Noritz Tankless Water Heaters
Noritz Tankless Water Heaters
How does it work?
1) A hot water tap is opened...
2) The water enters the heater.
3) A water flow sensor detects the water flow.
4) The computer automatically ignites the burner.
5) The water circulates through the heat exchanger (coil).
6) The heat exchanger instantly heats the water at the designated temperature.
(this takes only 5 seconds)
7) The heater can provide you with endless hot water continuously. No more running out of hot water in the middle of a shower!
8) When the hot water tap is turned off, the unit shuts down automatically. Using only the BTU’s needed for one application.
Q. General Limited Warranty covered?
A. Our tankless water heaters do not hold any hot water. By turning on the faucet, the cold water flow through the flow sensor will turn on the burner. The minimum flow rate to do this is 0.50gpm. The cold water will be heated up to 180ºF if desired. This allows the Noritz tankless water heaters to have a 10 year limited warranty.
