Tankless Water Heaters
The Best Tankless Water Heater Toronto Specialists
There are many misconceptions about tankless water heaters. You will hear comments such as “I had a house in England that used those”, or “I can’t imagine how much money I waste heating a big tank of water all the time, even when I’m not home”. I have even heard contractors tell consumers that a tankless water heater will pay for itself in 5 years. A tankless water heater is a good idea but an educated consumer is an excellent goal.
High Efficiency Tankless Water Heater will Save Approximately 30%
A condensing high efficiency tankless water heater will save approximately 30% over a standard water heater. If we estimate that a home uses $400 per year of natural gas to provide domestic hot water your savings with a tankless would be $120 per year. And unless gas is predicted to rise at atrocious rates (which it is not) it will take a very long time to pay for a tankless water heater. And remember, a tankless water heater must be cleaned annually by flushing the unit with a descaling solution which adds maintenance costs.
When was the last time you had someone clean your water heater?
“They provide instant hot water.” No they do not. A tankless water heater is not an instant water heater. It takes longer to get hot water to your tap, not much longer, but slightly longer.
So why would anyone install a tankless water heater?
Because it will supply an endless stream of hot water. Can’t fill your soaking tub? With a tankless you can. Like to have long showers? Go ahead. You will never run out of hot water.
Need space? Is your living space too congested and you want to finish the basement? The tankless water heater hangs on the wall and can be put in a cupboard.
Bathrooms close by? Exhaust fans too close to the water heater. A tankless water heater is sealed combustion. It brings fresh air in from outside for combustion. The flame is never exposed to the indoors. You can rely on its safe operation.
The Most Recent Toronto Tankless Water Heater Technology
Tankless water heaters are sophisticated, with the most recent technologies used to create the highest standards in efficiency and comfort. Compared to tank style low-efficiency water heaters, they are the greenest way to go when it comes to heating water.
There are good reasons to install tankless water heaters. They are good for the environment. They provide endless hot water. You can have more than one shower running at the same time. You have precise control of water temperature. Did I say they are good for the environment? I guess that is reason enough.
