How to Tell If You Need a New Water Heater:

  • Your water heater is 10+ years old
  • You have a low volume of hot water
  • Your heating bills are too high
  • Your water heater is constantly breaking down
  • There is visible corrosion on your water heater
  • Your hot water has a reddish tint to it

Choosing a New Water Heater

When we install a new water heater for a customer in Greenville, Spartanburg, or the surrounding areas, we always take care to help them choose a model that fits their needs, the size of their home, and their budget.  Choosing the right water heater is easy when you have all the information at your fingertips, which is what our technicians strive to provide at every stage in the process.

New water heaters are more energy efficient and reliable than older models. Tankless water heaters, for example, offer instant hot water that doesn’t run out. They are even better for your utility bill, using less energy than traditional tank heaters.

How Long Do Water Heaters Last?

Water heaters play a vital role in our homes, supplying the hot water we need for various activities, from showering to washing dishes. As homeowners, understanding the lifespan of a water heater is essential for planning maintenance and potential replacements. 

Here's some of the factors that go into a water heater's lifespan:

  • Type of Water Heater: Different types of water heaters have varying lifespans. Tankless water heaters typically last longer, often around 20-25 years, due to their on-demand heating and reduced exposure to corrosion. Traditional tank-based water heaters have a shorter lifespan, usually ranging from 10 to 15 years.
  • Quality of Installation: Proper installation by a qualified professional is crucial. A well-installed water heater is less likely to experience issues that could shorten its lifespan.
  • Water Quality: The quality of the water in your area can impact the lifespan of your water heater. Hard water, which contains high mineral content, can lead to sediment buildup and corrosion within the tank, potentially reducing its longevity.
  • Maintenance: Regular maintenance can significantly extend the lifespan of a water heater. Flushing the tank annually to remove sediment, checking and replacing the anode rod when needed, and ensuring all components are in good working condition can help keep the heater functioning optimally.
