Life Expectancy of Water Heater
Whenever your home’s water heater becomes out of date and fails to fulfill its function, you will need to replace it. When shopping for a new water heater, many people’s first question is, “how long can I expect my water heater to last?”


The average life expectancy of a water heater is somewhere between 8 to 10 years. While this is just the average amount of time you can expect your water heater to last, if you are having issues with your water heater may need to be replaced sooner. If you pick an energy efficient, highly rated model that you take care of, it has the potential to outlive this expectancy.


If you are unsure if your water heater is in need of a replacement, listed below are the most common signs your water heater is in need of a replacement:

Rust Steel : While it is true that steel is an incredibly strong material, it is vulnerable to developing rust. Once corrosion begins impacting your home’s steel surfaces, it will spread quickly. The rust will then begin eating through the surface of the steel. Unfortunately, rust is a serious problem that will need immediate attention in order to stop it from spreading and keep it from contaminating your home’s water supply.


Noisy: Your water heater should not become suddenly more noisy. If you notice any new or unusual noises that become louder, this may be a sign that mineral sediment has built up inside of the wall’s of your water heater. This is a serious issue because not only will it make your water heater less efficient, it will also age the heater at a more rapid pace. At Red Lion Plumbing we can determine if you need to flush your heater or replace it with an inspection.
