Tankless Water Heater Installation & Why We Don’t Recommend It

Alberta's cold climate puts major demands on tankless technology. Therefore we do not offer tankless water heater installation at Riteway Plumbing. With the harsh winters in Alberta, tankless heaters are prone to freezing. Plus, despite costing a lot more than traditional tank heaters to install, they also require yearly maintenance.


Budget and energy consumption are important considerations. Tankless water heaters are very expensive up front. Although some argue that they are more energy efficient and will, therefore, save you money in the long run, this isn’t necessarily true, researchers found that most tankless water heaters will wear out before they save enough energy to justify their cost. A well-insulated tank heater can be just as efficient (if not more so), and it will cost you less.


People who live in colder climates or areas with harsh winters, like Alberta, are better off using tank water heaters. The colder the water coming into the home, the more energy needed to boost water temperatures high enough to get hot water for the shower. So it’s more sensible to have a storage tank with a reserve of hot water. Plus, tankless water heaters are prone to freezing in cold weather if they are not totally drained.
