Water Heater Repair and Replacement | FAQs
How often should my water heater be inspected?

How long do water heaters last?
Most hot water heaters last 6 to 13 years.
You can help your water heater last by having it inspected once a year.
Should we repair or replace our broken water heater?
It depends! Knowing your water heaters age and repair costs can help determine the answer.
Start by assessing the age. Is your hot water heater over 10 years old? If so - it will likely be more cost-effective to have a new one installed. If your water heater is 5 years old or less, repair will likely be a great option.
Next, how much will water heater repair cost? If repair costs are over half the cost of a new water heater, it'll be more cost-effective to opt in for a replacement.
