High Mark Plumbing can install, repair, and maintain your water heaters in Airdrie, Calgary AB. We understand how useful and convenient a water heater can be, and how much you miss having one if it goes out.
Water heaters come in two basic types: those with tanks and those without. They are also divided into the types of fuel or heat that are used to heat the water, which can include gas, oil, biofuel, electric or one of the varying kinds of heat pumps. The primary difference between the two main types is that water heaters with a tank maintain a reserve of water at a specific temperature, whereas those without tanks heat the water “on demand” as it is needed. Both have their advantages. A tank allows water to always be ready for use at the turn of a tap, which is convenient in a home where someone is using water at nearly any hour of the day. The tankless water heaters are less susceptible to freeze damage, and are less likely to accumulate sludge – something that happens in any hot water tank. However with the tankless water heater, you might have to wait a few minutes for the water to warm up, and some are prone to “layering”, that is, giving you a bit of hot water followed by cold water before you get more hot water. Newer models recirculate the water to avoid this problem.
