Frequently Asked Questions


Gas water heaters are valued for their rapid heating and cost efficiency, making them suitable for high-demand settings. Electric models are preferred for their straightforward installation and dependability, especially in areas without gas. Tankless units offer on-demand hot water and energy savings, ideal for spaces with limited room and varying demand levels, fitting both residential and commercial applications.

The best choice depends on your specific needs, including energy availability, hot water demand, space constraints, and budget. Residential properties often prioritize convenience and efficiency, while commercial settings might focus on capacity and operational cost. A professional assessment can help determine the most suitable option.

Indicators that it might be time to replace your hot water heater include its age (most last 10-15 years), rust or corrosion on the tank, persistent leaks, insufficient hot water, or increasingly frequent repairs. For commercial properties, efficiency drops and inability to meet demand despite regular maintenance also signal the need for an upgrade. Upgrading can improve energy efficiency, reduce operational costs, and ensure a consistent hot water supply for both residential and commercial settings.

Installation starts with selecting the right unit for your needs, followed by disconnecting the old system (if applicable), properly connecting the new one to your property’s energy source and water supply, and ensuring it complies with local codes and standards. For commercial properties, considerations also include meeting higher demand and adhering to stringent safety regulations.

Regular maintenance, recommended at least once a year, can significantly extend the life of your water heater and ensure its efficiency. This includes checking for leaks, flushing sediment from the tank, inspecting the anode rod, and testing temperature and pressure relief valves. Commercial systems may require more frequent checks due to heavier usage.

If you notice signs of malfunction, such as inconsistent water temperature, discolored water, or unusual noises, contact a professional immediately. Prompt repairs can prevent further damage and restore proper function. For commercial properties, addressing repairs quickly is crucial to avoid operational disruptions.

Yes, tankless water heaters can be an excellent choice for commercial properties, especially when configured to meet the high demand and continuous use typical in such settings. Their energy efficiency and space-saving design make them adaptable to various commercial needs, from restaurants to apartment buildings.

The ideal water heater for a condo depends on available space, energy sources, and hot water needs. Tankless water heaters are often favoured for condos due to their compact size and on-demand heating, which saves both space and energy.
