What is the downside of a tankless water heater?

While tankless water heaters have many advantages, there are a few drawbacks to consider. The initial cost is a significant disadvantage. Tankless water heaters are more costly to buy and install than conventional tank-style heaters. This initial outlay may be prohibitive for some people or households with limited financial resources.

Tankless water heaters can also be more difficult to maintain and service. While conventional tank-style heaters usually call for only an annual flush to get rid of the accumulation of sediment, some tankless heater units might need periodic descaling to avoid mineral buildup from interfering with performance. This extra maintenance step may be required in areas with hard water, which can cause scaling over time.

Finally, because tankless water heaters rely on natural gas or or electricity to operate, they could lose their ability to provide hot water in an instance of a power outage. This can be inconvenient, particularly in areas susceptible to recurring outages or during severe weather.

What is the average lifespan of a tankless water heater?

A tankless water heater’s average lifespan may differ depending on variables like unit quality, patterns of use, maintenance, heat and the quality of the water. A well-kept tankless water heater can last 15 to 20 years on average.

It is important to note, however, that this estimate is not a guarantee. Some tankless water heaters may have a shorter service life as a result of factors such as improper installation, insufficient maintenance, or harsh water conditions. However, with adequate upkeep and regular service, most tankless units can last up to 20 years.

Is it worth it to replace a water heater with a tankless water heater?

The decision to replace your water heater with a tankless water heater is based on a variety of factors, including your individual requirements. Consider these important considerations to help you make a well-informed choice moving forward:

  • Cost savings: Tankless heaters may have greater initial expenses, but they can save money in the future due to their energy efficiency benefits.
  • The available floor space in your home: Tankless units are small and ideal for small spaces.
  • Your home’s demand for tankless hot water systems: Consider whether a tankless unit can meet your family’s hot water needs.
  • Convenience: Tankless heaters provide ongoing hot water supply, which is particularly useful in high-demand situations.
  • Infrastructure: Changes involving power, heating water, gas, or venting may be required during retrofitting.

Providing you With Answers & Solutions
  • How are homes heated in Ottawa and when should the heat be turned on?

    The majority of homes in Canada are heated by furnaces. Of these, some use oil or propane-based furnaces, but most are natural gas-based. While most homes are heated by some type of furnace, you may find other heating methods in local homes, such as baseboard heaters, solar heaters, heat pumps, and boilers.

    As a homeowner, it’s up to you to decide when to turn your heat on. In essence, when your home’s temperature is uncomfortably cold, that’s likely a sign to switch your heating system on. According to the World Health Organization, the ideal indoor temperature is between 18 and 21 degrees Celsius.

  • How much does HVAC cost in Ottawa?

    This question is impossible to answer as there are many different HVAC services available to local residents. For example, the cost of installing a central air conditioner isn’t the same as repairing a furnace or heat pump. The type of service – whether it be an installation, repair, replacement, or maintenance – as well as the type of unit (heat pump, furnace, air conditioner, boiler, etc.) are two factors that will determine the cost.

    Other factors that will impact how much your HVAC service costs include the size of your home, the age and condition of your home’s existing ductwork (if applicable), and the extent of the problem, in the case of repairs. The best way to find out the price of an HVAC service in Ottawa, Ontario is to request a quote from Anchor Home Comfort.

  • How do I know if my HVAC system is working properly?

    If you notice any of the following signs, it might signal a problem: uneven temperatures, problems with humidity levels, a rattling or buzzing sound coming from your furnace, or an unexplained spike in your utility bills.

    If these signs sound familiar, or you want peace of mind knowing your HVAC system is working as it should, contact Anchor Home Comfort. We will send a certified technician to inspect your HVAC system. We even have a 24/7 emergency line, and there is no extra charge for emergency, weekend, holiday, or after-hours service calls.

  • How often does my HVAC system need maintenance?

    Homeowners should book a maintenance service for their HVAC system once a year.

    Maintenance services are one of the most effective preventative ways of ensuring your HVAC system is functioning optimally and preserving your system. Having your air conditioner, furnace, heat pump, or whatever unit you use annually assessed by a professional extends its lifespan, makes your system more energy efficient, and can save you money down the line.

    Anchor Home Comfort offers some of the most thorough HVAC maintenance services in the Ottawa region. During the maintenance service, your technician will do the following: inspect the thermostat and heating system and calibrate it as needed, lubricate all moving parts in the system to decrease friction, clean and replace the air filter, if necessary, test the system’s safety controls and startup cycle, and complete a written analysis of their findings.

  • How often should a furnace or air conditioner be replaced?

    Modern furnace and AC units are designed to last between 10 and 20 years. In contrast, if your home is outfitted with a new, modern AC unit, it is more likely to last between 15 and 20 years.

    Signs your furnace or AC might need to be replaced include uneven heating and cooling, a rise in utility bills without explanation, visible rust or cracks on your existing unit, humidity problems, or buzzing or rattling sounds. If any of these signs sound familiar, get in touch with Anchor Home Comfort. We can answer your questions or send a technician to your home to inspect your HVAC system. Please note that we offer same-day and next-day installations of both heating and cooling systems in Ottawa.

  • How much does it cost to install central air in Ottawa?

    Many Ottawa homeowners prefer central air conditioners. Unlike their window or portable counterparts, central air conditioning tends to be more effective. With Ottawa summers only getting hotter, AC isn’t just a luxury anymore. If you’re thinking of installing central air conditioning in your Ottawa home, you’re probably wondering how much it’s going to cost. This ultimately depends on several key factors, such as the size and layout of your home, the age and condition of your home’s existing ductwork, and the size and model of air conditioning unit you buy. Beyond the initial price of installation, you should also budget for the cost of running the unit. However, if you’re replacing an older central air conditioner with a new model, then your monthly energy bills may decrease due to greater energy efficiency.

    Overall, the best way to find out the cost of installing a central A/C unit in your Ottawa home is to request a free quote from Anchor Home Comfort.
