Monitoring Performance of Retrofitting from Tank to Tankless Water Heaters
Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) initiated a project to better understand the impacts that retrofitting a conventional storage tank hot water heater to a gas-fired tankless heater had on water and energy consumption. Monitoring in 23 houses found an average 46 percent reduction in natural gas used for water heating after such a retrofit, and while the impacts on water consumption were more varied between households, there was an average increase in water consumption of 2 percent.
