Affordable Installation Makes Tank-to-Tankless Water Heater Upgrade a Reality for Huntington Beach, Calif., Homeowner

John Park lived the problem every day: too little hot water in his new home. What surprised him was the affordability of having his plumber replace his old tank water heater with a high-efficiency, tankless unit that also provides abundant hot water.

John Park has had a lot of “new” in his life of late – a new, three-bedroom, two-bath home in Huntington Beach and a new baby. Yet for all that is fresh and new in his young life, until recently he’s also had to contend with an age-old problem familiar to many homeowners: too little hot water from a tank-type water heater. more>>

Engineering, Aesthetics and Efficiency Combine to Deliver On-Demand Hot Water at Vintage Crossings Development

New Southern California affordable apartment community provides residents the latest in water heating technology that promises to save both energy and space.

Hundreds of details must come together to build any type of residential structure. For a new apartment community, increase the hundreds of details found with a single-family home by a factor of 10—maybe more. Some of those details are non-negotiable: code requirements, local zoning rules and energy-efficiency mandates, to name just a few. Others fall into what can be called the optional category: aesthetic considerations, plan modifications, product specifications or construction schedules. more>>

Texas school district embraces multi-unit, tankless water heating systems for their ‘sizable’ space- and energy-saving advantages

550,000-square-foot Centennial High School complex is the latest successful tankless project for the Burleson (Texas) Independent School District, with 25 units in three systems delivering hot water to food-service and culinary arts kitchens, locker-room sinks and showers, and plumbing facilities in the field house

A series of successful installations has made construction manager Cliff Holden a big believer in tankless water heating systems for the school-building projects he oversees. Since 2007, the 15-unit Burleson (Texas) Independent School District (BISD) has erected six new educational facilities under Holden’s direction, and the latest three have all featured multiple-unit, tankless solutions — in no small part because he wholeheartedly championed the idea. more>>

Eight Is Enough in Switch from Boilers to Tankless Water Heaters At Four Residence Halls at California State, Northridge

Plumbing installer prefabs eight tankless units into a single multiunit system at each of four buildings, cutting energy consumption and complying with local emission-control standards while meeting the hot-water needs of student-residents.

Beverly Watson can easily laugh about the idea today, now that her recent tankless water heater retrofit project has been successfully completed and is fully meeting her requirements. But the associate director of operations for California State University, Northridge (CSUN), admits to wondering last summer while the work proceeded whether eight — as in eight tankless water heaters — were truly enough for her particular application. more>>

Cramped Mechanical Room Spurs Switch to Multi-Unit Tankless Water Heating System for 130-Room Hotel Project

When the original boiler spec proves unworkable, hotel ownership switches to a 93%-efficient condensing tankless solution to save both space and fuel costs. With inputs up to 3.4 million BTU per hour, 17-unit system uses innovative common-venting approach to minimize exterior wall penetrations.

Saving space is invariably one of the prime attractions in switching from a storage tank-type water heater to a tankless system. Most applications involve mounting these medicine-cabinet-sized appliances on an exterior wall, which frees up precious floor space for more productive uses. Even multiple-unit commercial systems, whether hung on the wall or placed into some sort of racking system in the middle of a room, tend to command substantially less space than a comparably sized tank-type system. more>>
