What’s Wrong With Your Water Heater?

It’s been awhile since you replaced your water heater and now you’re concerned about its well-being. The last time you replaced it, the weather was starting to get cold in your area and your water heater wasn’t heating at the temperature you would like. Your new water heater is having the same problem 10 years later. You have good reason to be concerned as the water heater is the most used appliance in majority of homes today! Most manufacturer’s suggested service life, the life expectancy of a water heater, is about 8 to 12 years. The longevity of a unit all depends on weather, unit design, quality of installation, and the level of maintenance it has received.
