how long does an electric water heat last?

@shynu44 Indeed, I have to say I am pretty proud of some of the quality we use to buy back in the day. These days, seems no matter where you go, never going to find that kind of quality. Sad days we live in in that regard. Money before people is what I always say, that is where we are at.
How long your water heater lasts depends on a lot of variables including the hardness of your water-what kinds of minerals appear in your water, the frequency the heater is used and so on. Tankless systems are basically electronic and as a result will only heat the water on demand, lasting much longer. That is what we currently have and had in our last home. They are very expensive to have installed, but down the road they eventually start to pay off since you don't heat and reheat the same water over and over again in between anyone drawing hot water.
