Repairing vs Replacing a Water Heater
It’s never easy to determine when to replace an expensive appliance. If the cost of your water heater repair is 50% or more of the value of a replacement heater tank, then you should replace it, rather than repair it.
Some more reasons to consider water heater replacement instead of repair are below:
- The water heater model is out of service
- Parts are unavailable
- Cost and frequency of repair
- Efficiency breakdown
How much does it cost to repair a water heater?
Some water heater repairs are quick, easy, and inexpensive. If you have an older plumbing network and an aged H2O tank, event the smaller issues can cause a chain reaction and increase the amount of labor and parts needed to resolve the issue. Some repairs may cost less than $100, while others could be as high as $1,000 or more. The type of repair, location, and time needed to perform the repair is the biggest cost drivers. We offer a free home inspection to determine if your hot water heater is worth repairing or replacing.
