Do you need a new hot water heater?
There are many options to choose from.

Is your water heater not performing like it should?
Some reasons you may need to consider replacing it:
- it's older than 10 years
- you've noticed rust
- it's leaking
- it's making loud noises
- the water is not getting hot or taking a very long time
*It is recommended that you replace it BEFORE it starts to fail. You don't want a flooded basement. Regular inspections are a good idea.
When considering a new water heater, you have some choices to make:
- gas or electric
- traditional vs tankless
- what size do you need (how much water storage is needed for your home)
- hot water on demand/tankless
Tankless water heaters are becoming popular. Opinions vary on whether it is a better option that tank ones.
- tankless are known for their smaller size and will require less space in your home.
- more energy savings over the lifetime of the system
- you won't have to pay to keep a full tank of water constantly hot
- hot water is supplied immediately when you need it (on demand)
- they have a longer lifespan (possibly 20 years vs 10 years for the tank version)
- typically offer longer warranties
- even though they have a smaller space requirement, you may need to make changes in your home to accommodate it
- more expensive upfront costs and to install
Either water heating system will provide benefits to the homeowner but your budget, space and consumption will be the determining factors.
Did you know that there could possibly be rebates available?
The government or the city you live in, offers incentives (EcoRebates) on certain models/brands. We can show you how to take advantage of these programs.

"A 'best for the airport' approach."
They most recently redesigned our aircraft lavatory dumping facility to address our heating concerns. This facility, with its high gaseous presence is now running at optimum performance. They take a 'best for the airport' approach and offer advice and solutions that gain efficiencies in both financial and people resources. Our tenants and restaurants have also retained their services for all their plumbing and HVAC needs.

“Quality of workmanship was excellent.”
We recently worked with Millenium on the construction and start-up of a medium sized industrial pilot plant near Edmonton. Their on-site staff was professional and the quality of workmanship was excellent. They demonstrated an approach of problem solving throughout the process. We would certainly be pleased to work with them on future projects.

“I was quite impressed.”
We had a tour of a newly built industrial cannabis facility. I have visited several cannabis facilities, as well as pharmaceutical plants and I must say, I was quite impressed. The installation is, in my opinion, of the highest quality covering many operational details. I am confident in recommending Millenium.
