Tankless water heaters have no storage tank where the water sits until needed - the heating process starts only when you turn on the tap. Basically, the water line passes through the heat exchanger in the unit, and then sends the heated water to wherever it is needed in your home. Tankless water heaters are available in gas or electricity,powered models.
For gas,powered tankless water heaters, condensing models are extra efficient, because most of the heat in the exhaust gas is recaptured and used to help heat water. Efficiency rates on condensing water heaters range from 90% to 98%, whereas noncondensing models average around 80%.
By choosing a tankless water heater, you can enjoy these benefits:
Navien tankless water heaters are famous for being some of the most energy efficient water heaters you can buy, thanks to their condensing technology that uses waste heat to pre-heat incoming water. Navien was one of the first brands to produce condensing water heaters, and they're still one of the most reliable. The other great advantage with Naviens is that there is no need to change your existing natural gas supply pipes. They use the same 1/2? pipes your old tank uses.
Rinnai tankless water heaters are not only highly efficient, they are some of the easiest to repair in the industry. They were designed so that individual parts could be easy replaced, rather than entire systems. That means you save more money! Rinnai models are also designed to be more compact, so they can be installed even in the smallest and most awkward spaces.
