Get Started

For some Hampton Roads area families, every day is a struggle to have enough hot water to meet daily needs: showers, dishwashing, clothes washing and cleaning. One option might be to install a larger capacity water heater, but often, space can be an issue. We’ve found that tankless water heaters are a great solution for many families who hope to improve hot water comfort, reduce costs and free up valuable space.

How Does a Tankless Hot Water Heater Work?

Tankless water heaters are often called “on-demand” hot water heaters because they only heat water when a hot tap is turned on, using either natural gas or electricity. They can be quite efficient, providing energy savings because they only heat when hot water is needed, instead of heating a large tank of water all the time. Many families can save about $100 annually by installing a tankless water heater, according to EnergySaver.com.

Coils for On-Demand Hot Water

Inside a tankless water heater, cool water is drawn through a series of coils that are quickly brought up to desired temperature using gas or electricity.  As hot water is drawn, the unit continues to heat until the hot water tap is turned off. For added savings, condensing tankless water heaters redirect excess heat to warm cold tap water. This recycling saves energy because the unit starts with slightly warmer tap water and less energy is required to reach the desired temperature.

Instant Hot Water by Navien

Because of their design, tankless hot water heaters can provide virtually instant hot water, especially when located in the home close to bathroom and kitchen areas where hot water is most often used. For the top efficiency, Russell’s Heating & Cooling offers Navien Tankless Water Heaters for the top of the line in condensing units. Navien uses non-corroding stainless steel for its two heat exchangers and operates with internal recirculating and buffer tanks to provide seamless hot water service. Navien’s units occupy 80% less space than a standard household 50-gallon tank, which makes them an ideal replacement for small utility closets and attics.  

Rinnai Tankless Water Heaters

For endless hot water and energy savings, many of our customers opt for a Rinnai tankless water heater available in condensing and non-condensing models. Even if you are running multiple sources at the same time, Rinnai Tankless water heaters are built to keep pace. These units feature completely replaceable components that keep hot water flowing for a long time without requiring complete replacement.

If you’re ready to make the switch to efficient, on-demand hot water using a tankless water heater in your Hampton Roads home, call us at (VA) 757-995-2807 / (NC) 252-489-4431 to set up an appointment!

  • Every moment from the time an appointment was set up until the day the work was completed was a pleasure. Every employee was a delight to work with. The proof that the product was great came when the electric bills started coming in the airconditioning season.
