Frequently Asked Water Heater Questions
How Long Does a Water Heater Last?
Generally speaking, most traditional tank-style water heaters last for 8-12 years before needing to be replaced. Of course, this number largely depends on the type of unit and its overall efficiency. For example, savings from improved energy efficiency may enable a newer water heater to outlast older units by 1-2 years. Furthermore, preventive maintenance measures like flushing the tank and having the unit inspected annually can extend its service life by up to 5 additional years.
How Long Should a Water Heater Take to Heat Up?
It varies. A brand new, electric, 40-gallon tank water heater will take approximately an hour to heat new water once it runs out. Gas-powered water heaters take a little bit less time, about 30 to 40 minutes. Having to wait longer than this can indicate you need a replacement.
How Long Should Hot Water Last in a Shower?
A 40-gallon tank water heater, if used continuously, will produce about an hour’s worth of showers. In newer units this can be up to two hours. It also depends on how much colder water you are mixing with the hot water. Taking hotter showers will, of course, shorten your showering time.
