Question DetailsAsked on 3/15/2016

Which tankless water heaters come with a 15 year warranty?

In a recent article from Angieslist Magazine, Adam Wire compiled the data for an article on traditional water heaters vs tankless water heaters and in the article he states that in regards to security," tankless water heaters often come with a 15-year warranty". I use 3 tankless water heaters and they don't seem to last more than 3 or 4 years and the guarantee is for 1 year, so I'd be interested in upgrading to one with a 15-year guarantee. The magazine was from the Miami Edition / March 2016.

A quick product listing book search shows 15 year warranty tankless water heaters available from following at least - though not all are available in all capacities or fuels -

State
Rheem
AO Smith
Noret
Takagi
Rinnai
Noritz
Bosch

Of course, in most or all cases will be a product-only warranty, at least after the first year max probably, and some may have fine print about requiring proof of PROFESSIONAL annual deliming and cleaning (not DIY) and so forth to keep the warranty valid, so read the documents. And most are likely pro-rated after 1 year, not full replacement. Also - some warranties are for replacement with their product only, so if it fails you do not have the option of a cash refund or going with another brand.

My experience - more like yours - don't count on more than 5 years life max, and less commonly.
