The typical life expectancy of a water heater is about 8-12 years depending on brand and mineral make up of the water. I recently replaced a water heater in Quail Creek, Mandeville La, due to being old and inefficient. If your water heater is hitting its life expectancy you may want to replace it with a more energy efficient one. Also, if your water heater is leaking in any way it will need to be replaced sooner than later to spare further repairs to your home. If you have any questions about your water heater call us we can tell you if it needs replacement or repair. If you are looking to have a new water heater installed we can have you up and running the same day.
