Water is stored and continuously heated in a storage tank ranging capacity of 20 to 80 gallons. Hot water from the top is supplied when needed and cold water enters from below. There are chances of energy and heat loss in this type of water heater. They are the most common type heaters used in Edmonton homes but they take up a lot of storage space.
Tankless water heaters
They are the heat on demand type of heaters. There is no storage tank, water is heated in the pipes and supplied directly. They heat 2-5 gallons of water per minute. They are energy efficient and there is no heat loss during stand by. It is sleek and can be hung anywhere on the wall. They are perfect for couples and small families, and also green on the environment.
