IRVINE, Calif., Oct. 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The process of installing tankless water heaters is no longer difficult or time consuming. The new Navien NPE Series premium gas condensing tankless water heater features advanced technology that revolutionizes installation and helps increase profitability for contractors.

All these technical advances make the Navien NPE tankless series ideal for tank water heater replacement.
