Navien Tankless Water HeatersWhy Navien?How It Works

Navien’s Condensing tankless water heaters can provide you with an endless supply of hot water. Navien’s Condensing tankless water heaters provide hot water on demand. Navien achieves this by activating the unit the second you open a hot water tap, supplying you with an endless supply of hot water.

The Leader In Condensing Tankless Technology

In 2006, Navien, Inc. was established to open new markets in the United States and Canada for parent company KD Navien. Navien has since become one of the fastest growing companies in the home comfort sector in North America, providing condensing tankless gas water heaters and condensing combi boilers. Navien’s products possess state-of-the-art technology, high efficiency and reliable quality, making it the leader in the marketplace for tankless technology.

Navien has achieved international recognition for its sophisticated engineering and robust designs. Backed by more than thirty years of experience with advanced water heating technology, Navien will continue its mission to provide high quality products that are beneficial to both customers and the environment.

Conventional tank-type water heaters eventually run out of hot water when you take multiple draws in a row from the tank.

Since Navien Condensing tankless water heaters only provide hot water when you need it and can provide an endless supply of hot water, you never have to worry about running out of hot water no matter how many hot water draws you have in a row.

No. Description
1 When a hot water tap is opened the unit detects the flow.
2 The flow sensor activates to determine the amount of hot water needed.
3 The igniter activates.
4 The gas control valve opens to supply the correct amount of gas.
5 The fan and venturi activate to provide the correct amount of gas and fuel.
6 The premix burner ignites providing a flame to heat the water.
7 Cold water is pre heated in the secondary heat exchanger.
8 Pre heated water passes from the secondary to the primary heat exchanger.
9 The unit determines outgoing set temperature and adjusts the flame to heat the water
10 Heated water moves to the buffer tank
11 Desired hot water amount delivered to the faucet.

Rinnai Tankless Water HeatersWhy Rinnai?How It Works
“Tankless Solutions That Give You The Power To Live Better.”

An endless supply of hot water, whenever you need it—even for multiple tasks at the same time. Tankless Water Heaters revolutionize comfort, energy efficiency and convenience.

Save money, splurge on performance.

Designed for efficiency: Rinnai’s tankless technology features copper heat exchangers to provide maximum efficiency, and easily meet ENERGY STAR® qualifications and uses up to 40 percent less energy* than a traditional tank.

Save energy: By operating only when hot water is needed, and no storage tank to heat and reheat water, our tankless technology helps save on energy and utility costs. The use of an electronic igntion means no standing pilot light that constantly uses energy.

A smart investment: Increase your home’s value with premium technology, energy efficiency and an improved Home Energy Rating System (HERS) index score. Available energy efficiency rebates and tax credits offer the opportunity to help make your purchases more affordable.

Multiple sizes: Rinnai gives you options to right-size your installation and customize your efficiency.

Replace parts, not systems: Every part of a Rinnai Tankless Water Heater is replaceable. Components can be easily exchanged, if needed, versus replacing the entire system.

Save space with a compact design.

Maximum output, minimum space: About the size of a small suitcase, at 18.5” x 26” x 10” or smaller, a Rinnai can be installed on any wall or in compact spaces. These wall-mounted units can be installed on the interior or exterior wall of the home to free up valuable space.

Flexible installation: Small size allows for installation in non-traditional spaces such as crawl spaces and attics, making it perfect for use in any size home, including manufactured and modular homes.

Stay green with a sustainable choice.

Earth-friendly efficiency: Our tankless technology achieves maximum energy efficiency, helping to conserve natural resources.

Less waste: Compact heat exchanger design, longer product lifespan compared to a traditional tank** and recycleable parts means less waste in landfills.

High standards for low emissions: Lower CO2 emissions contribute to cleaner air and a healthier environment.

  • When the need for hot water arises by turning on a shower, washing machine, dishwasher or faucet, cold water enters the Rinnai Tankless Water Heater from the inlet pipe at the bottom of the unit. The PC board is then signaled to activate the flame igniter or ignition.
  • A combustion fan turns on to allow oxygen into the burner to ignite the flame as the gas control valve opens at a low frequency. Once an adequate flame is present the igniter stops sparking — beginning the next sequence of operation in a matter of seconds.
  • Water is heated as it passes through the coils of the copper heat exchanger, and exits from the hot water outlet pipe to travel through the pipes of the home or business to the water fixture where hot water is needed. For Condensing models, the water is preheated as it passes through a secondary stainless steel (latent) heat exchanger, capturing any extra heat (or latent heat) before it escapes into the vent system.
  • The gas valve and blower automatically adjust the incoming gas and oxygen to meet the water heating demands. If the demand is small, the Rinnai Tankless Water Heater can use a smaller flame and less gas. If the demand is greater, the flame can expand across the width of the entire burner to heat more water. The tankless water heater adjusts as needed to ensure the temperature set point is maintained. A digital controller allows the user to choose his desired temperature.
  • As the hot water fixture shuts off, cold water stops entering the tankless water heater and the flame diminishes. The combustion fan continues to operate at a low speed for a short period of time. This allows the exhaust of any leftover combustion gases.
