Water heater being installed

If you need a new water heater, simply looking up the cost won’t do anything to tell you what you need. By calling Heritage and scheduling an appointment, our trained team can come to your home, examine how often you’re using your water heater, and make recommendations based on the most efficient unit for your home. In addition, we offer transparent pricing and financing options, so you get the water heater you actually need instead of settling for one that’ll only get the job half-done.

When is it Time for Water Heater Replacement?

When your water heater just stops working, it’s pretty clear that you need a new one so you can do things like wash your clothes, wash your dishes, and take those long, hot showers you love. However, there are some other situations where our water heater replacement service might be the best choice for you. Here’s what we look at when we decide whether we should recommend water heater replacement.

  • Is your water heater old? Most water heaters last about 10 years, though some end up lasting a lot longer than that. We’ll look at the make and model of your water heater, and then let you know how long it should last. If it’s at the end of it’s life, it may not be worth it to repair it. In these cases, we recommend replacement instead.
  • How much are repairs? If your current water heater requires repairs, we’ll look at what it will cost to do those versus what it would cost to replace it. If the costs are similar or replacement is cheaper, we’ll let you know and help you find a new water heater that will meet your needs.
  • How often does it need work? When you are calling someone to fix your water heater every couple of months, chances are good that it’s time to get a new one. After all, you don’t have the time and energy to call us that often and the cost of repairs can add up fast. If we think we’re seeing you too often about your water heater, we’ll talk to you about all of your options.
  • Is it the right type for you? Maybe you’ve heard about tankless water heaters and you’re interested in installing one of these instead of the traditional kind with tanks. We can help you find the perfect tankless heater for your home and get your system set up to work with it. We’ll install the heater, too, so you don’t have to worry about anything.

What You Need to Know About Water Heaters

Difference Between a Traditional Water Heater Tank and Tankless?

Traditional tank water heaters store water for your home in a tank, making hot water immediately available unless you use up the entire supply in the tank. A tankless water heater heats water on-demand, which means you might have to wait a few minutes to get enough water to complete the task at hand.

Should You Use a Gas or Electric Water Heater?

Choosing the best fuel source will depend on where you live in Massachusetts and your access to natural gas. Heritage’s team will be able to help you decide which is best for your area by going over the pros and cons of both, evaluating your actual hot water needs, and offering over 35 years of experience finding the best overall water heater for our customers. We’ll provide you with all the options for your home so you can make an informed decision.

What Size Water Heater Does My Home Need?

A traditional tank water heater usually offers storage for between 20 to 80 gallons of water at one time. Most homes use a 40-gallon tank, but you should decide if that will be enough for your family. Larger tanks will cost more to install and have an increased cost to heat your water supply but will also provide less risk of running out of hot water during high demand.
