New water heaters are far more energy-efficient than older models.
Did you know water heaters are the second-highest source of energy usage in most homes? Water heaters typically account for about 15 to 25% of your monthly energy bill.
Water heater replacement depends on age, condition, and budget. Most water heaters typically last 10 to 15 years, and they can fail without warning. However, if your water heater is only a few years old, repair may be the way to go. The plus side, though, is new water heaters are far more energy-efficient than older models.
Whether you repair or replace, water heaters will perform better and last longer if you flush the tank once a year to remove sediment. Build-up of sediment will cause issues with your water heater. Over time, water minerals react with steel, corroding water heater tanks. When water heaters spring a leak, repair isn’t an option.
