No one likes cold showers! That’s why water heaters are one of the most essential appliances in every home. Do you know how old your water heater is? Standard tanked water heaters last an average of 10-12 years. Waiting to replace an aging water heater increases the risk of expensive water damage. If your water heater is over 8 years old and you are experiencing one of the issues listed, it’s usually more cost effective to replace your water heater rather than repair it.

Signs of an Aging Water Heater

  • Rust
  • Strange noises
  • Failure to heat water adequately
  • Leaking
  • Water suddenly too hot or too cold
