Conventional water heaters, also known as storage tank water heaters, are the most common type – they consist of an insulated tank (where water is heated and stored until needed), as well as either gas burners or electric heating elements. When the water temperature falls below a preset level, the unit engages, and the water is reheated. Natural gas water heaters normally use less energy and cost less to operate than electric water heaters, but can be more expensive and more complicated to install. They hold 20 to 100 gallons of water, depending on the needs of your home.

If your water heater has been repaired multiple times over the last few years, the time has come to replace it. A good rule of thumb for water heaters is this: since the lifespan of the average water heater is between 8-12 years, around 5-6 years is the halfway point. If the cost of a repair is more than 50% the cost of a replacement at that point, then it is more practical and far-sighted to replace your water heater.
