Main Features Explained
Ecological and safe
Atmospheric open chamber gas water heaters represent a high risk for homes. This is because their burner is in contact with the environment where they are installed. In order to avoid potentially dangerous accidents, as of September 26, 2018, the ERP regulations came into force, which regulates the mandatory use of sealed heaters with low NOx emissions.

In this sense, with this model you will be able to obtain domestic hot water with a minimum of damage to the environment.
