Noritz Unveils Breakthrough
Replacement Technology with the EZTR40 Residential Water
Heater, a 40-Gal. Replacement.
Noritz is the first tankless manufacturer to offer a
condensing residential unit
with top-mounted connections and flexible venting through
making the replacement of 40-gallon, tank water heaters
more affordable than ever.
America is revolutionizing the water heater industry, taking
tankless-for-tank replacement installation to a new level of
ease and affordability, with the new EZTR40 condensing tankless
water heater for residential applications. Noritz will be
showcasing the unit to contractors with the EZTR40 Roadshow,
visiting over 250 locations in the South and West from October 1
to November 20.
Designed to replace a conventional 40-gallon tank-type water
heater for two-bath residences in warm-weather climates, the new
EZTR40 streamlines the tank-replacement process with three key
•The EZTR40 vents with two-inch, flexible polypropylene tubing
that is threaded directly through the existing B-Vent formerly
used by the tank water heater it is replacing. As a result,
there is no need to spend time changing out the vent.
•In addition, water connections are located on the top of the
EZTR40, not the bottom. This allows the flexible
hot-and-cold-water lines used by the tank-type water heater to
be quickly and easily reconnected to the new EZTR40. Not only
does this save time traditionally spent creating new plumbing
around the tankless unit, but it also gives the final
application a cleaner look.
•The EZTR40 uses the same half-inch gas line used by the old
tank unit, which eliminates the need to up-size to 3/4-inch run
in replacement situations. This cuts labor time by up to half,
while avoiding the material cost for new gas piping, resulting
in a substantially reduced installed cost to the homeowner.
“Noritz is the first and only tankless water heater manufacturer
to offer all these features that make the tank-replacement job
more intuitive and straightforward — and therefore quicker and
less costly,” says Noritz Marketing Manager Jason Fleming. “With
the EZRT40, plumbing installers and their customers get the
benefits of time savings and installation ease with all the
energy- and space-saving advantages of tankless.”
installation even easier:
•The EZTR40 includes a step-by-step manual that gives simple,
visual instructions on how to install the unit.
•To further streamline the installation process, the packaging
includes a QR code linked to a five-minute instructional video
that can be easily accessed with a smart phone, tablet or laptop
on the jobsite.
•The EZTR40 is packaged with all the accessories needed for a
Measuring 18.3 inches wide x 27.2 inches high x 9.4 inches deep,
the unit weighs only 50 pounds, so that a single tradesperson
can handle the installation.
Other important features include:
•TEMPERATURE SETTINGS: 115°F to 140°F.
•BTU INPUT RANGE: 15,000-120,000 BTU per hour, with a maximum
flow rate of 6.6 gallons per minute at a 35°F rise in water
•BUILT-IN DIGITAL DISPLAY: In addition to controlling
operations, the integral digital display permits basic servicing
without the need for a remote device. Located on the lower right
of the front panel, this readout assists troubleshooting by
indicating flow rates, water temperature and common error codes.
•12-YEAR WARRANTY: The EZTR40 protects the environment by
heating water strictly on demand, while offering a longer
product life cycle than storage tank-type models. The warranty
for each unit is 12 years on the two heat exchangers, made of
long-lasting, high-grade stainless steel; five years on parts;
one year on labor.
