Water heaters are expected to have a useable life of 8-12 years, but some last much longer and others quite a bit shorter. How do you know if yours needs to be replaced? Several signs could indicate your water heater may not be working correctly. Water buildup in or around your water heater, water quality issues, a reduction in the supply of hot water, or a change in temperature (either much hotter or much cooler) can all be signs it’s time for a repair or replacement. An in-home inspection by a Sure Temp technician can determine whether or not you need to install a new water heater.
Today’s water heaters are designed to require little to no maintenance by home owners. Once installed, most homeowners don’t think about their water heater until there’s a problem.
