3 criteria to consider when choosing the right water heater

After years of loyal service, your water heater needs to be replaced? Are you building a new home and in the process of choosing your plumbing fixtures?

If you recognize yourself in either of these situations, know that at Plomberie Chauffage Normand, a Montreal-based company, we can help you find the ideal water heater. Here are 3 important criteria to consider when shopping.

1. The energy used to heat your water

If applicable, determine what energy you want to use to heat your water. If your home already has gas pipelines, for example, you could opt for a natural gas water heater. This type of device uses less energy than electric water heaters. On the other hand, the latter are easy to install, less expensive and particularly effective. In addition, they require little maintenance. It's up to you to weigh the pros and cons!

2. The water heater model and its characteristics
At Plomberie Chauffage Normand, we offer 2 types of water heaters: with or without tank. Appliances with a tank are generally less expensive and contain hot water all the time. Therefore, they are suitable for those who often use several appliances at the same time (dishwasher, washing machine, etc.) or for families who take several baths or showers each day, for example. That said, tankless equipment - also known as tankless water heaters - usually uses less energy, which saves you money.

3. The hot water consumption of your home
If you opt for a water heater with a tank, check that its storage capacity is sufficient for your consumption. If your tank is too small, you may run out of hot water at an inconvenient time. Plus, your device will wear out faster. Conversely, too much storage capacity will unnecessarily increase your energy bill.

At Plomberie Chauffage Normand, our 40, 50, 60, 80 and 100 gallon water heaters are suitable for both single people and large families. So, whatever your consumption habits, we certainly have the model you need!
