How Long Does a Water Heater Last?

The average tank water heater will last around 10 to 15 years. This can be extended if you have regular maintenance done on your unit. If you have a tankless system, it can last up to 20 years. This is because they are not running constantly, so they do not wear out as quickly. If you have a water heater that is over 10 years old and it is not working properly, it is probably time to replace it.

How to Tell If You Need Water Heater Repair

It can be difficult to tell when your water heater is in need of repair, especially if it is in a hidden location. However, there are a few signs that you can look out for that will give you a good indication that your water heater needs repairs. For example, if you notice that your water is taking longer to heat up, or if you notice that there are strange noises coming from the unit, it’s time to call a professional. Additionally, if you notice that your hot water is discolored or has a strange odor, you should reach out to a professional.

Other signs of a water heater in need of repair include:

  • Water pooling around the unit: If there is water around your water heater, it could be a sign that the tank has a leak. If this is the case, you should reach out to a professional as soon as possible. A leaking tank can quickly turn into a burst tank, which can cause serious water damage to your home.
  • Your water is too hot: If your water is coming out of your faucets at a scalding temperature, it is a sign that your water heater is not functioning properly. This is a serious issue because it can cause burns on your skin, especially if you have small children. You should reach out to a professional as soon as possible to have your water heater repaired.
  • Your water pressure is low: If your water pressure is low, it could be a sign that there is a blockage in your water heater. This can be caused by sediment that has built up in the tank. You should reach out to a professional to have your water heater inspected and cleaned.

When Should I Replace My Water Heater?

There are a few signs that you can look out for that will give you a good indication that your water heater needs to be replaced.

  • Age: The first sign is age. If your water heater is over 10 years old, it is time to start thinking about replacing it.
  • Rust: The second sign is rust. If you notice that your water heater has rust on it, especially around the pressure relief valve, it is a sign that you need to replace it.
  • Leaks: The third sign is that your water heater is leaking. If your water heater is leaking, it is time to replace it. A leaking water heater can quickly turn into a burst water heater, which can cause serious water damage to your home.
  • Not producing enough hot water: The fourth sign is that your water heater is not producing enough hot water. If you notice that your water is not as hot as it used to be, or if you notice that you are running out of hot water more quickly than normal, it is a sign that you need to replace your water heater.
  • Strange noises: Finally, if your water heater is making strange noises, it is a sign that you need to replace it. Strange noises can indicate that there is a problem with the heating element or that there is sediment buildup in the tank.

Should I Repair or Replace My Water Heater?

There are a few things that you should consider when deciding whether you should repair or replace your water heater.

The first thing that you should consider is the age of your water heater. If your water heater is over 10 years old, it is time to replace it. The average lifespan of a water heater is 10 to 15 years. If your water heater is over 10 years old and it is not working properly, it is probably time to replace it.

The second thing that you should consider is the cost of the repair. If the cost of the repair is more than 50% of the cost of a new water heater, it is probably more cost-effective to replace your water heater.

The third thing that you should consider is the efficiency of your water heater. If your water heater is old and inefficient, it is costing you more money to operate than a new, energy-efficient model. Replacing your old water heater with a new, energy-efficient model can save you a significant amount of money on your energy bills.

Finally, you should consider the performance of your water heater. If your water heater is not producing enough hot water, or if you are running out of hot water more quickly than normal, it is a sign that your water heater is not functioning properly and that it needs to be repaired or replaced.
