Torrance Water Heater Repair

Should You Repair or Replace Your Water Heater?

If you have a tank water heater that's over a decade old, it might be time to start thinking about a replacement. Although tank water heaters typically last between six to 12 years with regular maintenance, they can start to show signs of wear and tear beyond that. On the other hand, tankless water heaters are known to have a much longer lifespan, lasting more than 20 years with proper care and maintenance. It's important to check your water heater's warranty for accurate timelines on replacement, but if you've been experiencing problems with your tank water heater, it's best to consult with a professional to determine the most appropriate course of action.

Water Heaters | FAQs

How Long Do Water Heaters Last?

Traditional water heaters last around 10-15 years. Tankless water heaters should last a solid 20+ years.

How Do I Know My Water Heater Needs To Be Replaced?

Some signs and symptoms that a new water heater is more cost-effective include:

  • The Age of Your Water Heater. If your water heater is nearing the end of its lifespan, chances are the most cost-effective option is to replace your water heater.
  • Strange Noises. The older your water heater gets, the more often it'll start making odd noises. Those knocking or banging noises are likely from the hardened sediment build-up at the bottom of your water heater. This can be a sign you may need a new water heater.
  • Rusty Water. When you turn the hot water on, do you see rusty water? Rusty hot water could be due to issues with the anode rod. If your hot water heater is nearing it's lifespan and producing rusty water, a new water heater will probably be more cost-effective.
