Navien Tankless Water Heaters

The first high efficiency condensing combi‑boilers that can do it all…

Navien NCB-E is the first high efficiency condensing combi-boiler with the capacity to supply both heat and domestic hot water for larger homes — enough hydronic heat for a whole house, plus hot water to run two showers and a dishwasher all at the same time.

The Navien NCB-E also saves installation time and reduces call backs. In addition, the NCB-E takes up 80% less space than a traditional floor standing boiler and storage tank.

You now have more room, save energy and can enjoy all of the hot water you need, whenever you want it.

Rheem Water Heaters

With a full line of Rheem® water heaters to choose from, there’s sure to be one that’s the right fit for your family. Whether you need high water delivery or low energy costs—or both, there is one that is right for you and your family!

You now have more room, save energy and can enjoy all of the hot water you need, whenever you want it.

Prevent Frozen Pipes when your heat is out…

Keep your pipes from freezing by shutting off the valve that allows water to come into your home. Then, open any drain valves and all faucets and let them run until the pipes are empty (it’s helpful to identify these valves in advance). Next, flush all toilets and pour denatured alcohol into toilets and sinks to prevent water in the traps from freezing. Do NOT use automotive antifreeze in case there’s trouble with your water system; you don’t want the antifreeze to contaminate your drinking water. You may, however, use nontoxic antifreeze that’s made for winterizing motor homes.

Turn off the furnace emergency switch. Then drain your furnace boiler by opening the valve at the bottom (this looks like a garden faucet). Also, open all radiator vents. Be sure the boiler is filled with water again before it is restarted.

The tank of your electric water heater will keep water warm for the first few days after an outage. However, it can freeze after prolonged cold and should be drained after three days of below freezing temperatures.

Frozen Pipe Information and Tips from the American Red Cross:

During Cold Weather, Take Preventative Action

  • Keep garage doors closed if there are water supply lines in the garage.
  • Open kitchen and bathroom cabinet doors to allow warmer air to circulate around the plumbing. Be sure to move any harmful cleaners and household chemicals up out of the reach of children.
  • When the weather is very cold outside, let the cold water drip from the faucet served by exposed pipes. Running water through the pipe – even at a trickle – helps prevent pipes from freezing.
  • Keep the thermostat set to the same temperature both during the day and at night. By temporarily suspending the use of lower nighttime temperatures, you may incur a higher heating bill, but you can prevent a much more costly repair job if pipes freeze and burst.
  • If you will be going away during cold weather, leave the heat on in your home, set to a temperature no lower than 55° F.

To Thaw Frozen Pipes

  • If you turn on a faucet and only a trickle comes out, suspect a frozen pipe. Likely places for frozen pipes include against exterior walls or where your water service enters your home through the foundation.
  • Keep the faucet open. As you treat the frozen pipe and the frozen area begins to melt, water will begin to flow through the frozen area. Running water through the pipe will help melt ice in the pipe.
  • Apply heat to the section of pipe using an electric heating pad wrapped around the pipe, an electric hair dryer, a portable space heater (kept away from flammable materials), or by wrapping pipes with towels soaked in hot water. Do not use a blowtorch, kerosene or propane heater, charcoal stove, or other open flame device.
  • Apply heat until full water pressure is restored. If you are unable to locate the frozen area, if the frozen area is not accessible, or if you cannot thaw the pipe, call a licensed plumber.
  • Check all other faucets in your home to find out if you have additional frozen pipes. If one pipe freezes, others may freeze, too.
