How Condensing Tankless Water Heaters Work

Ultra high-efficiency tankless water heaters—also known as condensing tankless—use two heat exchangers to supply endless hot water when you turn on a faucet. They use less energy (and money) than traditional water heaters because they don't need to reheat the water over and over.

  1. When a hot water tap is opened, the tankless water heater 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 pre-heated in the secondary heat exchanger

  8. Pre-heated 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 moves to the buffer tank

  11. Desired hot water amount delivered to the faucet

Tankless Water Heaters FAQs

Below are the top questions (and answers) about tankless water heaters from our customer service team.

Installing a Navien tankless water heater is best done by a licensed plumbing contractor professional because it involves disconnecting and reconnecting gas lines. Venting and wiring also require professional expertise to ensure the installation meets building codes. Use Navien’s installer and service locator to find a specialist in your area.

It is worth switching to a tankless water heater if you are looking for a more efficient option. Tankless water heaters can save you money on your energy bill, and they can also have a longer lifespan than traditional water heaters.

To choose the right size tankless water heater for your home, you will need to consider a few factors, such as: the number of people in your household, the average water usage in your household, and the climate in your area.

A Navien tankless water heater must be purchased and installed by a licensed plumber. Find a Navien installer near you.

Condensing tankless water heaters need a condensate drain. This is because when the water is heated, it produces condensation that needs to be drained away. The condensate drain ensures that this doesn’t build up and cause problems with the tankless water heater.

Descaling is a process that removes mineral deposits from the inside of the tankless water heater. It’s something that needs to be done every few years, depending on the hardness of your water.

Navien tankless water heaters have a lifespan of up to 20 years. However, proper maintenance is required in order to achieve this lifespan.

The ultimate in energy efficiency

Navien condensing technology provides up to 0.96 UEF. These extremely efficient and eco-friendly units provide extra energy savings over traditional tank and non-condensing tankless water heaters.

Protect the environment
as you add value

 
Navien condensing stainless steel heat exchangers recover extra heat that would be lost in non-condensing boilers. The result is a reduction in energy consumption, lower CO2 emissions and low exhaust temperatures allowing the use of less expensive venting materials such as Schedule 40 PVC.
