FINAL UPDATE: Commercial Project: 8 Navien Tankless Water Heaters

Hello everyone! Well, we have finally completed this project!

This has been a crazy process for Hellgate Plumbing. It was extremely insightful but very stressful as well. We are so happy to have completed this project and we are thrilled to have our name tagged with this work! The system is running great, and we are pumping out 125 degree water at 46 gallons a minute, which is fantastic!

If you want to look into this project further, visit the page “Our Work” on our website or check out our Facebook page!

We want to thank everyone for the continued support and business. We hope this project can help show our hard work and our ability to make this complicated project look clean and organized!

 

UPDATE: Commercial Project: 8 Navien Tankless Water Heaters

UPDATE!

Good morning everyone! Over the last week, we have managed to mount all of the Navien tankless water heaters to the mounting brackets, set-up the gas, hot and cold water piping, and completed the majority of the venting. The venting was easily the hardest part on this project as we not only had to follow plumbing code, but we wanted it to look clean and organized. We are very proud of all the work we have accomplished so far! This week will be the finished product and we can’t wait to share that with everyone!

In the meantime, here are the photos from last week!

Commercial Project: 8 Navien Tankless Water Heaters

Hello everyone!

To start off 2019 with a big bang, Hellgate Plumbing is currently undergoing a large and exciting commercial project!

This project takes place at a local condominium, where they originally had two 80 gallon Bradford White natural gas water heaters to serve hot water for 46 units. After they both broke down over the holiday season, Hellgate Plumbing stepped in to save the day!

We will be replacing the old water heaters with a Navien tankless water heater system, using 8 tankless water heaters!! Using more than one Navien unit is called a “cascade” system, and a communication cable will link all of the water heaters together. One water heater will serve as the leader of the group, and once hot water demand exceeds its limit, the next water heater will kick on, and so on.

These systems are rarely shown in Missoula, let alone Montana! We are so thrilled to have our team work on this project, and it wouldn’t have been possible without the support and approval of the condominium board and property management company. Thank you for believing in our team and letting us work on a fantastic project!

We will continue to post pictures of this project, but here are some pictures from the project currently:

Navien Boiler & Water Heater Combination Unit

At Hellgate Plumbing, we like to provide our customers with the latest products! Just this week, we installed a brand new Navien boiler and water heater combination unit, providing your home with instant hot water, even if multiple people are needing hot water at the same time! These Navien combination units take up 80% less space than an average floor standing water heater and boiler system! Navien combination boilers are also the first high efficiency boiler to supply both heat and hot water to your home! These units also have the capability of linking with a Navien tankless water heater to supply larger amounts of hot water, and with add-ons like Navi-Link, you can control your boiler unit from anywhere in the world!

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!!

York Affinity Furnace with Honeywell Electric Air Cleaner

Hello everyone!

This week, Hellgate Plumbing replaced this old, bulky Heil 60 MBH furnace with a brand new York Affinity 60 MBH furnace! We also installed a Honeywell Electric Air Cleaner! This filter is ideal for those who have severe allergies to certain air particles.

Navien Tankless Water Heater with Navi-Link and Navien Hot Button

Hellgate Plumbing & Heating recently installed a Navien NPE-A high efficiency tankless water heater with a built-in buffer tank and re-circulation pump! Additionally, we installed a Navi-Link, which is a Wi-Fi remote control system that allows you to change the water temperature, turn the unit off, and monitor the system. All you need to do is download the Navi-Link app on your smartphone and you can control your water system anywhere in the world with Wi-Fi access!!

 

We also install Navien Hot Buttons! Hot Buttons are an awesome addition to your home. If you want your water to be hot before using the fixture, such as a bathtub or kitchen sink, press the button and the water will automatically warm the water up to that location before you turn the faucet on! You can install multiple Hot Buttons in your home, and it can save on water costs!

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!
