Tankless maintenance is important, just like it is for your car. A tankless would probably run for a good 10 years without you doing a thing to it, but it will lose a lot of efficiency over time. To maintain tankless efficiency you need a service tech to do some basic maintenance tasks. One of the most important is flushing the system.
Toronto has hard water and this causes build-up of deposits on the inside of the tankess. With the addition of heat the process is accelerated creating a sort crude insulation. This prevents the thorough transfer of heat to water and causes your tankless to run harder, longer and costing you more money. Flushing a tankless is a quick and cheap task that removes the build-up and barrier created by the hard water.
I would also recommend you check the fan and fan grill for dirt and debris build-up that can cause internal overheating. The next thing I would look at is the igniter, do a quick visual inspection looking for any apparent damage or potential issues.
If the tankless isn’t giving you any issues or warning I don’t think you need to any other steps to maintain it. Again though, the flush is probably the most important as it keeps your system in top performance.
If you are in the Greater Toronto Area send us an Email if you have any further questions or interested in having your system flushed.

Pickering is a great city, it water is taken from Lake Ontario and this is conducive to a new tankless as it has a relatively low dissolved solids content. Pickering has water that reduces the amount of buildup on the inside of a tankless heat exchanger. A tankless has a lifespan of over 20 years.

Some people are very resistant to change, I don’t know what it is but some will fight it until the end of time. A recent Toronto HVAC company posted a large article on their website outlining all the negative aspects of a tankless system and how they would never recommend it nor install one. We install both systems and you know what, they both have their positives and negatives. I hope to detail the issues a little further here and let you decide which system you want for your home.
There is no big savings – This is very subjective, here are the facts.
Conventional Tank Water Heater
Which system is better on your pocket book? It’s going to be up to you as there is a number of factors, including the price of natural gas, which will likely only rise over time.
Upfront costs are high - Yes, it will cost you more for a tankless than a conventional tank, your homes particular usage will significantly affect a breakeven point and whether a tankless is a good idea or if you should stick with a conventional tank system.
High Tankless Maintenance Costs – Your conventional tank has basically zero maintenance barring anything breaks but it loses 2-3 percent efficiency a year. You can flush a conventional tank and regain some of its efficiency with the removal of scale build-up. A tankless is usually flushed once every year or two, which consists of simply pumping vinegar through the system for 30 minutes or so. All tankless systems should have flush valves already installed and this will maintain the extremely high efficiency ratings. I wouldn’t say that a tankless has higher maintenance costs, its just that no one does it for a conventional tank.
Electricity Use - A tankless does need electricity to run sensors, a vent fan, and a starter, this is true. Some tank type water heaters need zero electricity, but if you have a power vented conventional tank system your water heater is using just as much electricity as a tankless would.
The fact of the matter is that a home really needs to be analyzed to see whether a tankless makes sense or if the home owner would continue to benefit from a conventional tank water heater. I won’t make claims on how much can or can’t be saved because any number would be a wild generalizations and any company that does, shouldn’t be trusted.

The grant money available to home owners that switch from a regular conventional tank to the newer tankless system will disappear on MARCH 31st 2011.
This a great program that the Government has in place to help home owners offset the cost associated with upgrading old heating, cooling, insulation and various other systems within a home. Upgrading old conventional tank type water heaters was one of the major targeted areas that saw huge grants to promote the removal of these systems. A tankless system is designed to have a lifespan of over 20 years, where as a tank will be lucky to last 12-15 years. The efficiency comparison between a storage tank system and a tankless is roughly around the 40% mark. Yes a tankless will be more expensive but it will save you money, and even though that money is hard to see a tankless systems is a proven money saver.
If your living in Ontario and just hearing about this program now your OK you can still participate you just need to act fast visit home eco energy audit to book an audit as soon as possible the auditor will explain everything you need to know.

Pricing a tankless for your home from this website is nearly impossible; we just can’t do it accurately.
There are too many unknowns:
We do offer free in-home consultations where a REP can come out to your home, free of charge, and assess whether a tankless can be installed. Our REP is instructed to leave you a detailed quote of both the brand and model of tankless suggested as well as detailed installation costs for you to review. The quote is good for 30 days so take your time reviewing.
Having a tankless installed by a professional ensures your unit is correctly supplied and sized to maintain the highest tankless efficiency. Of course a professional will always stand behind their work should problems arise, which we always have and will continue to do.

As most people know the Eco Energy rebate program has ended but there are still rebates and incentives available.
If you’re interested in getting a tankless water heater for your home then you may still be eligible for rebate and grants offered to home owners to offset the higher cost of a tankless. Each of the programs have different prerequisites or requirements, we are here to help you sort through the paper work.
This is a very hard question to answer because some municipalities are offering different incentives than others. On top of that some rebates only apply to certain manufactures so we will need to know which brand you are installing. Needless to say the incentives make a tankless much more appealing than a conventional tank even before you start to add in the energy savings a tankless provides.
Tankless water heaters are a little more difficult to install and are subject to more stringent venting codes. We require that a representative visits your home and assess all factors involved in the installation. We call this our preapproval stage. This is great time to ask any questions regarding a tankless manufacturer, installation, or issues you may be wondering about. Our company representative is able to provide full quotes and prices should you decide your interested in having a tankless installed.
