Looking to smooth and simplify the water heater-selection process for both homeowners and contractors, Noritz America has unveiled a tankless water heater sizing calculator as part of its newly updated website at www.noritz.com.
The "Find the Right Model for Me" calculator is intended as the first critical phase in a three-step, online process designed to identify:
1) the correct Noritz tankless model for a given application;
2) a qualified, Noritz-trained contractor to quote and install the unit; and
3) all available tax credits and utility rebates to lower the installed cost and shorten the payback period.
"The calculator simply provides a baseline that the installer can fine-tune as needed," says Fleming, who stresses that only a Noritz-trained, professional contractor can make the final product recommendation and accurately quote the installed cost.
"Our aim is to maximize the Noritz buying experience for the home-owning consumer," he continues. "The best way to begin that experience is by letting her know which tankless model most likely represents the best solution for her home, so she can then start the conversation with the plumber."
