Water heater Repair and Installation FAQs

What is the typical lifespan of a water heater, both tanked and tankless types?

The typical lifespan of a tanked water heater is around 8 to 12 years, depending on factors such as maintenance, water quality, and usage. Tankless water heaters, also known as on-demand water heaters, generally have a longer lifespan, averaging 15 to 20 years. Regular maintenance, including flushing the tank or system, checking and replacing the anode rod in tanked heaters, and ensuring the heating elements are in good condition, can help extend the lifespan of both types of water heaters. Proper care and timely repairs are key to maximizing their longevity.

How often should I flush my water heater?

You should flush your water heater at least once a year to remove sediment buildup and maintain efficiency. In areas with hard water, more frequent flushing, such as every six months, may be necessary. Regular flushing helps prevent sediment from insulating the heating elements, reducing efficiency and potentially causing damage. It also extends the lifespan of your water heater and ensures a consistent supply of hot water. Always follow the manufacturer's recommendations for specific maintenance guidelines.

Water Heater Installation and Replacement

A new water heater is a big investment in your home, and we’re here to help you understand your options and make an informed decision. In general, your options are tankless water heaters and traditional water heaters. The advantage of a tankless system is that it provides “on-demand” heating, whereas a traditional system with a tank needs to burn fuel to provide “standby” heat and keep the water in the tank warm.

If you use a lot of hot water, the efficiency of a tankless system can save you money in the long term. However, traditional water heaters with efficient, insulated tanks can mitigate much of the energy loss. Our expert plumbers will assess your home's needs, help you find the right fit, and get it installed with expert care.
