Hot Water Tanks

Every home has a hot water tank

A hot water tank is found in every home.  Homeowners enjoy warm showers and baths, hot water for dishwashing and cleaning.  The lowly hot water tank is never seen, but always appreciated.  Typically sizes are 40 and 60 gallon for homes, larger for commercial or apartment buildings.  They are heated with electric elements or gas fired.  The gas fired tanks have a faster recovery time if more users are using around the same time.

Lifetime

Although the hot water tank is built to be durable, they only last 10-20 years therefore at some point in time it will need replacing.  Signs of failure include brown water from the hot water tap or not enough hot water.  The other sign of failure is a big puddle on the floor.  This is not good if left unattended.

Precautions

Installing a drip tray under the hot water tank will give a controlled drain mechanism so eventual failure doesnt ruin flooring or flow to lower levels of the home.  Homeowners that install water sensor alarms will know if there is a leak very quickly giving a chance to shut off the water supply and arrange for replacement.

Replacement Hot Water Tank Options

The simplest replacement is to install the same model hot water tank.  However, stepping up to a more energy efficient model will save heating costs later, so call us at Nordic Energy to discuss upgrading options, including converting to a tankless water heater.

Looking Forward to Using Our New Fireplace!

The guys from Nordic Energy Systems were really good. We called them to install a new fire place/chimney. Going into the project I was a little bit worried. We had a brand new steel roof and I was afraid it might get messed up during the installation, but my fears were unwarranted. Everything looks great!
