The latest technology
You can use the Navien Condensing NCB via the conventional programmable control panel or thermostat. But the options don’t stop there. You can upgrade to a smart energy system which can improve the energy efficiency of the boiler even further. This model is compatible with smart thermostat brands such as Nest and Tado. A smart thermostat allows you to control your heating from your mobile device or tablet.
The Navien Condensing NCB uses stainless steel heat exchangers which prevent corrosion and reduce the risk of problems arising during the boilers’ lifespan.
The model also includes a compensation sensor, so you can run in condensing mode as well as speedy DHW supply function, so you won’t be left waiting for water to heat up. There is also an ECO mode, so you maximise energy efficiency when you need to.
A built-in sensor inside the boiler automatically detects the ambient temperature and can start a safety heating cycle to prevent damage to internal equipment due to freezing temperatures.
A newer name from South Korea
The Navien brand is relatively new in the UK market. However, they have quickly built a name for themselves and are highly regarded for engineering prowess and reliability. Boilers and parts are well-stocked across the UK.
