Frequently Asked Questions ("FAQ")

Q1: Can the NR-20DU be mounted outdoors?
A1: It cannot be mounted outside in a way that would expose it to moisture, direct sunlight, or freezing temperatures.

Q2: Every time the power goes out in my home, the setting that the NR-20DU had for the temperature is lost. Is there a battery inside the remote that can be changed, so that when the power goes out it holds the setting?
A2: The NR-20DU does have an internal battery, but it is not replaceable. Navien tech support confirms that when the battery is dead, and when house power is cut, the settings will be lost, as you experienced.

Q3: Is this a wireless remote control?
A3: No

Q4: Can the NR-20DU and HotButton both work when connected to the same unit?
A4: Yes, partially. When you install the HotButton, it will disable all timing mechanisms on the heater. So if you have scheduled recirculation times on the NR-20DU remote controller and heater, the heater will not recirculate. It will only recirculate when the HotButton is pushed to recirculate. Otherwise, the other functions of the NR-20DU will work.

Q5: On the NR-20DU remote controller, can I just press recirculation mode like the HotButton or can I only set a specified time?
A5: You can only set a schedule on the remote.
