Considering a new water heater for your Castlegar area home or business?
You now have the choice of traditional tanks, heat pump water heaters, or tankless hot water systems. We stock John Wood and Bradford White traditional and heat pump water heaters and high-efficiency gas tankless systems from industry leader Rinnai.
John Wood Water Heaters are a Canadian brand. They, along with Bradford White offer a broad range of traditional gas and electric tank water heaters and the new heat pump water heaters. If your existing tank system fails, we stock direct replacement systems that often can be installed in your Columbia River Valley home or business the same day. Conventional water heaters are often the lowest installed cost choice for replacing an existing system.
Higher efficiency water heaters include both heat pump water heaters and gas tankless water heaters. Heat pump water heaters from John Wood or Bradford White extract heat from ambient air and utilize it to heat your domestic hot water. They use only a third of the energy of a traditional electric tank water heater and are eligible for rebates of up to $1000 for Fortis BC.
Tankless water heaters are compact heating units that provide hot water as it is needed and do not store hot water like traditional tank-type water heaters. When a hot water tap is turned on, water enters the tankless water heater. A sensor detects the water flow and activates an electric or gas heating device, which quickly raises the water temperature to a preset level.
Because tankless heaters do not store water, they are less subject to corrosion than tank-type heaters. As a result, their expected equipment life is possibly longer - more than 20 years, compared with 10 - 15 years for traditional heaters. Also, because they are not heating 40 - 50 gallons of water 24 hours a day, tankless water heaters are less susceptible to leakage than tank-type water heaters.
