Considering a replacement

If the technicians determine that your hot water system is beyond repair or would be too costly to repair, you would need to buy a replacement system. You have several options, so discuss with the plumbers to choose the right one. You would need to consider different factors to make an informed choice. First, decide the type of heater you need. Compare the pros and cons of gas and electric-powered systems. Check out if there is enough sunlight on your property to have a solar heater. 

Also, you need to figure out whether you want an outdoor or indoor system. While you calculate the costs, check out the buying and installation costs, the operating costs, and whether the system is energy efficient. Finally, you have to consider other practical aspects such as the number of people in your home and how many bathrooms you have.
