Hot Water Heater Service FAQ

Just like a furnace or heat pump, water heater systems require regular servicing to deliver maximum performance.

That's why, whether it's for traditional water heaters or tankless water heaters, experts recommend that you get your system serviced every 6 months, typically in the spring and the fall. If you wait many years between service appointments to save money, you're almost certainly going to end up spending more by inefficiently heating the water in your house.

Even if you have a new water heater (yes, this still applies to on-demand tankless water heaters), these routine servicing appointments are vital for keeping your unit in great working condition, spotting plumbing issues early, identifying safety issues like gas leaks, and avoiding unnecessary repair work in the long run.

As of 2022, it generally costs around $1800 - $2000 to replace a residential water heater in British Columbia. Keep in mind, though, that the replacement and installation cost for your home will depend on the size of your water heater, the type of water heater, and the overall complexity of your home's plumbing & heating system.

Gas-powered hot water heaters typically need to be replaced after 8-10 years, while electric heating units tend to last for 10-15 years. Tankless water heaters have the longest overall lifespans, generally lasting for at least 15 years before replacement is needed.

The lifespan of your specific water heater will depend on the water in your area (hard water vs soft water), the temperature it’s set to, and how well it's maintained.

Depending on the condition of your heating unit, a repair may be able to extend its lifespan, so it's always worth calling for a free water heater repair estimate before you start researching the cost of installation for an entirely new unit.

  • Poor heating performance
  • A yellow pilot light on the tank
  • Cloudy, hazy-looking water
  • Inconsistent water pressure
  • Unusual noises coming from the tank
  • Signs of a leak or pooling water around the tank
  • Water that smells or tastes unusual
  • Rusting on or around the tank

While one of these symptoms alone might not be a sign that your water heater is nearing the end of its lifespan, several at once is typically a more reliable indicator.
