A tankless water heater has many advantages over traditional water tanks, so we’ll explore what exactly they are. We’ll also go over the steps you can take to start changing your water heater to a tankless unit and how our service technicians can measure the right size you need. 

What Are Some Advantages To Choosing A Tankless Water Heater?

Tankless water heaters offer many advantages over traditional water heaters. The tankless units, also known as on-demand water heaters, use activated high-power burners that rapidly flow water through a heat exchanger, which is then directed towards showers or taps without storage in a tank. Tankless units only flow hot water when you need it through a faucet. 

They’re distinct from traditional water heaters in that they’re less common and don’t store water in a tank fitted with pipes. Traditional units store water until it’s required and can deliver hot water to any place where it’s needed. 

Tankless water heaters are typically powered by natural gas, propane, or electricity, depending on the type of unit you’ve installed. They’re also highly energy-efficient, with tankless units creating fewer litres of hot water per day than traditional tank heaters. On average, whenever a household installs a tankless water unit system for their home, the efficiency rates jump up between 27% to 50%. This makes them ideal for homes with large families that use a lot of hot water throughout the day. 

The average lifespan of a tankless water heater is also longer than a traditional unit. Standard water heaters can last for about 10-15 years at most while tankless heaters can work for around 20 years or more. This, however, all depends on how much maintenance is performed on them to prevent breakdown. 

Tankless water heaters are also much smaller in size and can be installed on a wall or small space. They don’t require a separate tank and can be installed outside if your home is small. The hot water it provides is also instant and comes out only when you need it. You can have more peace of mind knowing that a continuous supply of hot water can be provided at any time. 

Now that we’ve gone over the advantages of a tankless water heater, let’s explore some of the initial steps you can take to start the transition 

How Can I Change My Tank From Water Heater To Tankless?

The initial cost of buying and installing a tankless water heater can be pricey, but there are existing provincial rebates to mitigate such costs. The rebates serve as incentives by the government to encourage homeowners to update their old appliances to a more efficient ones. Moreover, you’re paying for the added durability of the unit and avoid dealing with constant repairs or replacements. That being said, you will need the right permits, tools, and heater, as well as the money to cover the related costs.

After estimating the costs and your budget, the next step should be to gather the right tools. We highly recommend not trying to replace the water tank unit yourself, but rely on our service technician team to handle the job. In a typical installation, they’ll often use power drills, reciprocating saw, hole saw, tape measure, and screwdrivers among other tools. They also keep themselves protected with safety goggles and gloves while adhering to specific guidelines set in the tankless system’s manual and industry standards. 

At Constant Home Comfort London, our service technicians have the right tools for the job. Additionally, they also have the knowledge and experience to accurately calculate the size of a tankless water heater for your home.
