From taking showers and doing laundry to washing your hands, water heaters make daily life easier. However, these appliances are a massive contributor to your home’s utility bills. If you want to cut costs, reducing your energy usage is an effective way. Unlike traditional water heaters, tankless water heaters, also known as on-demand water heaters, heat water only when you need it. Therefore, they are very energy efficient. The benefits of going tankless are numerous, including increased energy efficiency, space-saving capabilities, and an endless hot water supply.
Making the Decision
It’s essential to consult with an expert when selecting a tankless water heater for your house in the Brampton area. Our crew at Metro Air Limited has over 90 years of combined experience, and we’d be happy to help you with your selection. One way to ensure that you enjoy the benefits of a tankless water heater is by purchasing a unit of the right size to suit your home’s needs. It’s also best to work with an authorized Rinnai dealer an expert for the installation to ensure the unit is installed correctly per the manufacturer specifications.
Tankless water heaters are far more energy-efficient than conventional water heaters. A conventional tank water heater wastes energy because it continuously heats the water stored in the tank while it is waiting to be used. Picture a giant tank of water sitting on your stove that is constantly being heated and cooled whether it is needed or not. This means all day every day, even when nobody is home. Tank water heaters heat water constantly and then reheat the stored water when it cools down.
By contrast, tankless water heaters only heat water when it’s needed. When you turn on your hot water tap, that’s when a tankless unit goes into action and instantly heats the water. When you close the tap (or your washing machine finishes its cycle) the tankless unit turns off. Very simple. Imagine it as a small furnace hanging on your wall, ready when you need it. A tankless device doesn’t waste energy heating water when it’s not needed and this reduces energy costs.
The space-saving aspect of tankless water heaters is perfect for homeowners who are renovating their basements. A standard 40-60 gallon hot water tank is about five feet tall and takes up a lot of floor space. By contrast, a tankless water heater is roughly the size of a travel suitcase and is mounted on the wall, up and out of the way. By replacing their standard energy-guzzling standard hot water tank with a small energy-saving tankless unit they are gaining much more real estate and flexibility for their renovation designs.
High Distribution Rate
Because a tankless water heater produces hot water on demand, you can simultaneously perform several activities that require hot water. For instance, you can operate your washing machine, wash your dishes and take a shower all at once without running out of hot water. Tankless water heaters are designed to provide high-volume distribution.

Don’t worry because when it’s time for the next person to have a shower they too can have a long hot shower because a tankless hot water heater never runs out of hot water.
