The water heater, the “hot water tank” in Quebec, is a very important part of any infrastructure frequented by humans. As one can imagine, hot water is crucial for daily activities in a residential home and even in commercial spaces.
Getting the appliance is one thing. Ensuring that the repair of your water heater follows good safety practices and that the equipment you purchased is at its peak performance and durability is another.

Normally, a certified plumber should have your new tank repair completed in 2-3 hours unless unforeseen complications arise. Here are the steps for the repair:
There are several types of water heaters that change the temperature of your water from different energy sources. Some water heaters are more environmentally friendly than others. Contact our expert plumbers to learn more about the positives of each water heater. Whatever you choose, we can fix it!
The electric water heater is the most commonly used water heater in Quebec homes. The electric water heater heats cold water through a dip tube using heating elements inside your tank. The hot water is then moved throughout your home through the heating pipe. You can choose the capacity of your water tank (40 gallons, 60 gallons, etc.).
These units run on gas or electricity. As the name implies, the tankless water heater raises the temperature of the water based on demand. It heats only the amount of water needed instead of continuously heating a full tank.
The thermodynamic water heater is an innovative option that is also more expensive initially, but will save you electricity in the medium term, so it is a solution that many people are considering.
This device is equipped with a storage tank and a heat pump. It uses the energy contained in the air to heat the storage tank. It has the added benefit that most of your hot water is absolutely free!
The heat pump is a pool heat pump or pool water heater. It is the most efficient and economical way to heat a pool. However, it has one drawback: in order for it to work optimally, the ambient air must be relatively warm. A heat pump will not work optimally when ambient temperatures are below 12 degrees Celsius.
A gas pool heater heats the pool water much faster than a heat pump, but is not very environmentally friendly. There is a lot of gas wasted in the operation of the heater. A gas pool heater also uses a lot of energy (about 1 liter of propane per hour per 100,000 BTUs) and only 85% of this gas is used to produce heat. This system quickly becomes very expensive for the user if he wants to keep his pool warm all year long.
