PHILIP W – Calgary
Our hot water tank stopped working. We called Action Furnace in the evening and Andrew came the following morning. He inspected the unit, presented options and we decided to replace the tank. He was professional, explored all options – and did not pressure us, which was very appreciated. The service was truly exceptional – we heartily recommend Action Furnace.

Hot Water Heater Installation FAQs
You can always contact our team with questions about water heaters, or repairs. Here are some questions our customers often ask!
What are the different types of hot water heaters?
Action Furnace sells both hot water tanks and tankless water heaters. The key differences between these systems are:
- Hot water tanks are ideal for homes that need a large supply of hot water and have room to store the tank (generally in the basement or a utility room). They are also relatively quick to install and easy to maintain.
- Tankless water heaters are compact and highly energy-efficient, making them ideal for smaller homes where a continuous supply of hot water is needed.
How does a hot water tank work?
A tank-based hot water heater uses a heating element or burner to heat water that is stored in a tank until it’s ready to be used. The water is then distributed through your home or building as needed.
How is a hot water heater installed?
Action Furnace follows a careful process to ensure your hot water tank will be installed correctly. This process may include:
- Running new gas or water lines
- Connecting the hot water heater to your existing plumbing
- Ensuring that the system is properly vented
- Testing the system once the installation is complete
How long does it take to install a hot water heater?
Installation times for hot water heaters vary depending on the type of system being installed, the size of your home or building, and the condition of your existing plumbing. On average, it can take several hours to a day to install a hot water heater—but if your installation is likely to take longer, we’ll let you know in advance so you know what to expect.
How much does it cost to install a hot water heater?
The cost of installing a hot water heater will vary depending on the type of system, the size of your home or building, and the condition of your existing plumbing. Most hot water tanks cost between $800 and $2,500 to install, but contact Action Furnace and we’ll be happy to provide you with an accurate estimate for your project, backed by our No Surprise Guarantee on pricing.
Can I install a hot water heater myself?
We do not recommend trying to install a hot water heater without professional help, as this can create a safety hazard, damage your plumbing, and void your new water heater’s warranty. For best results, contact Action Furnace and let one of our licensed professional technicians perform your installation properly.
What are the benefits of installing a new hot water heater?
New hot water heaters are considerably more energy-efficient than older models, which results in lower bills and offsets the initial costs of installation over time. Newer hot water heaters can also reduce the need for costly repairs and provide a more reliable source of hot water for your home.
What should I do to maintain my hot water heater?
A hot water heater requires regular maintenance, including flushing the tank, checking the anode rod, and inspecting and tightening the connections. We do not recommend attempting these tasks on your own—instead, contact Action Furnace once a year to have your water tank serviced by our experienced professionals.
