  • Two Stainless Steel Heat Exchangers

    Two Stainless Steel Heat Exchangers

    • Provides longer life expectancy as they are highly resistant to corrosion and erosion compared to copper heat exchangers.
    • Reduces minerals deposits.
  • Low NOx Emissions (≤ 20ppm)

    Low NOx Emissions (≤ 20ppm)

    • New metal fiber burner is designed to deliver a consistent air/gas mixture improving combustion efficiency.
    • Results in less acid rain and less green house effect.
    • Complies with SCAQMD 1146.2 strict NOx emissions standard.
  • 2

    2” PVC, CPVC, Polyprophylene Venting Up To 60’

    • 2” venting option allows for a flue to be pulled through the existing vent.
    • 3” vents can be used up to 150’ with standard 2” x 3” adapters.
  • Better Adaptability to Gas System

    Utilizes Existing 1/2″ Gas Line

    • The Negative Pressure Gas Valve and fan with dual venturi operation allows for better adaptability to low gas pressure situations.
    • Makes it possible for the NHB to be installed with ½” gas lines up to 24’.
  • Field Convertible

    Field Convertible

    • NHB models allow for easy convertibility from NG to LP.
  • Low NOx Emissions (≤ 20ppm)
