As Korea’s largest boiler company, exporting to more than 30 countries worldwide, KD Navien, has developed its industry leading reputation in the United States and Canada as a tankless water heater and combi-boiler company. With deep experience in the manufacturing of boilers and the largest single boiler manufacturing facility in the world, the company will expand its product line in the US and Canada in the fourth quarter when they begin selling the NHB (Navien Heating Boiler) series.

Ideal for residential and light commercial use, from the manufacturer that reinvented the way that people think about tankless water heating, the NHB builds on Navien’s recent successful product lines. The Navien Heating Boiler (NHB) will be offered in 4 sizes: NHB-55, NHB-80, NHB 110 and NHB-150 with turn-down-ratios respectively of 7:1, 10:1, 11:1, and 15:1. The noteworthy 15:1 TDR in the NHB-150 is achieved with Navien’s advanced burner system. One key component to that efficiency is the newly developed dual Venturi gas delivery system.

“Our New NHB heating boiler product will be much more than just another hi-efficiency condensing wall hung boiler added to the wide selection of boiler choices for contractors and homeowners” said Brian Fenske, Specialty Channel Sales Manager for Navien. “Yes we will have 95% AFUE, outdoor reset as required, and a few other similar operational features like the other brand choices available but then so much more!”

The NHB will offer industry leading options and features in the boiler operation parameters such as:

  • the largest industry turndown ratios providing ease of installation with multiple smaller zones while maintaining high operational efficiencies
  • a timed hydronic supply water boost feature
  • adjustable heat capacity
  • adjustable anti-cycle timer
  • freeze protection
  • adjustable Delta T ranges
  • pressure LWCO with manual reset
  • adjustable minimum burner time setting
  • adjustable turndown ratio timing and many more.

“There are almost too many features to list. This product offers the installer an opportunity to achieve a true high-efficiency installation” says Brian.

“It’s a little known fact that Korea is the 2nd largest market for boilers in the world behind only the United Kingdom”, said Eric Moffroid, VP Sales and Marketing for Navien. “In fact there are almost three times as many boilers sold in Korea as in all of North America. An engineering and technology driven company, Navien has invested heavily in R&D over the past 36 years, resulting in a host of technologically advanced products. We are very excited to soon be offering this advanced heating technology and expertise here in the United States and Canada.” www.navien.com
