Navien, Irvine, CA announced on May 8 that its NCB Series, condensing combi-boiler was awarded the Canadian Institute of Plumbing & Heating Innovation Award at the MEET trade show of Mechanical, Electrical, Electronic Technologies in Moncton, NB, Canada. MEET is the second largest event for industry in Canada and the largest trade event east of Montreal.

“This honor further recognizes Navien’s innovative leadership position in the home comfort mechanical systems market segment as it follows the 2013 AHR Expo Innovation Award for the NPE-A Condensing Tankless Water Heater series and the 2014 Hot 50 Product Award by Green Builder Media and the AHR Expo Innovation Honorable Mention Award for the NPE-S Tankless Water Heater series,” said Ann Woodard, marketing manager. The boiler won an honorable mention award at the AHR Expo.

“The NCB series is unique in that it is capable of providing a whole home heating system while also providing the domestic hot water output of a stand-alone tankless water heater”, said Eric Ashley, Marketing Product Supervisor for Navien. This follows Navien’s motto of “Making the world more comfortable every day”.

The NCB series features dual inputs of 120k BTU/h of heating, 199k BTU/h of DHW capacity and the ability to link with NPE series tankless water heaters for expanded DHW delivery, featuring many firsts in the industry.

Sources say the NCB series will be priced competitively compared to other combination boilers but unlike others, the NCB series can deliver an impressive volume of domestic hot water to satisfy the demands of a large home.

The NCB boiler is capable of providing up to 120k BTU/h heating capacity, and an impressive 199k BTU/h of DHW capacity. The contractor can now offer a complete package for whole home heating as well as endless hot water to satisfy the lifestyle of consumers today.
