Tank-style water heaters last between eight and 12 years under normal use. Many tank water heaters come with a warranty that covers installation, parts, and functionality over various periods of time. The warranty is dependent on the heater manufacturer and/or the retailer. Tankless water heaters are not only more energy-efficient, but they also have a longer life expectancy and may come with a longer warranty. So how do you know when it is time to start searching for a new water heater?
Subtle Signals From Your Tank Water Heater
Your traditional tank water heater may already be letting you know that it is on its last legs. Here are some indications you may need a new water heater:
