Here is what you can expect from Albert Nahman Plumbing and Heating when we install a tankless water heater for you.  When comparing estimates, please be sure to compare apples to apples. Our fixed  cost estimate will typically include the following:

  • A new tankless or hybrid water heater from Takagi, Noritz, Rinnai, Eternal, Navien or Bosch which will be sized and located in accordance with your needs, best practices and the requirements specified by the manufacturer’s installation manual.  This will insure that the unit is covered under warranty and will perform as specified with maximum longevity.
  • Plumbing and electrical permits for the work.  This includes an inspection to assure you that we have met the requirements of the California Plumbing and Electrical Code as well as that of the governing local inspecting agencies.
  • A professional 1-day installation.  You can be certain that you will not be left without hot water overnight.
  • A new dedicated gas line which will be sized for the demand of the unit and tested for leaks in accordance with the Code.
  • An automatic whole house gas shutoff valve (earthquake valve) can be installed for a nominal charge at the time of installation.  Please ask your estimator about this.
  • The gas supply to the heater is normally “hard piped” for maximum unit stability and includes a readily accessible ball valve shut-off.
  • A hot and cold water shutoff and drain valve kit is installed for ease of servicing.
  • We will provide and install at least 5’ of copper piping on the cold and hot water side of the heater as well as install closed cell foam pipe insulation to minimize heat loss in the piping.  In many cases we will install more copper piping, please reference the proposal for details.
  • Flue terminations will be sealed and flush mounted to the building exterior for maximum serviceability, protection and aesthetic appeal.
  • We will provide a switch (not a pig-tail) to satisfy the electrical disconnect requirement of the job.   The switch will have an additional fuse which will ensure maximum protection of the electronic circuitry of the tankless heater.
  • Provide a new circuit in the electrical panel with appropriate label and breaker, where required.
  • The hot, cold and gas pipe are “bonded” as required by Code
  • We will flush the piping and test for the proper operation and temperature of the tankless heater.
  • Remove old water heater and recycle it.
  • Eliminate or cap old flues or gas and water piping and patch walls as necessary.  See proposal for details.
  • Clean work area of all debris.  We will leave it cleaner than when we started….guaranteed!
  • We will record and retain the model and serial number of your new tankless water heater in our computer database.   We will assist you in registering your new appliance as well as direct you to the proper forms so that you can apply for applicable tax credits.
  • 100% Customer Satisfaction Guarantee
  • 5 Year Warranty on Labor.
  • Free 1-year check-up from the date of installation.
  • If your tankless heater need repair or service, Albert Nahman Plumbing and Heating is an authorized service provider (ASP) for Rinnai, Takagi, Bosch and Noritz.
