Life Expectancy of a Hot Water Heater
Typically, you can expect a water heater to last anywhere from 11-15 years depending on water and fuel quality. Gas fired water heaters are available in both tank and tankless varieties and can run on either natural gas or propane.
When water heaters fail, not only is it inconvenient, but it’s also uncomfortable! Our knowledgeable technicians can identify the source of your water heater’s issues and can offer effective solutions to resolve any issues you may be experiencing.
Some signs that your water heater needs to be serviced or replaced:
- Not supplying adequate hot water
- Taking a long time to heat the water
- Fluctuating temperatures
- Leaking from the water tank or the relief valve
- Making noises outside of the norm
Traditional vs. Tankless Water Heaters:
What’s the Difference?
Tank water heaters are what we would describe as a “traditional” water heater. They are affordable, reliable and require minimal maintenance.
Tankless water heaters are sometimes referred to as “on demand” water heaters.
They take up minimal space and have the ability to provide limitless hot water because the water is heated as it enters the water heater, not as it is stored in a tank.
This also makes them more efficient than a traditional tank water heater.
Our Santa Rosa water heaters experts are happy to discuss the benefits of these options based on your needs.
