Navien Water Heater Reviews

Navien tankless water heaters are quite different than many of the other brands to be reviewed on this site. For starters, they are powered by gas and propane. Secondly, they are often much more expensive than other tankless heaters, but result not only in substantial savings as the years go by, but energy credits when you put them in.

These tankless heaters are also different in that they come in large sizes and often have no trouble at all in keeping a house in hot water with no interruptions. Owners who have switched to this brand love that they do not have to wait to take a shower after someone before them has, for instance. Other positives for this brand include relatively easy installation and its 10-year warranty.

As for complaints, there has been some discussion of difficulty in correctly analyzing problems if the units have issues. All can appear fine, but gas smells and inconsistent heating do sometime arise and can be difficult to diagnose for correct repair.

If you can get past the high initial price tags, then Navien might be a great choice for you if you prefer gas heaters of the tankless variety. The robust model NR-240A has drawn the most positive reviews.
