Featuring NRC98, Higher Efficiency and Easier PVC Venting, the ENERGY STAR-qualified tankless water heater offers an Energy Factor of 0.93, plus the ability to create longer PVC vent runs, instead of stainless steel. 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.
