Frequently asked questions about water heaters

Is it better to fix or replace a water heater?

Deciding whether to repair or replace your water heater depends on multiple factors, such as the age and condition of the unit, the nature of the problem, and the cost involved. In general, if your water heater is less than ten years old, it might be more cost-effective to have it repaired, especially for minor issues. However, if your unit is older or experiencing significant issues, it may make more sense to invest in a new, energy-efficient water heater with a longer life expectancy.

What is the average life expectancy of a hot water heater?

The average life expectancy of a hot water heater varies depending on factors such as the type of water heater, usage, and maintenance. For instance, traditional tank-style water heaters typically last between 8 to 12 years, while tankless water heaters can last up to 20 years or more. Regular maintenance, such as flushing the tank annually and inspecting the anode rod, can help prolong the life of your water heater.

What are the signs your water heater is going out?

Here are some common signs that your water heater may be nearing the end of its life:

a. Age: If your water heater is close to or beyond its average life expectancy, it may be time for a replacement.

b. Rusty water: Rusty or discolored water coming from your hot water taps could indicate corrosion inside your water heater.

c. Frequent repairs: If you find yourself constantly calling for repairs, it might be more cost-effective to replace the unit altogether.

d. Inconsistent water temperature: If you notice that your hot water temperature fluctuates or doesn't reach the desired temperature, it could be a sign of a failing water heater.

e. Leaking tank: A leaking water heater tank is often a sign that it's time for a replacement.

How do I choose the right water heater for my home?

When selecting a new water heater, consider factors such as your household's hot water usage, fuel type, energy efficiency, and budget. Evaluate the advantages and disadvantages of different types of water heaters, such as tank-style, tankless, heat pump, and solar models. Additionally, look for energy-efficient models that meet or exceed ENERGY STAR standards to save on energy costs and reduce your environmental impact.
