Highlights

Models review

Noritz NR66-OD is an outdoor unit that does not require venting, and except residential homes can be installed and used in manufactured or mobile homes.

Features

Modulating burner

The NR66-OD model is equipped with the modulating, high-performance gas burner that works with the power ranging from its minimum power of 15,000 BTU to the maximum 140,000 BTU. The built-in automatic air regulator is another feature that helps a gas burner to maximize its efficiency. This way water can be heated from its min. 100 F to a max. 160 F.

Remote control for convenience

The water heater is factory set on 120 F, and the best way to control the temperature of hot water is to buy a remote control. The remote control as the optional feature from Noritz, will not only allow you to set the temperature but set a flow meter alarm and use the error code display system for easy troubleshooting. If the remote is not used, flashing light on the unit will indicate if there is a problem. Another reason is the inconvenience of changing the hot water temperature ("jumper clips" have to be used).

Energy Star compliance

High performing burner is designed to use propane or natural gas, and either fuel source you use the heater will heat water with an efficiency of up to 84%, which makes them Energy Star compliant.

Turbo Flow system

Turbo flow system allows water flow of up to 6.6 gallons per minute when the heater is working with the 35 F temperature rise, and this is sufficient for one to two bathrooms, depending on the region where you live. The minimum water flow of 0.5 gpm gives you convenience where small water flow is required, such as hand washing or shaving. These small tankless water heaters are also recirculation compatible.
