Hot Water Heater Installation FAQs

A tankless water heater installation is not a do-it-yourself activity. It should be dealt with by a qualified technician with experience. DIY installation comes with a number of significant dangers, such as the possibility of gas or electrical problems, safety issues, including electrical fires and carbon monoxide leaks, and warranty voids.

Tankless water heaters that have been appropriately installed are better able to successfully meet your household’s hot water needs because professionals can precisely size the unit and guarantee that it conforms with regional building and safety codes. In the long run, paying for professional installation is necessary for efficiency and peace of mind.

A hot water tank that is dripping from the bottom indicates a severe issue that has to be fixed right away. There are several possible causes of this kind of leak, including:
· Corrosion: As a result of being subjected to the minerals in the water, the interior of the tank may corrode over time. Leaks may result from small holes or cracks caused by corrosion in the metal of the tank.
· Pressure relief valve malfunction: The pressure relief valve, which is located at the top of the tank, occasionally experiences problems, which results in water discharge that appears to be coming from the bottom.
· Sediment buildup: As sediment warms and reheats, it can pile at the bottom of the tank and cause hot spots that compromise the tank’s structural integrity and cause leaks.
· Condensation: In some instances, the leak may not originate from the tank but rather from condensation that developed on the exterior as a result of temperature changes. Usually, this is not a significant problem.
· Drain valve leak: Occasionally, the drain valve at the base of the tank may start to leak. The valve may usually be tightened or replaced to solve this problem quickly.
· Age: If your hot water tank has reached the end of its lifespan, it may start experiencing damage like leaking water.

If your home’s hot water tank is reaching the end of its lifespan and continues to leak uncontrollably, it may be time to ditch the tank and upgrade to a tankless water heater.

The lifespan of a conventional water heater can differ depending on the type of tank, how well it is maintained, and the quality of the water in your area. Consider the following while deciding whether to replace your water tank:

· Age: A traditional water heater typically lasts 10 to 15 years. If your water heater approaches or has reached this age range, now is a great time to start thinking about replacement.
· Efficiency: As water heaters age, they tend to become less efficient. If your energy costs noticeably rise or it becomes challenging to keep a consistent flow of hot water, it could be time to upgrade to a more energy-efficient water heater, such as a tankless model.
· Recurrent repairs: If you frequently have to remedy leaks, pilot light issues, or heating malfunctions, upgrading your water heater may be more economical than investing more money in repairs.
· Corrosion: Look for any signs of metal corrosion or rust on the tank or in the connectors. Rust is a clear indication that your water heater needs to be replaced because it is getting older.
· Leaking: If water begins to collect around your water heater, there is likely a leak. Leaks typically indicate that the unit has to be replaced. That said, some leaks might be significant, ongoing, or repairable.
· Inadequate hot water: If your water heater is no longer producing enough hot water for your needs, even after adjusting the thermostat, it may be time for a replacement.
· Odd noises: Strange noises could be a sign of sediment accumulation or other issues inside the tank. Even after flushing the tank, if the noises persist, the water heater may be nearing the end of its usable life.
· Changes in water quality: If you notice that the colour or scent of your hot water has changed, internal tank corrosion may be at fault. This shows that the water heater needs to be replaced.

What Homeowners Say About Us

“I had a very complicated AC installation which was 10 feet from the house and I had a post modern furnace, a Polaris, which had limited basement clearance. The Francis home environment team were fantastic! The guys were very well trained they did their job efficiently they were tidy and they were also polite. They showed initiative and they were undeterred by my problem basement. They did excellent problem-solving! Thank you especially to Caleb and Josh and Garrison. I highly recommend this company.
