We are so happy that we called Joel and his team to repair our furnace. We were without heat for a week or so. We had contacted a few companies and none were able to properly diagnose our problem, instead we had 3 parts replaced and our heating system still did not work! Hundreds of dollars later we were lucky to be referred to Knowledge HVAC (and that is the perfect name for them, because they are quite knowledgeable!) Joel was able to come the same day and diagnose the problem for us. We hired him and his team to repair our furnace the next day, they were fast and efficient and we now have some heat finally! We are so happy we called them. I give them 5 stars for excellent service! I will definitely call them again if needed and will recommend them to my friends and family. Very pleasant experience, very nice guys! Reasonable rates.

Water Tank Replacement in BC will be determined by a number of factors. In most cases, customers would wait until their hot water tank is broken. However, there are many other signs that customers can look for which will indicate a replacement. Some of these signs to look for are:

  • Leaking water tank.
  • Smelling of the water.
  • Lack of hot water.
  • Dis-colour water.
  • Tanks over ten years and having lots of issues.
  • Breaking down of the tank material.
  • Signs of calcium on or around the tank.

Note: Hot water tank and installation or water heater replacement should be done by a qualified hot water heater technician. This is important because incorrect installation can cause damage to homes or individuals.

Reasons for Hot Water Tank Servicing​

As experts in hot water tank servicing in BC, we understand the importance of regular maintenance to ensure your system’s optimal performance and longevity. While hot water tanks are designed to provide reliable hot water, they require periodic servicing to address potential issues and maintain efficiency. This comprehensive guide will explore why hot water tank servicing is essential, highlighting the benefits in  this crucial maintenance process.

Regular hot water tank servicing plays a vital role in extending the lifespan of your hot water tank. Over time, mineral deposits, sediment buildup, and corrosion can occur within the tank, affecting its efficiency and functionality. By scheduling routine servicing, professionals can identify and address these issues promptly, helping to maximize the lifespan of your hot water tank.

One of the primary reasons for hot water tank servicing is to maintain optimal performance and efficiency. Sediment and mineral buildup within the tank can hinder heat transfer, forcing the system to work harder to heat the water. This inefficiency can lead to increased energy consumption and higher utility bills. Professionals can clean and flush out accumulated deposits by servicing the tank, ensuring efficient operation and lower energy costs.

Neglecting regular servicing can result in costly repairs or even complete system breakdowns. Minor issues, such as leaking valves or faulty thermostats, can escalate if left unaddressed, leading to more significant problems. Through regular servicing, professionals can detect and resolve minor issues before they escalate, helping you avoid unexpected breakdowns and costly repairs.

Hot water tanks can accumulate bacteria, rust, or other contaminants over time, compromising water quality and safety. Regular hot water tank servicing includes flushing and cleaning the tank, which helps remove harmful substances and ensure the delivery of clean and safe hot water to your taps and fixtures.

Many hot water tank manufacturers require regular servicing for warranty coverage. Please service your hot water tank as the manufacturer recommends to ensure the warranty is maintained, leaving you responsible for any future repairs or replacements. By adhering to the servicing requirements, you can protect your security and have peace of mind knowing that your investment is protected.

Understanding Hot Water Tank Installation and Hot Water Tank Replacement Costs​

Additional equipment or accessories may be needed, such as expansion tanks, valves, or insulation, depending on your installation or replacement requirements. These factors can affect the overall cost but are crucial for ensuring a properly functioning hot water system.

The installation or replacement process’s complexity and the time required for skilled labour will impact the cost. Our technicians work efficiently to minimize labour costs while delivering exceptional service and expertise.

How do I know a hot water tank is properly installed?

Proper hot water tank installation in BC is crucial for ensuring its efficient and safe operation. As experts in the field, we understand the importance of addressing common concerns related to hot water tank installation. This comprehensive guide will provide detailed information on determining if a hot water tank is installed correctly. By understanding the key indicators and following recommended guidelines, you can have confidence in the installation and enjoy reliable hot water in your home.

A. Understanding Location Requirements:

Proper installation begins with selecting an appropriate location for the hot water tank. Manufacturers provide guidelines regarding the necessary clearances from combustible materials, walls, and other appliances. Ensure the tank is positioned in a well-ventilated area and meets all safety requirements.

B. Inspecting Venting and Exhaust Systems:

Hot water tanks produce combustion by products that need to be safely vented outdoors. During installation, check for the correct venting system, including appropriate pipe materials, clearances, and proper connections. Improper venting can lead to hazardous conditions and should be addressed immediately.

A. Assessing Water Supply Lines:
Properly installed hot water tanks should have secure and leak-free water supply connections. Check for tight fittings, appropriately sized pipes, and the absence of any leaks. Adequate water pressure and flow should be ensured for optimal performance.

B. Verifying Drainage and Pressure Relief:

Hot water tanks require a pressure relief valve and a suitable drainage system to prevent excessive pressure buildup and potential tank failure. Ensure the pressure relief valve is correctly installed and connected to a drain line meeting local plumbing codes.

A. Validating Electrical Wiring:
For electric hot water tanks, ensure the electrical wiring is correctly installed, with appropriate grounding and connection to the designated power supply. Faulty electrical links can lead to system malfunctions and safety hazards.


B.Ensuring Gas Line Installation:Gas-powered hot water tanks require the proper installation of gas lines, including appropriate pipe sizing, leak-free connections, and adherence to local building codes. It’s essential to have a licensed professional handle gas line installations to ensure safety and compliance.

A. Inspecting Tank Insulation:
Proper insulation helps maintain water temperature and energy efficiency. Check that the tank has sufficient insulation, including insulation jackets and other recommended insulation materials. This helps reduce heat loss and lower energy costs.


B. Assessing Energy Efficiency Features:

Look for energy-efficient features such as high Energy Factor (EF) ratings and insulation improvements, contributing to lower energy consumption and reduced operating costs over time.
