Energy Efficient | Tankless Water Heaters Arlington
The Noritz tankless water heater is a leading brand in a growing number of manufacturers. In fact, Noritz is a pioneer of the industry, manufacturing water heaters for more than sixty years. Benjamin Franklin Plumbing proudly installs the energy efficient Noritz brand of tankless water heaters in Arlington.
While there are a growing number of tankless manufacturers, our plumbers consider customer satisfaction a priority, and we know from extensive experience that Noritz delivers on its promises, while a growing number of brands manufactured overseas are producing less than desirable quality.
For those who are concerned about the environment, Noritz water heaters offer significantly reduced carbon emissions. To give you an idea of the potential impact of tankless water heaters, if all homes in the U.S. used a Noritz, the energy saved would be the equivalent of removing six million cars from our roads.
Built to Last
Composed of quality stainless steel and copper, Noritz tankless water heaters are built to last. Tankless units provide up to a 20-year lifespan under normal circumstances, while conventional tank water heaters typically last only 7 to 10 years. To place this in perspective, you will purchase 2 to 3 conventional water heaters during the lifespan of a single tankless water heater, and would miss the energy savings altogether.
Tankless technology by Noritz is an investment in your home’s energy efficiency, one that begins paying you back from day one. Its energy efficiency, long lifespan and low maintenance needs enables tankless water heaters in Arlington to more than pay for itself during its lifespan.

Tankless Water Heaters and Hard Water
As with other water heaters, tankless water heaters in Arlington can experience lime scale buildup in hard water. Manufacturer Noritz recommends cleaning with vinegar when scaling becomes a problem. The frequency is dependent upon the hardness your water. While 85% of the nation has hard water, the degree of hardness varies. The harder your home’s water is, the more frequently any water heater will require descaling. In a tankless water heater, water moves through the system rather than being stored.
However, scale will eventually accumulate and activate scale detection software (when present), with an error message for cleaning. In areas of extreme hard water cleaning may be required annually, while those with softer water may require cleaning every five years or somewhere in between. The installation of a water softener can reduce your water hardness, preventing a number of hard water issues throughout the home.
Is it Really Instant Hot Water?
When you open a hot water tap and water begins to flow through tankless water heaters in Arlington, a sensor detects the water’s incoming temperature and begins to heat the water. The heated water travels through the pipe delivering it to the open tap. This can take a few seconds, as water remaining in the pipes will empty out, before hot water arrives at the tap. This is true for all water heaters.
Long pipe runs are an additional problem for any water heater. If long pipe runs and a wait for hot water is a problem, consider installing a point-of-use tankless water heater in the affected room. With its close proximity to the faucets, the delivery of nearly instant hot water will eliminate long wait times.
Advice for Single Tankless Households
Tankless water heaters have a lower flow rate capacity than storage tanks. Try to limit yourself to one hot water activity at a time if you are using a single tankless heater. For example, do not turn the dishwasher on until you finish a shower. This will decrease the demand on the tankless unit, and you will enjoy endless hot water.
