Modern homes in San Antonio have the luxury of hot water whenever we want it, and a lot of it. The most common water heater capacities are 40 and 60 gallons, but go up to 100 gallons. Many US houses have more than one hot water heater. That is a lot of luxury and a lot of potential water damage.
Most water heater failures occur when the water heater has reached its life expectancy and the tank begins to rust and corrode. The majority of water heater failures involve leaking many of those gallons down your walls, onto your floors, and under your carpet. Proper maintenance, including inspecting the water heater’s anode rod and flushing sediment from the tank, can delay the need to replace a water heater. Complete Flood Restoration can help if it does burst.
As consumers balance the need for water with the cost of keeping water hot 24/7, the market has developed two solutions. Some homes use both the old style and add a new unit as well:
Replacing a hot water heater will cost you about $900 – $4000. However, the average cost to repair home damage from catastrophic failure is about the same. Paying attention to the condition and age of your unit is the best way to save you money and aggravation. 1) Maintain your unit and 2) replace before disaster strikes.
