- The type of water heater you need – traditional (tanked) or tankless
- The type of fuel source you prefer – between an electric unit and a gas system
- The size you need for your home
- The Energy Factor and energy-efficiency rating
- The installation and maintenance costs
- The costs
- The required maintenance on the unit
How Long Do Water Heaters Last?
When you need to purchase a new water heater or schedule a water heater replacement, you might immediately wonder how long your system will last. There are no guarantees for how long your unit will work. Fortunately, the experts at our hot water heater company can give you some estimates.
In general, most electric units will last between 10 to 20 years. Of course, this depends on a lot of factors. The amount of water heater maintenance that’s performed, and the quality of your water in your system can impact that timeline. If you have a gas-powered unit, it might not last quite as long as electric systems.
