Why buy an energy efficient water heater?
Water heating is the second largest energy consumer in your home, accounting for about 22% of your energy costs.
There are few developed countries in the world that use more energy per capita than canada. If Canadians were to develope more energy efficient home and lifestyles, we would greatly reduce our energy consumption as a nation. Most hot water heaters made over 7 years ago are likely to consume a LOT more energy than newer advanced models. Even though most hot water heaters will last for about a decade, if your heater is over 7 years old, you may want to consider replacing it with a new energy efficient model. By making a few small changes to your water heating system and to your water consumption behaviour, you can see a big energy savings benefit. Not only will you be doing your part to save the planet, you’ll also be bringing extra savings to your family pocketbook as well.
SAVE MONEY ON YOUR HOT WATER BILL: FLUSH YOUR HOT WATER TANK
Hot water tanks are one of the costlier items of the home. They are on 24-hours per day providing a ready supply of hot water for you and your family. Insulating an older tank with a thermal jacket can reduce this cost but there are other more direct measures that the average homeowner can do for greater cost savings.
SOFTER HOT WATER FOR CLEANER HAIR WHEN SHOWERING
In the absence of the sludge and gunk, your water heater will perform more efficiently. Your water will taste better (if you use water from the hot tap to fill your tea kettle,) and your dishes will rinse cleaner. You will likely notice this too when you bathe or shower. Washing your hair will be a surprise as you may find that you won’t need to use conditioner so often. The water won’t be so hard. It was the lime, calcium and metallic elements dissolved in the hot water that was making your hair feel unclean and ’stiff’ even after showering. One should notice a reduced electric bill as well because the heating element won’t have to work so hard now to heat the water.
Wow. more than expected! Answered first ring. Email confirmation of my apt right after phone call. On-time super nice guys. unfortunately it was bad news as there were roots in my sewer. but they gave me several options as I didn’t have a lot of money. Compared to the big sewer drainage companies this was a much better way to go. They completed all the work fully. Also came back later on that night to install and silicone the toilet for free. Offered that I call him anytime to discuss plumbing problems.All in all exceeded my expectations. Absolutely a very good experience that helped me through a stressful time. Sincerely Marty
I absolutely love the service JJ’s provides. They get the job done quickly and they are extremely pleasant to work with. I highly recommend them. I’ve hired them twice and they have exceeded my expectations both times. I wouldn’t even contemplate calling anyone else. Great company!
This was a re-piping job to replace polybutylene pipes. JJ’s Web site had a thorough explanation of the poly-b disaster, so I called him. Well before the pipes he replaced the main pressure relief valve right away, a good safety move. The re-piping was done in three days and included some smart on-the-spot routing. Justin is detail-oriented and was very particular about cleaning up at the end of each day. I had to pester him a few times about start dates, which is what happens when high quality work is in demand. Price was slightly lower than another well-regarded plumber, and came in a bit below estimate as Justin found some efficiencies along the way. He also gave valuable advice about other plumbing matters.
