Water heaters can last up to 12 years. After that, they begin to lose efficiency or they stop working altogether. Although most people wait until the existing unit gives out before they schedule a new installation, it makes more sense to shop around ahead of time for the best possible option at the lowest possible price. As the unit ages, it loses efficiency and costs more to operate, which is another good reason to schedule a new installation sooner rather than later. Whether you’re looking for a tank heater or a newer, more efficient tankless unit, call KMP today.
