What to Avoid When Buying a New Water Heater
At A.M. Plumbing & Rooter, we understand that choosing a new hot water heater for your home can be overwhelming. After all, it is something you don’t do a lot, which is why you need to do it right. Read on as we share the things you should avoid when buying a water heater:
Purchasing the Wrong Heater Size
Bigger doesn’t always mean better. An oversized water heater will only waste energy because it will constantly warm up the water you don’t use. Meanwhile, an undersized unit needs to exert more effort to meet your hot water needs, leading to costly water heater repair in Oceanside, CA. Ensure you have the appropriate size for your home.
Not Considering All Available Options
Water heaters aren’t limited to traditional tank models. There are now more advanced and energy-efficient options that will help you save money in the long run. A tankless water heater, for instance, only heats water when needed, which can help reduce energy costs. You can also opt for solar heaters, heat pumps, and condensing units.
Focusing Solely On Pricing
Basing solely on the price tag is another mistake many people make because they end up overspending in the long run. It’s also crucial to think for the long term and consider the costs associated with water heater installation, repair, and maintenance.
Waiting Until the Old Water Heater Fails to Buy a New One
Waiting for your water heater to fail can be a hassle. In some cases, it can lead to flooding. If your unit is over 10 years old and exhibits red flags like banging noises and rusty water, it’s time to invest in a new one.

Here's What Our Customers Are Saying About Us.
This afternoon we found a leak after disconnecting our refrigerator. We called A.M. Plumbing. Their response time was excellent. They arrived to our house within an hour after calling them. When the plumber got to the house, he was able to rapidly diagnose and fix the problem. He was very professional, did a great job and they charged us a very reasonable fee. I would recommend A.M. Plumbing to anyone that needs plumbing repairs. Thank you, again, for a job well done!
I have called A.M. plumbing twice. Both times the service was excellent. He was able to talk to me about the problem and offer his recommendations. I found him to be trustworthy and reliable, which is what I am looking for in a plumber. I would highly recommend A.M.Dan Steele
Alex and his team are by far the easiest to work with! From the time I spoke with Kristen(sp?) to the time the job was complete they spoke to me like a person and not like I'm an idiot. I had a whole house repipe and an awesome never run out of hot water tankless water heater installed. They were professional and cleaned up after themselves. So glad to have found them on here and will be sure to pass along my experience with them to others. Thank you Alex and the team at AM, our family of 5 can finally have hot showers again!!
