Hot Water Tanks

Hot Water Tanks

Hot Water Tanks are often referred to as Hot Water Heaters. However, regardless of the name you choose to call them, they are both the same thing as they all heat and store hot water.  The average Hot Water Tank’s lifespan is approximately 8-12 years, but its potential life expectancy depends on the brand, location, design of the unit, quality of installation, water quality, amount of use, and maintenance schedule. Professionals believe that you could possibly double the length of time the tank could last with proper maintenance 1.
