Frequently Asked Hot Water Tank Questions

How long does a hot water tank typically last?

With proper maintenance, a hot water tank tank should last 8 to 12 years. This depends largely on the quality of installation, water quality, and how committed you are to your maintenance schedule.
If your hot water tank is more than 10 years old, it’s probably time to think about replacing it.

What are the signs that my hot water tank needs replacement?

Your first sign that your hot water tank needs replacement may be a higher than usual utility bill. If it seems like you’re using the same amount of hot water but your heater is using more energy, inspect your tank.

Another sign is no hot water at all. This may mean you have a broken heating element.

When inspecting your heater, check for leaks around the tank. A leaking tank needs replacing. Notice if there’s any unusual noises. Check if there’s rust, sediment, or cloudiness in the water. These could mean sediment or corrosion.

If you notice any of these, have your unit inspected by a professional. A replacement part may be able to keep your water tank going for a while longer. However, if it has a history of breaking down or is more than 10 years old, it’s probably time for a replacement.

How can I maintain my hot water tank to make it last as long as possible?

To make your hot water tank last as long as possible and keep it in great shape, you should expect to drain it, flush it, and clean it once a year. Inspect the anode rod every two-to-three years and replace it if it’s corroded. Check your tank for leaks or corrosion. Keep your thermostat at a safe temperature, typically around 49°C, to prevent overheating. Finally, have a professional inspect your tank occasionally and catch any problems early.

What are the differences between electric and gas hot water tanks?

Electric tanks are generally more energy-efficient, easier to install (only needing an electrical connection), but can cost more with the rising price of electricity. They take longer to heat up compared to gas models, but generally need less maintenance over time.

Gas tanks are less energy-efficient as they lose more heat through venting. They’re more complex to install, needing both a gas line and proper venting for exhaust gases. They usually cost less to run with the current lower price of natural gas. Gas hot water tanks also heat water faster but require more consistent maintenance for the gas burner and venting system.

Both types have advantages. Consider speaking to a professional before choosing.
