Tankless Water Heaters are Hot
A ModelRemodel sponsor oversees installation of a new boiler
As a ModelRemodel sponsor, Noritz oversaw the installation of their 90-pound, wall-hung Combination Boiler in the basement of the house. It takes up as much as 80 percent less space than a traditional, floor-standing boiler and water heater, and was designed to safely and accurately heat the DHW and heating applications, while maintaining the separation of the two water systems.
Tankless water heaters have been popular around the world and are gaining momentum in the U.S. Contractors are learning more about the benefits of tankless water heaters and consider them an excellent solution for homeowners who want unlimited, on-demand hot water. They can also be installed in small spaces such as under cabinets or in closets.
Many homeowners experience energy savings after installing a tankless water heater because water is heated only as needed. Energy is not wasted by having to store and maintain the temperature in a large tank. This results in lower energy bills.
Under the National Appliance Energy Conservation Act, water heaters manufactured after April 16, 2015, must meet new energy requirements. The Plumbing-Heating-Cooling Contractors Association provides a comprehensive guide to frequently asked questions about the implications of this act.
