How Long Do Water Heaters Last?

The lifespan of your water heater depends on a number of factors, including the type of water heater you have and how well it is maintained. Water heaters that are not drained and flushed regularly tend to fail sooner than those that are properly maintained. You can expect a tank water heater to last between 8 and 12 years and a tankless unit to last between 15 and 20 years.

What Are the Signs My Water Heater Is Failing?

Your water heater is a machine, and like any machine, it will eventually break down. The good news is that there are usually signs that your water heater is beginning to fail, so you can catch the problem early and save yourself the cost of a major repair.

Pay attention to the following warning signs:

  • Your water is not as hot as it used to be
  • You are noticing an increase in your utility bills
  • There is a funny smell coming from the area around your water heater
  • Your water heater is making strange noises
  • Your water heater is leaking
  • Your water is rust-colored
  • Your water heater has a broken valve or a cracked tank

If you notice any of these warning signs, call our team right away. We can inspect your water heater and let you know if the problem is minor and can be repaired quickly, or if you are facing a major issue that will require a new water heater.

When Should I Replace My Water Heater?

Over time, all water heaters will need to be replaced. Eventually, your water heater will fail and you will face a major repair if you don't replace it. There are, however, other good reasons to consider replacing your water heater. For example, if you move to a new home, a new water heater can help you feel more at home. If you are updating your home, new appliances and fixtures are part of the package.

If you are considering replacing your water heater, let our team at On The Way AC Plumbing & Electrical help you find the right water heater to meet your needs. We offer a wide variety of units, including tank and tankless models, so you can find the perfect fit for your home.
