Older Water Heaters – Home Inspection Sarasota FL | Direct Inspections

When is a water heater old enough to proactively replace?

A lot of my home inspection customers are worried about their water heaters rightly so. Water heaters can be in good shape visually but the internal components may be failing due to age. The first step is to find out how old the water heater is. Some water heaters will clearly state their age on the label, while others hide information within a code. Buildingcenter.org can be very helpful in determining the age of coded mechanical equipment such as water heaters and HVAC equipment.
