Most homeowners wait too late before they replace their hot water heater. An old, leaky tank can cause damage to your home and pricey repairs. Even if you have homeowner’s insurance to pick up the tab, you still will need to pay your deductible, live with the destruction, and sometimes lose invaluable items forever.
You can avoid many of these problems by getting your tank inspected annually and consider replacing the tank once it is 6 – 8 years old. Hot water tanks do not last the lifetime of your home. Plus, new tanks have many benefits over old hot water heaters including that they are more efficient, have better hot water recovery rates, and the tankless hot water heaters take up less space.
