Tankless water heaters are a fairly new technology in the world of HVAC, but they’re really gaining momentum in terms of popularity. Most homes in Toronto or around the Greater Toronto Area have hot water tanks that constantly heat a supply of hot water for use in your home. While this is a tried and true way to ensure you and your family have hot water, these hot water tanks aren’t the most efficient way to heat water for use in your home.

Tankless water heaters are much more efficient than your existing hot water tank because they only provide hot water when you need it. A traditional hot water tank keeps water heated in a big tank in your basement all day and night. This means that it uses energy to heat water while you’re sleeping and while you’re at work all day. Heating hot water while you’re not using is simply a waste of energy. By comparison, tankless water heaters are much more efficient because they only heat water when you need it. That means they only use energy when you turn on a hot water tap.

Is a Tankless Water Heater Right For You?

There are a number of things that need to be considered in order to understand if a tankless water heater is right for you and your family.

Longer Service Life

Typically, tankless water heaters last longer than traditional hot water tanks, which also require more maintenance.

Compact

Tankless water heaters are much smaller than traditional water heaters. That means you’ll have more room in your basement or garage for storing other things. When you’ve got a family extra space is essential.

Environmentally Friendly

As mentioned, tankless water heaters use much less energy than traditional hot water tanks. That means they’re either using less natural gas or electricity, which reduces your carbon footprint. Tankless water heaters are an easy choice if you take the environment into consideration.

Easy To Repair

Have you ever had a traditional hot water tank burst and flood your basement? It’s inconvenient to say the least,and the result is having to completely replace the unit. With tankless water heaters if something happens to go wrong you can count on an experienced and knowledgeable Tankless Pro tankless repair technician to fix it. There are always available parts and repairs take less than a day. There are a very small number of scenarios that would result in having to actually replace a tankless water heater that needs repairs. Additionally, tankless water heaters always come with a warranty so most repairs won’t cost you a dime.

Cost Efficient

Remember when we said that tankless water heaters only heat water when you actually need it? That also means that they only use energy when you actually use them. As a result, they save you a ton of money each month on your energy bills. By comparison, hot water tanks constantly heat water for your home, which also means they’re constantly using energy. Much less efficient to say the least.

Unlimited Hot Water

So, you’ve got a big family and everyone has to shower, do the dishes, do the laundry and lots of other things that require hot water. If you rely on a traditional hot water tank then you know how quickly it can run out of water with lots of people constantly needing hot water. As you may have guessed, tankless water heaters don’t run out of hot water because they don’t actually store any. They heat water as you need it and with so many makes and models available there’s always one to suit the needs of any family.

Common Problems In Tankless Water Heaters

Prior to calling a tankless water heater expert, there are a few things that you can check on your own. These are not repairs, but simply things that can help a technician understand what might be wrong with it, or if there is a simple solution.

  • Very little or no hot water
  • An irregular water temperature that’s either super hot or not hot enough
  • A burner that won’t ignite
  • A noisy burner
  • Very low water pressure

One thing that isn’t on this list is having to wait for hot water or not getting instant hot water. This isn’t specifically a problem. Some tankless water heaters have a recirculation pump installed on them, which allows more instant hot water.
