Whenever a person is building a new home, they want to install appliances that will reduce their
energy costs. One way to reduce energy costs is to switch from a traditional, tank water heater
to a tankless water heater. At American Air Heating & Air Conditioning, we offer Navien
tankless water heaters, a great choice for your water heating needs. When considering a
tankless water heater, here are a few things to think about:
- 98% Efficiency – Our tankless water heaters use 58% less energy than your traditional tank
water heater. The water heater is only in use when hot water is required, while a traditional
heater is on continuously to keep water hot. Heating water only when you require it means a
huge cost savings on your yearly energy bill.
- Space – These types of heaters are compact and only require a small amount of space. In fact,
they are mounted on the wall so they take up no floor space at all. And, you can receive an
instantaneous supply of hot water without worrying about a broken tank flooding your closet.
- Reliability – Tankless water heaters are reliable; they have a life expectancy of up to 20 years,
twice as much as traditional water heaters.
- Sustainability – Navien tankless water heaters are eco-friendly. They reduce the carbon
footprint by up to 900 lbs. annually.
- Upfront Purchase Cost – When compared to the initial cost of buying a traditional tank water
heater, the initial investment is higher. In some cases, tankless water heaters can cost twice as
much as conventional water heaters. But, rebates may be available to help offset costs. And, all
parts of tankless water heaters can be replaced upon failure, as opposed to traditional water
heaters which may require that the entire tank be replaced when it leaks.
- Installation Cost – The installation cost is another investment. There will most likely be some
plumbing work that needs to be done in order to retrofit a new tankless water heater for your
- Tankless Water Heaters are efficient, sustainable and can reduce your annual energy bill. If this
