Frequently Asked Questions About Water Heater Repairs

What is the most common problem with water heaters?

Water heaters can experience various malfunctions, but the most common problem is a lack of hot water. This can be caused by a malfunctioning thermostat, a broken heating element, or a leak in the tank. Other common issues include strange noises, rusty water, and a lack of pressure.

Is it better to fix or replace a water heater?

The answer depends on the age and condition of your water heater. If your unit is relatively new and has a minor issue, then it’s typically best to repair it. However, if your water heater is over ten years old, it may be time to consider replacing it. In general, water heaters have a lifespan of around 10-15 years, and over time, they become less efficient and more prone to issues.

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

As mentioned above, the average lifespan of a water heater is 10-15 years. However, with proper maintenance and care, some units can last up to 20 years or more. If you want to extend the life of your water heater, make sure to flush it regularly, check the anode rod, and address any issues promptly.

What are the signs your water heater is going out?

There are several signs that your water heater is on its way out, including a lack of hot water, rust-colored water, strange noises, leaks, and a damaged tank. If you notice any of these issues, it’s important to address them promptly to avoid more severe problems down the line. Additionally, if your water heater is over a decade old, it’s best to start considering replacement options.
