Today most hot water heaters have a life expectancy of about 8 to 12 years. That varies with the location and design of the unit, quality of installation, maintenance schedule and water quality. Most water heaters have a manufacturer’s warranty that will cover your unit if it fails before the expiration date.
Why does a water heater tank fail?
Sometimes components such as the thermostat, gas control value or heating coils fail. These parts can often be replaced without replacing the water heater. But the most common cause of water heater failure is a leak in the storage tank. Leaking usually occurs because of corrosion. Once this fails, the unit needs to be replaced. The cause of corrosion can be caused by hard water, rust and sediment settling at the bottom of the unit.
