Causes of Water Heater Problems
The most common water heater problems can be traced to sediment buildup within the tank. This sediment can lead to clogged lines and faulty sensors which cause the temperature readings to fluctuate and reduce the efficiency of the machine.
Another common problem is the heating element. These devices can burn out after a certain amount of time, causing the water to not heat up correctly and making the unit use far more power than it normally would. Heating elements are easy to replace, however, so the repair is not a major issue.
Do You Know How Long Your Unit Will Last?
Gas and electric water heaters can last around 10 years while tankless heaters can last up to 20. However, it is common to replace a unit around every 15 years to upgrade to a more energy-efficient, cost-saving model. Thermostats are rated for 35 years of use, but because the technology improves much faster, they are rarely allowed to go that long without replacement.
Water Heater Repair vs. Replacement
Water heaters can last a long time with proper care, even beyond their rated lifespan. However, if you begin to spend more money working to repair your water heater than you spent on it originally, it might be time to replace the unit completely and upgrade to a better model. If you have had the same water heater for more than 10 years, it is also a good idea to replace it for one that will save you money on energy costs. However, a recently purchased water heater should be repaired rather than replaced if at all possible.

“We have been using Mark Johnson Plumbing for a number of years. We have always been pleased with the technicians and the services they perform.”- James A.
Hagen came & quickly assesses the situation after Atmos came out & cut the gas off. He was very professional & founds the two problems quickly! Luckily they were not pricey Issues at all. Then (Christopher) Chris Came back Out very quickly to cut the gas back on inside the house after Atmos did outside. Due to COVID they could not come in the house to turn the valves back on which we had NO idea where they were located. We felt SO stupid that we couldn’t handle that but Chris assured us that most wouldn’t!
He was so nice & professional!! I will definitely call Mark Johnson again.” - Marion W.
