We use the industry’s leading Navien tankless water system to provide you and your family with comfort, convenience and almost $200 in savings annually. A luxurious investment that allows everyone in the family to take a hot shower in the morning, while you run the dishwasher or laundry, (priceless if you ask us)!

Industry Leading & Eco Friendly

Navien's products possess state-of-the-art technology, high efficiency, and reliable quality. Their eco-friendly condensing technology can reduce energy consumption by 20% and significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

What is Tankless?

On demand water heaters simply means hot water when you ask for it for as long as you want it, no limitations. No recovery time is required, unlike conventional tanks.

Why Go Tankless?

Easy! The system delivers a continuous flow of hot water for as long as you need it. No more waiting for a tank to warm up or refill. Not to mention the space savings. Plus, the Navien occupies 80% less space than traditional 50 gallon tank water heaters. 

How Does it Work?

1. When a hot water tap is opened, the unit detects the flow

2. The flow sensor activates to determine the amount of hot water needed

3. The igniter activates

4. The gas control valve opens to supply the correct amount of gas

5. The fan and venturi activate to provide the correct amount of gas and fuel

6. The premix burner ignites providing a flame to heat the water

7. Cold water is preheated in the secondary heat exchanger

8. Preheated water passes from the secondary to the primary heat exchanger

9. The unit determines outgoing set temperature and adjusts the flame to heat the water

10. Heated water moved to the buffer tank

11. Desired hot water amount delivered to the faucet
