- 1 Navien NPE – 240 – Tankless Gas Water Heater Review
- 1.0.1 Navien NPE240S – NG Premium Condensing Tankless water heater
Navien tankless water heaters have been in the US market for quite some time; they are a trusted brand when it comes to providing value for money products for the client. They keep themselves updated with the latest technological trends to ensure optimal benefits for the recipients. The latest addition to their tankless collection is the Navien NPE – 240 – A Tankless Gas Water Heater.
The Navien NPE- 240 A has a minimum input of 19,990 Btu/h with its maximum topping off at 199K. The negative gas valve and fan with dual venture operation allows for better adaptability to low gas pressure applications. The operating gas pressures of 3.5 “ w.c. – 10.5 “ w.c. are required. One of the most special features of this product is the stainless heat exchangers that are an industry exclusive at the moment. The NPE model features a “comfort flow” built in recirculation system that monitors the use patterns and closely matches the hot water needs of a home or commercial building in an effort to eliminate ‘cold water sandwich’ that was a common problem with the older water heater models. A built in buffer tank and recirc pump are included.
The NPE-240-A model has ¾ water, recirculation and gas connections. The unit comes equipped with a standard 120V appliance cord and operates between 200 and 300 watts. The typical safety devices included with the product are a flame rod sensor, ignition operation detector, water temp high limit switch, power surge fuse and an exhaust temp high limit sensor.
One of the other beneficial features of this brand is that the overall size is large when compared to the other top brands available on the market. This is a really positive feature as the larger cabinet allows more room inside. Other tankless models are super cramped in nature but this one is a quite spacious.
Dozens of models may have come and went by but none of them had the built in features that the NPE possesses. It has the ability to operate under such low gas supply pressure, link up to 16 units in one group easily with a simple cable and control configuration. All in all, this is a perfect tankless model in a budget!

This product is amazing! I installed it in the middle of February this year and I must say you get what you pay for with the Navien 240 A. I just cannot imagine myself going back to a big 50 gallon water tank and running out of hot water on a daily basis. So glad I upgraded, great product, recommend to everyone!
I love the thing! It does a great job, it comes with a built-in recirc, pump and works just fine. Earlier I used to run to have to run water for almost two minutes before the hot water finally reached me, but not it is a matter of only a few seconds. Furthermore, the exhaust heat is so cool, you can vent with PVC, no more wasted heat going out.
