If you’re looking to replace your water heater, one of the first decisions to make is whether to go with a conventional hot water tank or a tankless water heater. The right choice will depend on several factors. No matter your choice, Advanced HVAC is there to help you decide on and install your brand new water heater.

A tankless water heater only heats water when you need it, and saves on energy costs. But tankless water heaters cost more upfront, and depending on the brand installation can be an added expense. If you are single or living as a couple, a tankless water heater might be the choice for you. Conventional water tanks keep a stored tank full of water heated to your set temperature around the clock – good if you have a small family, are home more frequently, and space isn’t an issue.



Hot water tanks come in all different shapes and sizes, each one with different pros and cons. Some of them will last longer, some are more compact, and some are more efficient. This can make it difficult to know what type of hot water tank is right for you. Find the right hot water tank for your home or business with help from Advanced HVAC! We provide consultations free of charge to help you get the right hot water tank.

Whether you are looking for a hot water tank that will stand the test of time or one that will save you as much floor space as possible, Advanced HVAC is here to help! Contact us today to learn more about our hot water tank installation, repair, and maintenance services.

Frequently Asked Questions

How often do I need to service my hot water tank?2022-01-05T15:53:18-04:00

It depends on manufacturer specifications and the mineral content of your water. Different manufacturers have different requirements for servicing and maintenance work to keep the hot water tank working efficiently and to help protect your warranty.

We recommend flushing your hot water tank roughly every 6 months. Depending on the mineral content of your local water supply, you may need to do it even more often. Contact our team to help with your hot water tank questions and servicing needs!

Why is my hot water tank making noise?2022-01-05T15:53:17-04:00

A noisy hot water tank can make a variety of different sounds – maybe a rumble, sizzling, pops, or a constant hum. Some of the unusual sounds that your hot water tank makes could be from some of the following problems:

  • Poor water flow
  • Accumulation of mineral deposits
  • Leaks
  • Faulty heating element

If you’re experiencing any of these sounds and aren’t sure what the cause is, you should call the professionals. Our team can help assess the problem with your hot water tank and provide an affordable and effective solution. Contact us today!

Why is my hot water tank leaking?2021-01-13T18:04:35-04:00

Sometimes hot water tanks can leak. At times it is possible to identify the source of the leak but other times you’ll just notice a puddle of water underneath it with no real idea of what the issue really is. If water is spraying from pipes near the water heater or flooding from the water heater itself, there is probably an issue with the water pressure in the pipes or from the tank. If this is the case, immediately turn off the valve on the supply side of the leak to cut the water. Sometimes the leaks are due to corrosion in the hot water tank itself, as hot water tanks have a limited lifespan. Sometimes leaks occur from electric water heater’s heating element gaskets and require maintenance. If you are experiencing leaks in your hot water heater, contact us today.

How long do hot water tanks last?2021-01-13T18:03:25-04:00

How long a hot water tank lasts depends on a few factors such as the specific model used, how heavily it was used, and how well it was maintained. Generally, traditional hot water tanks can be expected to last from 8 to 12 years. If you are unsure how old your hot water tank is, check out its serial number. In the upper part of the water heater you will be able to find the serial number. The letter stands for the month and are in chronological order – A for January, B for February, C for March etc. The next two numbers indicate the year it was manufactured in. So, a serial number beginning in C19 would have been made in March 2019. If you believe it is time to replace your hot water tank, contact us today. We can help determine if your hot water tank needs replacing.

When is a hot water heater recommended over a tankless water heater?2023-08-28T13:04:53-04:00

While many people are opting for tankless water heaters for their Ottawa homes, for some people hot water tanks remain the best solution. The main reasons people choose to remain with a hot water tank system over a tankless system are:

  • Lower up-front costs: Compared to tankless water heaters, hot water tanks are cheaper to install up-front.
  • Hot water tanks deliver heated water faster: Because the water is already heated in the tank, it does not need even a second to heat up.
  • They deliver more consistent water temperature: This is especially true when multiple water outlets are being used at the same time.
  • They provide hot water during power outages: Electric tankless water heaters cannot provide hot water during power outages. Hot water tanks will be able to deliver heated water during an outage.
What advancements have been made with hot water tanks?2023-08-28T13:05:44-04:00

In older versions of gas storage water heaters, less than 50% of the fuel energy reached the point of use, meaning a very substantial waste of natural resources and your money. In recent years there have been dramatic improvements in the efficiency of hot water tanks, improving their efficiency and reducing the amount of energy wasted. The most efficient models of hot water tanks are energy star rated models, which are held to a high standard of efficiency. Some hot water tanks are now designed to pair with radiant floor heating, allowing for some of the most efficient and comfortable heating solutions for your home. If you want to take advantage of the advancements in hot water tank technology, contact Advanced HVAC today. We will discuss the options with no pressure to buy.
