At about 11%, your water heater is usually a home’s the second largest energy consuming appliance. An old one, operating at lower efficiency, costs even more to run. Does yours need service or replacement? Here’s what you need to know about tank water heaters.
How tank water heaters work
Tank water heaters store between 20 to 120 gallons of water kept heated most often by natural gas or electric. Which is right for you?
Tank water heater replacement
On average, a tank water heater will last about 12 years. If yours is older, replacement may be a more cost-effective option. Keep in mind, lower-priced water heaters are often the least efficient, making them more expensive to operate and maintain over time.
