Replacing Your Old Water Heater

Nov 28, 2007
There are a number of steps that you will want to consider taking in order to properly ensure that your home is ready to enter onto the market. In other words, there are tasks that you need to undertake in order to place your home in the best possible light if you desire to sell your home for a reasonable and satisfactory asking price in the shortest amount of time possible.

Here you are provided with basic information about improving the sale ability of your residence through the process of replacing an old water heater. Indeed, you will find that you can derive a number of significant benefits when it comes to the sale of your home simply by taking the rather easy step of replacing an old water heater in your home.

Before you can really appreciate how the simple act of replacing the water heater in your home in advance of putting it on the market for sale can be a big step towards improving the value of your home, you need to understand how water, specifically hot water, is being utilized (and wasted) in your home (based on common statistical data):

37% Shower
26% Clothes Washer
14% Dishwasher
12% Bath
11% Sinks

Most experts have come to conclude that it is very, very possible to reduce the amount of money that is being spent on heating water in your home by 50% annually. The best step to take when it comes to working to reduce the cost of heating water in most instances is to replace the older water heater unit in the house with a newer, more energy efficient model.

If you have not gone out and priced water heaters, you need to appreciate that the units themselves are not expensive in the overall scheme of things. This particularly is the case when you take into consideration that amount of money that you will save on heating water in the future or the amount of money you can suggest a potential buyer will save in this regard if that individual elects to purchase your home. In short, an investment of several hundred dollars in some instances literally can result in an increase in the value of your home by up to five times the cost of the new water heater. Moreover, the replacement can be undertaken immediately.

You will want to take at least some time to shop around and compare prices when it comes to energy efficient water heaters. By taking the time to do a bit of shopping around, you are very likely to be able to find a quality unit at a price that is well within your budget. And, again, you really will be making an investment in making your home more marketable. You will be able to sell your home faster and at a better price through the simple process of improving the manner in which water in the residence is heated.
