How to Tell if You Need Hot Water Heater Repair
Most water heaters typically last anywhere from 8-12 years, depending on how hard the water in your area is as well as the frequency you schedule regular maintenance. If you are experiencing issues with your water heater before the ten year mark you may be able to get away with a repair instead of a replacement service, depending on the issue at hand.
Common signs of a failing water heater:
- No hot water coming out of your pipes
- Strange sounds such as banging, popping, or rumbling
- Cloudy water is coming out of your faucet
- Rust-colored water is coming out of your faucet
- Water is pooling underneath your tank
- Water does not get as hot as it used to or takes longer to heat up
How Long Do Water Heaters Last?
The lifespan of a water heater can vary depending on various factors, such as the type of water heater, quality of installation, maintenance, and usage patterns. Traditional tank-style water heaters typically last between 8 to 12 years. However, with proper care, they can sometimes last up to 15 years. On the other hand, tankless water heaters tend to have a longer lifespan and can last around 15 to 20 years or more.
