Water Heater Replacement Options for Washington, D.C. Homes
Modern water heaters come in various types, with several innovations and features to fit practically any need. When it’s time to select a new water heater for your home, choose from some of the most popular options, like:
- Storage tank (standard) water heaters: These systems have an insulated tank that holds and heats water. Tank water heaters come in gas and electric varieties, with natural gas water heaters typically being more efficient and affordable to run but usually more costly to purchase.
- Tankless (on-demand) water heaters: Also available in gas and electric varieties, tankless water heaters use coils to heat water on demand, rather than using a tank to heat and store water. These systems can be very energy-efficient, and they can offer an endless supply of hot water.
- Heat pump (hybrid) water heaters: Exceptionally energy-efficient, these systems use heat from the air to warm water up. While hybrid water heaters can provide plenty of hot water on demand, they may not be the best option in colder regions.
- Solar water heaters: Using the sun’s energy to heat water, these water heaters include a roof-mounted cell and a backup energy system. While solar water heaters can come with attractive rebates, they are best suited for sunny areas, rather than cooler regions with more dramatic seasonal weather changes.
To choose the best new water heater for your home from these options, you’ll need to consider factors like:
- How many people live in your home and your home’s overall hot water usage
- Water heater capacity and size
- Your current plumbing system

Signs It’s Time for Water Heater Replacement
You may not know you have a broken water heater until you don’t have access to hot water in your home! Before that happens, though, your water heater will likely raise some red flags that it’s about to fail.
Knowing these warning signs can help you take action to get a broken water heater replaced before it breaks down and leaves you with cold water. The warning signs to look out for include water that gets really hot, followed by no hot water at all, as well as a water heater that:
- Is at least 8 years old, as most water heaters last between 8 to 12 years
- Cannot meet your hot water needs
- Looks rusty or is corroding
- Smells funky or emits a foul odor
- Makes odd noises, like rumbling, popping, or whining
Don’t ignore these red flags! These problems don’t fix themselves, and they usually mean a water heater is on its way out. Instead, contact Len The Plumber when you notice these—or any—problems with your water heater.
