well it's maintained. On average, traditional tank water heaters last between 8 to 12 years, while tankless water heaters can last up to 20 years or more with proper maintenance. It's essential to follow the manufacturer’s maintenance guidelines and invest in regular inspections by a professional to keep your water heater working efficiently and reliably throughout its full lifetime. 

Remember, timely maintenance and addressing small issues early on can prevent costly repairs down the line and extend the life of your water heater. Our team offers comprehensive maintenance services to help you keep your water heater in tip-top shape and make the most of your investment.
