Noritz to Unveil New, Industry-Leading, 25-Year Warranty at AHR 2019
Unprecedented protection for four select residential water heaters will highlight Noritz’s participation at the 2019 AHR Expo in Atlanta. Booth C6158 will also showcase new tankless water heater and combination boiler products.
Established in 1930, the AHR Expo has long been known as the premier showcase for engineers, contractors and educators to learn about the newest technologies and emerging trends in the HVACR industry. To be held January 14-16, this year’s event will again welcome manufacturers of all sizes and types from around the world to share their latest ideas and innovations.
As a leader in tankless water heater and combination-boiler solutions, Noritz will be demonstrating how these technologies can be effectively utilized in residential and commercial applications.
But highlighting this year’s presentation in Booth C6158 will be the company’s new and unprecedented 25-year warranty on the dual stainless-steel heat exchangers used by four of its residential condensing tankless water heaters: the EZTR50, EZTR75, EZ98, and EZ111.
Effective January 1, this industry-leading protection is a full decade longer than the longest warranty currently on the market in North America and more than double Noritz’s previous warranty on these four products. The 25-year warranty will apply to single-family home applications using any of the four EZ Series models.
In addition to the formal unveiling of the 25-year warranty, Noritz will showcase a number of other, recently introduced, energy-efficient products, including:
- Recirculation Pump Kit: Previously available only as a fully integrated circulator in the NRCP line of condensing tankless water heaters, the new RPK-EXT Kit is now available as an add-on component to 26 additional Noritz residential models. The pump provides hot water to the outlet in seconds, shutting off once a sensor in the hot-water line detects the flow has reached a preset temperature. The RPK-EXT Kit includes the RC-9018M Commercial Remote Control, allowing homeowners to customize run times for when they will need hot water.
- The NCC199CDV: The NCC199CDV condensing tankless water heater from Noritz is approved for common-venting up to six units in commercial applications. Common venting drastically reduces the number of required venting terminations, saving professional installers time and labor. Up to 24 of these 199,900 BTU per hour units can be linked together, yielding up to a 266:1 turndown ratio. Such applications would use the Multi-Unit System Controller, which offers the most control options on the market, including application functions for recirculation loops and supplemental storage tanks.BTU input can range from 18,000 to 4.8 million (for a 24-unit system), The WIFI-enabled unit has a thermal efficiency rating of 98 percent, the industry’s highest, making it EPA ENERGY STAR® It has a maximum flow rate of 11.1 gallons per minute.
- The NRCB: The Noritz Residential Combination Boiler (NRCB) allows for simultaneous residential domestic hot water and space heating without sacrificing user comfort or convenience. The unit’s simultaneous capabilities are easy to control and especially beneficial for applications that do not store or deliver heat energy efficiently. Performing at a 95% AFUE (Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency), the unit is EPA ENERGY STAR® certified. The NRCB’s 316L stainless steel primary and secondary heat exchangers have higher corrosion resistance than traditional heat exchangers for increased durability and
- EZ Series: The EZ Series of high-efficiency, condensing tankless water heaters are designed to cut installation time and cost when replacing larger, storage tank-type units. The Energy Star-rated EZ98-DV and EZ111-DV (Energy Factor: 0.97) join the previously released EZTR40 to provide professional installers and their homeowner-customers with a wider range of tankless options, covering the majority of residential, tank-replacement opportunities. Both models include top-mount water connections, maximum venting flexibility and the possibility of reusing the existing tank unit’s half-inch gas line.
