“I cannot say enough about CR plumbing. Top notch from start to finish. It's hard to find a company that treats their clients like family but that's their vibe!”- Jenn F.
We rely on our water heaters all day, every day. Often, we don’t even realize how much we use hot water until the water heater isn’t working. Because water heaters are under constant use, problems are inevitable. Sooner or later, you will need to have your water heater repaired or replaced.
Repair is often most suitable for water heaters that aren’t very old and need a simple repair. Frequently, the problem can be solved by replacing the damaged components, such as a heating element, valve, or thermostat. Water heater repair is often not the best option for more significant problems with older water heaters.
How Long Do Water Heaters Last?
A typical residential water heater has a lifespan of 6 to 13 years. Electric and gas water heaters also vary in lifespan. Gas ones last 8-12 years, while electric heaters can last upwards of 10-15 years.
The longevity of your tank is affected by things like the type of water running through it and whether you have kept up with draining and flushing the tank every year as recommended by tank manufacturers. With proper maintenance, your tank can last even longer.
If your tank is more than 12 years old, you are on borrowed time! When choosing a new hot water heater, be sure to pick one that is the right size for your home and family. Also, consider the type of water you have in your area. If you have hard water, you may need to choose a tank that is designed to resist corrosion.
When Should a Water Heater Be Replaced?
A water heater should be replaced when it:
- Has reached the end of its expected life, usually 8-10 years for a tank model
- Produces rusty hot water
- Needs frequent repairs
- Makes loud banging or rumbling noises
When it is time to replace the water heater, you must choose the best model for your home. The main options are traditional water heaters that use a storage tank to hold heated water and tankless water heaters. There are advantages and disadvantages to each type of water heater.
Tank vs. Tankless Water Heater
Tank water heaters are the type that is most commonly found in homes. Tank water heaters are less expensive to install, but they don’t last as long. Your hot water supply is limited to the amount of water held in the tank. When it runs out, you will have to wait for it to refill and heat the water again. It is essential to select a large tank to meet your hot water needs.
Tankless water heaters don’t have a storage tank because they heat the water on demand. The water is heated with either heating elements or gas burners, depending on whether it is an electric or gas unit. Tankless models provide a steady supply of hot water. The higher installation cost is the biggest downside of this water heater, but the longer lifespan and energy savings from the improved energy efficiency can help offset the price difference.
