Hot Water Tank/Tankless Installation

Hot Water Tank/Tankless Installation

When selecting a new water heater for your home, choose a water heating system that will not only provide enough hot water but also that will do so energy efficiently, saving you money. This includes considering the different types of water heaters available and determining the right size and fuel source for your home.

The two types of water heaters are: Tank and Tankless

Benefits of Tank Water Heater

  • Lower installation cost: Tankless systems are more expensive upfront to have installed, sometimes as much as three times the cost of a storage water heater. Although tankless systems will earn back the extra expense with energy savings, your immediate budget plans may make a standard water heater a better option.
  • No natural gas line changes: Natural gas is the best option for a tankless system, but the current natural gas piping in your home may be insufficient for the needs of the new tankless water heater. This can mean higher costs for installation. But a storage-tank water heater can simply hook up to the current gas supply with no alterations.
  • No circuitry changes: What about an electric-powered system? The situation is much the same: tankless systems may require installation of a new circuit to handle the amount of power they need, but storage tank heaters will be ready to go with your current electrical power load.
  • They don’t need a high flow rate: “Flow rate” is how much water you need to be heated at one time. If you do not have a household that places a large demand at one time on the water heater, the flow rate may be too low to activate a tankless water heater. Storage water heaters have no minimum flow rate, however.
  • Immediate hot water: Because storage water heaters have a supply of heated water standing by for use, you won’t have to wait long for the water to reach the taps. With tankless water heaters, there can be significant lag time, which is both inconvenient and wasteful of water.

Benefits of Tankless Water Heater

  • Long-lasting: Thanks to rugged construction and materials, they typically have a long life expectancy and operating costs are usually very low. Plus, because most models have replaceable parts, there’s less of a long-term impact on the environment.
  • Endless hot water: While storage tanks are limited by the size of the tank – as you’re coldly reminded early in the morning after all your kids shower before you do – tankless water heaters can provide continuous hot water as long as there’s fuel or energy to heat it.
  • Energy conservation: As soon as water sits in a tank, it begins to lose heat and that means a traditional water heater is continually turning on and off to keep water warm and ready to go. With tankless, because water is heated quickly and only when it’s needed, it’s more energy-efficient. In fact, our condensing models start at an energy factor of 0.94, which means 94% of the fuel is being used to heat the water and only 6% is wasted. A tankless water heater can lower your energy bill.
  • Space saving: With the high price of real estate, many of us are tending to live in smaller homes and tighter space means that a giant 40- or 60-gallon storage tank that’s 5 feet high and 2 feet wide isn’t exactly convenient. A tankless water heater, on the other hand, hangs on a wall up and out of the way, providing more usable space on the ground – imagine more space freed up in your cottage, bathroom or basement.
  • Reduced eco-impact: Tankless water heaters not only reduce consumption of non-renewable fuel sources, they’re repairable with replaceable parts, unlike traditional water heater tanks that often need to be replaced entirely.
