Tankless Water Heaters
In addition to all the usual tankless features like an endless supply of hot water and space savings, the Navien "Condensing 98%" is the most environmentally friendly tankless water heater on the market.
The Navien tankless hot water heaters eliminate more than 85% of the flue gas wasted by standard tankless water heaters, reducing CO2 emissions by at least 420 lbs less per unit per year. That equates to the photosynthesis work of approximately 14 trees or driving a car 420 miles less per year.
Navien come in BTU ranges (maximum input) from 150,000 to 199,000 and can deliver flow rates up to 11 gallons per minute, making them the best in their class.
Because of its much higher efficiency, Navien heats more water with less BTUs so when comparing with conventional noncondensing tankless water heater, be sure to compare outputs not inputs!
