On average, most water heaters last between 8 and 12 years but some can last up to 20 years with regular maintenance.
Types of Water Heaters
There are two types of water heaters that work for most households: conventional tank water heaters and tankless water heaters.
The most common, of course, is a conventional water heater. Each type of water heater is either powered by gas or electricity. Conventional tank water heaters are the most common type of water heater in use today. They store hot water in a tank and keep it hot until you are ready to use it. We currently only service and install conventional water heaters.
When to Replace Your Hot Water Heater
All water heaters should be maintained, drained yearly, and inspected for any leaks or corrosion, or other signs of failures. Eventually, though, all water heaters will need to be replaced. If you are not sure when to replace your water heater, here are a few signs to look out for, such as:
Strange noises, like crackling or popping
Lukewarm water, or running out
Higher energy bills
Signs of rust or corrosion
If you notice any of these signs, it is time to call a professional for a checkup! They can help guide and determine when you will need to start shopping for a new water heater.
WHAT IS THE GOING RATE TO REPLACE YOUR WATER HEATER?
If your water heater is starting to show signs of age, it is probably time to start shopping for a new one. Don’t wait until it completely breaks down before replacing it, or you could be left without hot water for days. The average cost to replace a conventional water heater is $2,000 to $4,000 and a tankless water heater installation can be between $4,500 to $6,500. For most, this is a big ticket item! We accept Visa, Mastercard, and American Express. We also offer financing through Synchrony Financial.

How much should you expect to pay to replace your water heater? That depends on many factors such as the gallon size -- 30, 40, 50, or even 80 gallons tanks are available in residential applications. Is it gas or electric? What brand is chosen? A-Quality typically will install a Custom Drain Pan under the new water heater, especially if it is sitting on a drywall platform. This will protect your home in the event of a water leak. A-Quality to will then replace the water supply inlet valve or gate valve with a new "ball type" shut off valve. Install new hot and cold water supply lines, re-pipe the pressure relief drain line. and exhaust vent. Last, but not least, we will haul off your old tank for disposal.
