If you have found yourself in a situation where it appears that the water heater in your Philadelphia area home is in need of replacing, the question may be asked: “Who should I call to replace my water heater?” This indeed is a valid question because if you search Google for “water heater replacement in Philadelphia” Google will show you independent contractors, construction companies, home-improvement services, handyman services, HVAC services and plumbing services all saying that they are the best when it comes to water heater replacement in Philadelphia.

As a Full Service Master Plumber specializing in the repair and replacement of hot water heaters in Philadelphia, our view might be a little biased; however there’s a reason why a plumbing service is the right choice for the replacement or repair of your water heater:

A professional plumber can tell you if your water heater really needs to be replaced.

With so many of these other types of companies out representing themselves as a water heater replacement service in Philadelphia, you must wonder if replacement is always the best option. Because of these handyman and remodeling services are not trained and experienced in diagnosis, replacement really is their only option; however, when you utilize the services of a master plumber you may find that options are available.

As an experienced, full service, master plumber; iFixdit LLC would never recommend the replacement of a water heater unless the following conditions exist:

  • The frequency of repair for your water heater is excessive (More than 1 service call per year)
  • The efficiency level of the water heater clearly affecting the utility bill.
  • The estimated cost of a water heater repair is greater than 40% of the cost of a new water heater.
  • You have had a recent bathroom addition or plumbing update that might strain the current size of your water heater.
