ADVER TISEMENT Navien Has Proven Innovation Trajectory “American home owners prefer high-efficiency water heaters, but because these preferred products don’t always work with legacy piping, many people just stick with tank-type heaters in order to avoid the high costs of installing new gas pipes and vents, even though energy efficiency remains low,” said Moffroid. “The NPE series, with ½” gas piping and 2” PVC venting capability, is a game changer because it makes it far more economical than ever before for end users to replace their low-efficiency water heaters with something much better. We hope this will raise energy efficiency across the entire hot water heater sector and contribute to energy savings at a national level,” stated Moffroid.
