Canada’s relatively cooler climate requires its residents to equip their houses with effective water heating systems to provide running warm water in the showers and faucets. A typical Canadian home consumes an average of 75 liters of hot water each day, mostly used when temperatures drop to an extreme -25 degrees Celsius.
Among water heating systems, storage hot water tanks are still among the most preferred as they are durable and can hold a good amount of hot water for a household’s daily use. Other than hot water tanks in Saskatoon, however, Canadians may also prefer the on-demand tankless design or a combined structure. With their extensive need for warm water, Canadians regulate their hot water costs by improving the efficiency of their current systems or installing a drain water heat recovery (DWHR) device to lower the volume of heated water.
