SEATTLE, Sept. 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Thinking of changing to a high-efficiency tankless water heater? Seattle has a new tankless water heater installation service powered by Noritz America that couldn't be easier.
Noritz, the world's leading tankless manufacturer, established www.noritz.com/installnow to provide a one-stop solution for Seattle-area homeowners to order and schedule a tankless installation and support our valued Noritz-trained and certified plumbing contractors by connecting them to prospective customers. Users can immediately view the complete package cost of a standard high-quality gas-fired tankless heater installation with materials and labor prior to purchase.
In addition to obtaining an immediate and competitive cost estimate online, Seattle homeowners can conveniently schedule the tankless water heater installation by simply entering the desired day and time into the website. Once the order is submitted, the professional plumbing contractor will perform the installation.
"The new service removes any uncertainty and inconvenience about selecting and installing this energy-saving technology," explains Jay Hassel, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for the Noritz America Corporation. "By answering three simple questions, homeowners can immediately review the complete, final installed cost online without a lengthy wait for an onsite visit or a call back from a contractor."
Easy online ordering process: Users can select a wide range of Energy Star® rated residential tankless heaters that can power between one to four showers simultaneously and offer thermal efficiency ratings between 83 percent to 94 percent. For homeowners uncertain about which Noritz model to select, the website features an online tutorial to help identify the unit best suited to a family's particular hot water demand. An energy tax rebate locator, as well as detailed product information and straightforward product sizing guides support the selection process.
Online orders submitted before 10 a.m. local time Monday through Saturday qualify for same-day installation – at no additional cost, making the site ideal for emergency situations. Additionally, the site offers several "Live Help" options so that users can immediately communicate with a Noritz "Tankless Expert" via telephone, email or online live chat.
A key component in a tankless unit, the heat exchanger, is warranted by Noritz for 12-years. Moreover, a Noritz tankless heater will maintain its 83 percent to 94 percent efficiency throughout its 20-year life expectancy, whereas a standard tank-type unit's 60 percent efficiency will drop over its eight- to 10-year lifecycle. And, unlike a tank water heater, all parts are replaceable.
The online ordering program assures customers of a professional, factory-certified installation process, including full warranty protection on both the product and the labor. "Not only does the consumer benefit, but we are actively bringing business to our licensed plumbing contractor partners and streamlining the estimating process for them," adds Hassel. "From a business perspective, this enhances our longstanding sales approach through wholesalers."
Endless supply of hot water: According to Hassel, homeowners can substantially cut their monthly fuel bills by shifting from conventional tank-type water heaters to a Noritz tankless unit. Instead of wasting energy and money by continuously heating stored water when it is not needed, tankless water heaters save energy and protect the environment by heating water strictly on demand. As a result, energy consumption is based solely on actual hot water use.
Based on Energy Guide values, replacing a standard 50-gallon electric tank water heater with a gas-fired condensing tankless water heater can reduce annual energy costs by more than 60 percent, or $318 annually.
"A tankless water heater performs the same function as a conventional water heater, but does it in seconds, rather than hours, which allows homeowners to realize exceptional efficiency gains," says Hassel. "Once a water heater fails, a homeowner has a household crisis that demands immediate remedy, which tends to limit consideration of the replacement options. This site seeks to resolve the time-constraint issue by streamlining the estimating and scheduling process."
Prices for products and services reflect costs for the water heater and all necessary materials and labor to perform standard installations to the manufacturer's specifications, and are subject to written agreement between the homeowner and Noritz-authorized installer. Flexible monthly financing agreements are also offered through the Noritz installation program.
Since 1951, Noritz has been developing, creating and perfecting gas-operated heating products. Noritz America was established in 2001 to address the emerging concerns over energy consumption and introduce the company's tankless water heater to the world.
