This is a good question and one that we get pretty often. Water heaters come in all shapes and sizes so there’s bound to be a bit of variance when it comes to their lifespans.
However, there is also a lot of misinformation out there, and you might have neighbors or coworkers that tell you about their “25-year-old water heater that’s still working just fine.” Unfortunately, no water heater is going to last that long without some serious concerns.
But how long is a water heater supposed to last? Is getting your water heater replaced soon a good idea, or should you just save money for water heater services in Boynton Beach, FL?
We can’t really give you specific advice until we get a closer look at your system, but we can give you some general tips on when to replace your water heater, and when it might just need a quick fix.
