Are You Spending Too Much for Hot Water?

Are You Spending Too Much for Hot Water?

Picture this:

It’s a Monday morning and your alarm so rudely wakes you up at a time so early that the moon was even surprised to see you. Snow is falling, the wind is whipping, and temperatures are a very low -8 degrees Celsius. You stumble out of bed and head into the kitchen to brew some coffee. While it brews, you begin to layer and bundle up for the long, cold day of work ahead of you. You spend all day in the frigid air with the temperature reaching a high of -3 ℃ for the day, just dreaming of getting home and escaping the elements. As your workday comes to an end, you begin to dread doing the same thing the next morning.

There is nothing better than coming in from a long day of working in the cold temperatures of a Canadian winter than running a piping hot bath and relaxing with a warm cup of decaf coffee. But with the thought of the cost of your traditional 60-gallon, or roughly 227 L, water tank looming over you, it can be hard to relax in the hot water that it is providing.

In Canada, the average person uses 75 L of hot water per day and the average Canadian household uses 225 L. The most common uses for water come from faucets (cooking and hand washing), showers, dishwashers, and clothes washers. *

A solution to this problem is switching to a tankless water heater. This prevents you from paying for 60- gallons of water to be heated that you may not use. With a tankless water heater model, water is heated as you need it, and energy is only used to heat the water that you need. This helps saves you money and energy in the long run, even if the initial install costs more than a traditional in ground tank.

Choosing the tankless water heater option will also save space in your home while providing you more control over the temperature of your water. Because the water is heated as you need it, there is no need for a large tank to store the excess water. Tankless water heaters also provide controls, touch screens, or remotes to allow you complete control of the temperature of your water. The Eccotemp SmartHome Mini Tank models can even be controlled by voice commands!

With a tankless water heater, you are also eliminating the need for water damage insurance. No matter if you choose and indoor or outdoor tankless water heater to install, the need for any insurance is eliminated because the tank is not in the ground. If your tankless water heater is properly maintained and descaled, it can also outlast the lifespan of traditional water heaters, saving you the time, money, and hassle of replacing your tank.
