Water Heater Life Expectancy
Tankless heaters have a life expectancy of 15-20 years while conventional water heaters should last about 11 years. Hard water will shorten the life of water heaters. Regular maintenance of water heaters will prolong the life of a water heater.
Tankless water heaters are considered more energy efficient than conventional heaters because they don’t have to continually heat a tank of water. Tankless water heaters heat water instantly whenever a hot water tap is opened. But not all conventional heaters are created equally. The most heavily insulated conventional water heaters rival tankless water heaters for efficiency and require no special modifications to your power supply, gas lines or ventilation.
