Water Heater Repair, Replacement & Installation For Your Bryan, OH Home

Get everything back to normal - and even better - with water heater installation and repair services from Ascend Mechanical.


Does My Water Heater Need Replacement?

There are a few factors that go into determining the right solution:

Age - Water heaters only last so long, and the average lifespan varies depending on what type of unit you have. If you have a traditional tank water heater, you can expect it to last around 8 - 12 years; a tankless water heater will last a little longer at 10 - 15 years.

Efficiency - Did you know that your water heater makes up between 10 - 20% of your energy bill? It can easily exceed this if the unit has a leak or other malfunction. It might be a better idea to replace it if it is taking a long time for the water to heat up or if the hot water runs out too fast.

Cost & Frequency Of Repair - Had another repair not too long ago? You may want to consider if it's worth shelling out money for a water heater that is just going to continuously break down until you finally have to buy another one anyway.

At the end of the day, you can always rely on Ascend Mechanical to give you honest guidance on what the best solution is for your interests.
