Do you have a water heater that is over 10 years old? If so, it’s time to start planning to replace your water heater.
Beginning the process of upgrading to a new water heater before you need one makes sense. You have time to do your research, comparison shop, and work with the propane appliance experts at Parker Gas to make sure you get the right water heater that meets your needs and is in your budget.
We sell, install, maintain, and repair top-quality water heaters from leading makers including Rinnai. We also install and servicer Rinnai’s tankless water heaters, which give you outstanding comfort with endless hot water on-demand as well as reduced energy costs.
Here are 5 reasons why now is the right time to upgrade to a new, high-efficiency water heater.
How’s your water heater running? Is it taking longer to heat water between showers? An older water heater may not be able to heat the hot water as quickly as it used to. A new water heater will get water hot faster. And a tankless hot water heater means no waiting for hot water ever!
As the years go by, your water heater has become less and less efficient. It needs more energy to heat your water and keep it hot. By upgrading to a new, more energy efficient water heater, you’ll reduce your environmental impact without having to give up a bit of comfort!
The increased efficiency of a new water heater will help cut your energy costs. You’ll see the results in a big way because water heating makes up about 20% of your home’s energy costs. Those savings really soar with a propane tankless water heater. They can cut your water heating energy costs by 40% or more!
The vent pipe on an older model water heater may deteriorate over time, leading to increased risk of carbon monoxide poisoning in your home. Older water heaters may not shut off automatically during a power outage, which is a fire hazard.
Parker Gas is a Rinnai-certified ACE (Advanced Comfort Expert) dealer. We can help you get available rebates from not only Rinnai, but the North Carolina Propane Gas Association that can save you hundreds of dollars on your new water heater.
