Choosing the Right Water Heater

Water heaters are responsible for heating your water and supplying it to household fixtures and appliances, such as dishwashers, showers, and more. To find the right water heater for your household, it’s important to understand the different types of water heaters and features.

Tank Vs Tankless Water Heater: Which Is Better?

Tank water heaters store water and heat it on demand, while tankless water heaters heat the water using coils, without storing it. Both gas and electric water heaters are energy efficient, but the annual savings you experience will vary depending on such factors as local energy rates, water hardness and your consumption level. Tank water heaters are generally less expensive and can accommodate high-demand households, while tankless are more expensive up front, but can reduce your energy usage by around 30 percent.

Storage Tank Water Heater

  • Stores water and heats on demand
  • Energy Efficiency is slightly lower than tankless, with an average 20% savings annually
  • Requires considerable storage space for standard 50-gallon tank
  • Must be connected to the main plumbing line of your home
  • Installation can be costly due to labour
  • Typically includes 5 – 10-year warranty (with options for extension)

Tankless Water Heater

  • Heats water on demand without storing water
  • Delivers high energy efficiency consumption with up to 30% savings annually
  • Compact design requires little space and can be wall mounted
  • Can be connected directly to the point of use in your home such as kitchen sink or shower
  • Installation can be less costly if replacing or upgrading an old tankless water heater
  • Typically includes 5 -10-year warranty (with options for extension)

Frequently Asked Water Heater Installation Questions

When should I replace my water tank?

  • Most hot water tank replacements should be done around the 10-year mark. At that point, while your system may still last a few more years, they may no longer be covered under warranty and will often decline in performance, reliability and efficiency.
  • An aging hot water tank that is performing poorly is likely to cost you in the form of higher utility bills.
  • Tankless water heaters tend to last longer than hot water tanks and can be expected to last 15-20 years before they need to be replaced.

Which type of water heater should I install?

  • Consider fuel source (gas or electric), storage capacity (up to 80 gallons), tank type (tank or tank-less), and manufacturer warranty options. Also consider the hot water heater installation cost or water heater replacement cost.

Do I have the option of choosing my own type of water heater?

  • Yes. We offer many options at The Home Depot in Stoney Creek. We carry a variety of Rheem traditional tank water heaters in both gas and electric.

What are some additional water heater features to consider?

  • Depending on your needs, inquire about:
  • Product efficiency ratings: Energy efficient certification by ENERGY STAR® indicates the water heater has been tested and approved for energy efficiency. Check for the Energy Star score or rating to determine whether your new water heater is energy efficient.
  • First-hour hot water delivery: The quantity of water that the heater will deliver at 140°F, starting at a temperature of 40°F within the first hour of operation.
  • Recovery time: Recovery speed is the amount of time it takes to heat a full tank of water.
  • Automatic shutoff valves: An automatic shutoff valve helps prevent fires by shutting off the flow of gas if there’s movement in the ground or the gas flow experiences a sudden, sizeable increase.
  • Self-cleaning units: Automatically fight lime and sediment buildup to lengthen tank life and maintain peak efficiency for a longer period.

What is the difference between gas or electric?

  • Gas usually costs less to operate but is a slightly larger upfront investment and less efficient.
  • Electric costs more to operate but is more efficient and offers higher energy-factor ratings.

What is the difference between conventional storage tank and a tankless one?

  • A conventional tank constantly heats stored water, is good for high usage demands and is economical. It can be stored in a closet, basement or garage and has a capacity of up to 80 gallons.
  • A tank-less water heater has lower operating costs, uses less space and can reduce energy consumption by as much as 30%. It can also provide continuous hot water at a precise temperature; however, it does require more upfront investment and may need venting.

What is a permit and why do I need it?

  • Permits are governed by local cities and municipalities and are required to ensure that a local plumbing inspector is dispatched to the site as a third party to review the workmanship of the installer.
  • This is meant to ensure that the install has been executed safely, is in line with local municipality, city or provincial plumbing codes, and ensures that the quality of workmanship by our licensed professional installers meets plumbing standards.
  • Permits are required on most water heater installations and pricing varies by province, city and municipality.
  • Our installation professionals can review the permit process and pricing with you and answer any questions you have.

How will I know the service provider for my water heater installation is authorized by The Home Depot?

  • Our Installation Service Professionals carry an orange The Home Depot Home Services badge that feature a picture and authorization number. If this badge is not visible, ask to see it.
  • This badge means they have undergone a thorough background screening process and are properly licensed and insured.

What is the best way to ensure a longer life for my water heater?

  • Flush your water heater once per year to help remove sediment or rust.
  • This can greatly increase the life of your water heater beyond the manufacturer’s warranty timeframe.

Does The Home Depot install water heaters purchased separately?

  • No. The Home Depot’s water heater installers will not install water heaters purchased separately, whether from a Home Depot store or elsewhere.
  • For the purposes of liability and warranty coverage, the water heater installer can only verify the quality and condition of equipment that they themselves supply and install.
