    Or you may need to install an expansion tank to allow the hot water to expand as it heats up.

    This expansion gets progressively more as the weather, and thus typically the incoming water temperature, drops.

    The lower the incoming water temperature, the greater the difference it must be heated. Thus the more expansion the system has to accommodate.
