Hot Water Heater Installation

HOW DO I KNOW I NEED A NEW HOT WATER HEATER?

The typical lifespan of a water heater is 10 to 12 years. For electric water heaters, the heating element inside the tank can eventually corrode causing significant loss of heating. For gas water heaters, the heating components can eventually become inefficient and require a replacement. We recommend new hot water heaters because it doesn’t make sense to spend money on something that is past its prime and may need repair again in the near future.
