Have you ever looked at your old hot water tank and wondered, ‘Why am I paying to keep all of this water hot when I’m not even using it?’
Every time the 40 gallons of water in the tank cools a few degrees, the burner comes on to heat it back up. Seems wasteful, doesn’t it?
This is why more people are switching to a tankless system. These compact units mount on a wall, taking up very little space. They have a much longer lifespan than a typical hot water tank (I’ve tuned up 30 year old tankless heaters that still run like a top). And – best of all – they don’t use any gas until you need hot water!
When you open a hot tap, the flow sensor in the unit signals the burners to ignite and heat the water as it flows through the unit. When you close the tap, the unit shuts off. You only heat the water you’re actually using. This translates to greater efficiency and more money staying in your pocket.
With energy costs only ever heading in one direction, it makes sense to look for ways to reduce energy consumption in our homes. Additionally, we try to reduce the environmental impact of our day-to-day lives.
Making the switch to a tankless system is a step in the right direction, both economically and ecologically! Call us for a no-obligation quote @ 604-217-2268 or you can send a message through this page. We look forward to helping you reduce your utilities costs and your carbon footprint.
