Giant is the sole water heater manufacturer operating in Canada, so it’s a great option if you’re interested in buying locally. Their electric tank heaters are full of innovations, like a tank-bottom inlet for 10% more hot water, faster heating with more elements, and mini point-of-use tanks. Installing a Giant storage tank water heater will ensure you have a comfortable, energy-efficient supply of hot water.
The experts at Hot Water Ottawa will help you decide which model of water heater is right for you. Modern households with multiple bathrooms, multi-showerhead systems, and extra large bathtubs will need much larger storage tanks than a small household with two people.
There are several different types of natural gas water heater types, including atmospheric vent, power vent, and direct vent. With any natural gas or oil fired water heater, there needs to be an outdoor air supply pipe to release the exhaust gasses, such as propane gas or natural gas. The type of water heater you get will depend on your home style and layout.
With this system, fuel is heated and warms the water. The pressure of the combustion process is what pushes the exhaust gasses out of the chimney. Enough heat has to remain in the venting tank in order to allow enough pressure for the process to happen, and so some energy is wasted. On the other hand, this kind of venting doesn’t require electricity, so you’ll be able to have hot water even if your power goes out.
In this type of hot water heater, fuel is burned and the resulting heat from that combustion is used to heat the water. The excess gasses will simply vent outside via an exhaust pipe or chimney. This is a simple, energy-efficient system that relies on the physics of heated air being lighter than cool air; the exhaust will naturally rise, and no extra power is needed.
This type of hot water heater uses a fan or blower to help remove the exhaust from the heating process. This might be the type of heater you need if the heater is installed in a location where there’s no access to a vertical vent or chimney. Instead of being able to rise naturally, the exhaust gasses must be pushed outside with the use of a fan or blower.
These gas-fired water heaters are equipped with eco-friendly burners for effective, pollution-free combustion. Proprietary technology helps prevent the ignition of flammable vapours (including aerosols, solvents, gasoline, paint, paint thinner, and lacquer) outside of the water heater.
With a powerful blower assembly, there’s no chimney required to install this gas-fired water heater. These models come with Intelli-Vent™ electronic gas control that allows precise temperature control and history tracking using error codes.
These power direct gas fired water heaters have Intelli-Vent™ gas control, a sealed combustion chamber, and ¾-inch side tappings for high-capacity units. They can be used with elbow or concentric terminations, and the exhaust can be vented horizontally or vertically.
