Edmonton Hot Water Tank Repairs & Replacements
To keep hot water running for your sinks, showers, dishwashers, and other appliances, it’s important to make sure your hot water tanks are in top condition all year long. If your water tank needs repairs and replacements, the inconvenience of not having hot water while you wait for servicing can be very uncomfortable. In Edmonton, hot water tanks are necessary to heat up the cold water surging through your home’s pipes. These tall, metal cylinders are responsible for heating and storing all of the hot water for your home. Though they look simple enough, hot water tanks are actually comprised of several working parts.
The biggest part is the tank itself. It usually holds 40 to 60 gallons of water at a time. The outside is insulated to keep the heat in. Unless there is a leak that needs to be fixed, the inside is subject to high water pressure—between 50 and 100 pounds per square inch!
Other important parts of Edmonton’s hot water tanks include the thermostat, the heating mechanism, and the dip tube. A water heater has several valves: the shut-off valve, the drain valve, and the pressure relief valve. The heat-out pipe and the sacrificial anode rod complete the list of parts necessary for a functional water heater.
If any of these parts stop working, it could mean trouble for your water tanks in Edmonton. If you notice any problems with your hot water, it’s best to call in the professionals to take a look.
