Is it dangerous to have a leaking water heater?
It can be dangerous to have a leaking water heater. If the Temperature and Pressure valve fails to turn off your water heater when the temperature or pressure is too high, your water heater could explode. If you notice your water heater is leaking, call a trusted plumber at Pro Plumbing Air & Electric as soon as possible, to be safe.
What is the average lifespan of a water heater?
The average life expectancy of a water heater is around eight to twelve years but it is important to take into account the manufacturer’s suggested service life of your particular model as well when trying to estimate its lifespan.
What would cause a water heater to stop working?
The most common reason a water heater will stop working is sediment buildup, especially as the water heater ages. When water is heated, minerals like calcium and magnesium collect along the sides of the tank and the burner. If these minerals are not filtered out of the water heater, they form a sediment barrier that will settle on the burner and seriously affect your water heater’s performance.
