Understanding the differences between tankless water heaters and traditional units can go a long way in making the right choice for your home. Yes, tankless models are known for their high efficiency, traditional water heaters are still installed every year in Toronto and the GTA. Here’s why.

Benefits Of Traditional Water Heaters

Finding the right system in your home to heat your water is important. You want something that makes sense for your lifestyle and those who live with you. Tankless might be good for some, but it’s definitely not in every home in Canada. Take a look at the benefits of choosing traditional water heaters instead.

Budget

Sticking to your budget in Toronto and the GTA is a good practice for being a homeowner. With that said, going with a traditional hot water heater over a tankless unit is a great way to avoid spending more than you can afford. Traditional models are typically less expensive.

Planning to move

Another reason to skip tankless would be if you’re planning to move in the near future. Replacing your hot water system is a long-term investment – one you’ll want to reap the rewards from for years to come.

Someone always at home

If you have a larger family or multiple people living in your home with you, than traditional water heaters might be the right fit. They hold enough water for getting things done around the house, and will refill as water is used throughout the day. With someone being home, they can simply take advantage of this by doing laundry or the dishes at different times to make the most of the water built up.

Less maintenance

Another cost-saving benefit of this type of hot water heater is that it doesn’t require maintenance as often as a tankless model might. Traditional tanks can be maintained every other year instead of annually.

Space isn’t an issue

Finally, tankless models are known for saving space. If you live in a home where space isn’t an issue, then a tank in your basement shouldn’t really discourage you from choosing a reliable traditional water heater.

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.
