If your hot water heat is beyond repair and you need to replace it as soon as possible, or you are considering an upgrade to your current water heater with one that performs better and is energy efficient, tankless heaters are an excellent alternative.
Over the last five to 10 years tankless hot water heaters have become popular across the U.S. and Canada after being commonplace in home throughout Europe for decades. Referred to as “instantaneous” heaters by many, the tankless hot water system heats water only as you need it. This makes it ideal for a hot water heater replacement in Edmonton AB, as your hot water is just a turn of the knob away.
Why Choose Tankless
The tankless water system heats your water quickly and is energy efficient since it does not draw any energy unless someone is bathing or using the hot water in one of the faucets in the house. In contrast, older style water heaters use energy to keep a tank of water inside the unit at a programmed temperature at all times. This means that the heating element turns on as soon as the water temperature in the tank falls below the stipulated temperature. The tankless heater is therefore much more energy efficient and pays for itself very quickly in your monthly savings for gas and/or electricity.
Types of Tankless Heaters
Both gas and electric tankless heaters are available. They are excellent for either a primary or secondary source of hot water in a residence.
Tankless water heaters do not have a reservoir to store water, making them very compact. This is perfect if a second water heater is needed for an apartment off the main house or if the basement is finished and has an apartment. They provide the hot water for the apartment and do not take up much space.
Tankless hot water heating systems are not only cost effective but they are much smaller making them easier to install even in the smallest of spaces. Visit Capital Plumbing & Heating for more infomation.
