This Vancouver hot water tank replacement by DJ Plumbing and HeatingHow Do I Know If I Need To Replace My Hot Water Tank?

Here are 6 of the most common signs to look for when determining whether or not you need to replace your hot water heater.

  • Warranty on your tank and its working components have expired
  • You may start to notice leaks on the top or around the area of the tank
  • Issues with the overall water quality – rust and visible sediment in your hot water supply. If your water is rust colored this is usually a sign that your a tank needs replacing.
  • Drop in the hot water temperature or the duration of running hot water from your tap
  • A Dripping Temperature and Pressure Valve could be the result of thermal expansion
  • Water drops on tank could be a result of a dripping shut off valve. Over time the packing nut inside these valves wears out and as a result need to be replaced.

The Benefits of Switching to a Tankless On-Demand Hot Water Heater System

There are many advantages to upgrading to a tankless on-demand hot water heating system. Give us a call and one of expert staff will provide you with the information you need to decide whether one of these units are right for you.

The traditional storage tank/hot water heater, depending on its size, stores between 40gal and 65gal of water and heats water in the tank to a constant temperature. This requires a standing pilot light to fire the burners to heat the water to a set temperature. Once the hot water in the tank is used up it takes time and energy to replenish the hot water to your home. In comparison, a tankless on-demand unit only fires when there is a specific need for hot water resulting in a constant, continuous flow of hot water. Instead of heating a tank full of water it only heats water, as it is needed. This makes these type of heaters much more efficient.

  • Switch to a Tankless System and Save $$$ on your Energy Costs… Making the move from a conventional hot water tank to a tankless unit will reduce the amount of power consumed by 30%.
  • A Tankless Water Heater Takes Up a Fraction of the Space… These wall-mounted units do not require large storage tanks and therefore can be installed in a much smaller space.
  • There is No Need to Change Them Out… With regular yearly service and maintenance these units can last up to 20 years.
