New Apartment Complex Relies On Double-Duty Combi Boiler

The Promenade at Creekside installed the NRCB to provide residents with both water and space heating simultaneously without sacrificing comfort or convenience.

The NRCB is the first combination boiler that provides simultaneous water and space heating for residential applications. Performing at a 95% AFUE (Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency), it is the optimal solution for creating a home that maximizes energy efficiency and occupant comfort.

Zack Peterson, an environmental consultant for JP&K Construction Management Inc. (San Diego), describes the NRCB as the ideal solution for the 108-unit Promenade at Creekside Apartment Complex in San Marcos, CA. He recently sat down with Noritz to explain what led his company to select this product.

Question (Q): Is this your first installation with Noritz? What can you tell us about the project?

Zack Peterson: This will be our first experience with Noritz. We are currently in the second phase of a 12-building project. At this phase, we have 43 units for low-income housing in San Marcos.

Q: Can you tell us why you chose to go with Noritz Combi Technology?

Peterson: We decided to go with Combi Technology instead of an air handler due to Title 24, Part Six, regulations in California. These are very stringent environmental compliance regulations, requiring us to curb building energy use to minimize it below a certain threshold. A combi boiler would be a no-brainer since it easily achieves this regulation.

Q: Why did your company choose to go with Noritz over other tankless systems?

Peterson: It is a smarter system. We had other tankless water heater system companies utilized in the first phase of our project, but they did not work out very well.  The other issue we had with tankless water heaters in the past is that they cannot run hot air and hot water at the same time. With Noritz, we finally found a system that can perform both functions.

It provides a nice balance and the system communicates with us. If there is ever an issue with the system, it will tell us the problem, which makes this kind of diagnosis easier for us to identify and then fix for the occupant.
