Service and Maintenance

Life Expectancy of Water Heaters: An average water heater has a life expectancy of eight to fifteen years, depending on water usage, maintenance, and the quality/type of heater. Within their life span, water heaters may need repair.

Common Problems

Obvious indications of a faulty hot water heater or one that is not meeting your family’s demand for hot water include the following:

No hot water

When your home or office has no hot water, it is caused by one of these three issues in most cases:

  1. Electrical outage or NES blackout or general power outage
  2. Bad thermostat or thermostat starting to fail
  3. Failure of the heating element

Other factors should be considered. Leaks or blockages could also be involved, for instance. Be sure to tell your plumber which type and brand of heater you have, its age, and any other relevant information.

Not enough hot water

Running out of hot water is most likely caused by one of the following:

  1. Change in weather. When moving from fall to winter, in colder states, it is a good idea to turn up the water heater temperature.
  2. Hot and cold connection issues. Issues such as a broken dip tube can impact the water’s temperature. Have your plumber diagnose this one.
  3. Water heater can no longer meet your demand for hot water. You may need a larger unit or to purchase a hot water on demand or tankless system.
  4. The thermostat or heating element can be at fault here.
