In Manitoba, about two thirds of all hot water heaters consist of a storage tank heated with natural gas, ignited by a pilot light that burns continuously.  Electricity is used in most other households.
 
On average in 2010, a household's water heating
consumed 16.52 GJ and
emitted 0.56 GHG tonnes.
