The life expectancy of most water heaters is between 8-12 years and they require very little maintenance. It can be easy to forget about your water heater as long as it’s working. Like most things, they work great until they don’t. It only takes one cold shower or a puddle of water in your garage to let you know that it’s time to replace your water heater.
Routine maintenance and repairs can help extend the life of your water heater, but a leaking water heater or one that is over 12 years old may just need to be replaced entirely. Luckily, there are plenty of affordable water heaters on the market that offer a variety of heating methods that can also help lower your energy bill. Let’s learn a little bit more about how and when to maintain, repair, and replace your water heater!

Water heaters come in many different shapes and sizes. The kind you select plays a huge role in your experience. For instance, yours may be operated via electrical energy, solar power or fossil fuels, such as natural gas. Your heater might be a relatively simple affair or include advanced energy-saving functionality. It can also vary in terms of essential factors like how it stores and delivers water. Let’s take a closer look at your options and how we can help with installation.

For those houses that are not gas-powered, and instead have an electric water heater, don’t worry! If your home isn’t equipped with a gas water heater, we can service, repair, replace any electric unit as well. Electric water heaters use elements to heat the water, and sometimes malfunction. We offer convenient inspections to determine whether yours may need repair or replacement.
