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.

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.
