Do I Need a New Water Heater?
Water heaters tend to last between eight and 12 years, and the industry recommendation is that the 10-year mark is when you should consider a hot water heater replacement. After 10 years, hot water heaters become less efficient and thus cost you more on a monthly basis. After 12 years, you really are on borrowed time and running the risk of sudden failure and even water damage. If your hot water heater is not that old yet, you can maximize that investment by inspecting it yourself each month and by scheduling an annual maintenance appointment with Gold Star. If your system is making odd noises or you notice reduced hot water quality, you should contact us for immediate service.
Common Reasons for a Water Heater Replacement
- Over 10 Years Old

Find the Right Hot Water Heater for Your Needs
It is important to size a hot water heater for your particular household. Choosing a water heater that is too small will negatively affect your quality of life and choosing a unit that is too big will hit you in the wallet unnecessarily. Our hot water heater replacement specialists can help you select the perfect model based on your usage. If you are interested, we can help you explore alternatives to a standard hot water heater, such as a tankless system or a heat pump water heater.
Gas Hot Water Heater Replacement
Gas water heaters have a burner fueled by either natural gas or propane that heats the water in the tank along with an exhaust system that removes any toxic gases. These units are not only less expensive than their electric counterparts but able to replenish their hot water supply faster as well.
Electric Hot Water Heater Replacement
Electric water heaters have heated coils rather than a burner, which avoids any toxic byproduct. Heating water with electric coils does take longer, but electric units allow for larger water storage capacity and are an excellent option for the homeowner who does not have access to a natural gas line.

Other Hot Water Heaters We Replace
Our specialists install all types of water heaters, including traditional tank water heaters, tankless water heaters and heat pump water heaters. We work with electric and natural gas water heaters but also those fueled by propane, oil, geothermal energy and solar energy. You can have us replace your existing system with a newer version of that same technology, or we can carry out a conversion. If you are not sure which water heater type is best for you, we can provide a consultation to help you make that decision.
Gold Star also installs, services and repairs on-demand water heater systems. Tankless systems are becoming more common in new construction, and many homeowners are upgrading to tankless water heaters because they are more energy efficient and have a longer lifespan than units with tanks.
Hybrid hot water heaters are a third option and can be installed as a standalone unit or integrated into an HVAC system. Gold Star installs, services and repairs heat pump water heaters. They are a highly efficient option that often provides a faster return on investment than other solutions.
