Tankless Water Heater - How Buying a Tankless Water Heater Makes You a Genius

Buying a tankless water heater makes you smart. They’ve been common in Europe and Asia for decades, but they didn’t take off in the same way here in North America until recently.

Tankless water heaters are getting more common in new home builds and home upgrades every month as homeowners look for ways to save money and save the environment.

How does a tankless water heater work?

Tankless water heaters superheat cool water on demand. Water comes directly from the home water system, not a storage tank. This is great for a number of reasons:

  • They give you exactly the amount of hot water you need. The supply can be endless. If you need to take a month long shower, you can. And you also don’t pay to heat an ounce of water you don’t use.
  • They are energy efficient. More on this below.
  • They save space in your home.
  • They last longer than tank-type units.

Families like yours across Canada are switching to tankless. Are you ready to make the change?

Exactly the amount of hot water you need

With an old tank-style water heater, families are limited by the size of the tank. When a family of four needs to shower for school or work around the same time of the morning, the last two family members are usually left out in the cold, literally. A cool shower in December isn’t a great way to start the day.

By heating the water in real time through a powerful heat exchanger, tankless water heaters give you all the hot or warm water you need. Even if your teenage kids continue with their marathon morning showers, you can still enjoy a comfortable shower (and your overall water heating bills might even drop without any changes in the morning routine).

Efficient for you and the environment

Families interested in saving on the monthly energy bill love the potential reward of choosing a tankless water heating system. Heating water only as it’s needed means your showers, dishwashers, washing machines and other hot water consuming activities are much more energy efficient.

That can result in as much as $68 saved every month if your bill is $200. No small savings.

A little extra space in the house

Tankless water heaters are similar in size to a standard medicine cabinet or couch cushion. Yours can hang on the wall, freeing up floor space without cutting back the amount of water for your morning showers.

The heater could even be installed on the wall of your washroom, although most of our customers opt to install in the basement, where the old water heater was.

Either way, you end up with some extra space somewhere in the house. More storage space is always good.

Tankless lasts a long time

The monthly payment for your tankless water heater (if you elect to finance) will be more than for a conventional storage tank water heater. However, over the long term, the expense balances out, and you end up saving some serious change.

Tankless water heaters can last up to twice as long as traditional units, which offsets the initial higher purchase price. Most tankless water heaters have a life expectancy of more than 15 years, along with easily replaceable parts that extend their life much longer.

You can finance yours for about the same cost as a rental (and maybe less)

Renting a water tank, especially a tankless unit, is  very expensive. But most homeowners stick with the rental because they don’t know a better option exists.

A tankless heater from a big rental company costs about $40 a month. Forever. We’ve heard of families paying for the rental for more than 20 years. That’s a $9,600 water heater. Wow!
