Looking for a new hot water tank to replace your existing system? There are three basic types you should consider.
Gas Hot Water Tanks
Gas tanks are faster heating than their electric counterparts but come with a higher upfront cost and shorter lifespan. These types of water heating systems also require venting to the outside of the home.
Electric Hot Water Tanks
Electric heaters are usually less expensive than gas heaters and are a good option for those who don’t have natural gas at home. A drawback is they are slower to heat the water and you can sometimes run out of hot water in the middle of a shower!
Tankless or On-Demand Water Heaters
Save Up to 70% on your Hydro bill with a tank-less water heater that only heats up water when you need it making them more energy efficient versus conventional tanks.
