What is the Average Life of a Water Heater?
After having serviced water heaters from a variety of brands, our team sees the average lifespan of a water heater to be anywhere from 7 to 13 years. The time your water heater lasts will depend on how much you use your unit, along with how often you got regular maintenance. Having regular AC maintenance done will help it stay in working condition much longer.
Who to Call For Water Heater Repair & Installation
We know there’s a lot of options when it comes to who fixes water heaters. Generally, a licensed plumber will give you the most reliable results for a reasonable price. In fact, in California, in order to even legally provide a water heater repair totaling more than $500 for materials, labor, and other costs, a plumber needs to have proper licensing.
The same qualifications apply to someone replacing your water heater as well.
There are some instances where you may need an electrician instead of a plumber, such as continuously tripping breakers, but it’s usually a plumbing issue.

A water heater operates in one of a couple of ways, depending on the type of water heating system you’re using. The most common type of water heating system is the traditional storage water heater. This works by storing heated water in a tank.
Once the homeowner turns on the “hot” tap, the already heated water gets used. This is different from a tankless model, which heats the water directly with no need for storage. The type of water heater you want will ultimately depend on your needs.
Opt for a traditional storage heater if:
- You care about affordability: The traditional water heater is a popular choice in part because it’s cheaper to buy and install than a tankless model.
- You use hot water for multiple tasks: Tankless models sometimes struggle to heat water for multiple things at once.
- You worry about repair costs: As with installation, a traditional water heater will usually be less expensive to repair and maintain.
Go for a tankless water heater if:
- You want energy efficiency: The tankless model only heats water as you need it.
- You don’t want to waste water: Sometimes you can stand for minutes waiting for the water to get hot enough. That can add up to a lot of wasted water over time.
- You care about long-term savings: While a tankless model might cost more than the traditional model in the short term, it’s possible that these water heaters will save money by reducing energy and water waste, and contributing to lower energy costs in the long-term.
If you’re not sure what type of water heater to go with, receive our honest, professional opinion. We’ll ask about your needs and budget and help you choose the set up that’s right for your home or business.
