How Long Does a Water Heater Last?
Traditional tank-based water heaters typically have a lifespan of 8 to 12 years, while tankless units can last longer at up to 20 years. With that being said, your water heater’s useful lifespan will vary depending on how well it is maintained and the quality of its components.
Your water heater may be on its way out if:
- You hear clanging or rumbling coming from the tank
- Your hot water is rusty colored or brown
- Water is pooling around your unit’s base
- Your unit is more than 10 years old
- Your unit does not produce enough hot water
- Your unit only produces lukewarm water
Do I Need Servicing on My Water Heater?
There can be a multitude of reasons for you to have a problem with your water heater. Over time, sediment will build up in your water heater and it can create a number of issues. This buildup happens as a result of improper filtering of the water through your system. If you are noticing that your water heater is not providing hot water for as long as it used to or is experiencing one of the following issues, you should consider having a professional Columbus water heater repair expert come for an inspection.
Common Water Heater Problems, Include:
- A damaged, broken or defective thermostat
- Issues with the pilot light not igniting
- A malfunctioning or broken temperature & pressure relief valve
- Loose or unsecured connections
- A corroding anode rod
- An incorrectly or undersized water heater
- A blocked or obstructed drain valve
- Electrical issues with the wiring
- Damaged heating elements
In some cases, it may be time to replace your water heater if it is getting old to avoid potential issues down the road. This is especially true if your water heater is located in your basement, as older water heaters have a greater potential for leaking and causing serious water damage.
What Happens If You Don't Flush Your Water Heater?
Flushing your water heater is a regular maintenance item that is important because it helps you get the longest life out of your water heater. Ideally, water heaters should be flushed once a year in order to prevent sediment from gathering in the water heater and in your pipes. Additionally, flushing your water heater can help prevent pipe bursts, water pressure decline, discolored or foul-smelling water from coming out of faucets and more.
