How Long Does A Hot Water Heater Last?

The lifespan of a hot water heater depends on a number of factors, including the type of water heater and how well it is maintained. With proper maintenance, a conventional hot water tank generally lasts about 8 to 12 years, while a tankless water heater can last upwards of 15 to 20 years.

Whatever type of water heater you have, booking annual maintenance appointments and addressing any issues quickly will help to lengthen its lifespan. Trust our team of skilled professionals for all your maintenance and repair needs.

Tankless water heaters are designed to require minimal repairs, but when something does go wrong it is important to hire a specialized plumber who has experience and training working with tankless models.

What are Signs of a Failing Hot Water Heater?

Not sure if your hot water heater needs repairs? Watch for these signs and get minor problems fixed before they become a major issue. 

One of the most common signs of a failing water heater is the presence of water pooling around the unit. Leaks can occur due to corrosion or cracks in the tank, and they should never be ignored–even when they seem very minor. Even a small leak will likely worsen over time and could cause significant water damage to your home down the road. If you notice any leakage, call a professional immediately to inspect and repair the problem.

If you suddenly find that your hot water isn’t as hot as it used to be, or if it takes longer to reach the desired temperature, this is a telltale sign your water heater needs to be repaired. This could be due to a variety of issues, such as a malfunctioning thermostat, a buildup of sediment in the tank, or a failing heating element. A technician can diagnose the problem and recommend the best solution.

Inconsistent hot water temperature, where it fluctuates between hot and cold or cannot maintain a consistent temperature, is a sure sign of an ailing water heater. This can be caused by problems with the thermostat, heating elements, or mineral buildup within the tank. It not only affects your comfort but also indicates that your system is not functioning efficiently, so you might also see a spike in your energy bill when this happens.

A noticeable drop in hot water pressure can indicate issues with your water heater. Sediment buildup in the tank or a failing pressure relief valve can impede water flow, resulting in a decrease in pressure. Our technicians at Vision Plumbing Heating Cooling can determine the source of the pressure drop and restore your water pressure to normal levels.

If you hear strange noises, such as popping, crackling, or banging, emanating from your water heater, it’s a sign that something is wrong. These noises are often caused by the heating element struggling to function due to sediment buildup, which leads to inefficient heating and potential damage to the tank. Ignoring these sounds can result in more significant issues down the line, so it’s advisable to have your water heater checked by a technician as quickly as you can.

Paying attention to these signs of a failing water heater can help you address problems early, preventing costly damage and ensuring that you have a reliable source of hot water in your home. Regular maintenance and timely repairs are essential to extending the lifespan of your water heater and maintaining its efficiency.

Highly recommend this company. After contacting numerous plumbing companies, and having a couple no-shows and getting the run around, I reached out to Vision Plumbing Heating Cooling. The booking process was easy, they showed up on time, and Esteban (the technician) was very friendly, knowledgeable, and thorough. I will certainly use this company again, should I need them in the future.

I used vission plumbing for few jobs in my house. Vision plumbing team is awesome. The house is old and I had to change and fix many things, from changing pipes to fixing bath overflow and installing dishwasher. Vision team helped me with all that. I had hired, unfortunately, another company (Bee's knees plumbing and heating) to install furnace and they did so wrong that I had flood in my basement for a month. I called again Dave, they came, found problem and fixed everything for me. I am definitely taking this company for any future jobs that I will have in the house. I trust them and I know I won't have any problems after they leave. Dave is amazing. For any issue he explained me what is going on and how they can fix that. Every worker from vision was very profesional and respectful. Great job vision team!!!

Problem solved quickly and then offered to do another small job because of minimum one hour charge. That is extraordinary.

Contacted with them and had responses right away. Had choice of 7am!! Or 3 pm and picked 7pm. Tech: Esteban showed up on time, fixed the problem. Explained about his work and cost. Employing good employees must be good company. They also do commercial work, they did some of the work at my restaurant and again I had no issue at all and did great job!! Highly recommended!!

I have used Vision Plumbing Heating Cooling twice in the last six months, once to fix the condenser on the A/C and today to fix the furnace. They are a very responsive and professional company. I arrived home a few nights ago to find the house was an ice box as the furnace was not working. I called Vision the next day and within 24hrs they had a technician on site. His name was Jeff and he was a pleasure to deal with. He removed the motor on the furnace and showed me the source of the problem - two birds had gotten in through the exhaust vent and clogged the system so it shut itself down. He cleaned out the motor, reinstalled it and answered all of my questions. The charges were very reasonable for an hour of time spent at our home to fix the issue. I had a similar great experience with their technician in the summer time. I used Vision Plumbing Heating Cooling as prior to them I had used one of their competitors, Border Plumbing, and the experience was brutal. They sent a technician to diagnose a noisy water pipe in our mechanical room. The tech was onsite for 25min and he told me the problem was in the irrigation line, which I already knew. Then he was done and I got a bill for twice as much as what Vision charged, but Vision actually spent an hour to fix something. Border told me after the first 15min the price goes up, and in response to the negative review I wrote, they said that the technician had to drive for ~50min to get to our place, so they allocated one hour and 17 minutes to the service call, hence the charge. Jeff from Vision had to drive to our place in Kelowna from West Kelowna, spent an hour at the house, fixed a real issue with our furnace, and Vision charged half as much. Use Vision.

We had work done on our plumbing manifolds and most valves in our house . Although Vision Plumbing Heating Cooling were the most second most expensive of the four plumbing quotes we chose them. Michelle was terrific to deal with in the phone being very professional and friendly. On the day of the work Alex and Keenan arrived on time. Both were professional and courteous. They were very helpful and ensured we understood the work being performed and answered all of our questions. I give this company 5/5 for their service performed and I would hire them again. Thank You.Rick & Val MarshinewKelowna, BC

I had a plumbing emergency spring up overnight and had to shut off the water supply to the house. They were able to make room for me in their busy schedule the next day and made the repairs I needed in a quick and timely manner. I would recommend Vision Plumbing Heating Cooling to anyone seeking plumbing services, in fact l am going to call them up for a larger job I've been planning for next year.
