Enjoy the benefits of an energy-efficient water heating system that heats water only when it’s needed. Tank-less systems use high-powered burners to quickly heat water as it runs through a heat exchanger, which Consumer Reports found were 22 percent more energy efficient on average than the gas-fired storage-tank models in their independent testing.
Also called Instantaneous Water Heaters or on-Demand Water Heaters, tankless installations can provide and endless supply of hot water to multiple appliances simultaneously, without any fluctuation in temperature. Tank-less systems are also exteremely energy-efficient, because they are not continuously heating a huge tank of water when you’re not using it.
Because a tankless system does not have a large storage tank, these water heaters take up less space in your Portland, Oregon home than traditional “holding-tank” water heaters.
There are both electric and natural-gas fired tankless models on the market, but Pioneer recommends the natural-gas fired models for their consistency and performance compared to the electric models. Most homes require some amount of electrical re-writing to supply the electric models, and most electric models can’t deliver hot water fast enough to replace a conventional water heater if groundwater is cold, as evidenced in Consumer Reports testing. And Portland’s water supply, originating from the glaciers on Mt. Hood, is very cold!
With more than 30 years’ experience with Natural Gas appliance installations, Pioneer can get your tankless water heater installed right, making sure that your Natural Gas hookups are up to code, and that the carbon-dioxide waste gases from your natural gas water heater are properly vented to keep you and your family safe.
This Carrier High Efficiency Natural Gas Furnace has an AFUE rating of 95% which means that 95 cents of every $1.00 of heating energy expense warms your home, and is perfectly suited to the consistent demands of Portland, Oregon home heating…
