Now is the time to get started on replacing it, as you have the time to research your options and work with the equipment professionals at Vaughn Oil to make sure you get the best one for your home.

Here are four reasons that upgrading to a new water heater is a great call.


If your water heater is taking longer to heat water, meaning you have a longer wait to take a shower, that’s a sign it’s time to replace it. An older water heater often is not able to heat the hot water as quickly as it used to. A new water heater will get your water hot faster, so those long waits are over.


As time goes on, your water heater has gotten less and less efficient. To heat your water and keep it hot, it needs more energy than before. You can reduce your environmental impact without giving up a bit of comfort by upgrading to a new, more energy-efficient water heater!

Saving money

A new water heater’s increased efficiency will help you save money on your energy bills. You’ll see the results in a big way because water heating makes up about 20% of your home’s energy costs.

An older water heater’s vent pipe might deteriorate with time, posing a higher risk of carbon monoxide poisoning in your house. During a power outage, older water heaters may not turn off automatically, posing a fire hazard.
