Takagi tankless water heaters were the first to enter the North American market around 1995. Although they had more than perfected the tankless having manufactured their systems in Japan for over 50 years prior. Takagi is committed to quality and innovation and they have done a good job with excellent reliable systems. It would not be a mistake to install a Takagi tankless in your home.
Takagi has a few popular tankless models and here in Ontario you would probably be installing one of these systems.
- The T-H2 – Green, 2nd generation condensing tankless, 4.6 GPM (40 degree ground water temp) and can be vented with PVC piping. It’s a great system that meets the NRCan audit program requirements for high efficiency and qualifies for a $375 Government grant.
- Takagi T-K3 – Low flow activation rate, link up to 4 units in conjunction for increased hot water flow, extra long vent pipe applications (50 feet with 5 elbows). Expect around 4.1 GPM at a 40 degree temperature rise. Does qualify for NRCan audit rebates of 300$ plus.
- T-K4 Takagi is a new tankless that can be installed indoors and out, designed for easy venting and lots of hot water production. The T-K4 can produce up to 8 GPM, impressive for a tankless water heater. Built in power venting system.
