How Long Do Water Heaters Last?
Depending on the type of water heater you have, as well as the make, model, and level of maintenance the system has received, the average lifespan can vary. However, typically a tank style water heater can last anywhere from 8 to 12 years. The older your water heater is, the more signs of aging may appear, which will indicate the need for a new system.
When to Replace a Water Heater
- If your water heater’s tank has begun to corrode or rust -
If you have noticed that the water coming out of your shower head or faucet is any other color besides clear, chances are it's rust or sediment buildup in your hot water heater and it may need to be replaced.
- Age of Water Heater -
If you water heater is over 12 years old, it may be nearing the end of it's lifespan. As water heaters get older they need more repairs and provide as much water as efficiently.
- If your utility bills have steadily increased -
If you notice that your water bill has steadily increased, it's most likely due to your water heater. As your water heater gets older, it requires more energy to provide the same amount of hot water. When more energy is required, it means it will cost more on your utlility bill.
