Hot Water Supply

Every day, the average home uses about 75 litres of hot water!

Water heaters consume the second most energy in the home so it’s important that you choose the right model for the size of your family and home.

Homeowners frequently choose to use the same energy source for water heaters that they do for their space heating.

It is still worthwhile to compare water heaters based on the fuel types available in your area.

The most common type of water heater in Edmonton are natural gas and electric.

Tank and tankless options are both available.

Natural Gas

Models vary in size, type, and efficiency. They are typically vented through a chimney or a wall and necessitate sufficient airflow for combustion.

If natural gas water heaters have continuous pilot lights, they can provide hot water even when the power goes out.

Electric

Models are available in a variety of sizes, don’t require venting, and are simple to install. They require a long time to warm and cannot provide hot water during a power outage.

Hot Water Maintenance

Instant hot water systems required an annual flush.

The proper maintenance schedule for your unit can be found in your owner’s handbook or by speaking with your service specialist.

Our team can repair and service all brands of hot water tanks, and boilers.

We offer annual service packages so call us today to have your hot water system serviced or repaired.

Water Softeners & Water Filters

Hard water is prevalent in many areas of Alberta. Pipes, plumbing fixtures, and kitchen appliances all develop scale as a result.

Hard water can irritate and cause skin flaking, and it also reacts with soap to form a curd.

When washing or doing laundry with hard water, more soap or detergent is required.

Although water softening is advised when hardness surpasses 100 mg/L (6 grains per gallon), the threshold at which hardness becomes bothersome depends on personal choice.

The water supply should be chemically analyzed to identify the amount of hardness, iron, salt, and sulphate before investing in a water softening system.

Call us today for support with your analysis or for more information on our water softener and point of use water filtrations systems
