Your water heater is an essential part of your home. It gives you hot water for quick morning showers, relaxing evening baths, your dishwasher, your washing machine and everyday cleaning.
Water heaters don’t last forever, unfortunately. The average life expectancy of a storage tank water heater is 10 years. If your unit is near or past that age, now is the time to contact Tidewater Energy to begin the replacement process.

To reduce energy costs, consider using a propane tankless water heater in your home. Compared with a storage tank water heater, which continuously reheats the same water even when you’re away, a tankless heater gives you endless hot water, on demand!
You don’t have to worry about running out of hot water with a propane tankless water heater. Your family can use it simultaneously for showering, washing dishes and other chores without any concerns.
Here’s how propane tankless water heaters work. You turn on your hot water faucet or an appliance such as your dishwasher or washing machine. Water from your home’s water line enters the heater. The unit contains a heating element powered by propane. This heating element is powerful enough to quickly heat the water to the desired temperature, and the water then flows to its destination. The unit will continue heating the incoming water until there is no longer a need for hot water, then it will turn off automatically.
With propane tankless water heaters, you can save up to 40% on your water heating energy costs, because they only use energy when you need hot water. Heating water usually makes up around 20% of a home’s total energy expenses. So, switching to a propane tankless water heater will help you save money right away and for years to come.
Because there is no tank, propane tankless water heaters are small — approximately the size of a suitcase. That means they can be installed in closets or laundry rooms.
Propane tankless water heaters provide security for your home. Because they don’t have a tank, you don’t need to worry about tank failure and the damage and expense that go with that.
You also get more for your investment, as propane tankless water heaters on average last at least 20 years, twice as long as a storage tank water heater.
If your water heater tank fails, it can be expensive. You must replace the unit quickly, and you could also experience water damage in your home and possessions near the leak.
Replacing your water heater before the tank fails can help you avoid any inconvenience, expense and property loss. This will give you ample time to explore different options and make an informed decision, without the pressure of a looming emergency.
Check your water heater regularly. If you see any of the below signs, contact Tidewater Energy right away so that we can come check it out and begin the replacement process.
