The "Second Price Tag" When Choosing a Water Heater: Operation Costs
On average, Canadians utilise as much as 75 litres of hot water every day within their homes to accomplish various tasks. These can include laundry, washing dishes and addressing issues of personal hygiene. Such an expenditure equates to an incredible 17 per cent of the total energy consumption of a property. This is the main reason why choosing the most appropriate water heater is important.

Most manufacturers are now motivated to meet the consumption requirements set out by the Canadian government. The exact stipulations will differ and there are three separate categories:
Gas heaters Oil-fired heaters Electric heaters
No longer will outdated models be able to provide the levels of efficiency encouraged by the government. This is the primary reason why many Spruce Grove heating and plumbing specialists will choose trusted appliances, particularly those compliant with the Energy Star® rating system.
