Frequently asked questions about water heater replacements
What is the most common problem with water heaters?
The most common problem with water heaters is that they simply stop working. This can happen for a variety of reasons, such as a blown fuse, a worn-out heating element, or a faulty thermostat. These issues can usually be resolved quickly and easily by replacing the defective components or resetting the thermostat.
Is it better to fix or replace the water heater?
If your water heater is more than 10 years old, it is usually more cost-effective to replace it rather than try to fix it. However, if your water heater is newer and under warranty, then you should contact the manufacturer before making any decisions as they may cover some of the costs associated with repairs or replacement parts. In addition, if you're experiencing any unusual smells coming from your water heater or have noticed rust spots on the exterior of the unit then it's time to replace your unit as these are signs that your water heater has reached its lifespan and needs to be replaced.
What is the average life expectancy of a hot water heater?
The average life expectancy of a hot water heater depends on how well you maintain it; however, generally speaking, most modern hot water heaters last between 8-12 years before needing to be replaced. By performing regular maintenance such as flushing out sediment build-up and checking for leaks periodically, you can extend the life expectancy of your hot water heater significantly.
