Why choose tankless?
Tankless water heaters have come a long way. Efficiency has gone up and the size of the heaters has shrunk.
Some models come with built-in recirculation pumps and bypass valves that can create a hot water recirculation system in your home with no need to run additional piping. Internal lines and the heat exchanger are made from high-quality stainless steel.
Navien units have the ability to diagnose their own issues and can be connected to your phone.
Navien tankless units come with a 15-year limited warranty on heat exchangers, 5-year limited warranty on parts, and 1-year limited labor warranty.

Tankless Water Heater Cost
In most cases, the cost of installing your tankless heater matches our flat-rate base price. There are some requirements that will increase the price. The unit needs a larger diameter gas supply than your conventional model. A 3/4″ gas line is required. If you don’t have this we will have to run a larger gas line to the unit or it won’t pass inspection. If your old tank model shares a vent with your furnace then the PVC venting will need to run either horizontally and out through a wall or a new roof penetration will have to be made.
Bigger houses may require an external recirculation pump booster to help push the water.
Tankless Water Heater Cost vs Tank
You are going to pay about double to install a tankl water heater. Gas savings offset the cost somewhat. Navien heaters are space-saving, energy-saving and provide unlimited hot water. When installed and maintained correctly they are very reliable.
The life span of a tank model is about 10-12 years. A tankless water heater can last 25 years or longer with proper maintenance.
Tankless Water Heater Installation
A Navien unit can be installed within a day in most cases. We remove and dispose of your old tank for you. At the end of the install, we will program the unit to your specifications and go over some of the features.
Tankless Water Heater Repair
If you have issues with your unit and need tankless water heater repair, Navien customer support is excellent. Replacement parts are typically overnighted to you allowing our technicians to fix your unit quickly. Navien works hand in hand with our technicians providing training and top-level technical support.
Yearly service of your unit is required to keep it running efficiently and for longer.
A heat exchanger cleaning should be done once a year using the correct chemicals. The whole unit is inspected for damage, leaks and any venting issues.
