When Do You Need to Replace a Water Heater?

As is the case with most mechanical systems, replacing the unit in a timely fashion can save you a ton of stress and unnecessary cost. That said, it can sometimes be difficult to tell when you should be scheduling water heater replacement over something simpler, like water heater repair. Our experts recommend replacing a water heater under these conditions:

  • Your current water heater is 10-15 years old – After roughly ten or more years of service, most water heaters begin to degrade rapidly in terms of efficiency and reliability. If your tank is older and failing to meet your needs, talk to our team about the potential benefits of replacement.
  • Your water heater does not meet your hot water needs – Perhaps your family has grown, or the previous installation was insufficient. Regardless, there’s no point in maintaining a tank that doesn’t meet your supply demand.
  • The water heater in your home demands repair frequently – A one-off repair is nothing to be too stressed over. However, if your water heater needs repair often, you’ll save money by replacing!
  • Your water heater leaks – Some more minor sources of leaking, such as a damaged valve, may simply be repaired. However, if the leaking is caused by a corroded tank, replacement becomes the better solution.

Water Heater Replacement FAQs

How long will my water heater last?

Most storage tank water heaters will last about 8 to 10 years with routine maintenance and service, though some high-quality models may last 15 years or longer. Tankless water heaters often last 20 to 25 years, but they also need proper maintenance to stay operating reliably.

How can I maximize the life span of my water heater?

Have it serviced at least once a year. This should include draining the sediment from the storage tank of conventional water heaters, or flushing the heat exchanger on tankless water heaters to remove mineral and sediment accumulations. Maintenance should also include inspecting the burners and flue on gas water heaters, testing the heating elements on electric water heaters, testing the thermostat, checking for leaks, and inspecting all electrical connections.

Should I repair or replace my water heater?

If your water heater is just a few years old and has no major issues like tank leaks or a damaged heat exchanger, water heater repairs are likely the best option. If your water heater is more than 10 years old, has started to leak, needs major repairs, or simply isn’t meeting your household hot water needs, a water heater replacement will be the best long-term solution.

Should I upgrade to a tankless water heater?

A tankless water heater can provide some real-world benefits for your Southeast Michigan home, but there are drawbacks, as well. A quality tankless water heater can provide an almost unlimited supply of hot water with proper installation, it has a smaller footprint than tank-based models, it can last up to twice as long, and it can reduce your utility costs. Conversely, a tankless water heater can encourage you to be less mindful of hot water usage, eliminating any savings, plus costly upgrades to your gas or electrical service may be necessary to provide the energy required for on-demand water heating. Our team at Robin Aire can help you decide which type of water heater is the best choice for your family.

Can I replace my water heater myself?

Replacing a water heater requires extensive experience with plumbing, electrical, and gas services, and it can be dangerous for those without the proper skills. Plus, many jurisdictions require a professional installation by a licensed plumber.
