Lochinvar Introduces Wall-Mount Version of KNIGHT Heating Boiler
LEBANON, TN - July 24, 2007 - The Lochinvar KNIGHT, the industry's most advanced heating boiler, is now available in new wall-mounted models for space-saving installation versatility. With seven floor-standing models and five wall-mount units, Lochinvar offers the industry's broadest selection of fully modulating, condensing heating boilers.
Since its introduction in 2005, the KNIGHT has consistently delivered ease of installation and maintenance for contractors, as well as cost savings and quiet comfort for homeowners. The new compact, wall-mount models are designed to enhance installation flexibility, while still offering all of the features and benefits of the floor-standing KNIGHT.
Energy Star Efficiency
For traditional hydronic space heating or radiant floor heating applications, the wall-mount and floor-standing KNIGHT Heating Boilers offer tremendous savings on energy costs compared to the competition. In fact, KNIGHT has earned the ENERGY STAR qualification, signifying that it has met strict energy efficiency guidelines set by the Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy.
The fully modulating 5:1 turndown burner allows the KNIGHT to keep fuel use to an absolute minimum by adjusting heat output according to demand. With a 93 percent DOE AFUE efficiency rating on the 80 to 285 models and a 95 percent thermal efficiency rating on the 399 and 500 models, KNIGHT can literally cut heating costs in half. In low temperature radiant applications, KNIGHT efficiency reaches as high as 98 percent.
100-Foot Venting Flexibility
In addition, the sealed-combustion direct-vent design of the KNIGHT offers unmatched flexibility for placement within a building, permitting air intake and exhaust runs up to 100 equivalent feet using three-inch PVC or CPVC pipe. Wall-mounted KNIGHT models also permit intake and vent runs up to 40 feet using two-inch pipe. The intake and exhaust runs can terminate horizontally through a sidewall or vertically through the roof.
Same SMART SYSTEMTM Control
Like the floor-standing models, the wall-mount KNIGHT Heating Boilers offer the SMART SYSTEM operating control with a user-friendly interface. Standard control features include outdoor reset with sensor, three pump control, night setback and password security. Plus, optional software for a PC or Pocket PC offers expanded capability for recording, tracking and analyzing system data to fine-tune operation for maximum performance and troubleshooting.
