Quality Water Heater Installations in Fort Mill, Charlotte, & the Surrounding Areas

Over time, water heaters eventually grow old and wear out. When they do, they need to be replaced as soon as possible, because some serious repercussions may happen if you don’t. Old water heaters not only waste a ton of energy (meaning you waste a ton of money running them), but they’re also prone to a number of issues, including leaks that can cause injury or even damage your home. Leaking tanks have been known to cause mold and mildew growth, ruin drywall, damage flooring, and even cause foundation issues in some cases.

When Should I Replace My Water Heater?

When you contact us for any water heater issues, you can trust that we will do everything we can to get your equipment working again. However, it’s also important to note that some water heater problems may be an indication that the equipment is already down to its last leg and needs to be replaced. While a repair may seem like a more budget-friendly option in some cases, they sometimes only delay the inevitable. When your water heater has worn out, repairs will only temporarily solve problems, and more will appear soon, resulting in the need for even more repairs.

How Long Do Water Heaters Last?

On average, a traditional tank water heater will last anywhere from 6 to 12 years. Replacements are typically necessary somewhere between years 8 and 10. This is the timeframe when problems with the water heater become regular and it starts to show it's age. Proper maintenance and regular cleaning of the system does extend the lifespan and allow water heaters to last for years. It is rare, but it is possible for a traditional water heater to last upwards of 15 years without needing a replacement.

Should You Replace a Leaking Water Heater?

A leaking water heater tank is by far the most dangerous problem. Leaks, as mentioned, can cause all sorts of issues for your home, and they need to be dealt with swiftly. However, water heater leaks are often extremely difficult and costly to repair, and usually only solve the issue temporarily. Usually, leaks are a sign that even more leaks are also forming, and before long they’ll start to allow water to seep out of your tank as well. That’s why our plumbing team will always advise simply replacing a leaking tank—it’s better to replace your tank outright than attempt a repair that will likely have lasting repercussions on the unit itself.

How To Extend Water Heater Life Expectancy?


Extending the life expectancy of your water heater can save you money and hassle in the long run. Here are some tips to help you do just that:

  • Regular Maintenance: Flushing the tank annually to remove sediment buildup and checking the pressure relief valve are crucial.
  • Install a Water Softener: Especially if you live in an area with hard water, as it can cause mineral buildup and reduce efficiency.
  • Insulate Your Tank: This helps reduce heat loss, easing the workload on your heater.
  • Lower the Temperature: Set your heater to around 120°F (49°C) to save energy and reduce wear.
  • Check Anode Rod: Annually inspect and replace the anode rod if necessary to prevent corrosion.
  • Keep the Area Around the Heater Clear: Ensure proper ventilation by keeping the space around your heater clutter-free.
  • Address Leaks Promptly: Early detection and repair of leaks can prevent major issues down the line.
  • Consider a Tankless Water Heater: They typically have longer lifespans due to reduced risk of corrosion and leaks.

By following these tips, you can help extend the life expectancy of your water heater and ensure it continues to provide you with reliable hot water for years to come.
