Hot Water Tank Replacements

Do you know the age of your current water heater? While your water heater isn’t as expensive as your furnace, it’s still an integral part of your everyday life. Knowing the signs of an ailing water heater will help you be proactive and enable you in making a contentious decision.  


With the average life expectancy of a water heater today being approximately 8-10 years, age is always an important factor to consider. If your water heater is close to this age, or older, we recommend that you start looking into what a water heater replacement entails. Let’s face it, shopping for a replacement after your water heater has stopped working, is not fun. Starting your research early allows you to make an informed decision, and not one that is based solely on dollar and time frame. 


As a water heater approaches the end of its life expectancy, you may start to notice odd sounds coming from the unit. Popping, creaking and rumbling noises have all been reported from units that are starting to fail. The very distinctive popping/crackling sounds from water heaters are results of sediment build up within the tank. As the water in your tank begins to heat up, the air pockets within the sediment begin to heat up as well, causing them to expand and press against the calcified sediment, making a popping sound. 


One of the most common signs of a failing water heater is a lack of sufficient hot water. Common minerals that are found in tap water tend to separate and settle at the bottom of the water heater. Overtime, these minerals tend to build up and create a layer of sediment between the burner and the water. In turn, this means that less heat will reach the water, which results in cooler showers. 


Discoloration and odour of your hot water may be a sign indicating that your tank may require replacement. Minerals located in drinking water may cause deposits to form within your tank. Over time, these deposits can break off and be sent through your pipes. This can impact faucets, fixtures, and appliances. These minerals will also cause the hot water to appear discoloured or “murky”. However, if you notice an orange or reddish tinge to your water, this may be a sign that your tank, pipes or both have rust in them. 



Do you notice water on the floor, surrounding your water heater? There are a couple explanations that could explain this:

  • Leaking Tank

    • If you notice water pooling at the base of your tank, this could be a result of the base of your water heater having corrosion. Corrosion within the tank can lead to cracks and fractures, which can result in leaks. A leaking water heater can’t be repaired, and will result in a replacement. A leaking water heater can in turn flood your basement if not replaced in a timely manner.

  • Leaking Temperature and Pressure Relief Valve

    • When your water heater discharges from the T&P valve, that doesn’t necessarily mean that the tank is starting to fail, it just means that the T&P valve is doing its job. When water is heated it expands, causing the water to push its way back into the cold supply coming into the house. When there is a check valve on the system, the water will have nowhere to go, so the T&P valve will discharge to relieve pressure within the tank.

It is always important to have your water heater inspected whenever there is water outside of the tank

"I contacted Shawn with Express to install a garage heater. Shawn came the next day – surveyed the job – wrote out an estimate for the work – took a photo of it and sent it to me by text before he left my home. The estimate was reasonable and could do the work the next week. Guys arrived the next week at 8 am sharp – dug a trench with a hoe, tied in and installed a gas line to the garage – installed the heater. All was finished and working by 3 pm. Excellent workmanship – I was very impressed. Very personable – professional team – do great work – and fast. Would recommend to anyone. My compliments to Sean and his team."
