While a tankless water heater may work well in warmer climates or even during our summer months, they can have some limitations during a typical Winnipeg winter. Since the incoming cold water can be as low as 37 F, the water heater is unable to obtain enough temperature rise in order to provide the right temperature for a nice hot shower. The way it compensates for the issue is to slow the flow of water down as it travels through the water heater. When this happens, the water pressure at the shower is greatly reduced. The same problem can occur year round if more than one source of hot water is being used at a time.
These are the two main factors which will affect the decision making process when deciding whether or not to have a tankless water heater installed. Call us today if you have any further questions or to request our services.
