More About Each

A Gas non-condensing tankless water heater.

How Do Non-Condensing Gas Tankless Water Heaters Work?

State non-condensing tankless water heaters save space and supply continuous hot water for your home. A single heat exchanger heats the water to the set temperature you determine through unique non-condensing technology. Water flows through the heat exchanger and is heated by hot exhaust gases to the correct temperature. If any excess heat is not absorbed by the water, it is expelled through exhaust venting. Alongside a 15-year limited warranty, State non-condensing tankless water heaters can offer reliable hot water on demand in your home for years to come.

The main difference between non-condensing and condensing gas tankless water heaters lies in the efficiency. Condensing units make maximum use of the energy they take in through a dual heat exchanger by further utilizing the heat from the exhaust to heat the water quickly. Non-condensing gas tankless water heaters use a single heat exchanger.

Non-condensing gas tankless water heaters are able to deliver continuous hot water, but only when sized appropriately for the home and its residents.

Do tankless water heaters need a drain?
Ask your contractor whether your non-condensing gas tankless water heater needs a drain. It should not need a drain, while a condensing gas tankless water heater will need a drain.

How do I keep my tankless water heater from freezing?
While all State tankless water heaters include built-in protection against freezing, you will need to drain water from the unit if the heater is installed outdoors. This will help prevent freezing during power outages. We recommend hiring a professional licensed contractor to safely install your new unit.

What do I need?
Determine the incoming groundwater temperature, your home’s piping and setup, and the right size water heater for your needs. To do so, think through your home’s size and the number of people who will be using hot water and when and how it will be used on a typical day. You may consult State’s online XPERT™ Product Selector to help you choose a unit.

Where should I install it?
Due to its compact size and venting options, a tankless water heater can be installed almost anywhere in your home, including closets, laundry rooms, garages, and more. Outdoors on the exterior of the house is also an option if located in a warmer climate with no risk of freezing.

To determine the right size water heater for your needs, you may discuss options with a professional installer. You may also use State’s online XPERT™ Product Selector to help you choose a unit. Ultimately, the proper size comes down to the incoming groundwater temperature, the type of appliances you own, the number of people in your home, and the usage of hot water.

State’s condensing tankless water heaters boast some of the highest efficiency models for tankless water heaters. State’s condensing models have over 0.90 UEF (Uniform Energy Factor) and come with a 15-year limited warranty.
