At North Wind HVAC we are always at the forefront, looking for most efficient water heaters on the market. If you are in the market for a water heater, a hot water tank is the most popular option in Ontario. The most popular choices are gas powered models for homes that have gas lines. Propane and electrical hot water tanks are also available for rural areas. Although fairly efficient, hot water tanks are less efficient than tankless systems, because a hot water tank continuously requires energy to keep the water warm, regardless of usage.
Tankless water heaters have recently begun appearing in Canadian market. Although available and used for quite some time in Europe and Asia, tankless water heaters have only recently advanced to efficiency, safety and reliability levels demanded by Canadian consumers. The upfront cost of tankless water heaters is higher than that of hot water tanks, but they are more efficient. Moreover, if hot water is not being used, the system will be off and not use any energy.
We also offer affordable annual maintenance plans to ensure your water heating equipment is performing at its maximum efficiency – trouble free, without any unwanted surprises.
