Ultra High Efficiency

Pioneer Gas Fired Heater

Up to 95% Thermal Efficiency

High system efficiency even during low load conditions, the modulating burner operates at a 5 to 1 turndown ratio, matching fuel consumption to demand

Turndown Ratio

Turndown Ratio 5 to 1 – Modulating technology matches fuel consumption to demand to provide high system efficiency even during low load conditions

Greater turndown allows the Pioneer Gas Fired Water Heater to match lower loads, which reduces short cycling, conserves energy and improves component reliability

Installation & Venting

Pioneer Heater Installation & Venting Illustration
Excellent Venting Options:
uses inexpensive, easy to install PVC pipe and is approved for multiple venting configurations, including the use of room intake air

Vents up to a total of 200 feet

Ample thermal mass eliminate the need for primary/secondary piping that is usually required for high efficiency systems, it makes for simple installation saving on both cost and time

Retrofit

Direct replacement for low to mid efficiency cast iron boilers

Unlike other modulating condensing appliances, the Pioneer features a built in buffer tank, eliminating the need for primary/secondary piping design, due to thermal mass

Quality Design

Pioneer Heater Quality Design Image
The hybrid 90/10 cupronickel/stainless steel heat exchanger boasts excellent heat transfer properties, while durable stainless steel tank resists corrosion

Low maintenance heat exchanger design:
The “down fire” design of the heat exchanger takes advantage of gravity to remove condensate, while the cupronickel heat exchanger rapidly expands and contracts with changes in temperature, eliminating scale build-up

The Pioneer’s entire combustion and control system can be accessed by removing a light, molded cover
