Why You Should Switch to a Tankless Water Heater

    Tankless water heaters are quickly becoming the norm around many households across the U.S. People are tired of high water bills that seem never-ending and the ever so often cold water cutting on during their showers. Energy efficiency plays a big part as well for those who are concerned about how traditional water heaters are affecting the environment. Plus, who wants that big ole water tank taking up space in the basement? With a tankless water heater, all of these problems can be solved. In addition, they come with a load of incredible benefits that you may not have been aware of.

   Some of the benefits included with a Navien Tankless Water Heater: 

    Energy efficiency is off the charts. Navien condensing technology provides up to 0.99 Energy Factor. These extremely efficient and eco-friendly units provide extra energy savings over a traditional tank and non-condensing tankless water heaters. A traditional tank only provides between a 0.60-.062 Energy Factor.

    Hotter water with an endless hot water supply. Tired of having to wait on a the hot water to resupply after you take a shower or run the dishwasher? Those days are over if you invest in a Navien tankless water heater. Endless hot water supply is on demand whenever you need it. It's primary condensing stainless steel heat exchangers recover extra heat that is usually lost in non-condensing tankless heaters. That keeps exhaust temperatures very low—so low that economical Schedule 40 PVC pipe can be used for venting in almost all applications. 

    Eco-friendly systems. Commitment to a greener earth is a priority for Navien, which is why they utilize an ultra-efficient condensing technology. This technology uses less gas resulting in a significant  reduction of green gas emissions. Better for you, and better for the environment. It's a win-win.  

    Tankless water heaters have less space required. On average, a traditional tank needs at least 11 square feet of wall space plus 4 square feet of space on the floor to properly operate. On the opposite side, a tankless water heater only needs 3.62 square feet of wall space. That's an 80% difference between the two! Allow yourself more space in basement for storage or other activities by switching to a tankless water heater.

    Industry leading warranty. Typically a tankless water heater with stainless-steel heat exchanger offers a 15-year warranty. In comparison, non-condensing tankless water heaters offer around a 12 year warranty. A traditional tank only offers a 6-year warranty.

Why Tankless Water Heaters are The Best Choice For Your Home
