Hot Water Tank & Tankless FAQs

You have questions, we have answers! Take a browse below for our most commonly asked questions.

How Long Does a Hot Water Tank Last?

Depending on the manufacturer of your existing tank, the life expectancy will differ. However, in our professional opinion, hot water tanks often have a lifespan of about 8 to 12 years. This depends largely on the quality of installation, water quality, and how committed you are to your maintenance schedule.

What do You do When Your Home’s Warm Water Goes Cold?

You heavily rely on warm water in your home—for washing your hands, showering, cleaning dishes, doing laundry, and other important reasons. When your hot water tank has a breakdown, though, it puts everything on hold until it is fixed. This is frustrating and you hurriedly try to find a quality plumbing company that can get to your home as fast as possible and get your warm water working again.

We love being plumbing superheroes and can save the day when hot water tanks need to be repaired or replaced by a new one the same day, if needed. We have the best plumbers in Calgary. Therefore, contact Son-Rise Plumbing & Gasfitting today at 403-274-1166 so that we can show you firsthand.

What are the Signs That My Hot Water Tank Needs Repair or Replacing?

There are five major signs that we suggest our clientele watches out for as their water tank begins to age.

  • Your water heater has outlasted its lifespan.
  • You’ve noticed rusty water, rusty pipes, or a rusty inlet valve. Once rust begins to accumulate, the lifespan of your water tank is nearing the end.
  • You’re noticing an unfamiliar water tank noise. If you’ve heard a rumbling sound, call us as soon as possible.
  • You’re beginning to get a water tank leak.
  • Your water isn’t heating as it should.

What is a Tankless Hot Water Heater?

Tankless water heaters only heat water as needed. When the hot water is turned on, you will be delighted by continuous hot water heated with a gas burner or electric element. Known for its energy efficiency, tankless water heaters cut down on energy costs and energy consumption, but it’s often more expensive upfront. For your tankless water heater installation in Calgary, call us today.

What is the Cause of My Hot Water Tank Leaking?

If there’s a build up of sediment inside the tank, it’ll cause corrosion and cracking. Once you notice a leak, it’s most likely that you’ll need to replace your hot water tank.

When do Hot Water Heaters Need to be Repaired?

Though at times it may be challenging to know when a water heater needs to be fixed, there are a few signs to look out for to make that determination, including:

  • Water heater tank is making irregular noises
  • Hot water is in limited supply
  • Water takes too long to heat up
  • Rust showing up in your hot water
  • Water is pooling around the tank’s collection pan
  • A rumble-like sound is heard in the hot water tank or pipes when it’s on

If any of the above-mentioned signs are now apparent, it’s time to get your water heater repaired so that it functions normally again and complicated and expensive problems do not develop down the road.

If your water heater isn’t working as it should be, let us get it back into good shape, or if you need a new one, then we would be honoured to effectively install it. Our team consists of the best Calgary plumbers. Therefore, contact Son-Rise Plumbing & Gasfitting today at 403-274-1166 so we can work our magic.
