Toronto and the GTA might be a big place to live, but that doesn’t always mean space is readily available. When it comes time to think about hot water tank replacement options, your choices come down to traditional and tankless. Both have their pros and cons but don’t worry, we’ve outlined the differences below.
Traditional Water Heater VS Tankless Water Heater
As a replacement option, a traditional system makes sense if you have:
- An existing traditional system currently
- A tight budget
- A plan to move sooner than later
Traditional water heaters are usually more affordable and tend to suit homeowners just fine. They include a large tank that holds water and heats it accordingly. Due to their size, they’re most commonly located in basements. Naturally, if you have a traditional system already in place, installing another as its replacement would make sense… but there is another option.
A tankless system is a great hot water tank replacement option, especially in Toronto and the GTA. They:
- Take up less space
- Are more efficient
- Are more of a long-term investment
- Are more stable
If you’re looking for an efficient hot water tank replacement, you should consider tankless water heaters. They are significantly smaller in size as they don’t require the larger tank of a traditional system. Instead of taking in water and heating it all at once, tankless systems only heat the water you need for an on-demand option. This allows hot water to flow freely in your home without having to wait for a tank to refill and then heat up. Plus, without the need for a tank, there is no risk of it bursting under pressure and potentially flooding an area of your home. However, the one area of concern with tankless systems is their cost. Usually listed at around double the price of traditional water heaters, tankless is seen as more of a long-term investment for people looking to stay in their home for years to come.
