Tankless or On-Demand Water Heaters

We offer a high performance condensing tankless water heater
that utilizes the existing ½” gas pipelines.

Tankless or on-demand water heaters heat water only when it’s needed

Eliminating the need for a storage tank. As well as the standby losses associated with maintaining a tank full of hot water.

Most tankless water heaters have a life expectancy of about 20 years. Much longer than any conventional tank-type water heater. They also end the risk of tank leaks and water damage.

Since 2006, Navien, Inc. has become one of the fastest growing companies in the home comfort sector in North America and is now a leader in condensing technology, providing:

condensing tankless water heaters,
and boilers.

How It Tankless Water Heater Works

When you turn on the hot water tap, cold water is drawn through a pipe into the unit and heated. Either by an electric heating element or a gas burner.

The hot water never runs out, but the flow rate may be limited. Tankless water heaters deliver hot water at a rate of 2 – 5 gallons per minute. Gas-fired models will generally have higher flow rates than electric models.

Advantages and Disadvantages Tankless Water Heaters

Choose the right tankless water heater for your needs

Advantages of on-demand water heating include:

  • Tankless water heaters are compact in size. Taking up less space than conventional tank type water heaters
  • They can drop standby losses. Energy wasted when hot water cools down in long pipe runs or while it’s sitting in the storage tank.
  • By providing hot water immediately where it’s used. Tankless water heaters waste less water. You don’t need to let the water run as you wait for hot water to reach a remote faucet.
  • A tankless water heater can provide unlimited hot water. As long as it is operating within its capacity.
  • The expected life of tankless water heaters is 20 years, compared to 10 to 15 years for tank type water heaters.

Disadvantages include:

  • Tankless water heaters usually can’t supply enough hot water for simultaneous uses. Such as showers and laundry. Be sure to find the right model to handle more.
  • Unless the system is equipped with a modulating temperature control. It may not heat water to a constant temperature at different flow rates. That means that water temperatures can fluctuate. Particularly if the water pressure varies in different parts of the house.
  • Electric tankless water heaters need a high electric power draw. Because water must be heated quickly to the desired temperature. In some cases, the home’s electric service may need to be upgraded.
  • Tankless gas water heaters must be vented to the outdoors. Either with a direct vent or conventional exhaust flue.
    If a gas-powered unit has a pilot light, it can waste energy.
