Time to replace your hot water tank?

A storage tank hot water heater typically lasts 8 years – once your tank warranty runs out, you should check to make sure that your home insurance is still valid for a water tank leak. By inspecting your hot water tank regularly you can spot issues before the tank deteriorates and causes water damage to your home. Here are some signs that it’s time to replace your water heater:

  • There is little or no pressure on the hot side
  • Hot or cold connections are rusty on top of the tank
  • The temperature and pressure (T&P) relief valve is rusty or letting water past
  • You are unable to release water through the heater’s drain valve
  • Water is pooling at the base of the heater
  • Water temperature has dropped
  • Pieces of white plastic in your showerhead or faucet aerators
  • Gas pilot will not stay lit

How to choose a hot water heater

Hot water heaters come in two forms: The regular storage tank hot water heater, and the tankless hot water heaters. When you’re choosing a model, you’ll want to consider the following:

  • Energy efficiency
  • Cost
  • Amount of water you use each day
  • Space available for installation

Storage tanks:

Storage tank hot water heaters are insulated steel cylinders fed by a cold water intake line at their most basic level. Water is heated with gas or electricity and kept at a consistent temperature inside the tank. Although gas heaters are more expensive than electric heaters, a gas water heater will cost you around half as much to run as an equivalent electric type, depending on national average fuel costs.

Tankless heaters:

These models can range in size from suitcase-sized units that service the entire house to smaller ones that simply give hot water to a single fixture and are typically found under a sink. The units only heat water when it’s needed, so you’ll always have hot water. The water is heated by an electric coil or natural gas as it flows through a heat exchanger inside the machine. Your energy costs are reduced because you aren’t continually reheating water. A tankless heater costs significantly more to buy than a storage tank, but they can last up to 20 years. We can assist you find the perfect hot water heater for your needs and budget at Coal Harbour Mechanical.
