Tankless Water Heater:

When choosing the proper tankless water heater for your home it is essential to first identify the number of bathrooms in the home as well as the total number of gas appliances in the home. This count will help you establish the number of gallons used per minute and the total number of BTUs being demanded by all gas appliances.

Typically for a two-bathroom home with a furnace and oven you would want to start at 190,000 BTUs at 8 GPM. Some of our favorite brands of Tankless Water Heaters include: Takagi, Navien, American Standard, Rinnai, and Noritz.

Water Heater Filter: Preserve the life of your water heaters and ensure the comfort of your home by equipping your water heater with its own direct water filtration. Heater Treater water filters act as a barrier between your water heater and the high levels of calcium and mineral deposits found in our city’s water supply.

Very similar to full house water heaters, these small filtration systems remove mineral deposits and reduce calcium flowing directly into your water heater. Failure to prevent these mineral deposits from entering your heater can severely reduce the quality and life span of any water heater.

Water heaters with high levels of mineral deposits entering the system are prone to leaks and corrosion inside the tanks and burners. This will inevitably lead to leaks and serious water heater failure. Which can cause severe damage to the heater itself and ultimately the home.
