Although energy rebates have been drastically reduced this year there are still some great reasons to consider going tankless.

In addition to saving the average homeowner $200 per year in gas consumption and 2 pounds of carbon PER DAY! We now have the new condensing tankless units available in Canada at a price that most homeowners can afford.

What does this mean to you the Ottawa home owner:

Condensing Tankless units are 96% to 98% efficient

Regular Energy Star Tankless units are 82% efficient

Energy star hot water tanks are only 62% efficient but run all the time keeping 400 pounds of stored water hot 24/7 where as a tankless only turns on when you need it.

Regular hot water tanks are only 54% to 62% efficient with the same draw backs as the energy star hot water tanks.

Tankless water heaters take up less space as they are wall hung units the size of a small suitcase.

Our tankless water heating systems last 20 to 25 years - that means you are saving over 7 TONS of carbon! That's the same as 2 cars! Just imagine what the world would be like if everyone had one of these installed?

Tankless improves home value

 *WARNING: If you have a tankless water heating system installed by anyone who does not have a plumbing license AND and certified G2 gas license you could loose more than you bargained for just to save a few dollars!

If your tankless system leaks (water OR deadly carbon monoxide exhaust OR dangerous & explosive natural gas) and it causes either death, life threatening health risks or property damage; your homeowner insurance policy, health insurance policy, and life insurance policy may be negated. You can also be charged with fraud and wilful life endangerment if a tenant becomes ill or dies because of the improperly installed hot water tank in your building.

When it comes to the lives of your family and the safety of your most expensive asset (your home) why take the risk? It is better to pay a few dollars more to have it professionally installed so you can sleep at night knowing your family is safe.

How safe is your home?
