Navien introduced three new innovative products in booth 1573 during AHR 2020 in Orlando, FL. The new NPN series non-condensing tankless water heaters, NPE-2 series condensing tankless water heaters, and NCB-H series condensing combi-boilers were all displayed at the front of the Navien booth inside the Orange County Convention Center for attendees to get a first look of the industry-leading technological advancements within each series.
Available in the NPN-Universal series (indoor or outdoor with vent cap) and NPN-Exterior series (outdoor only), Navien utilizes the technology and innovation that helped make the NPE series the number one condensing tankless water heater in North America in their new non-condensing NPN series, with some new additional features. The NPN series is the first and only non-condensing tankless series to offer NaviTech™ technology that includes a stainless-steel heat exchanger and an advanced stainless-steel burner with the same very low NOx level as the NPE. Both the NPN-U and NPN-E have built-in recirculation control, air pressure sensor, water adjustment valve, and mixing valve, and are designed with a pin-to-pin matching configuration for easy retrofit installations.
The NPE-2 series brings the biggest update to condensing tankless water heaters since the NPE series changed the landscape of the industry in 2012. The new features found in the NPE-A2 and NPE-S2 series include a turndown ratio up to 15:1, an upgraded advanced multi-line control panel in plain English for easy set up, and increased 2” PVC venting length. The NPE-2 will continue to offer the high-efficiency features that made the NPE the number one selling condensing tankless water heater, such as dual stainless steel heat exchangers, half-inch gas pipe capability up to 24 feet, cascade and common vent capability, industry leading efficiency up to 0.97 UEF, and the patented ComfortFlow™ recirculation system with built-in pump and buffer tank on the NPE-A2.
NCB-H (high output) series condensing combi-boilers are packed with industry leading upgrades to the popular NCB-E series, including industry leading BTU output on DHW, 15:1 turndown ratio, a more dynamic BTU lineup with added models, greater DHW performance, a new DHW module with flow control, enhanced controls with multi-line text display, increased 2” PVC venting length, easy serviceability with upfront 3-way valve, and built-in controls for up to 3 zones.
