Water Heater Replacement

Water heaters can last for as long as 20 years, but eventually they will all need to be replaced. When the time comes for water heater replacement at your Ogden home or business, call the team at Desert Edge Plumbing. We are the area’s preferred water heater replacement company. 

Residential Water Heater Replacement

You can expect a traditional water heater to last anywhere from six to 12 years, although it is not unheard of for some to last longer. While residential water heaters do not need much maintenance to work efficiently, it’s a good idea to flush your tank once a year to rid it of the sediment that falls to the bottom of the tank. This sediment prevents the heating element from heating the water efficiently, and could reduce your water heater’s life span. This task is especially important here in Utah, where we have hard water. 

Once you’ve gotten all the life you can out of your residential water heater, you’re looking at water heater replacement. We can replace your old water heater with a new traditional water heater, or you may opt for a tankless water heater. A tankless water heater costs more, but it saves you even more in energy costs over time. That’s because a tankless water heater doesn’t hold hot water for you 24/7; instead, it heats the water for you on demand. Additionally, a tankless water heater can last up to twice as long as a traditional water heater. 

However, a tankless water heater is probably not the best choice for a big, busy household that needs lots of hot water for hours on end. Our residential water heater replacement company can help you determine which type of water heater is best for your home’s needs. 

Commercial Water Heater Replacement

As much of an inconvenience as residential water heater replacement is, commercial water heater replacement is often an emergency. Hospitals, restaurants and hotels cannot operate without hot water. That’s why our commercial water heater replacement company offers same-day service to our customers. 

As a commercial business in Ogden, when you are getting water heater replacement, that’s the time to consider changing the type of water heater you have. Maybe your old commercial water heater was adequate for your needs when you first opened your business, but as it grew, your water heater struggled to keep up with demand, hastening its demise. A larger water heater with a higher BTU rating might be a better choice for commercial water heater replacement. 

You may also want to consider commercial tankless water heaters. Although tankless water heaters are not appropriate for high-usage residential applications, they can be adapted to commercial uses well. For instance, having a single tankless water heater for each guest room in a hotel would work well and save a lot of money. Or, you can install a bank of commercial tankless water heaters to provide a constant source of hot water for another type of establishment.
