Is it Time for a New Hot Water Heater?

Here are some ways to determine if you should replace your hot water heater.


Start here. Most tank style hot water heaters will last somewhere between 8-12 years…IF you perform proper annual maintenance on them. Let me guess. You didn’t even know that your hot water heater even needed annual maintenance. At any rate, if your tank is older than about 10 years, it is likely on its last legs in terms of performance and efficiency, and a replacement should be considered. If you have a tankless hot water heater, then you should have about 20 years.


Tank style water heaters are notorious energy vampires. Some estimates put their energy waste as high as 50%! As they get older, they will likely begin to lose efficiency. It may take more energy to heat the water up, which means more money. If your bill is suddenly higher, then consider that your hot water heater is the culprit.


If you tank is looking a little beat up on the outside, then you should really worry about what it looks like on the inside. Meaning, fittings look corroded, or there are small leaks. Wires are frayed or exposed. If there is that kind of damage on the outside, then it is much worse on the inside. The risk you run at that point is total tank failure which results in a massive leak that will flood your garage or utility room. Leaks are a HUGE red flag of impending failure and should be addressed IMMEDIATELY. Other indications of build up and damage is hearing a knocking sound, or gurgling, from the water heater. Finally, you may notice your water has a tinged color to it. This is another direct indication of damage that needs to be addressed. switch to a tankless water heater


This is sort of the big, obvious one. No hot water? Or hot water not lasting? It doesn’t necessarily mean your tank needs to be replaced. However, it does indicate that it needs a professional inspection to test the thermostat, heating element, and other important components.
