Hot Water TankS

Whether you are doing laundry or having a warm bath on a winter day, hot water tanks play a major role in every home. Many different styles of hot water heaters have been designed and used over the last 100 years. Electric hot water tanks, tankless hot water heaters and gas hot water tanks are the most popular today. Newer construction generally requires high-efficiency gas hot water tanks or on-demand/instant tankless hot water heaters. There is not a one-size-fits-all tank design - many factors go in to making sure our clients get the proper system installed. Our customers’ budget and system priorities are of the utmost importance when providing recommendations.

When is it time to replace my hot water tank?

Hot water tanks should be replaced every 8-12 years, but it may be time to replace it sooner if you notice any of the following signs:

  • Discolored water coming out of all hot fixtures

  • Hot water is only produced for a short period of time

  • Leaking or rusting

  • Hot water supply is insufficient for your family’s needs


Should I replace or repair my hot water tank?

If your hot water tank is only a few years old, our highly trained technicians will generally recommend a repair. While some issues may require a new hot water heater installation, there are many repairs or small parts that can be replaced to extend the life of your existing tank. 

What is the cost to replace a hot water tank in Calgary?
