Your water heater is an integral part of your daily life, providing hot water for showers, cleaning dishes, washing clothes, and more. But over time, your water heater will experience extensive wear and tear, which can lead to everything from minor repairs to complete breakdowns.
Traditional water heater systems have a typical lifespan of 10-15 years, and if your system is nearing the end of its lifespan or continuously needs repairs, it may be time to consider water heater replacement. Below are some helpful tips on how to determine if hot water replacement is the most cost-effective and advantageous option for you.

Tankless vs. Traditional—Which Is Best for You?
It’s important to understand the differences between these two types of water heaters. Traditional systems store and preheat anywhere from 30-50 gallons of water inside the tank. This preheated water remains on standby until needed. You can expect a lower initial installation cost and traditional water heaters have a relatively straightforward installation process.
A tankless water heater uses a specific heat source—either electric or gas—to heat water as it is needed instead of storing the water in a tank. The advantages of a tankless water heater include:
- Longer lifespan when compared to a traditional system
- Increased energy efficiency
- Lower energy costs
Additionally, a tankless water heater is smaller in size and designed to take up significantly less space than a traditional water heater system needs. This gives you a wider range of location choices when determining where to install your new tankless system.
