NHW-160AE premium features and benefits
Exclusive NaviTech™ stainless steel heat exchanger
The NWH-A series non-condensing tankless water heaters feature a stainless steel heat exchanger to deliver unmatched durability and performance.
ComfortFlow® built-in recirculation system
The patented ComfortFlow® system is the first to include a buffer tank, recirculation pump and fine-tuned controls into a tankless water heater.
NHW-A built-in control panel
Allows you to adjust water temperature, operation status and troubleshooting.
Built-in Air Pressure Sensor (APS) Monitors vent system for blockage, automatically compensates for range of vent lengths, helps maintain proper air/gas ratio during operation, and ensures consistent hot water output during changing conditions.
Patented NaviTech™ stainless steel gas burner
Designed and manufactured by Navien to burn gas at higher efficiency than other system on the market.
Recirculation control built into circuit board
Ensures proper system setup, and reduces the need for additional components, saving installation time and cost.
Built-in Water Adjustment Valve (WAV) & Mixing Valve
Control flow to maintain setpoint and stabilize water temperature during flow changes.
