When to Replace Your Water Heater

Water heater issues should be addressed immediately because they could lead to floods and damage throughout your entire plumbing system. If your experiencing any of the issues listed below, it’s time to consider replacing or upgrading your water heater.

       Leaking water heater (no repair options, it must be replaced)
       Water heater is over 10 years old (most insurance plans don't cover damages for tanks 10+ years)
       Rust or corrosion around the tank or connections
       Little to no hot water on a regular basis

If you’re unsure of the condition of your water heater or are considering an upgrade to better suit your needs, contact us and we will provide you with honest advice.

Conventional Storage Tank Water Heater

    Energy: Natural Gas, Electric, Propane
    Type: Atmospheric ($), Power Vented ($$), and Condensing ($$$)
    Lifespan: 10 - 12 Years
    Visual: Large Cylinder Tank
    Best Feature: Most affordable (Atmospheric, which is the most common type)
    Minor Drawback: More likely to run out of hot water
    Maintenance Required: Annual Flush to avoid sediment, corrosion and poor performance

Conventional Storage Tanks are the most common choice in our community. Tanks hold the water that is available for use and once it’s heated, it will stay at a warm temperature ready for you to use it. It’s important to know there are three different classifications for the Storage Tank Heater.

Atmospheric is the most economical option but it’s also the least efficient. Power Vented has an electronic ignition and is slightly more efficient. The Condensing option is the cream of the crop as they are up to 97% efficient and will certainly save you money on your hydro bill.

On-Demand Water Heater/Tankless

     Energy: Natural Gas, Electric
     Lifespan: 8 - 10 Years
     Visual: Square or Rectangular Shaped Box
     Best Feature: Endless hot water supply
     Minor Drawback: More complicated to install, Larger Investment
     Maintenance Required: Annual Cleaning to avoid sediment, corrosion and poor performance

This is our second most popular water heater option and we love it! The water passes through coils in the heat exchanger to heat up the water instantly at the desired temperature. This is the best choice for families who have a higher demand for hot water at once. Another big benefit is that this system takes up less space and fits well in smaller areas. They are super-efficient because they only heat the hot water when you need it, making it easier on your hydro bill.

Water Heater Maintenance (Water Heater Flushing)

Your water heater works hard all day every day to provide hot water for your entire family. Even if it’s brand new, your water heater requires regular annual maintenance to perform at it’s best and last longer. Neglected water heaters typically work harder and slower to heat up water, so they end up using more energy. It’s better to be proactive and have your water heater serviced by a professional every year.

Benefits of a Water Heater Flush:

Reduce Energy Consumption
Did you know that buildup causes your tank to increase energy usage? The harder your water heater must work to heat the water; the more energy will be used every day. Sediment and build-up in your water heater will hinder the performance of your unit. If your tank is working overtime, you’re going to pay for it on your hydro bill.
Increased Hot Water
A sluggish water heater will experience slower water heating capabilities. Buildup makes it difficult for your tank to go through the heat transfer process which means you’ll be running out of hot water faster and waiting longer for more water to heat up. Water heater flush helps clear away buildup and increase the performance of your tank.
Reduce Odours
Like any organic matter that accumulates over time, the sediment in your tank can give off an unpleasant smell. Even your first flush can help alleviate unpleasant odours.
Prevent Emergencies
As part of our water heater flush service, we also include a water heater inspection to keep you informed about the condition of water heater. We check for irregularities or warning signs, the condition of the tank and piping leading to it, and if you require any plumbing code updates.
