Knowing when to repair or replace your water heater
“Decide on water heater repair vs. replacement. Does your present hot water heater still fall into the ‘slowing down on the job” camp? Call a reliable service person. If your heater’s not leaking or rusting or exploding, a good tuneup or repair might allow you to delay purchasing a replacement for another few years, especially if yours is relatively new.
Know expected lifespan. Know how long your water heater model is likely to last so you can plan ahead for the replacement, by getting your budget together and shopping around for the best price or special deal. A tank water heater normally lasts about 8-12 years, while you should get approximately 15 years of service from a tankless model.”

If you’re in the market for a new hot water heater, a tankless or hybrid model might be the best solution. These types of water heaters allow for instant or on-demand hot water. So there is no worry of running out of hot water during a shower. This is especially helpful for large families where hot water is in constant demand.
