Hot Water Tanks

New Installations

No matter how well-maintained your hot water tank may have been over the years, like any piece of mechanical equipment it will eventually need to be replaced. For most water heaters this happens around the 6-7 year mark; so if you’ve had your hot water tank for more than a handful of years, it may be time for a replacement.

You Might Have a Problem If
  • You’re experiencing sharp stings of cold water. If you’ve opened your hot water valve then you shouldn’t experience sharp stings of icy water in the middle of an otherwise warm flow.
  • Inconsistent hot water availability. If your hot water availability has become inconsistent recently then there’s an issue with your tank.
  • Your system isn’t producing any hot water. This is the easiest, and most stressful, way to discover that it’s time for a new installation.

You Might Have a Problem If
  • You have thermostat issues. If the thermostat on your tank is malfunctioning then it may be affecting your unit’s ability to deliver water at the right temperature.
  • You’re experiencing ice-cold ‘stings.’ Have you had a shower that was ruined by an ice-cold stream of water? Then it’s time to call for repairs.
  • Your pilot light is out. If your pilot light is out it means the water stored in your tank can’t be properly heated.

When was the last time you had your hot water tank maintained? Even though these mechanical pieces of equipment tend to have a limited lifespan of 6-7 years, regularly scheduled maintenance not only helps extend the lifetime of your unit, but it can reduce your energy bills by reducing the overall strain on your plumbing system.

You Might Have a Problem If
  • Your hydro bills are going up. Poorly-functioning systems not only cost more in repairs, but the additional strain on your system can cause your monthly hydro bills to increase as well.
  • Puddles of water are accumulating around your tank. A leaky tank doesn’t just mean lost water; it may indicate a larger problem that needs to be resolved.
