Tankless Water Heater and Boiler Installation in Washington, DC
This chimney in NW D.C. has a terra cotta liner that has deteriorated and collapsed. The cost to reline it would be very high due to it's height and difficulty to access from the slate roof. In addition to the chimney problems the heat exchanger in the 23 year old heating boiler was clogged. Both the chimney and the heat exchanger would need to be fixed in order to restore the boiler to safe operating conditions.
Our customer opted instead to have Real Plumbers install a new High Efficiency Crown Phantom Boiler and a High Efficiency Noritz Tankless Water Heater. Both products exhaust directly outside eliminating the need for the chimney. Both products qualify for rebates from DC SEU of $800
