Make the switch to a new demand-type water heater

If you are considering a water heater replacement, you should think about the numerous demand-type water heater advantages you can benefit from. If you are not considering a replacement, perhaps you should be.

In this blog, we’ll run through the advantages of switching to a new tankless system. To get started, contact our team.

Is it time to replace your old water heater?

How can you know if you need to replace your water heater? Here are some important indicators:

  • Your current water heater is 10 or more years old.
  • Your energy bill has gone up without significantly increased use.
  • Your hot water supply runs out more quickly than it used to.
  • There is visible damage to the water tank, such as a crack.

If any one or more of these things is true for you, a new water heater would be a wise investment in the near future, and ABC Cooling, Heating & Plumbing is here to help you make the transition.

The advantages of going tankless

If you haven’t already made the switch to a tankless water heater, now is the time to do it. Instead of storing hot water in a tank that must refill itself before use after it is emptied, tankless water heaters provide hot water continuously, heating the water as it flows. You won’t run out of hot water, even when multiple people are using it at once.

Here are some other demand-type water heater advantages for you to consider:

  • Fewer risks to your home – A tank in an old water heater can experience malfunctions or sustain damage that can lead to flooding or other problems in your home. Tankless water heaters have no tank to burst, and don’t endure the massive amounts of water pressure that can lead to issues.
  • Savings on your energy bill – Tankless water heaters are far more energy-efficient, which means you won’t need to spend as much money heating the same amount of water. In fact, you could cut your bill by more than 20 percent!
  • Longer-lasting equipment – Demand-type water heaters have roughly twice the lifespan of a water heater with a tank. They also have many replaceable parts, so repairs are easier and cost less.

It’s tax refund season, and here’s why you should spend your refund on a new AC

It’s April, and that means it’s spring. It’s also tax refund season. According to the IRS, more than 80% of taxpayers received a refund last year.

While some choose to spend that money on a vacation or a boat, we’d argue that there are good reasons to re-invest that sudden influx of cash into your home.

In this blog, we’ll make the case that you should spend your tax refund on upgrading your old air conditioner to a newer model. We’ll explain the benefits, and who you should call for AC installation here in Hayward and much of the Bay Area.

Here are 4 reasons to spend your tax refund on a new air conditioner

#1. Increase the value of your home

If you’re thinking about selling your home in the near future, you’re probably also thinking about what kind of upgrades you can make to increase your home’s selling value.

An old air conditioner that the new owners know they’ll have to replace can be a major blow to their decision to purchase your home from you. When it comes to investing your tax refund back into your home prior to sale, a new air conditioner makes sense.

By spending your tax refund to buy a new air conditioner for your home prior to sale, you’ll not only be more likely to sell your home for a higher price, but you’ll also be likelier to sell your home faster than your neighbors.

#2. Save on future energy costs

Even if you’re not actively looking to sell your home, a new air conditioner is still a wise choice. Not only will a new air conditioner offer greater reliability (more on that in a minute), but you’ll see greater energy savings, as well. That’s because new air conditioners are more energy-efficient than older systems.

Over time, those enhanced energy savings can really add up. A new air conditioner, installed today, can start saving you money this summer. That’s a good use of your tax refund, if you ask us!

#3. Reduce the risk of a breakdown

If your old air conditioner has consistently been breaking down each and every summer—even with a professional tune-up—it’s time to upgrade. Your tax refund is a great place to start.

After all, not only are you getting subpar cooling and energy-efficiency out of your system, but breakdowns can actively cost you money in AC repair over the summer.

#4. Make your home more comfortable

Ok, so this isn’t quite as forward-thinking as the other items on this list. But, your comfort does matter, and struggling through another hot summer with your old air conditioner—along with the stress it causes—just isn’t worth it.

If you’re between spending your tax refund on a vacation or an HVAC system, choose the latter. You’ll feel the difference every summer for years to come.
