The hot water that comes out of your tap isn’t something that you think about very often, but the day your water heater needs replacing will change all of that. Installing a new water heater when your existing one is done shouldn’t be as straightforward as getting the newer model of what you already had. Most homes have a water tank that stores a ton of water and keeps it hot 24-7, but that isn’t an efficient way to keep water hot. Sure you will always have hot water, but does your tank need to be keeping water hot all day while you’re at work, or while you’re on vacation? Not at all. Consider how much energy is wasted by simply heating water that’s just waiting to be used by you and your family. Many people in Toronto have made the switch to tankless water heaters, and it’s something we recommend our customers consider doing too.
Tankless Water Heaters 101
In a nutshell, tankless units are exactly what they sound like. They heat water for use in your home without a big tank or reservoir. This is done as cold water passes through one end of the unit and hot water comes out the other end when demand is engaged. That is when someone in the house runs a tap or appliance that calls for hot water. When this happens the tankless water heater turns on and heats up the water to a safe preset temperature.
It’s really that simple, and you don’t have to worry about all the wasted energy of heating water all day long waiting to be used. On top of that, you will never run out of hot water or find yourself waiting for another tank of water to get warm. A tankless water heater can continually heat water as long as you need it and as much as you need.
