In 2018 the trend in the market say’s tankless water heaters are preferred over traditional water heaters.
There are three reasons why the popularity of tankless water heaters are growing. One, tankless water heaters save space as they are wall-mounted and do not require large storage tanks. Two, they have greater energy efficiency as they avoid the need to heat and reheat water in a storage tank. Three, they have an increased life of nearly 15 – 20 years.
Fox Valley Plumbing and Backflow has an experienced and skilled team that service all models of tankless water heaters.
You have a few options when it comes to choosing a tankless hot water heater.
Option #1 Non-Condensing Tankless Water Heaters
Non-condensing tankless water heaters – these heaters much like a condensing tankless water heater the non-condensing tankless water heaters will push the exhaust gases out a vent to the outside.
They will cool outside the unit. These gases are around 300 degrees and need special materials for the venting to withstand the temperatures and not corrode which usually prove to be very expensive.
Option #2 Condensing Tankless Water Heaters
Condensing tankless water heaters – these water heaters extract heat from exhaust gases through different means and produce cooler gases around 100 degrees Fahrenheit. These cooling gases produce condensation inside the unit.
The efficiency of the unit goes up because you can use cheaper ventilation materials as the gases are cooler.
By capturing the residual exhaust heat to heat the water, the unit has achieved a higher efficiency. There are factors that need to be taken into account with this unit as it may not always condensate.
Surrounding air temperature and air humidity can affect condensation. Since the exhaust gases have cooled inside the unit, the condensation is now inside the unit as well.
This is where the heat exchanger comes into play. This part must be made of better materials to withstand the corrosive nature of the gases. These are usually made of stainless steel alloy.
The collected condensation needs to be fully neutralized before it can be drained outside. This is usually done by special fertilization or dilution.

Option #3 Hybrid Tankless Water Heaters
Hybrid tankless water heaters – these water heaters fill that gap by combining the higher hot water output of a tank heater with the endless heating capacity of a tankless.
And in recent years, manufacturers have introduced different variations on the theme.
What the hybrids have in common, though, is that unlike tankless heaters, they use the same gas and venting hookups as a conventional tanks.
Some hybrid tankless water heaters have been known to pump out upwards of 180 gallons an hour. That’s a lot of hot water!
