How old is your Water Heater?

Did you know your water heaters age matters?

Based on the manufacturer's suggested service life, the life expectancy of a water heater is about 8 to 12 years. That varies with the location and design of the unit, quality of installation, maintenance schedule and water quality.


A little preventive maintenance keeps the hot water flowing and extends your water heater's lifespan. Don't worry about any gurgling or groaning noises coming from the heater. You can google the proper steps to take, depending on the type of water heater you have.


Remember to set your water heater's dial to 120 degrees F. If the dial doesn't have numbers, check the water temperature with a cooking thermometer. Higher temperatures increase sediment buildup and the risk of scalding injuries. If you have any questions or would like to schedule a maintenance with one of ASP's trained technician, Call 952-529-2594.
