Water Heater Installation – Tankless or Tank
If you’re ready for a new water heater, you may be wondering which one is right for you.
They both have advantages, and the truth is that the right one will depend on your lifestyle. While tankless water heaters are vastly more efficient, they do cost more and we understand that they may not be within the reach of every budget, even with financing or our rental program.
Ask us for a free in-home consultation. You’ll get an expert opinion, an honest discussion about the pros and cons of each type, and most importantly no pressure.
Once you’ve decided on the right type and model of water heater for you, we’ll give you a full price quote. It will include all cost – there are no hidden fees of any kind. The price quote is guaranteed for 30 days, so you will have all the time you need to ask questions and make the right decision.
We offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee on all our water heater installations. If your new water heater doesn’t perform as expected, we’ll fix it for free. If it comes down to it we’ll even replace it with a comparable model at no cost to you!

Water Heater Maintenance and Safety Checks
Most of the time, our water heaters work so well they’re almost like magic. But most water heaters actually benefit from regular maintenance and safety checks.
Tankless water heaters need to be treated yearly for mineral buildup due to Ottawa’s hard water. And both tankless and tank models work using natural gas, so they should be tested every year to ensure the safety features are working correctly.
This includes things like:
- Draining and flushing the tank
- Checking for obstructions
- Checking for damage or corrosion
- Checking for a “soft blue flame”
- Checking for the presence of flammable or corrosive materials within the immediate area,
- Inspecting venting
- Inspecting air supply
- Inspecting piping system
- Inspecting main burner
- Checking for buildup of soot
- Checking for leaking or damaged water and gas piping
- Manually operating the temperature and pressure safety valves to ensure your water heater shuts down if there’s leakage, excessive heat, or no water coming in.
Regular maintenance pays off in the long run. In fact, you’ll save money several ways:
- You’ll save on fuel and water costs with better operating efficiency.
- You’ll avoid more expensive repair bills.
- Your water heater will last longer, saving you on replacement costs.
Not to mention you’ll get the peace of mind that comes with knowing your water heater is safe. Best of all, if you want to save on yearly maintenance you can sign up for one of our protection plans.
You deserve a reliable hot water supply. Feel free to ask us any questions you may have.
