Tankless Water Heaters
Improve Your Home’s Energy Efficiency
Because they only heat water as necessary rather than constantly storing hot water in a tank, tankless water heaters can help you improve your home or business’ overall energy efficiency. Depending on how much water is used in your home on a daily basis, tankless water heaters can be up to 34% more efficient than conventional hot water tanks.

How It Works
Conventional hot water tanks consist of delivery pipes, heating elements and insulated tanks to hold the water. When the water in the tank reaches a certain level, the heater will automatically prepare more hot water to fill the tank; however, this can stall heated water from reaching you when you need it.
Tankless water heaters are quite different from conventional models in that they only consist of delivery pipes and a heating system. When a hot water tap is turned on with a tankless water heater in Calgary, cold water travels through a pipe into the heating unit. Using gas or electricity, the water is heated as it passes through the heating unit. You won’t have to wait for a tank to fill up with hot water, which allows tankless water heaters to deliver a constant supply of hot water to your home.
Benefits of Tankless Water Heaters
Tankless water heaters are able to avoid standby heat loss that’s associated with storage water heaters. This higher efficiency is just one of the benefits available to you if you choose to purchase a tankless water heater. The main ways you’ll benefit from a tankless water heater include:
Efficiency: Tankless water heaters are also called on-demand systems because they only heat water when you need it. This makes it an efficient option.
Eco-friendly: Being on-demand systems also makes tankless water heaters the more eco-friendly option because there’s no wasted energy pre-heating water any time a tank gets low.
Space: In comparison to conventional hot water tanks, tankless water heaters are very small. If you live in a compact space, a tankless water heater could be perfect for your needs.
Longevity: With life expectancies reaching 20+ years, tankless water heaters have easily replaceable parts that extend their lifespans indefinitely.
Long-term savings: Tankless water heaters are a much more expensive option up front, but over time they’ll save you money on your energy bills due to their efficiency.
