Eco-Defender Ultra Low NOx Series- Literature
|Spec Sheet||Parts List||Brochure||Service Manual|
The Ventura County Air Pollution Control District (VCAPCD) is administering Rule 74.11, which regulates the allowable nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions of gas fired water heaters. This new requirement has established a NOx limit of 10 nanograms per joule of heat output (- 15 ppm) for any natural gas-fired Atmospheric Vent, Power Vent, Power Direct Vent or Direct Vent storage tank water heaters with inputs of 75,000 BTU/Hr or less.
Wholesalers and installers CANNOT continue to sell and install non-compliant water heaters after January 1st, 2010. Any non-compliant water heaters not already installed by this date cannot be sold or installed within the VCAPCD.
Bradford White Corporation has been able to meet this challenge by developing a series of advanced water heaters that emit 10 ng NOx/J or less. These water heaters are known as the Eco-Defender Ultra Low NOx series water heaters.
The District’s jurisdiction covers Ventura County.
