How To Know When it is Time for a Hot Water System Repair
Whether you have an electric hot water heater or a gas hot water heater, all hot water heaters have a lifespan. Most hot water heaters continue functionally just fine until the age of around ten years.
Hot water heaters older than ten years are generally worth replacing with a brand new hot water heater as they are near the end of their serviceable life. However, a hot water heater repair job can generally rectify any issue with a newer system without requiring an entire replacement.

How You Can Prolong The Lifespan Of Your Hot Water Heater
Preserving and maintaining your hot water heater yourself is free, and it reduces the likelihood of needing extensive hot water heater repairs in the future.
You can flush your hot water system twice a year:
- Turn off the hot water heater and shutoff valve for the hot water pipe.
- Release the airflow by opening your hot taps so that it doesn’t create a vacuum.
- Connect a garden hose to the drain valve and flush the water down the drain or position the spout on the grass outside.
- Check that the hot water system’s pressure relief valve is working – if it is, it should make the water flow faster.
- Inspect the water for any sediment particles.
If you have a gas hot water heater, inspect the burner for defects such as flame rollout, burn marks, improper flame colour, uneven flame, or noises once a year.
