When Should You Replace Your Water Heater?
Although our experienced plumbers will always try to perform repairs, sometimes a replacement is a more feasible option.
When we arrive at your property, our Temecula water heater installation experts will first perform a full inspection of your current unit to determine whether it is salvageable or a new unit would serve you better.
We generally recommend replacing your unit when:
- It is more than 8 years old: The average lifespan of a water heater is between 8 to 12 years. The older it gets, the less efficient it will be and the more wear and tear it will experience.
- It has caused your energy bills to increase: As units age, their ability to efficiently heat your water and meet your property’s demands decreases, which makes them work harder to keep up. In turn, your monthly bills will increase.
- It has a defective pilot light: Anytime you are constantly calling our team to re-light your pilot light, it’s a sure sign that it’s time to replace your unit.
- It is leaking: A leaking water heater can lead to such costly repairs that it might make more financial sense to just replace the unit altogether.
- It is constantly needing repairs: If your water heater is constantly being repaired, these things add up and eventually it will be more cost-efficient to get an entirely new unit.
What Is The Expected Lifespan of a Water Heater?
The expected lifespan of a water heater can vary depending on factors such as the type of water heater, maintenance, water quality, and usage patterns.
On average, here are the typical lifespans for different types of water heaters:
Traditional Storage Tank Water Heater:
- Gas: 10-15 years
- Electric: 10-15 years
Tankless (On-Demand) Water Heater:
- Gas: 20+ years
- Electric: 20+ years
Heat Pump Water Heater:
- 10-15 years
Solar Water Heater:
- Solar collectors: 20+ years
- Storage tank: 10-15 years
It's important to note that these are average estimates, and individual cases may vary. The lifespan of a water heater can be extended with proper maintenance and water quality management. Regular flushing, checking for leaks, and replacing sacrificial anode rods (if applicable) can help prolong the life of a water heater.
Water quality also plays a significant role. If your water has a high mineral content or is prone to sediment buildup, it can shorten the lifespan of the heater. Installing a water softener orfiltration system can help mitigate these issues.
Ultimately, keeping an eye on the condition of your water heater and addressing any maintenance or repair needs promptly can help you maximize its lifespan. When it comes to replacement, it's a good idea to consider energy efficiency and technology advancements that may have emerged since your current water heater was installed.
How Long Does it Take to Install a New Water Heater?
The time it takes to install a new water heater in a typical Temecula home can vary depending on different factors, such as the type of water heater, the plumbing situation, and the complexity of the installation. Usually, it takes around one to four hours to install a standard water heater.
However, if any extra plumbing work is needed or a tankless water heater is being installed, it may take longer. To get a more accurate idea of how long the installation process will take for your specific situation, it's best to talk to a licensed plumber and give them information about your home's plumbing and the type of water heater you want to install.
