Water heaters use a heating source to raise the temperature of incoming cold water from a municipal main or well. The heated water is stored in a tank and distributed on demand to showers, bathtubs, sinks and other water-using equipment in the home. There are several types of water heaters are available, and your choice may be dependent on a number of factors. The more common water heaters in the GTA include:

  • Storage tank water heaters
  • Tankless water heaters

Storage Tank Water Heaters

Storage tank water heaters are by far the most common type used in Canada. These systems heat and store water in a tank so that hot water is available to the home at any time. As hot water is drawn from the top of the tank, cold water enters the bottom of the tank and is heated. The heating source can be electricity, gas or oil.

Energy-efficient gas-fired storage tank water heaters may include additional design features, such as:

  • electronic ignition, which saves energy by eliminating the need for a continuous pilot light
  • powered exhaust
  • improved control of flue baffle and flue damper, which reduces heat loss through the flue
  • condensing heat exchangers, which greatly improve the overall efficiency
  • Oil-fired water heaters with state-of-the-art burners, which offer high-efficiency vent performance and minimal stack losses

Tankless Water Heaters

Tankless water heaters, also known as on-demand or continuous flow water heaters, only heat the water when needed, which is beneficial. When water flow is detected the water heater turns on, and when the demand for hot water ceases the unit shuts down to conserve energy. This is much more energy efficient than the traditional tank-style water heater which keeps all of the water in the tank hot at all times. Other benefits of tankless water heaters are that the hot water supply is endless so you’ll never run out of hot water, and they take up much less space than a tank-style water heater. Tankless water heaters can also be used to heat your home when combined with a hydronic air handler. However Tankless water heaters  are not for everyone.  Be aware that effective flow rates for hot water at the desired temperature will vary depending on the temperature of the water coming into the tankless heater.  In Toronto that temperature is often around 45 degrees Fahrenheit resulting in much lower flow rate at the ‘ideal’ desired temperature.  Be sure your service provider calculates  the proper expected flow rate for your community.
