Domestic Hot Water Heaters

Hot Water Tanks for Vancouver Island Homes

Hot water heaters utilize an energy source, be it natural gas or electricity, to heat water for use in your home. West Bay Mechanical installs high-quality hot water tanks from industry-leading brands such as John Wood, Rheem and Bradford White. The team at West Bay Mechanical will help you get the hot water tank that meets your needs.


Electric water heaters function by using one or two direct immersion heating elements which are controlled by a microprocessor control module, or a thermostat. The elements heat the incoming cold water for use throughout your home.

Our electric water heater brands include:


Gas water heaters function by using a gas burner at the bottom, with the chimney running up through the middle of the tank.  The gas burner heats the incoming cold water for use throughout the home.  Tankless and power vent units are available allowing for better efficiencies and venting configurations.

Our gas water heater brands include:


Tankless water heaters operate without the use of a water storage tank. Cold water travels through a pipe into the unit where it is heated instantaneously by a gas burner or electric element. These units can deliver a continuous supply of hot water.

Our tankless water heater brands include:


Indirect water heating systems are typically powered by electricity, oil, or gas. Water is heated when it passes through the heat exchanger, providing hot water on demand. Boilers can be used for heating building as well as domestic hot water.

Our boiler/indirect water heater brands include:
