What is the life expectancy of a tank water heater?
Replacing appliances can be either daunting or gratifying, or both. When the need to replace a major appliance, like a tank water heater, arises it’s best to take care of it prior to them malfunctioning or failing. The typical life span of a tank water heater is between 8-10 years, however, it may be recommended to replace it prior to then. One thing is for sure, you do not want to replace a tank water heater unexpectedly. Residential tank water heaters can hold between 30-80 gallons of water, depending on how many people live in the residence. Can you imagine the catastrophe that amount of water can cause in your home should your water heater go out?
