Best Water Heaters for 2024 Guide

There are many different water heaters to choose from. We've compiled a list of some of the best water heaters in 2024. In fact, this article will cover the two main types of water heaters that we sell and find to be the best: 1) Navien tankless water heaters and 2) Rheem tank water heaters. If you are considering a new water heater for your home, read this guide to help your decision-making process.

Navien Tankless Water Heaters

If you are looking to save on utility costs while providing your household with a near-endless supply of hot water, check out Navien tankless water heaters. Compared to traditional tank water heaters, Navien tankless systems heaters represent the technological future of water heating for home use. With several series to choose from, these high-efficiency tankless designs offer the end-user three key benefits: reliable hot water, efficient utility costs, and minimal storage space.

Traditional water heaters utilize large tanks to store a limited supply of hot water for use when needed. A Navien tankless water heater makes up for each of these shortcomings. First, rather than storing a limited amount of water for use when needed, this system utilizes a built-in reticulation pump and buffer tank. This allows for water to be heated only when needed faster, in addition to avoiding cold water sandwiches. Second, by not requiring a near-constant fuel source to heat the stored warm water, a Navien tankless water heater helps the end user save greatly on fuel costs. Third, a Navien tankless water heater utilizes much less space than traditional water heaters, with unit series ranging from 70-80% smaller on average. In addition to these advantages, this system also sports a longer lifespan than traditional water heaters.

Navien offers both condensing and non-condensing models of their tankless water heaters. Each model series features slight differences depending on your unique home water needs while maintaining an efficient, consistent, and reliable hot water flow. At Estes Services, we offer Navient tankless water heater solutions for your home. Once you schedule a water heater consultation with us, we will walk you through the various factors to consider when selecting a tankless water heater, including type of unit, fuel source, flow rate and temperature rise, layout, labor, and installation complexity.
