Three Types of Water Heaters
- Tankless: Provides on-demand hot water only when you need it. You can shower, do laundry, and wash dishes without worrying about running out of hot water.
- Conventional: Keeps a set amount of water in the tank hot every minute of every day. It’s continually heating water to about 120 degrees.
- Hybrid: Replenishes its hot water supply much more quickly than a traditional tank water heater.

What’s Wrong with My Water Heater?
Did you know that water heaters have a typical life span of six to 12 years? Here are some common water heater problems our customers have experienced and what may be causing them:
My water heater is leaking: Leaks can come from different parts of your water heater. If the leak is coming from the water lines or temperature and pressure relief valves at the top of your unit, it may not be a serious repair. If the water is leaking from the bottom of your unit, it’s likely a sign that the interior tank has deteriorated from age and needs to be replaced.
Rusty water comes out of my faucet: If rust is coming from the hot side piping only, the inside of your water heater may be rusting out and causing a leak. There’s no way to repair the interior tank, so you’ll likely need to replace it.
My water heater is rumbling: Over time, sediment builds up on the bottom of the tank and hardens from being heated each day, which causes rumbling noises. The sediment causes your water heater to be less efficient because it has to use more gas or electricity. Eventually, the metal tank will become brittle from wear and tear and form tiny holes and cracks, at which point you’ll need to replace the unit.
- The water in my house isn’t getting hot: This typically signals a serious problem. You can check your pilot light, but if that’s not the issue, let one of our plumbers take a look for you.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why do I keep running out of hot water?
Blockages within the heater, mineral deposits, malfunctioning heating elements, and other issues can contribute to a lack of hot water. You’ll need a professional plumber to diagnose and repair the issue.
Should I replace my water heater?
If your water heater is over 10 years old or frequently needs repairs, it may be more cost-effective to replace your water heater.
Are tankless water heaters worth it?
While tankless water heaters are costlier to purchase and install, they’re more cost-effective in the long run due to their energy efficiency. Plus, you’ll have hot water on demand instead of waiting minutes for your water to heat up.
