Regular maintenance, such as flushing the tank, checking the anode rod, and addressing any issues promptly, can help prolong the lifespan of your water heater.
Here are the typical lifespans for different types of water heaters:
- Conventional Tank Water Heater: On average, a well-maintained conventional tank water heater can last between 8 to 12 years. However, with proper maintenance and occasional repairs, some units can last up to 15 years.
- Tankless Water Heater: Tankless water heaters have a longer lifespan compared to conventional tanks. With regular maintenance, a tankless water heater can last 20 years or more. These units are known for their durability and longevity.
- Heat Pump Water Heater: Heat pump water heaters generally have a lifespan of around 10 to 15 years. Regular maintenance and proper usage can help extend their longevity.
