Hot water tanks come in two variants, gas heater and electric heater. The gas heater contains a gas-powered flame at the bottom of the tank that sends hot air up a chimney which transmits heat to the water. On the other hand, electric water heaters have heating elements that extend into the water tank.
Whether your hot water tank needs replacement or not depends on your tank type. Generally, electric hot water tanks outlive the gas ones. The following are some of the common signs of hot water tank replacement that you can watch out for:
Leaks from the tank
Rusty water in your pipes
Knocking noises from the heater
If you are facing any of these problems, call our professionals for help.
Regular hot water tank maintenance can help keep it working well for a longer time. It is important to address issues on time, as delays can lead to dangerous situations.
Hot water tank is not staying lit A faulty thermocouple may be the problem. A thermocouple is a device that checks the pilot light of your water heater.
Hot water tank is not filling up If your hot water runs out very quickly or you have low water pressure, your hot water tank may not be filling up properly. There may be a leak in your tank.
Leakage from the bottom of the tank The drain valve that allows you to drain your water tank during maintenance may be leaking. In that case, the problem can be fixed easily.
Leakage from the top of the tank A hot water tank is a pressurized system, and loose fittings around the pipes present at the top can cause a leak. There may also be an issue with the temperature-pressure valve.
