Tankless Water Heater vs Hot Water Tank

A water heater and a hot water tank are very different. You can usually tell by looking at the appliance which one you have. Is it a large cylinder made of a type of metal sitting on your floor? You probably have a hot water tank. If it’s a smaller box, which is usually mounted on the wall, chances are that’s a tankless water heater.

Tankless water heaters only use energy when you turn on the tap, saving you money on electricity. On the flip side, a hot water tank has fewer parts and, therefore, less that can go wrong. There are benefits to both and we recommend speaking with our staff if you are unsure which to choose for your next upgrade.

We will be talking specifically about repairs and replacements for tankless water heaters in this blog.

My Water Heater is Damaged—What Do I Do?

If you notice leaking, an inconsistent stream of hot water, or other warning signs of tankless water heater issues, you may have a problem. If you find out there is an issue with your water heater, the first step you should take is to call 416-893-5717 to have someone look at it on-site. We offer services to anyone in the Greater Toronto Area experiencing water temperature issues and can be there in around an hour. Once someone is notified, cut off all water to the unit or all water to the house if you are unsure of where the water heater shutoff valve is located.

The technician who arrives at your door will ask you about yearly maintenance, which will help us determine if the water heater should be replaced or not. Yearly maintenance may look as simple as a total flush to remove calcium buildup and could end up saving you the cost of replacing your tankless water heater in the future.
