What’s Inside Your Water Heater?

Like your HVAC system, your water heater is one of the most used appliances in your home. It constantly keeps a supply of water heated and ready to use at a moment’s notice.

How long can I expect my water heater to last?

With daily use, your water heater will begin to break down over time and will eventually need to be replaced. The average lifespan of a water heater is 8-12 years.

So, how do you know if your water heater needs to be replaced?

  • Less hot water available during use.

  • No hot water at all.

  • You notice water leaking around the floor near your water heater.

  • Crackling noise when the water is heating.
