A conventional water heater should last about 11 years, tank-less heaters have a life expectancy of 15-20 years. Hard water will shorten the life, regular maintenance will prolong it.
Tank-less heaters are considered more energy efficient than conventional heaters because they don’t have to continually heat a tank of water. Tank-less heaters heat water instantly whenever a hot water tap is opened. But not all conventional heaters are created equally. Bradford White is the recommended and preferred water heater for Rossman Plumbing.
Is your water heater too hot?
To reduce the risk of scalding and to avoid the risk of running out of hot water, Rossman Plumbing recommends a temperature setting of 120Â°-125Â° F.
Always keep safety in mind when it comes to water heaters. Never store paints, solvents or combustibles near the unit due to the obvious risk of fire.
