HVAC Distributors Now Stocking Lochinvar Noble™ Combi Boiler

noble-2

Lochinvar’s new combi boiler, the Noble, improves the current combi experience – both for you, the contractor, and your customer, the homeowner.

First – the Noble offers cost savings. Instead of sizing up to get the stated BTUs for your system for domestic heating, you can simply select the model you need. Its stated BTU input is the domestic heating input. All sizes have a 10:1 turndown ratio and 95% AFUE.

Sizes available: 110,000 BTU/hr, 150,000 BTU/hr, and 199,999 BTU/hr.

Second – the Noble provides rapid, reliable hot water supply and efficient space heating. The Noble can provide heating and almost instantaneous hot water because of patented control technology for pre-heat and domestic hot water response. This is the only system that provides this level of convenience to homeowners for both domestic heat and hot water.

Third – simple set up and serviceability. The Noble boiler is equipped with Lochinvar’s SMART CONTROL™, and is set up by answering 10 simple questions. The user-friendly LCD display provides diagnostic information and system status in plain English, not codes.

Critical components, like the built-in circulator, are easily accessible making service and maintenance for quick and easy for contractors. You can remove components within two minutes for service and cleaning.

See the benefits of the Noble for yourself in the video below.

The Lochinvar Noble is available at our East Region locations, and can be ordered by phone or through Web Order Entry.

Federal Tax Credits on Qualifying Residential Indoor Comfort Systems

The Tax Relief, Unemployment Insurance Reauthorization, and Job Creation Act of 2010 has been extended and revised to provide federal tax credits on qualifying, high-efficiency residential HVAC products and systems through December 31, 2016.

Many Amana systems qualify for these rebates. Goodman has provided tax credit information and a tax certificate for each tax credit product type to the amana-hac web site.

From Goodman:

  • The maximum amount an eligible homeowner may receive in federal tax credits for purchasing and installing qualifying products, whether those purchases are in the form of upgraded insulation, windows, HVAC equipment or other eligible improvements, is now 10% of the cost of the improvement, including installation costs, up to $500 (there are per-item limits).

  • The $500 tax credit amount is reduced by the total amount of residential energy property credits a homeowner has claimed for purchases between 2006 and 2016. If a residential homeowner has already claimed single-family home tax credits of $500 or more from improvements made prior to 2016, he or she cannot claim any new tax credits during 2016.

  • All furnaces and boilers, whether fueled by natural gas, propane or fuel oil, must have an AFUE rating of 95% or higher to be eligible.

  • Products or units must be installed between January 1, 2009, and December 31, 2016, to be eligible for tax credits.

Installation in an existing home (principal residence only). Not available on new construction or rentals. Complete details of the programs are available here.
