What is a tankless hot water heater
The name says it all! A tankless hot water heater is a high efficient appliance that instantaneously heats your cold water into hot water as you use it. Your traditional hot water tank stores within itself and heats an entire tank full of water. Typically around 40 to 50 gallons worth. Regardless of if you are using that water at the time or not the classic tank will keep that water hot and ready to go which means its always working even if you are not using it! Tankless hot water heaters simply heat the water up as the water passes through them.
They do not store any water at all and are only ever working when someone is using hot water. Not only is this much more efficient because you are using far less natural gas but this also means that you will never use up all of your hot water! Fill a tub multiple times, have multiple people showering for way longer than they should, run multiple cycles of the laundry machine or dishwasher and even still anyone in your house will be able to have a long hot shower immediately after.
Everything you need to know!
Unlimited Hot Water
Tankless hot water heaters heat the water up as it runs through its heat exchanger rather then storing hot water. This means regardless of how much hot water you use the water coming out of your taps will always be hot!
Did you know that tankless is cheaper than replacing your hot water tank? Let us explain! Your typical hot water tank warranty is 6 years. We know, as plumbers, that this means the manufacturers who provide these warranties are not confident that their hot water tanks will survive longer than this. What we are seeing out in the field is a typical life span between 6 and 12 years on a tank. A tankless water heater made by Navien will last you between 18-20 years if installed correctly and properly serviced when needed. That is more than double the expected lifespan of a tank.
So with the major difference in lifespan it’s fair to say that whether you buy two hot water tanks in 20 years or a single Tankless water heater in 20 years you will have spent around the same price! Only difference is that one provides endless hot water, is highly efficient and will cost less in utility bills! By swapping your tank out for a tankless you are now eligible for a $1,000.00 rebate from Fortis BC. After deducting your rebate from the installation cost and taking into consideration the difference in life expectancy between a tank and a tankless system we can confidently say the tankless option is the more affordable option in the long run.
Your average hot water tank is about 58 – 60% efficient. This means that about 58-60% of the gas burnt to heat your hot water is effectively converted to heat. Tankless hot water heaters are 96% efficient. On top of that the tankless unit will only fire up when you are actually using hot water because it heats as needed. This increases efficiency even further!
Switching from a tank to a tankless increases the amount of space in your mechanical room. Because the tankless is wall hung and much smaller than a tank there will be much more space to move around in there when needed.
Save on Utilities
Because of the fact that they are 96% efficient and because they only work when hot water is being used your utility bill will be reduced as a result.
