Types of hot water heaters

The instant electric water heater produces hot water on demand, it has no tank. Ideal for powering a remote water point, garage, basement, etc. It has the advantage of requiring very little maintenance since the absence of tank limits the accumulation of limestone.

Storage gas water heater

The storage gas water heater works on the same principle as its electrical equivalent, however, the water in the tank is heated by means of a burner and not electricity. The gas water heater is powered by butane or propane.

The gas water heater has many advantages over the electric water heater:

  • Water is heated faster than an electric model.
  • Heating your water with gas is less energy intensive for equivalent performance.

It also has some disadvantages:

  • It is more polluting than the electric water heater
  • Generally, more expensive than an electric water heater.

Instant gas water heater

The instantaneous gas water heater allows you to get hot water quickly and unlimitedly. The water is heated by a burner and distributed immediately.

The installation of an instantaneous gas water heater is strictly prohibited in the following rooms:

  • Bedrooms
  • Living room
  • Bathroom

Although the instantaneous gas water heater gives you unlimited hot water, this type of water heater does not guarantee a constant temperature and can be problematic when used with a thermostatic valve, for example.

Regardless of the type or size of the hot water heater, we are ready to install or repair your hot water system. We are experienced individuals who have come together to offer your brilliant plumbing services.  We remind you that the installation and maintenance of water heaters require excessive knowledge of plumbing. The installation of this type of equipment is hardly doable by homeowners and we strongly recommend that you contact a professional if you are handling a hot water system.
