How do I heat/cool my home?
Answering your practical questions regarding homes in Canada. How does hot water get distributed?
Hot water on demand is the key in this situation. A unit is typically installed in your basement. No, it is not called a geyser. This is a tankless water heater. When you turn on the hot water tap, cold water travels through the pipe into the unit where it is warmed up, giving you a constant supply of hot water. No need to wait for the geyser to fill up with hot water.
Petrus shows us how the unit looks in this video below.

Petrus is a Real Estate Agent and Team Lead at The Petrus Group with Sotheby’s International Realty – Canada, and was a Conveyancing Attorney in South Africa.
With over 25 years of property experience, one could say that he is ideally suited to help in advising on all property matters when it comes to leasing or buying a property. In Canada, prospective tenants and buyers have representation from a Real Estate Agent, at no cost, which makes it vastly different from South Africa where buyers and tenants are not represented and have to approach the seller’s or landlord’s agent.
Petrus is passionate about advising fellow South Africans through the process of finding their ideal Canadian home and being the ‘agent of choice’ when it comes to negotiating on their behalf.
