A series of successful installations has made construction manager Cliff Holden a big believer in tankless water heating systems for the school-building projects he oversees. Since 2007, the 15-unit Burleson (Texas) Independent School District (BISD) has erected six new educational facilities under Holden?s direction, and the latest three have all featured multiple-unit, tankless solutions ? in no small part because he wholeheartedly championed the idea.
The newest of these projects is also the largest and most complex: the 550,000-square-foot Centennial High School in Burleson, about 12 miles due south of Fort Worth. Centennial?s hot-water delivery strategy features three multi-unit systems, encompassing a total of 25 tankless water heaters from Noritz America. These units feed food-service and culinary kitchens as well as locker-room sinks and showers in the main building; plus locker room facilities in the adjacent, standalone, indoor-practice field house.

His work has transformed fading historic properties and restored architectural treasures. Being entrusted with such impressive tasks is something Balbes takes very seriously.
Balbes has selected Noritz tankless water heaters for all his renovations. ?I?ve used [them] in my development projects exclusively over the last eight to 10 years,? he says. ?I?m very committed to Noritz because of the quality of the product.?
With tankless water heaters, there is no need to store heated water, as with conventional tank-type heaters. The medicine-cabinet size of tankless units belies a powerful design that heats water only as needed for immediate delivery to the outlet or appliance. That?s not just a valuable convenience for the properties Balbes restores; it is also an important, cost efficiency benefit, he says. With tankless technology, energy is never wasted storing a limited supply of hot water.

Hot water is the lifeblood of any restaurant kitchen operation. Lacking a sufficient and ready supply at the correct temperatures, as prescribed by local health authorities, facility management usually has no choice but to lock the doors until the problem is fixed.
Despite the vital importance of hot water, delivering the right quantities to the right outlets at the right temperatures ? especially during operational peaks ? is an anxious, uphill battle for many managers. Whether the culprit is undersized equipment, poor installation or inadequate maintenance, many restaurants routinely endure a tense can?t-live-with/can?t-live-without relationship with their commercial water heaters.

Designed for smaller residential applications, including multi-family dwellings, the ENERGY STAR-qualified NRC83 delivers an Energy Factor of 0.92 to 0.94, plus the ability to vent with installer-friendly plastic pipe, instead of stainless steel.
FOUNTAIN VALLEY, CALIF. (JANUARY 5, 2012)? Noritz has expanded its ecoTOUGH? Series of gas-fired residential condensing tankless water heaters with the new NRC83, an ENERGY STAR®-rated unit designed for smaller homes and multi-family dwellings. Available in both indoor (the two-pipe, direct vent NRC83-DV) and outdoor (NRC83-OD) models, the new wall-mounted units have an energy factor (EF) of 0.92 for natural gas and 0.94 with liquid propane ? approximately 30 points higher than a standard, storage tank-type, gas-fired water heater.

Targeting both trade and consumers, two new customer-service initiatives aim to deliver technical data and product literature more quickly and efficiently, while addressing common questions about tankless water heaters.FOUNTAIN VALLEY, CALIF. (NOVEMBER 29, 2011) ? Noritz America recently unveiled two customer-service initiatives ? a Technical Support Web Site and an In-House Call Center ? with the goal of delivering information more quickly and efficiently to customers, whether their preferred method is the telephone or online. Targeting both trades people and consumers, the web site went live on Nov. 1, while the new call center began operations inside the company’s Orange County headquarters on Nov. 28.The origins of both initiatives can be found in the product application and installation questions that contractors and homeowners routinely ask Noritz sales and service personnel on a daily basis, according to Scott Isaksen, manager of Application Engineering, who led the multi-department team that developed the initiatives.For a complete press release, click here.
FOUNTAIN VALLEY, CALIF. (JULY 7, 2011)? The ENERGY STAR®-rated NRC98, the newest addition to the Noritz ecoTOUGH? Series of gas-fired residential condensing tankless water heaters, has an Energy Factor of 0.93, a rating that is nearly 10 points higher than that of a comparably sized, conventional tankless unit. The 0.93 EF is also approximately 30 points higher than a standard, tank-type gas-fired water heater.
With a maximum flow rate of 9.8 gallons per minute (gpm) and temperature settings from 100°F to 140°F, the new NRC98 protects the environment by heating water strictly on demand, while offering a longer product life cycle than storage tank-type models. In addition, it promises lower emissions, reduced electrical consumption, smaller amounts of potentially hazardous construction materials, and easier recyclability of those materials and components once the product is removed from service.
Featuring a standard Btu input range of 16,000 to 180,000, the NRC98 Tankless Water Heater is engineered to fully meet the domestic hot water needs of northern residences with two bathrooms and southern homes with three baths. A two-pipe direct vent model for indoor installation, the NRC98-DV, will be available for shipment August 1. An outdoor model, the NRC98-OD, will be available during the fourth quarter of this year.

The CSUN project started in July of 2009 when Watson commissioned P2S Engineering to do a feasibility study. Could the university simply replace the four existing boilers with up-to-date and more efficient models, thereby generating all the hot water the apartments needed, while also fully complying with SCAQMD restrictions?
?We came up with several options,? Valiensi says. ?The main alternative to a tankless solution was a boiler with a 200-gallon storage tank. At 8 pounds per gallon of water plus the structure to support it, the storage tank idea was not cost-effective. We would have had to launch a complete structural study and upgrade the building. Because of earthquake regulations, the engineering costs would have gotten really high.?
Suttles adds: ?Tankless was the only practical option. The university would?ve had to restructure that roof to support the weight of any boiler-and-tank system.?

Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, one of the most popular reality shows in television history, today welcomed Noritz America, the world?s leading manufacturer of tankless water heaters, as a Preferred Vendor for Season 6. The two-time, Emmy Award-winning reality series, which is emphasizing a more “green” approach this season, will utilize Noritz tankless water heaters on all builds that use natural gas or liquid propane.
Noritz America, the leader of tankless technology, introduces the N-0751M-DVC, a new tankless water heater aimed at combining the advancements and power of the 751 Series with the convenience of concentric venting available mid 2008.
Noritz is proud to introduce our tankless condensing heaters, the next generation in tankless technology. This innovation utilizes a dual heat exchanger – a fusion of stainless steel and copper heat exchangers. The stainless steel component captures the residual heat from the exhaust temperature to preheat the incoming water before it runs through the main copper heat exchanger. This results in dramatic reduction of carbon dioxide and increases the heater’s efficiency level to over 93%! Another benefit of this technology is lower exhaust temperatures, which means less costly PVC can be used for its venting.
