Tankless Water Heaters
If you are looking to service your tankless water heater, or you would like a new one installed, we can help.
Currently, the Alberta Government is offering up to $1000 rebate for tankless water heaters.
How does it work?
First, you get a quote from your trusted 180 Team. Next, you complete a Customer Release Form (this gives us permission to pass your information on to the Government). Then, you book an appointment for installation. Finally, enjoy your unlimited hot water and wait for your rebate to come in the mail.
Am I guaranteed $1000?
The short answer is No. It depends on how bad the old tank was vs how good the new tankless heater is. If you replace a conventional water heater you will receive a greater rebate than if you were to replace a direct vented tank. The idea is, a direct vented tank, while less efficient than a tankless unit, is more efficient than a conventional tank. Therefore, the more inefficient the old tank, the greater your rebate will be.
Will I need extra maintenance?
Yes. Something to keep in mind when making the switch to a tankless water heater is that “it is not a tank”. Technically it is a condensing boiler which requires maintenance. It is highly recommended that the water going into the heater be treated (softened or de-scaled). This will reduce required maintenance and help ensure the heaters longevity.
Due to the hardness of Calgary water, a flush of the heat exchanger is recommended once a year if no de-scaler or softener is present. If the water entering the tankless unit is treated, this flush can be pushed to every 3 to 5 years depending on use.
Also having the burners and combustion components checked and cleaned once a year is important to ensure maximum efficiency.
