When to replace your water heaterPosted by plumbingpros in Home Improvement Tips, on November 2, 2015
Water heaters are an energy intensive appliance. They are the second largest energy user in the home, and as they age they become less efficient, requiring even more energy.
The Handyguys estimate the average water heater needs to be replaced every 10 to 12 years. However, just because your water heater is a decade old doesn’t mean it’s ready to be replaced. A new quiz on KnowYourWaterHeater.com helps homeowners decide if and when they should pull the plug on their current water heater.
Take the water heating quiz at KnowYourWaterHeater.com to calculate when you should replace your water heater. The website also includes information on new NAECA standards and the benefits of gas-powered water heaters.
