The average water heater will last approximately 10-12 years based on the water conditions and usage. Have you noticed your hot water not lasting as long? What about problems with a small leak near your water heater? Older water heaters can have problems keeping the water hot as sediment can start to form, causing the water heater to work harder to keep the water hot. Replacing an old water heater with an energy efficient model will help to reduce energy consumption, and will provide you with more hot water. We can come to your home and troubleshoot your existing water heater to give you an estimate on a new one if you feel your current model is not efficient and performing how you need.
