Water Heater Replacement on Long Island

If your water heater is malfunctioning or reaching the end of its lifespan, it’s crucial to consider a replacement for an uninterrupted hot water supply and optimal efficiency in your home. Trust the experts at Universal Home Services to guide you through the steps toward a new, energy-efficient replacement for your Long Island home.

When Should I Replace My Water Heater?

Your water heater plays a vital role in your daily life, providing hot water for showers, laundry, and dishwashing. Over time, your water heater deteriorates, leading to decreased efficiency and potential leaks. Replacing your water heater every 10 to 15 years ensures reliable performance and lowers the risk of costly repairs or unexpected failures. Learn how to tell the age of your water heater.

Here are some signs that it’s time to replace your water heater:

  • Unit is over 10 years old
  • Decreased hot water supply
  • Rusty or discolored water
  • Strange noises coming from the water heater
  • Leaking water
  • High energy bills

Know the Difference Between Repair & Replacement

While minor issues with your water heater can often be repaired, eventually, replacement is the more cost-effective and practical solution. Factors such as the age of the unit, frequency of repairs, and energy efficiency should all be considered when deciding between repair and replacement.

A good way to determine if it makes more sense to replace than repair is if the repairs cost more than half the cost of replacement. Older water heaters can be expensive to repair, especially if the one you have is no longer operating at peak performance.

Tax Credits or Incentives for Water Heater Replacements on Long Island

New York homeowners can take advantage of the tax credits available under the Inflation Reduction Act from 2023 through 2032. When you replace your old water heater with a qualifying heat pump water heater, you can receive up to $2,000 in tax credits.
