Buying a new water heater is not really the most exciting way to spend a decent amount of money. It is, however, something that you are going to have to do eventually. When that time comes, you’ll obviously want to be sure that you schedule your water heater replacement with a trained professional, and only after you’ve reviewed your replacement options carefully. Of course, this does also beg the question of when, exactly, you are supposed to be replacing your water heater.
