Water Heater Repair St. Albert
You can expect a standard water heater to run for between 8 and 12 years. During these final years, they can tend to become less efficient and far more prone to leaks and breakdowns. You can stretch the lifespan of a water heater by scheduling regular maintenance so any problems are caught before they happen, or by replacing the water heater when it reaches the 10 year mark.
Here are a few signs your water heater may need to be repaired or replaced:
- The tank is leaking
- The tank isn’t heating the water at all or to the same degree it normally does
- The tank does not make as much hot water as it used to (for showers, laundry, dishes, etc.)
- Calcium and debris are coming through the line
- There’s a clearly visible drop in water quality
- The tank fittings are corroded

Many people will wait until their heater stops working before looking for a new one or seeking repair options, but there’s a clear advantage to getting your tank looked at on a regular basis. However, if your tank does fail or you’re ready to upgrade to a new one, there are a couple of distinct advantages:
As a water tank ages, it naturally becomes more expensive to operate as its efficiency lessens. Hot water tanks tend to use around 25% of your home’s energy and can draw more as it gets older. A newer tank will give you better energy efficiency and save money on your utility bill.
Hot Water Recovery Rate
A new tank will recover water much faster than an older model meaning you’ll have access to hot water on a more consistent basis.
Water Heater Installation St. Albert
Many hot water tanks are negatively impacted by sediment buildup that occurs over time and particularly in older model tanks. Calcium, magnesium, lime scale, and other minerals buildup on the sides of the tank and around the burner whenever water is heated.
When these sediments get filtered out, they form a barrier that settles on the burner and reduces the performance of the heater and if left too long can be very difficult to repair. If left too long, the only option may be to replace the water heater entirely.
We’re more than happy to inspect your existing hot water heater and determine whether it could benefit from a service or maintenance or requires replacement.
There’s no point in putting the productivity of your home and day-to-day function at risk. If you feel your hot water heater isn’t working properly, give us a call and we’ll help you right away!
