Home energy renovation - Hamilton Ontario

Tankless hot water heaters aren’t a new invention, but these so-called on-demand water heaters are less familiar in North America than they are in Europe or Asia.

So when Hamilton homeowner John Sheehan saw the new tankless hot water heater his friend had just installed, he was tremendously impressed.

“I was amazed at how it worked,” he says.

Tankless water heater

Also called instantaneous hot water heaters or on-demand water heaters, tankless water heaters save energy because they heat water only when it’s needed.

Instead of keeping hot water in a storage tank, an instantaneous water heater takes water from the home’s water supply and quickly warms it up with a series of heat exchanging pipes, typically housed inside a suitcase-sized metal box.

The hot water then flows to the home’s hot water taps. Instantaneous hot water heaters are a space- and energy-saving option quickly becoming more popular among Canadian homeowners.

High-efficiency gas furnace

For Sheehan and his wife, not having to wait for the hot water to warm up means they use less water and energy. They don’t have to run the tap until the water gets to the right temperature, and they can get as much hot water as they need.

Eliminating the stand-by energy losses that come with standard hot water tanks means the Sheehans save money on their electricity bills every month.

Between the hot water heater and other energy-saving renovations, Sheehan says, “the heating bills went down quite a bit. In five months I saved about $400.”

Insulation and more

To maximize his savings, Sheehan followed the recommendations of his Hamilton Home Energy Advisor, who told him “what we needed to do to improve the energy efficiency of our home. For example, just where to put the insulation so that our house would be warmer.”

More renovations, more savings

Besides the hot water heater, Sheehan installed a new high-efficiency gas furnace, an Energy Star-rated central air conditioner, and, as the Energy Advisor suggested, additional insulation in the home’s basement header walls. The result? “My home is more comfortable,” he says.

And the energy savings he’s achieved through the renovations make a big difference. “I’d recommend it for the gas savings alone.”
