Our Brentwood water heater repair team will always suggest upgrading from a conventional heater to a tankless one when the situation calls for a replacement. This is because they last almost twice as long as new conventional water heaters and cost less to run. They are also easier and less expensive to maintain and repair. Even though tankless heaters are the best choice when you need a new water heater, they aren't always the best choice if you simply need a repair. Sometimes it is more economical to repair your current water heater and employ heat loss stops to make it run at peak efficiency. Some of these suggestions may be to insulate water heater lines and purchase an insulated cover for the unit itself.
This mitigates the heat loss and allows you to turn down the temperature of your heater thus saving both money on heating and extending the life of the sacrificial anode on the heater interior.
