The average life of a traditional natural gas water heater is 11 years. That’s not to say yours won’t last longer, but if it has you’re on borrowed time. One of the most common symptoms of a water heater at the end of its life is a pool of water on the floor! So if you can, be proactive!
JEM Plumbing of Mokena can replace any water heater, but here are the three most common sizes:
In apartments, businesses and other special applications there are 2 gallon water heaters, 5 gallon water heaters and 18 gallon water heaters – we can service those too.
The most important factor in replacing a water heater is to ensure that the new water heater has a metal drain valve (not plastic) and a heavy duty regulator.
If you require a PowerVent natural gas water heater, please note that they are about $300 more than a conventional water heater with chimney.
