General repairs are a fact of home ownership that many of us willingly accept in return for the pleasure of owning our own home. That being said, it's not always easy knowing how to go about making home repairs, especially if you've never done them before. This is especially true when electric hot water heaters go out, as repairs often need done immediately. In this situation the best course of action is to hire a plumber to replace your hot water heater, or find a family member or friend to assist you in replacing your hot water heater.
In either case, you'll need to decide which type of water heater you would like to use as a replacement: electric, natural gas, propane, or oil. Although it depends on your situation, often your best best is going to be electric hot water heaters, as they provide a number of benefits over the other types. First, an electric water heater has 100% energy usage, meaning that all of the energy flowing to it is being used. Another advantage is convenience; with an electric water heater, there is no pilot light to mess with and no propane or oil tank to worry about filling. They also come in a variety of styles, letting you choose the best electric water heater for your family's needs.
For example, Bosch and GE both offer compact, on demand electric water heaters that provide instant hot water, without a large water tank. These small water heaters are ideal for a variety of situation, from small homes with limited space, to homes that have a large hot water demand. For those who prefer full size electric water heaters, Marathon is just one brand that offers a large range of electric hot water heaters, that range in capacity from 15 gallons to 105 gallons.
No matter which brand and style of water heater you choose, you'll want to read product reviews and specs, as well as additional information on each, such as that found on the energystar website. By choosing a good electric water heater, and making sure it's installed properly, you'll have one less home repair to worry about, at least for the next fifteen to twenty years.
