Water Heater Life Expectancy
A conventional water heater should last about 11 years, tankless heaters have a life expectancy of 15-20 years. Hard water will shorten the life, regular maintenance will prolong it.
Water Heater Efficiency
Tankless heaters are considered more energy efficient than conventional heaters because they don’t have to continually heat a tank of water. Tankless heaters heat water instantly whenever a hot water tap is opened. But not all conventional heaters are created equally. The most heavily insulated models like the Marathon® brand rival tankless heaters for efficiency and require no special modifications to your power supply, gas lines or ventilation.
Is your water heater too hot?
To reduce the risk of scalding and to avoid the risk of running out of hot water, most plumbing companies, including SG Rooter recommend a temperature setting of 120°-125° F.
Water Heater Safety
Always keep safety in mind when it comes to water heaters. Never store paints, solvents or combustibles near the unit due to the obvious risk of fire.
