Upgrading your water heater can help you conserve water and reduce energy consumption. The technology of traditional water heaters and tankless water heaters has improved dramatically over the past decade, and today’s water heaters use significantly less water and energy.
It may be time to replace your water heater if the unit is:
- More than 10 years old
- No longer providing sufficient hot water
What Is the Lifespan of a Typical Water Heater?
A water heater typically lasts 8 to 12 years, but factors like installation, maintenance, water quality, and usage patterns affect its lifespan. Regular maintenance, flushing, and inspecting heating elements can extend its life. Using a water softener or sacrificial anode rod prevents corrosion. Monitor performance and replace it if it shows signs of aging, like reduced efficiency, frequent repairs, or leaks.
“They were so professional and really understood the scope of the work. Great to communicate with, did the work in the time frame expected, showed up right on schedule, and were very friendly to work with.”- Chris R.
A traditional water heater has a tank that holds between 30 and 50 gallons of hot water. The water must remain hot inside the tank, so you have hot water when you need it. While the energy efficiency of traditional water heaters has greatly improved, there is a better eco-friendly option. Tankless water heaters create hot water on demand, so you save the energy wasted keeping water heated in a tank.
Tankless water heaters offer:
- Up to 35% greater energy efficiency
- Hot water on demand
- Space-saving benefits
- Up to 20 years longer life
