Energy Savings & Performance
As we have already mentioned above, Takagi T-KJr2-IN-NG is a natural gas-fired unit. It consumes about 140.000 BTU gas pressure on average. With an energy factor between 0.81 to 0.83, we can confidently say that this unit is an energy saver. Through its computerized burner and electric ignition controller, it is only turned on whenever a faucet starts running; in other words, whenever there is a demand for hot water. At other times, the unit automatically switches to standby mode. Furthermore, it is pretty easy to use with the help of the TK-RE02 remote temperature controller included in the package.
Takagi T-KJr2-IN-NG is capable of producing hot water enough for a household with 4 to 5 members. Its 6.6 GPM of maximum flow rate allows you to run two showers and a faucet at once. This means that you can wash the dishes while your spouse is taking a bath and your son is showering.
One important feature of Takagi T-KJr2-IN-NG that we feel the need to mention is how much it values safety. Its safety features include internal freeze protection system, overheat cutoff, surge protection, and troubleshooting diagnostic codes. Now let’s have a closer look into these.
Takagi T-KJr2-IN-NG is equipped with an overheat cutoff fuse. This is a monitoring technology which is always checking the inlet and outlet water temperature as the water passes through the thermistor chamber. It ensures a system shut down in case the temperature of the water passing through is above the heating limit.
Secondly, in case there is a chance of pollution which may harm your unit, Takagi T-KJr2-IN-NG avoids this through its air-fuel ratio sensor. This sensor is constantly tracking pollutants to take an action before any damage is done. Finally, internal freeze and surge protection features come in handy if you are living in a colder climate or your water is considered as hard water, respectively.
Design and Installation
Takagi T-KJr2-IN-NG has overall dimensions of 6.7 x 13.8 x 20.3 inches and it weighs 38 pounds. It can be considered as a compact unit but one thing about Takagi T-KJr2-IN-NG is that it has to be installed indoors. It requires venting (4-inch, category III) but it also can be converted from a standard vent system to a direct vent system with the help of a TK-TV10 direct‐vent conversion kit. By default, the unit will use the air in the room it is installed.
To install Takagi T-KJr2-IN-NG, you must follow the local codes. Otherwise, your installation will be unauthorized by the government. Moreover, if you want your warranty to be valid, you must have your unit installed by a licensed professional and it is extremely important that the manufacturer’s directions are strictly followed during the installation process.
Takagi T-KJr2-IN-NG’s heat exchanger is covered by warranty for 10 years and its parts are covered for 5 years. However, these warranty periods apply for residential use only. If the unit is in commercial use, 10 years of warranty for the heat exchanger drops to 5 and likewise, 5 years for the parts drops to 3. However, as we have mentioned above, you must have your unit installed by a professional for its warranty to be effective.
