Tankless hot water heaters provide an endless supply of hot water at a static temperature, no fluctuations, no running out of hot water and they are 30 – 50% more energy efficient than your current gas or electric hot water tank. A tankless water heater shuts off automatically when there is no demand for hot water and it takes up very little space since it is installed up off the floor, on the wall.
Installing a tankless hot water heater with a high-energy star rating could earn you an energy rebate depending on the rating and any LiveSmart BC programs in effect at the time of installation.
With a Rinnai, gas or propane on demand hot water heater installed in your home there will be no standby loss of heat, which is what happens with a hot water tank. The life expectancy of an on-demand hot water heater is 20 years, not the typical 10 +- of a hot water tank.
Rinnai is a leader in the manufacture of high quality on-demand tankless water heaters. More than 30 million of their tankless water heaters have been installed worldwide.
Navien’s condensing on-demand water heaters have achieved a 98% energy star rating. You cash in on the energy savings and receive the quickest payback. Low exhaust temperatures and low emissions allow for the use of PVC or other plastic venting systems, which reduce the cost of installation. A leak detector is built in and the keypad lock stops accidental temperature changes.
Gas tankless water heaters are much cheaper to run than electric models. We don’t recommend installing an electric on-demand hot water system due to the high demand placed on your electrical system and the high cost to run.
At GoodSense Plumbing & Drain Cleaning we take into consideration your water usage; the number of people in your home, the number of bathrooms and kitchens before we recommend the size of on-demand heater you need to most efficiently fill your needs.
