Water Heater Life Expectancy

A water heater will last its full life expectancy when it has been properly maintained. This means that your water heater needs to be professionally serviced. Not only can you help your water heater by doing this, but you may also be able to extend its use past its service life. Most parts on a water heater can be replaced or repaired. However, when the tank has not been flushed or cleaned, then sediments build up and create rust or corrosion. Of course, the rate of usage affects the lifespan of a water heater. A family of 5 will use their water heater far more than an older couple without children. The quality of installation will affect the lifespan of a water heater. When a water heater is installed improperly, this greatly reduces its service life. Also, the quality of the manufacturer will affect how long a water heater will last.

Always choose a better and well-known brand name. You will pay more for the initial investment but it is well worth it. These hot water heaters tend to last longer and they are made from better materials. They are typically more energy efficient and have better warranties. The average for a traditional water heater is between 8-10 years. However, this is just an average. Some water heaters that are properly installed and adequately maintained can last up to 20 years.
