Here are some tips for caring for your water heater:

  • Don't place flammable items near the water heater (i.e., rags or clothing items)
  • Never place anything on top of the water heater
  • Flush your water heater at least once per year 
  • Make sure your water heater is set to an appropriate temperature

When to Replace Your Water Heater

Knowing when it’s time to replace your water heater is crucial in preventing any unexpected emergencies or breakdowns. The average lifespan of a water heater is 8 – 12 years for a conventional water heater and 10 – 15 years for a tankless model. However, this lifespan can be impacted by a few factors such as the quality of installation, the make and model, and maintenance. 

Here are some signs that indicate it may be time to consider replacing your water heater:

  • Old age: If your water heater is over 10 years old, it may be time to consider a replacement. Older systems are more prone to inefficiency and potential malfunctions. 
  • Declining performance: If you notice a decrease in the hot water supply, longer heating times, inconsistent temperatures, or frequent repairs, your unit may be nearing the end of its lifespan.
  • High energy bills: An aging or inefficient water heater may consume more energy to heat the water, resulting in higher utility bills.
  • Frequent repairs: If you’ve paid for multiple repairs in recent years, your system is likely on its way out the door.
