What is a water heater?
A water heater is a unit installed in a property that uses a source of energy from gas to electricity to heat water above its initial temperature. This water is then sent to areas of the home such as the laundry room, kitchen, bathrooms, and can even be used for space heating. Hot water heaters are very versatile and can be fitted to any home specification and need.
Tankless Water Heaters
Tankless hot water heaters are unique in that they were made to solve the problem of energy overuse and tank degradation over time. Without a tank, you won’t have to worry about tank corrosion, build-up, or leaks that could contaminate water supplies. What’s more, the energy used to maintain a tank is now eliminated so you are left with a more energy-efficient unit. Tankless water heaters are instant hot water heaters so you also won’t have to wait for hot water to heat up with a tank. You’ll get hot water distribution instantly to multiple areas of the house at once if necessary. Without the tank, these units are more compact and can be placed anywhere, even inside bathrooms. They are able to come in various capacity size options to match with the number of occupants in a home or the size of the property. Although these units don’t have a tank and won’t require tank maintenance, they should still be periodically maintained to ensure smooth operations.
What happens if you don’t flush your water heater?
If you don’t regularly flush your hot water heater as needed, you may find sediment blocking or clogging the pressure and relief valve (which is essential in keeping the water heater from exploding.) You’ll also find water heaters wearing or corroding more quickly.
How often should water heater be replaced?
A majority of tank water heaters last anywhere from 8-10 years and once it gets closer to that time you’ll start to see your water heater perform oddly. Therefore, you may actually need to replace your water heater before the timeline ends in order to avoid discrepancies.
Can a water heater last 30 years?
The lifespan of tankless water heaters is longer than with tank units as they average a 20-year lifespan. If properly maintained, they will be able to last for up to 30 years. Although tankless units can still corrode over time, it happens much more slowly than with tank units.
