As a homeowner in Carbon County, one of the last things you want to deal with is finding out your water heater needs to be replaced and not knowing where to turn for help.
The team at Andreas Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning has spent decades servicing homes in eastern Pennsylvania, and we’re happy to provide a variety of water heater replacement services based on your and your family’s needs.
To determine what water heater is best for your Carbon County home, it’s helpful to know there are two options: standard tank water heaters and tankless water heaters.
Standard tank water heaters have a significantly lower installation cost than tankless water heaters. They’re also less mechanically complex, making them easier to maintain, and when they need repairs, they tend to be cheaper to repair than tankless water heaters.
However, there are drawbacks to using a standard tank water heater. Because they continually need to reheat the water to keep it warm, your energy bills will be higher than if you had a tankless water heater. They also take up more space and need to be replaced more often than tankless water heaters.
One of the most immediately noticeable benefits of using a tankless water heater is that it will save you a decent amount of money on your monthly energy bills. Tankless water heaters can also last for 20 to 30 years, which is twice as long as a standard tank water heater.
It’s important to note that tankless water heaters are more expensive to install and maintain. While they can produce hot water for hours on end, their capacity at any given moment is limited, so they can have trouble keeping up with the demand for hot water if too many people are using it at the same time.
While the best way to tell whether a water heater needs to be replaced is by having one of the experts from Team Andreas take a look, there are a few signs you can keep an eye out for, including:

Common questions we receive about water heaters include:
The choice between a gas or electric water heater depends on your specific needs and the availability of fuel sources. Gas water heaters are known for faster recovery rates and lower operating costs, while electric water heaters are generally easier to install and have a longer life span.
It’s best to consider factors like energy prices, local codes, and your home’s infrastructure before deciding.
The ideal size water heater for your home depends on your household size and hot water demands. It’s always best to consult a plumbing professional that can help determine the best size tank to match your needs.
