August 7, 2014
The ENERGY STAR-qualified NRCP98-DV and the NRCP1112-DV, with an Energy Factor of 0.95, use a built-in pump to circulate hot water on demand, eliminating long waits at the shower and the wasting of water and energy down the drain.
The new NRCP line of residential tankless water heaters from Noritz America combines the high efficiency of condensing technology with the comfort and savings of hot-water recirculation. A circulating pump inside the water heater keeps hot water close to the outlet, minimizing the wait and, therefore, the waste of unused potable water down the drain. Saving water, in this case, is doubly beneficial, because recirculation also avoids wasting the energy used to heat that water. more>>
May 12, 2014

Designed for smaller residential applications, including multi-family dwellings, the ENERGY STAR-qualified NRC83 delivers an Energy Factor of 0.92 to 0.94, plus the ability to vent with installer-friendly plastic pipe, instead of stainless steel.
Noritz has expanded its ecoTOUGH™ Series of gas-fired residential condensing tankless water heaters with the new NRC83, an ENERGY STAR®-rated unit designed for smaller homes and multi-family dwellings.

Its acclaimed athletic program boasts several alumni who have gone on to play in the NFL, the NBA and MLB. more>>
Looking to avoid the frustrating shutdowns of its previous system, Monday Night Brewing opts for a multiple-tankless solution. System redundancy keeps hot water flowing, even during maintenance, while prefabricated rack setup helps cut installed costs in half.
You might say that Joel Iverson was predestined to go tankless in his newest craft brewery in Atlanta. The co-founder of Monday Night Brewing (MNB) — with close friends Jonathan Baker and Jeff Heck — enjoyed first-hand the benefits of tankless water heating technology as a child, growing up in Japan, where he lived for 14 years. Limited natural resources in that country inevitably puts a premium on energy efficiency. Meanwhile, limited household square footage favors the small-to-nonexistent footprint tankless routinely provides. (Many Japanese mount their water heaters outdoors.) more>>
In rehabbing the space that would become the cutting-edge food emporium 4th Street Market, developer Ryan Chase had two goals: locate the water-heaters on the roof and track fuel consumption usage by tenant. Tankless technology helped him achieve both.
Plumber Sam Crandall remembers the job at the 4th Street Market in Santa Ana “as kind of a beast of a project.” Not that this 32-year-old contractor hesitated one bit in taking on the job when it was first offered to him – even after learning that other contractors had chosen not to get involved. more>>
Rooftop installations at the 182-unit Avalon Hayes Valley apartment complex couples 64 solar-thermal collectors with 18 tankless commercial units to meet all domestic hot water needs, while also helping project exceed the California Title 24 energy code by nearly 30 percent.
When, in September 2015, the 182-unit Avalon Hayes Valley apartment complex in San Francisco was awarded LEED® Platinum Certification in the Multifamily Midrise category, it was only the most recent expression of the ongoing commitment of AvalonBay Communities to environmental sustainability and corporate responsibility in its properties. The latter now number 282 developments, containing nearly 83,000 apartment homes in 11 states and the District of Columbia, with another 27 communities under development. more>>
After replacing faulty boilers with Noritz NCC1991 tankless water heaters, Indian River County Jail in Florida guaranteed its 400 inmates constant, on-demand hot water and saved nearly $50,000 over tank-types.
An uninterrupted flow of hot water is a modern necessity, especially when it comes to certain commercial applications. Without it, places like restaurants and hospitals would literally shut their doors – the inability to cook and clean properly would put peoples’ health at grave risk. more>>
One of many sustainable features at the new AVA 55 Ninth, a 3.6 million BTU/HR DHW system meets the hot-water needs of 273-unit building with a flow rate of 104.6 gpm. Solar hydrothermal preheating system boosts water temperature to maximize efficiency, while multiple redundant units help avoid costly shutdowns for servicing.
Tankless water heating technology has demonstrated its workability in a wide range of residential and commercial building projects over the past decade. The twin financial attractions of saving both energy and space – the units are frequently wall-hung and thus have a zero footprint – are the obvious drivers of this growth. In addition, many commercial building owners and managers have found the use of multiple, redundant tankless units to be an ideal strategy for applications – hotels, restaurants, etc. – that simply cannot afford to be without hot water even for an hour or two of maintenance. more>>
Contractor Matt Carver persuades homeowner to go tankless when the drip pan for a new tank water heater proves too large for the space. Reusing the same gas, water and vent lines as the tank system, Carver cuts installation time by more than half.
Persuading a homeowner to switch from tank to tankless in a water heater-replacement situation usually “takes a little bit of salesmanship,” admits Matt Carver, owner of MLC Plumbing Inc. in Kenner. Putting on the hard sell is a task most of us — plumbers included — would happily avoid. But having successfully worked with tankless technology for the past five years, Carver has become a true believer, both professionally and personally... more>>
Little League® International must clean more than 200 baseball uniforms daily during its annual Baseball World Series. But its hot-water needs are far below that peak the rest of the year. A new, 9-unit, tankless system manages both extremes with ease.
The numbers themselves are a bit mind-boggling: more than 200 youth players and their adult coaches on 16 teams, hailing from nine different countries, including eight squads from every corner of the United States, playing 32 baseball games in 11 days. All of which is why there are few sporting events in this country or anywhere else on the planet that can match the pageantry, the excitement and the sheer inspiration of the annual Little League Baseball® World Series. (The 2013 undefeated winner was from Tokyo, having bested teams from the Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico, and Chula Vista, Calif., on its way to capturing the crown.) more>>
John Park lived the problem every day: too little hot water in his new home. What surprised him was the affordability of having his plumber replace his old tank water heater with a high-efficiency, tankless unit that also provides abundant hot water.
John Park has had a lot of “new” in his life of late – a new, three-bedroom, two-bath home in Huntington Beach and a new baby. Yet for all that is fresh and new in his young life, until recently he’s also had to contend with an age-old problem familiar to many homeowners: too little hot water from a tank-type water heater. more>>
Seeking to turn an “ugly duckling into a golden goose,” contractor J.R. Nunez upgrades an aging boiler-storage tank system with four, condensing tankless units. Rated 94%-efficient, they are projected to cut his fuel costs by thousands annually.
Why would a career plumbing contractor – a 20-year industry veteran with a thriving service business that already absorbs nearly all his waking hours – suddenly decide to try his hand at running a Laundromat? more>>
New Southern California affordable apartment community provides residents the latest in water heating technology that promises to save both energy and space.
Hundreds of details must come together to build any type of residential structure. For a new apartment community, increase the hundreds of details found with a single-family home by a factor of 10—maybe more. Some of those details are non-negotiable: code requirements, local zoning rules and energy-efficiency mandates, to name just a few. Others fall into what can be called the optional category: aesthetic considerations, plan modifications, product specifications or construction schedules. more>>
The innovative combination of an energy-saving wall-hung boiler, two condensing tankless water heaters and the mechanical skills of contractor Chuck Appleby delivers the lifestyle a customer wants without shrinking the livable space in her home.
Inventiveness is the economic engine of entrepreneurs. The quest to devise better ways and new solutions propels many a small business in this country, and Appleby Plumbing owner Chuck Appleby is no exception. This Old Saybrook, Conn., contractor has built a loyal and growing client base by researching new products that solve real problems for homeowners in this coastal region. more>>
Facilities Resource Group offers turnkey Noritz tankless water heating packages, prefabricating rack systems at its Michigan headquarters, shipping and installing them at restaurants nationwide with the help of local plumbing contractors.
Hot water is the lifeblood of any restaurant kitchen operation. Lacking a sufficient and ready supply at the correct temperatures, as prescribed by local health authorities, facility management usually has no choice but to lock the doors until the problem is fixed. more>>
550,000-square-foot Centennial High School complex is the latest successful tankless project for the Burleson (Texas) Independent School District, with 25 units in three systems delivering hot water to food-service and culinary arts kitchens, locker-room sinks and showers, and plumbing facilities in the field house
A series of successful installations has made construction manager Cliff Holden a big believer in tankless water heating systems for the school-building projects he oversees. Since 2007, the 15-unit Burleson (Texas) Independent School District (BISD) has erected six new educational facilities under Holden’s direction, and the latest three have all featured multiple-unit, tankless solutions — in no small part because he wholeheartedly championed the idea. more>>
Plumbing installer prefabs eight tankless units into a single multiunit system at each of four buildings, cutting energy consumption and complying with local emission-control standards while meeting the hot-water needs of student-residents.
Beverly Watson can easily laugh about the idea today, now that her recent tankless water heater retrofit project has been successfully completed and is fully meeting her requirements. But the associate director of operations for California State University, Northridge (CSUN), admits to wondering last summer while the work proceeded whether eight — as in eight tankless water heaters — were truly enough for her particular application. more>>
When the original boiler spec proves unworkable, hotel ownership switches to a 93%-efficient condensing tankless solution to save both space and fuel costs. With inputs up to 3.4 million BTU per hour, 17-unit system uses innovative common-venting approach to minimize exterior wall penetrations.
Saving space is invariably one of the prime attractions in switching from a storage tank-type water heater to a tankless system. Most applications involve mounting these medicine-cabinet-sized appliances on an exterior wall, which frees up precious floor space for more productive uses. Even multiple-unit commercial systems, whether hung on the wall or placed into some sort of racking system in the middle of a room, tend to command substantially less space than a comparably sized tank-type system. more>>
