What Kind of Hot Water Tank Is Right for You?

Tankless Water Heaters

Advantages
  • Endless hot water supply, ideal for larger homes and families.
  • Energy efficiency leads to lower heating costs per litre of water.
  • Longer lifespan of at least 20 years with proper maintenance.
  • Reduced risk of basement flooding due to absence of large reservoirs.
  • Space-saving design, as they can be mounted on walls, freeing up floor space.
Disadvantages
  • Higher upfront cost compared to traditional tank models.
  • Regular maintenance required, including yearly check-ups and scale buildup removal.

Hot Water Tanks

Advantages
  • Lower installation cost as most homes are already equipped for tank hookups.
  • Initial purchase price of tanks is generally lower compared to tankless models.
  • Consistent water temperature with a large volume of hot water ready for use.
Disadvantages
  • Less efficient as tanks continuously work to maintain water temperature.
  • Increased risk of flooding due to potential leaks or corrosion over time.
  • Shorter lifespan, typically lasting 10 to 15 years.
  • Requires more space, occupying over a dozen square feet for installation and maintenance.

How Much Energy Does a Water Heater Use?

Your faucets, showerheads and plumbing appliances consume a lot of hot water. In fact, the Natural Resources Canada states that water heaters account for roughly 17% of the average Canadian’s home energy costs, second only to space heating.

Save on Energy Bills With a More Efficient Water Heater

You could save on energy costs by investing in more efficient equipment, such as an ENERGY-STAR certified water heater or a tankless unit. These solutions could save you up to 34% on water heating costs by generating hot water on demand and eliminating standby heat loss. Save more by upgrading your old hot water appliances to high-efficiency models.

Frequently Asked Questions

Which type of water heater is best for my home?

The type of water heater that’s best for your home depends on a variety of factors. Determining the one that’s right for you involves a thorough assessment of these factors, including your home’s size, energy sources available, and usage patterns. Our team will work closely with you to analyze these aspects and recommend the most suitable type and model of water heater tailored to your specific needs.

Are tankless water heaters more efficient than traditional models?

Tankless water heaters are typically more energy-efficient than tank models. By heating water only when needed, they eliminate the standby heat loss associated with storing hot water in a tank. This efficiency can translate into cost savings over time, making tankless models a compelling long-term solution.

What is the installation process for a new water heater?

Our technicians manage the entire installation procedure, from removing the old unit (if necessary) to expertly installing the new water heater. We ensure a seamless integration with your home’s plumbing and electrical systems for optimal performance.

How long does a water heater installation take?

The time it takes to install a water heater depends on the type of water heater and your home’s configuration. In most cases, installations are usually completed within one day.

What are the signs that my water heater may need to be replaced?

Signs that your water heater may require replacement include fluctuating water temperatures, leaks around the unit, unusual sounds during operation, or a decrease in heating efficiency. Contact CK Mechanical if you suspect you need a new water heater.
