Hot Water Heater Installation in Toronto
Water Tank Installation
Water heaters are the most ignored component of a home comfort system – until they break. Remember, the average lifespan of a water heater is 15 years. It is worth spending some time familiarizing yourself with the different types of water heaters available to you. We can help you with several choices from the most efficient tankless units to the simplest storage tanks. We supply and install, rent, and service a wide array of domestic hot water equipment.
Conventional Water Heater Installation
Conventional water heaters are basic storage tanks. We install gas fired and electric hot water tanks. Gas fired tanks are significantly cheaper to operate than electric tanks. They are either natural draft tanks venting up through a chimney liner, or power vented tanks venting through the side, front, or back wall of your home. Electric tanks are sometimes used when there is no easy way of venting a gas fired water heater. Typically, Toronto homes use either 40 or 50 gallon tanks. The average life expectancy of conventional hot water tanks is 15 years. Keep in mind, it’s always better to replace your tank before it leaks all over the basement.
We will usually install professional grade Bradford White water heaters when a client is purchasing their own tank. We also have a Water Heater Rental Programme for clients who wish to have monthly billing and service coverage.
Indirect Water Tanks for Hot Water Heating Systems
Indirect water heaters are the most efficient way for houses with hot water heating systems to store domestic hot water. An indirect water heater is not an appliance. Instead, your boiler heats the water in the tank, so if you have a 95% AFUE high efficiency boiler, you also have a 95% efficient water heater. Indirect tanks are highly insulated which minimizes the need for the boiler to come on and maintain the temperature of the water in the tank.
Indirect water heaters are more expensive than conventional tanks, but are significantly more efficient. These are typically used for larger homes or families that have a high hot water demand, or in multi unit dwellings.
