Water heaters can last quite a long time, especially if they are properly taken care of. No matter how well you take care of your water heater, though, you won't be able to make it last indefinitely. Sooner or later, there will come a time when you need to replace your system. It's important that you be able to recognize when that time is approaching. Otherwise, you may suddenly find yourself without hot water, and that's no fun. Let's take a look at some of the signs that you need to replace your water heater.
If you put enough demand on your water heater, any water heater, you will eventually exhaust it and have to wait for more water to be heated. The older a heat pump gets, though the more worn out it becomes. This causes the system to become less and less efficient. If your water heater can't even cope with a moderate amount of demand, you probably need to replace it.
Every system needs repairs every once in a while, even if it's relatively new. As a water heater gets closer to the end if it's life, though, it will start to develop more and more problems. If you need to repair your water heater every few months, you need to install a new one.
Water heaters are manufactured to last around 10-15 years. You can make your system last longer than that, if you are willing to spend the money and effort for it. However, it's honestly far more effective just to replace it. Talk to a professional about replacing your water heater if it's older than 15 years.
