What Is the Life Expectancy of a Water Heater?

Generally, conventional tank water heaters last for approximately 8 to 12 years. Whereas tankless models have the potential to last between 15 and 20 years, The lifespan of a water heater can differ based on several factors, including its type, the quality of installation, maintenance practices, and the characteristics of the local water supply.

Signs Your Water Heater Needs Repair

Knowing what to keep an eye or ear out for some common warning signs can help ensure that small issues don’t become major problems down the line.

Some warning signs your water heater needs repairs include:

  • Odd noises: Small popping or crackling noises can mean that sediment has built up in your water heater. If your system isn’t flushed regularly, this sediment can cause damage to the inside of your water heater over time.
  • Water pooling around the tank: Leaks can happen if the tank itself is cracked or if the fittings around your water heater have split. This will cause poor water pressure as well as inconsistent heating.
  • Inconsistent hot water: If your hot water supply runs out after only a few short minutes, or you're only able to get an unreliable supply of lukewarm water, it could mean your water heater is overworked. It either no longer meets your household's needs, has a damaged component that needs to be replaced, or it has reached the end of its lifespan.
