A Typical Lifespan
Conventional water heaters usually last 6-12 years, but several factors can affect their lifespan. People often forget about their water heaters until something breaks. We can repair some issues, but many times the problem is caused by the interior tank rusting out. We cannot replace the inside tank, so you may need to get a new water heater. Also, if your unit is near the end of its life expectancy, it may be more cost effective to go ahead and purchase a new one. If the water heater is fairly new, you may want to repair it if possible.
Many times, a leak from the bottom of your water heater means that the interior tank is rusted out. Unfortunately, it is not possible to repair the interior tank, and it is time to purchase a new water heater.
