//Hot Water Tank FAQs

You can always contact our team with questions about hot water tanks, hot water heaters, or anything HVAC. Here are some questions our customers often ask!

How Do I Know My Water Heater Needs Repair?

Sometimes it’s obvious when your hot water tank needs a repair: there’s no hot water! But not all water heater malfunctions are so easy to spot. Small problems could be reducing your hot water supply slowly, which will eventually become a bigger issue.

The following signs mean it’s time to call a professional:

  • Your hot water tank is making strange or loud noises.
  • Leaks or moisture are coming from your tank-style water heater.
  • Your water heater pilot light constantly goes off.
  • Your hot water temperature is inconsistent.
  • Your hot water supply is discolored.


How Long Does a Tank Water Heater Last?

Tank-style water heaters are one of the most economic solutions for delivering warm water to your taps. A properly installed hot water tank should last 10 years or more with the right care and maintenance.

Hot water tanks wear down over the years as minerals and sediments in the water supply slowly erode the tank. A water filtration system can help extend the life of your new tank-style water heater.


Why Am I Not Getting Hot Water?

If your tank-style water heater isn’t supplying your kitchen and bathroom with hot water there are a couple of things you can check for:

  • Make sure the pilot light is lit. If you are unable to light the pilot, there may be a gas supply issue.
  • Make sure your water heater thermostat is at the right temperature setting.

If these items appear to be operating normally, get a pro to investigate. You could be running out of hot water because your tank isn’t big enough or needs repair. Call us at Cencal to have a water heater technician evaluate your hot water headache.

Should I Install a Hot Water Tank or Tankless Unit?

Deciding between a tank-style water heater or a tankless system is a decision that depends on your home’s hot water demands. Hot water tanks are more economical to install but generally don’t last as long.

Families that use a lot of hot water may want to consider a tankless water heater, which will never run out of hot water supply. Our install experts can help you weigh the options and review the benefits of each type of water heater.
