When Should You Replace Your Water Heater?
Even when your water heater is installed perfectly, problems can arrive. Our Sioux Falls plumbers are equipped to solve a wide range of issues, and work hard to repair them before we ever recommend a replacement. However, while our team is equipped to handle issues like minor leaks, noisy systems, and lack of hot water, sometimes replacing the system is the best option.
How Long Do Water Heaters Last?
There are several factors that can affect a hot water heater’s life expectancy.
These factors include:
- The type of water heater (traditional or tankless)
- How old it is
- How well maintained it is
- The quality of the water
- How often it is used
- And more
A traditional tank water heater can last anywhere from 8-12 years, whereas tankless water heaters can last up to 20 years or longer. That being said, regular water heater maintenance plays a large role in extending the life expectancy of your water heater, no matter what type it is.
Tankless water heaters are more expensive upfront, but they save money in the long run due to their energy efficiency. When it comes to how long hot water heaters last, the quality of installation can also play a role.
Poor water heater installation can lead to leaks and other issues that can shorten the lifespan of your water heater. To ensure your water heater is installed and maintained correctly, reach out to the experienced Sioux Falls water heater experts at Copper Cottage!
Signs You Need Water Heater Replacement
- Your Unit is Over 10 Years Old -
If your water heater is getting up to or past the 10 year mark, you may think about replacing your unit. As water heaters get older, they become much less efficient as well as break down far more frequently.
- The Base Of The Tank Is Leaking -
If you notice a puddle of water around your water heater, chances are that the inside of your water heater has rusted and cracked, which allows the water to leak. It's important to replace this as soon as possible as a leak can quickly turn into a flood and cause even more damage.
- Your Energy Bill Continues To Rise -
Have you noticed your energy bill seems to be rising month over month? It could be that your water heater is nearing the end of it's lifespan and is in need of replacement. As water heaters get older, they become less efficient and they require more energy to provide the same amount of hot water as before.
