Water Heater Repair Lake Charles BeaumontIf you own a home in Beaumont or Lake Charles, odds are you’ve at least thought about having to replace your water heater in the future. One of the most common questions we get at Roto-Rooter of Lake Charles, Inc. is “How long to water heaters last?”

In this article, we’ll look at the normal lifespan of conventional and tankless water heaters, and what to do when your water heater is ready to be replaced.

Conventional Water Heater

This type of water heater has traditionally been the most popular in Beaumont and Lake Charles homes, but has lost some popularity recently due to its size. A conventional water heater takes up a great deal of space in the home. These conventional heater typically only last for about 11 years before you need to replace it or invest in a good deal of water heater repair.

This is still only an estimate. The lifespan varies with the location and design of the unit, quality of installation, maintenance schedule, and water quality as well.

Tankless Water Heater

The other type of water heater many households in the Beaumont and Lake Charles-area are choosing recently is the tankless model of water heater. This water heater takes a significantly smaller amount of space to house it. Another major plus is that it can produce hot water at a faster rate.

Other reasons that homeowners are beginning to choose a tankless water heater more frequently include:

  • A lifespan of 15 years or longer
  • Potential to decrease your energy bill by as much as 30%
