Chimney Venting Kit

Happy Tuesday everyone!

Hellgate Plumbing wanted to share one of our most recent projects. We installed a chimney liner kit for one of our customers who has a Navien combi-boiler unit. This chimney liner kit is a great option when you have an existing chimney that is not lined. It’s good to have a flue for your boiler system, and this can be a way to do it.

Call us to learn more about chimney liner kits and to have one installed in your home today!

York Factory Tour

Hellgate Plumbing & Heating only offers the best York furnaces to our customers! Because we want to provide the best service possible, one of our team members went on a tour through the York factory to learn more about how these furnaces are created. It is very important for our Hellgate Plumbing team to fully understand the equipment we install in our customers’ homes, which made this experience extremely beneficial and insightful! It’s awesome to see the on-going process for a York furnace, starting at the factory and ending in a customers’ home!!

5 facts about Tankless Water Heaters

Being a Navien Certified Installer, Hellgate Plumbing always recommends upgrading to a tankless water heating system provided by Navien. Here are some facts about Navien tankless water heaters:

• Navien tankless water heaters supply an endless amount of hot water, which means it continuously heats the water when you need it. They do not have a limited supply of hot water that runs out, unlike a standard tank water heater where you have to wait for it to refill and reheat. You can be taking a shower and bath at the same time you’re doing laundry or the dishes!

• They only use energy when you use hot water. Tank water heaters store hot water just in case you need it, but that is a very inefficient use of energy and it costs you more money. Tankless water heaters are extremely efficient, and they aren’t as harmful to the environment!

• Most on-demand water heaters can have a longer life expectancy compared to tank water heaters. A longer life could ultimately lead to a more affordable alternative!

• Tankless water heaters are hung on the wall, which can save you a great amount of space!

• Certain Navien tankless water heaters are equipped with ComfortFlow technology, which means it has an intelligent pre-heating function that helps determine your daily habits. If you take showers around the same time every day, the recirculation timer can help save water and money by making sure hot water is ready to go at that specific time!
