How Long Do Water Heater Units Usually Last?
A water heater with your typical storage tank built in usually lasts between 8 and 12 years. Those who have their water heater treated regularly have reported lifespans as much as 13 years. It is always a great idea to have your water heater checked and maintained periodically by Fred Glinke Plumbing on an annual basis. This will insure your unit will last as long as possible.
How do You Know whether to Repair or Replace Your Water Heater?
Deciding between repairing or replacing your water heater depends on a number of factors. First, it is important to document your units age and take that into consideration. Many times older machines must be scrapped but many of the newer models can be repaired for the most part. If you have a leaking water heater you can almost always count on needing to replace it. Leaking water heaters can really take their toll on your utility bills and push them into the stratosphere. Therefore it is far more cost effective to replace your old, leaking water heater with a newer and more efficient one.
In some cases, you may be able to get away with repairing a failing or compromised component such as a broken thermostat or bad valve stick. If your pilot light goes out, we can help you light it safely. PLEASE USE EXTREME CAUTION WHEN TRYING TO LIGHT YOUR OWN PILOT LIGHT OR LEAVE IT TO THE PROFESSIONALS AT FRED GLINKE. If you are having an issue with your water heater, count on Fred Glinke to assist you with you with all of your repair and replacement needs.
