What to Look for in a new hot water tank

When you need your Calgary hot water tank installed, you want a local company familiar with the various code requirements to handle the work. Spring’s Servicing & Heating has the necessary permits and expertise to complete any hot water tank installation quickly, correctly, and always to code.

Do you need a new hot water tank installed or serviced? We’re here to answer any questions you may have. Here are some considerations when you’re searching for a new hot water tank.

Fuel Source

Determine if you want a gas, electric, or solar water heater based on availability, cost, and other considerations. Gas models typically heat water faster and are more efficient during power outages, while electric models are usually more affordable to install.


Longer warranties can offer peace of mind and indicate the manufacturer’s confidence in their product. Compare warranty lengths and what they cover.

Size & Capacity

For tank water heaters, choose a size that can meet your household’s peak demand for hot water. For tankless models, consider the flow rate and ensure it can handle your simultaneous hot water needs.

Energy Efficiency

Look for models with high energy efficiency ratings to save on operating costs and reduce environmental impact. ENERGY STAR® certified models often offer the best efficiency.

Is it time to replace your hot water tank?

There are several telltale signs that you require a new hot water heater. Hot water tanks, like any household appliance, tend to wear out over time. When your water tank reaches a certain age, it may be time to be thinking about replacing it. Common reasons to replace your hot water heater include:

  • Age of the unit (typically over 10 years)
  • Rusty water coming from taps
  • Increasing frequency of repairs
  • Inconsistent hot water supply
  • Visible rust or corrosion on the tank
  • Leakage around the base of the heater
  • Unusual noises, like rumbling or banging, from the tank
  • A significant drop in water heater efficiency
  • The presence of cloudy or sandy water
  • Increased energy bills due to decreased efficiency

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know if I need to replace my hot water tank?

There are numerous ways to determine whether you should replace your hot water tank or not. Some of the telltale signs include:

  • Your hot water tank is 10 (or more) years old
  • It’s making “knocking” noises
  • It leaks
  • It’s producing rusty water or water with a metallic stench

As long as no unexpected issues arise, a certified plumber can do the job in 2 to 3 hours.

The typical price of a hot water tank (40 gallons) is around $1200-$1600—this includes installation. However, this price can fluctuate depending on the brand you choose, the warranty, the model of the hot water tank model, as well as the company tasked with installing it.

Simply take into account how many people live under your roof. For example, a small tank (50- to 60-gallon) should be adequate for one to three people. A medium tank (80-gallon) is sufficient for three to four people. And a large tank will accommodate four to six people.

It is possible for residential water heaters to explode. Such circumstances are rare; however, if they do occur, they have the potential to be deadly. Explosions can occur with both gas or electric hot water tanks; it’s typically the result of tanks not being maintained properly. So be sure your tank is in good condition and adequately maintained.

It may be due to residue accumulation at the bottom of the tank. If such is the case, the noises result from simmering water entrapped within the residue. This issue can be resolved by emptying the water heater at least once annually.
