Hot Water Tank Replacement

When is it time to replace my hot water tank?

We get asked this question a lot and the answer may not be as obvious as you may think. There are several tell tale signs that you require a new hot water heater. Hot water tanks tend to wear out over time like any household appliance. When your water tank reaches a certain age it may be time to be thinking about replacing it.

Trust the experts at Springs for quality tank replacements.

When you need to have your Calgary hot water tank replaced, you want to have a local company familiar with the various code requirements handling 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.

There are several reasons to replace the hot water tank in your home:

Water is not hot enough

You may be noticing that you are not even able to get one hot shower in before you are noticing that the water is becoming luke warm. This is a sure sign that the hot water tank should be replaced. A 40 US gallon natural aspirating hot water tank should be able to accommodate a family of 4 quiet easily.

Running out of hot water

You may be noticing that you are running out of hot water a lot sooner then usual. For example, if you were able to run the dishwasher, a load of laundry and take a shower without running out of water but notice that you are only able to run the dishwasher and are freezing in the shower you may want to consider replacing the tank. This issue is very common in older tanks (8 years and older). These hot water tanks are no longer able to keep up with the demands of the household and simply become inefficient.

Age of the tank

This point may not be as obvious as some of the other points but it is still worth considering. If your tank has lasted well beyond it’s life expectancy then you should be considering replacing it sooner rather than later. When it comes to replacing a hot water tank it is better to be proactive rather than reactive and having to deal with water all over your basement floor.

Rust and Corrosion

Eventually, hot water tanks will begin to show their age. If you are noticing rust or corrosion build up around the water tank this is a sign that you should be replacing it. Hot water tanks are designed to withstand rust for their entire life span, but if your tank is well past it’s prime rust and corrosion are inevitable.

Leaking Hot Water Tank

This is a pretty obvious one. If you find that your hot water tank is leaking our technicians at Spring’s Heating will notify you that the leak is not repairable and will recommend the best fit for a new hot water tank for your household. This is quiet a common issue and if not addressed immediately may result in flooding of the mechanical room or depending on the severity of the leak the basement it’s self.
