Average Life Expectancy

A common question most homeowners have when dealing with a broken or poorly functioning water heater is, how long does a water heater usually last? They are typically trying to figure out if the water heater should be repaired, or if it’s time to purchase an entirely new unit.

In short, the average hot water heater will last somewhere in between 8 and 12 years. The location of the unit, daily demand, water quality, and maintenance history will play a large role in determining which end of the spectrum your unit falls on.

To answer this question with certainty, call on Tweedy Plumbing & Restoration to schedule a free, no-obligation estimate today. We will schedule a convenient time to come to your home, evaluate your unit, and provide you with a recommendation for repair or replacement. We will then provide you with a price for both options to allow you to choose the option that is right for your home, family, and budget.


Water heaters are the most used appliance in a modern household yet they are typically not thought about until they stop producing hot water on demand. Even in cases where water heaters are given attention, maintenanced regularly, and properly maintained, they will eventually have to be replaced. They simply are not designed to last forever. If you have found yourself stuck without hot water, wondering whether or not it is time to replace your unit or if a simple repair will solve the issue, we can help.

    Water Heater Repair FAQs

    Should I Repair Or Replace My Water Heater?

    Water heaters are one of the most important types of plumbing fixtures in a home. But like any heating appliance, water heaters can develop minor problems that turn into significant issues when left unaddressed. Since water heaters are so energy-intensive to run, upgrading to a more energy-efficient model can be more cost-effective than repairing an old unit.

    If you’re thinking about repairing or replacing your water heater, consider a few things before deciding. The primary factors to consider are the age of your water heater, the size of your home’s hot water demand, and the energy efficiency of your new unit. While repairing your water heater might be a cheaper, one-time cost, that may not be the wisest choice in the long term.

    The older your water heater is, the higher its chances of developing several problems and failures. The most financially-wise option is to replace your old water heater with a newer model. Particularly opting for a tankless water heater since they’re more energy-efficient, require less maintenance, and are easier to install than traditional models. For reliable water heater repair and replacement in Costa Mesa, CA, trust Tweedy Plumbing & Restoration to get the job done right the first time.

    Extremely professional, helpful, and thorough! Tim from Tweedy Plumbing provided excellent service and solutions for our issues!! Would highly recommend Tweedy Plumbing for any needs!
    Everyone from scheduling to service were great. Honest, to the point, and knowledgeable. They were able to fit me into their busy schedule withing hours...SAME DAY!!! I would recommend them in the Newport Mesa are for sure. FYI- they replaced the pilot assembly kit/thermocouple in my GE water heater. Not an easy task as it requires dis-assembly and taking the heater pan out.
