There are a number of different brands of tankless water heaters below you will find a short synopsis of each of each tankless system. We have also orded them from top to bottom in terms of which we recommend first to home owners throughout Toronto, the GTA, and the Golden Horseshoe.
Easily one of the biggest suppliers of tankless units, they are known for stability and reliability. Of all the experience we have had with tankless water heaters Rinnai’s Tankless is the most reliable unit on the market today. Most of Rinnai’s reliability is derived from the fact you have to be licensed and trained by the manufacturer to even be able to install and sell these units. This enforcement ensures that every tankless is installed correctly and to code.
Rheem has really picked up their socks over the last 5 years and this has propelled them into second spot. They have innovative tankless systems that have proven their reliability and durability with features no other tankless manufacturer offers. Make sure that if you are looking at upgrading to a tankless you check out the Rheem tankless series.
This one is often spelled incorrectly as “Navian”. It has been know as the the most efficient tankless with their units reaching 98% efficiency. They have had reliability issues in the past but they are on to the 4th generation and all of the past issues have been cleared up. A Navien will make you proud you own a tankless water heater.
Not the most popular brand of tankless but it is a nice unit none the less. Reliability is lacking a bit but it makes it up in its efficiency.
Commonly sold in Home Depots, these tankless systems are good units but they are so frequently incorrectly sized and installed that they have developed a bad reputation due to this.
If for some reason I couldn’t get a Rinnai tankless I would choose the Takagi tankless model for sure, high efficiency, reliability, and easy venting. What more could you ask for?
