Water Heater Replacement


S&B Plumbing is your water heater replacement solution, because we have extensive experience in providing the right solutions to our customers. It is known that a tank water heater lasts on average seven to 15 years. After as few as five to 10 years, a tank water heater can operate much less efficiently. Tankless, or on-demand water heaters last more than 20 years on average. Tank water heaters sustain wear and tear as sediments such as calcium build-up accumulates in the tank. Particles can harden as they are heated, cooled and reheated multiple time. Components and the walls of the tank can corrode and leak. Plus, calcium also coats the heating elements of a water heat, making the equipment less efficient at heating water. 

When you notice that your water heater is not warming up water like it used to or if you see signs that it is malfunctioning, call the professional plumbing company S&B Plumbing, Sugar Land, Texas, to inspect your water heater.

When Is It Time to Replace a Water Heater

It is important to check your water heater on a regular basis, because it is possible for it to form leaks and other issues that make it fail to operate sufficiently. There are a number of things that can tip you off to a problem with a water heater and a potential emergency repair. Flushing a water heater can lengthen its longevity, but many times it makes more economic sense to replace an old, poorly operating water heater with a modern, energy-efficient model.

Things to Check on Your Water Heater:

  • Power. If the water is cold, check to see if a circuit breaker has been tripped or a pilot light has gone out.
  • Leaks. Water leaking from a water heater is a sure sign that the unit is failing. Have the unit inspected right away to avoid a possible flooding problem in your home.
  • Sounds. If you hear loud popping, crackling and banging noises coming from the water heater, this happens because sediments are depositing and scale is building up in the unit.
  • Coloration. Rusty water flowing from a hot water faucet can mean an imminent breakdown of your water heater. Corrosion may be causing deterioration of metal components inside the water heater.
