Navien Tankless Water Heaters: A Leader We Deserve
Navien utilizes an ultra-efficient condensing technology,
which uses less gas resulting in a significant reduction of green
gas emissions – better for you, better for the environment.
Years ago, in a basement far, far away
Not too long ago, a solution arose to break us free from the cumbersome grip of the large cylindrical water tank dinosaurs. These new-age tankless hero’s had arrived to break us from the iron shackles of inefficiency and square footage pollution – but there were a few issues. While these units broke us free, they also came with a host of inconvenient stipulations that may have contributed to the overall lack of widespread adoption. The home’s gas lines required replacing to suit the water heater’s needs, an outside wall was required for mounting and the vent length was comically short and a lack of compensator made it difficult to successfully operate numerous faucets at once, to name a few.
Thanks to Navien (along with other brands) and their tireless efforts to remedy the list of grievances from consumers and contractors alike and to clear the hurdles of providing endless supplies of water with no tank, we find ourselves in a new era. This era shines like a beacon of efficiency and pollution control, combined with affordability, even detractors are coming up empty handed as they search their bags of excuses not to employ such systems.
Navien’s latest condensing tankless water heaters (models such as the NPE Series) can provide your home with an endless supply of hot water on demand. This means you utilize natural gas to heat the water only when you need it, unlike a conventional system that has to keep 30-50 gallons warm constantly for the event which you happen to require it. Navien achieves this by activating the unit the second you open a hot water tap, supplying you with an endless supply of hot water.
Conventional tank-type water heaters eventually run out of hot water when you take multiple draws in a row from the tank. Since Navien Condensing tankless water heaters only provide hot water when you need it and can provide an endless supply of hot water, you never have to worry about running out of hot water no matter how many hot water draws you have in a row.
What Makes Navien Better Than the Rest?
Navien’s primary condensing stainless steel heat exchangers are able to recover extra heat that would be lost in traditional tankless water heaters that may utilize copper in their employ. Additionally, since all Navien’s tankless water heaters are condensing tankless gas water heaters, the exhaust temperature is very low. In fact the exhaust temperature is so low you are able to use PVC schedule 40 to vent the units in almost all applications. The use of PVC allows for significant installation cost savings & convenience compared to traditional tankless water heaters, especially for those with brick and mortar chimneys that find themselves having to install a chimney liner.
Navien’s Condensing tankless water heaters are ideal for tank replacement providing an exceptional amount of cost savings during operation compared to traditional tank water heaters.
Unfortunately, old-fashioned tank heaters, as well as conventional tankless water heaters, emit harmful Nitrogen (NOx) and Carbon dioxide(CO2) directly into the air at a whopping 245°F-450°F! These harmful emissions damage both us and the environment in which we live.
Installing 31 Trees in your home
Were you aware that A Navien Condensing water heater decreases no less than 964 lbs of CO2 per year compared to a conventional tank-type water heater and 324 lbs compared to a conventional tankless-type water heater? It’s true! Meanwhile A Cypress tree reduces 30.8 lbs of CO2 per year, seeing as a Navien Condensing water heater reduces 964 lbs of CO2 per year which equates to 31 cypress trees! So not only does installing a Navien system equate to cost savings for you, but it also provides a substantial positive impact for our environment.
Tankless > Conventional
Anyone who is currently contemplating replacing an old or broken water heater should probably either be on the phone or on our website (800-880-0199, Younits.com respectively) looking up these units. Surprise would be at a minimum in the event of someone replacing a brand new conventional unit with one of these systems, seeing how great they are. What a time in which we live to be able to contemplate the possibilities of completely eliminating hot water tanks from our household equation. While Navien is the clear winner when it comes to leaders in the hierarchy of tankless manufacturers, do the research, give us a call and look online at the others. We surmise you’ll be meeting our (and Navien’s) acquaintance very soon.
