Highly Efficient

Energy Star



The Elite Premier VWH puts everything you love about HTP’s focus on high efficiency in this versatile unit. It is compliant with the NOx emissions limit set forth in SCAQMD Rule 1146.2. resulting in an eco-friendly volume water heater. The combustion system has a specialized mixer with an internal shutter which seals off a portion of the mixer’s opening to increase the combustion system’s turndown ratio to 10 to 1. The greater turndown allows the Elite Premier VWH to match lower loads, which reduces short cycling, conserves energy and improves component reliability.

Multiple Options to Exceed Your Needs


The Elite Premier VWH is available in four different models ranging from 220,000 to 399,000 BTUs. It is suitable for almost any residential or commercial application in both natural gas and liquid propane.
