Product Profile: Tankless Water Heaters

January 15, 2022

At Creekstone, we take our reputation as an environmentally caring home builder in Colorado Springs CO seriously. We try to build homes that exceed the requirements for energy efficiency to help the environment and to help your wallet. One way we do that is by offering tankless water heaters as an option for our clients. They’re energy efficient but still make your life easier with constant hot water.

We use the Rheem brand of tankless water heater. The Rheem Prestige® RTGH is a series of high-efficiency condensing tankless gas water heaters that provide continuous hot water. This is the kind of feature just about every family will love. Showers become less of a daily argument when there’s a constant source of hot water. You can shower, wash dishes, and more without risk of running out of hot water and having to wait to finish what you were doing.

Energy StarⓇ rated, they feature a stainless steel condensing heat exchanger and built-in condensate neutralizer. Among the standout reasons to have such a water heater is the water saving setting that can save homeowners up to 1,100 gallons of water a year by decreasing flow until the temperature reaches the determined temperature. It also features a minimum flow rate of .26 gallons per minute (GPM) and minimum activation flow rate of .40 GPM to ensure you receive hot water even in low demand situations. The recirculation pump kit provides faster hot water at the tap and savings of up to 12,000 gallons of water each year, plus, with the hot start programming, you minimize the cold water bursts by staying ready for back-to-back hot water needs.

In addition to all of that, there’s an optional maintenance notice setting that alerts the homeowner after 500 hours of use to call for a standard service check. It also has a self-diagnostic system for easy service. Plus, being in Colorado, plenty of homeowners will appreciate  its high-altitude capability – up to 8,400 ft. above sea level.

This tankless water heater can save water and money, positive qualities all around. Plus, you don’t run out of hot water and experience those dreaded freezing cold moments in the shower. There’s a lot to like about this type of heater. So if you’re interested, talk to us about this and other energy saving features we offer in our homes. As a concerned home builder in Colorado Springs CO, we want to build homes that are efficient but still comfortable, which is why we look for products like this.
