Water Heater Installation in the Rockford, IL Area

You rely on your water heater every day to heat the water for your shower, dishes, laundry, and more.

With one call to Axberg, you can have a new water heater installed and enjoy the comfort and safety of a working water heater again. Axberg is well known in the Rockford area for our reliable plumbing service and excellent customer relations.

Signs You Need a New Water Heater

How can you tell that you need a new water heater? While a full water heater breakdown is obvious, other signs are less so. Here are some common indicators that you need to consider replacing your water heater with the help of Axberg:

  • Age Most water heaters have a lifespan of 6 – 12 years. If your water heater is in that age range, it’s going to need to be replaced soon.
  • Visual deteriorationIf your water heater tank is showing visual signs of a problem, then you should consider replacing it.
  • High energy bills An old water heater may be working harder than it needs to and, in turn, raising your energy bills unnecessarily. Replacing your water heater with a new, more efficient one, could lower your high energy bills.
  • Regular repairsIf you are having to schedule repairs on a regular basis, consider replacing your water heater to eliminate the problem and to save you money in the long run.

Are you noticing these signs? Axberg’s team can help you find and install a new water heater that will eliminate them. Give us a call at (815) 873-6003 to schedule your water heater replacement.

Tankless Versus Traditional Water Heaters

If you need a new water heater, you are going to have to decide between a tankless model or a traditional one with a tank. Both have benefits and drawbacks to consider.

Tankless water heaters are more efficient and provide immediate hot water the moment you turn on the tap. Though they can be more expensive to install, they come with a number of other benefits that outshine this one drawback. They take up less space, there’s a lower chance of them running out of hot water, they have a longer lifespan, and they have a lower chance of sediment gathering in them because there’s no large tank that is storing water.

Traditional water heaters are easier and less costly to install, but they do cost more to run. Because they store hot water inside a tank, some heat energy is going to be lost during normal operation.

Are you wondering which one is best for you? Contact Axberg to learn more about the benefits and drawbacks of each option, so you can make an informed choice for your family.

Axberg Reviews
I would like to thank Axberg for helping me out in an unexpected situation! Our water heater 'went out' during the holiday chaos that was ensuing in our house, and Axberg came to assess the situation. Kevin helped determine that it needed to be replaced, that it was under warranty and instructed me on next steps to take care of. I called the manufacturer, as he stated, and was told I needed to get the water heater to the place of purchase to have exchanged. (what?!) Kevin was great! He and his helper came to my house, disconnected my water heater, took it to the store for me, picked up the new one, and installed it for me no questions asked. They were both fantastic!! They even instructed me on anything I needed to know about the new water heater going forward. Thank you so much for taking care of my stressful situation!
