What Water Heater Is Right for Your Home?

When choosing a water heater, several factors should be considered to ensure you get the system best suited for your needs. The size of your home and the number of occupants directly influence the capacity required to satisfy your hot water needs.

Budget constraints may also influence your decision-making, as some systems are more expensive than others. The energy source and efficiency ratings also impact long-term savings, so it’s important to keep this in mind.

At Southern Pride Service, we offer traditional storage tank and tankless water heaters, each providing unique benefits. While storage tanks are cost-effective upfront, our tankless water heaters provide on-demand hot water, saving space and energy in the long run, making them a great option for many households.

Find the water heater system that’s right for your needs.

Signs You Need Water Heater Repair

You may not realize it, but your water heater is always communicating with you. It communicates what state it’s in so that big repairs don’t have to be unexpected.

These are the common warning signs that your water heater could use a repair:

  • Inconsistent water temperature: Water that frequently changes temperature is a clear sign that your water heater needs some work.
  • Unusual sounds: If you hear weird noises coming from your water heater, such as banging, popping, or rumbling, you should have your water heater inspected.
  • Water leaks: A poorly functioning water heater will also have leaks. Check your water heater for any puddles or signs of water pooling.
  • Foul odors: Your water heater might be struggling if you notice unpleasant smells from the hot water.
  • Water heater age: Most water heaters have a 10-year lifespan. If yours approaching that range or beyond it, have a professional look at it.

Is It Time for a New Water Heater?

It’s important to know when it may be time to upgrade to a new water heater to prevent hot water disruptions in your home. These are a few signs it’s time to consider replacing your water heater:

  • Age: If your water heater is over 8–12 years old for a storage tank unit or 20 years old for a tankless unit, it may be time for a replacement.
  • Leaks: Visible leaks or pooling water around the base of your water heater could signify internal corrosion or a failing tank.
  • Temperature: Fluctuating temperatures or the inability to maintain hot water at desired levels may indicate mineral buildup or a failing heating element.
  • Noisiness: Rumbling, popping, or banging coming from the water heater suggests sediment buildup or other internal issues.

Frequently Asked Questions About Water Heaters

Common questions we receive about water heaters include:


Why won't the pilot light on my water heater stay lit?

If the pilot light on your water heater won’t stay lit, you could have a problem with the thermocouple, gas supply, or another component. Have a water heater expert inspect it to diagnose and resolve the problem.

Why do I keep running out of hot water?

You might be running out of hot water because your water heater has issues with the heating element, thermostat, or sediment buildup in the tank. Have a professional inspect your unit and fix any issues.

Can I still use a water heater if it's leaking?

It’s not recommended to still use a water heater if it’s leaking. This can cause further damage to the unit. We recommend turning your water heater off if it’s leaking, and having a professional repair the leak.
