Some water heaters just aren't worth saving. If your water heater has been giving you problems on an ongoing basis, it's often smarter to replace it than to keep filling the money pit. If your water heater is more than ten years old, it typically missed out on the efficiency gains of modern water heaters.
Older water heaters were typically built with poorer insulating and conducting materials, meaning that they took more energy to heat and lost it quicker to the surrounding air and structures.
Tankless water heaters have fulfilled an interesting niche in the market, but their high-quality parts, long lifespans and smart efficiency gains have made them a viable option for many homeowners, in Oxnard and otherwise. Tankless water heaters by Rinnai and Takagi are designed to last between fifteen and twenty five years, which means that your investment will last for years to come. Tankless water heaters work best for situations where residents don't spend much time at home, and therefore don't need a conventional water heater to cycle night and day, or for residents who spend a lot of time out of town and would rather not turn of their water heater to save energy. Of course, they are also perfect for any household that has to fight for hot water, or deal with showers running cold.
On the other hand, tankless water heaters are not best for every household and living situation. They can cost considerably more than a conventional water heater, and are not advisable for situations that require a lot of parallel hot water usage, such as for households that may use hot water for several uses, simultaneously, and on a regular basis. A tankless water heater may also require new utility connections or system retrofitting, based on your building's situation, but a Oxnard water heater repair tech can always help you evaluate the economic and lifestyle impact between choosing a tankless or conventional water heater.
