Water Heaters

Hot water heaters are more cut-and-dry than boilers, as they have just one job: heat potable water. This water is then used for showers, washing machines, to wash dishes, and more.

Different Types Of Water Heaters

  • Conventional

    Conventional hot water heaters have a tank where water is stored and heated, either using gas or electricity. Fresh, cold water enters through the bottom of the tank, and is heated to a specific temperature where it remains ready for use.

  • Tankless

    Tankless hot water heaters, also known as “on-demand” water heaters, heat water very quickly, which makes up for not having any hot water stored. What’s more, they require less space.

  • Atmospheric Vent

    With this system, fuel is heated and it warms the water. The pressure of the combustion pushes excess gas upwards and out of your chimney. Enough fuel must remain in the tank once the water is heated to allow enough pressure to push these gases upwards and out. The biggest advantage of this kind of venting is that no electricity is needed, so the water will still heat even if the power goes out.

  • Power Vents

    These water heaters use a fan to push the excess gases through the venting pipes and outside. Because they use a fan, the gases are not as hot as those in older tanks, and a lighter, plastic-type of pipe can be installed. Power venting heaters are more energy-efficient because all the fuel that is used goes to heating the water. The use of the fan allows for a more consistent pressure to push the dangerous gases out of your home, so there is less chance of something going wrong to cause an explosion.
