What Are the Types of Hot Water Tanks?

Hot water tanks are used to store and maintain hot water for heating or domestic use. Gas/oil water heaters and electric water heaters both last around 10-15 years. Gas/oil water heaters are less expensive to run monthly than electric water heaters but cost more upfront. Electric water heaters are more efficient than gas/oil water heaters and are better for the environment because they emit less waste and use less energy.

Why Is My Hot Water Tank Not Heating Up?

If your hot water tank is not heating it could be because there’s no power connected to your electric water heater, no gas in your gas water heater, no oil or electricity for your oil water heater, a blocked fuel line, or a leak in the tank. There could also be issues with your thermostat, relief valves, nuts, bolts, or water pressure. Gas-powered hot water tanks can experience problems with their pilot lights and electronic ignitions that could cause the heater to stop working. If you know your hot water tank is nearing the end of its lifespan, the tank may not be heating because it’s become old and inefficient compared to new models.
