How Long Do Water Heater Units Usually Last? (Hint: a reputable water heater service like Fred Glinke will be able to tell)

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?  (when you call Fred Glinke for water heater service, we will tell you).

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. Knowing your water heaters age can help determine if it may need to be replaced or not. Many times older units must be scrapped. Many of the newer models however can be repaired for the most part.
If you have an older water heater which is leaking from the bottom, it is almost always a sign that you're in need of a new one.  This usually is not repairable unless coming from the pipes going in.
The best and only thing to do with older water heaters unfortunately is to replace them. This may seem like a big investment, but if you select the right one, it can easily pay for itself over time. Leaking water heaters can really take their toll on your utility bills and wind up costing you a lot of uneccessary money. Furthermore, the older they are, the more likely the disaster they are waiting to happen.

When the seal breaks you could easily have at least 40 gallons or more of pouring uncontrollably into water in to your home. What is even worse is that it could happen when you least expect it.  Left undetected, these leaks can cause thousands and thousands of dollars in unwanted damage to your home or office, including mold. Therefore it is almost always a best practice and far more cost effective to replace your old, leaky water heater with a newer and more efficient one. Here is some useful information in case you have a water heater leak.

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, our HVAC technicians can help you light it safely.  WARNING: ALWAYS USE EXTREME CAUTION WHEN TRYING TO LIGHT YOUR OWN PILOT LIGHT OR LEAVE IT TO THE PROFESSIONALS AT FRED GLINKE.
