Water Heater FAQs

How long can I expect my water heater to last? What's the warranty?

A typica warranty is 6 to 12 years, which is also the average life of a tank. Heavy use may shorten the tank's life. You can pay extra for insurance.

Is my water heater the right size?

A thirty gallon tank will just about supply enough hot water for 2 back to back showers. Ask your plumber if your current tank is appropriately sized for your family or business.

What is the correct setting for the water temperature on my water heater?

130 degrees.




What if my tank bursts?

Emergency kits are available to shut if the water supply and gas if the tanks burst, giving you piece of mind when not at home.
