Alturas Homes is committed to providing comfortable spaces you will love. A tankless water heater in our homes is one way we deliver on this promise. There are many benefits including financial savings and decreased required maintenance when you use a Navien tankless water heater. Our water heater of choice is the Navien 240-S series.
About The Product
Heating 11.2 gallons per minute, the Navien 240-S guarantees an unlimited supply of hot water throughout the home
The water heater only uses energy when prompted to send water. When a faucet is not turned on, the water heater conserves energy by not sending water.
Control settings for the water heater can be controlled remotely with any wireless connection.
How it Works
A tankless water heater sits idle until a hot-water tap is opened in the house. Cold water is sent into the unit and a flow sensor activates a gas-fired burner, which warms the internal heat exchangers.
As the cold water passes through the heat exchanger it is warmed to the preset temperature.
Hot water then exits the heater and travels directly to the faucet or appliance—not to a storage tank .
When the hot-water tap is turned off, the heater shuts down, and therein lies the main benefit of tank-less water heaters: Since there’s no storage tank to keep filled, tank-less models only heat water when it’s called for.
How You Save Money
When you buy an Alturas home with a Navien water heater, you can save an average of $160/year in costs to heat your home compared to a traditional electric or gas unit. Remember, these water heaters only heat water when you need to. So the next time you're on vacation or visiting family out of town, you won't have to worry about you water bill going up while you'e gone.
How You Save Time
Required maintenance is simple. By cleaning the inlet water screens, air filter, condensate traps, flushing the airways, and verifying operation, you can ensure your Navien water heater is working in just a few minutes.
