Rinnai Enters Hybrid Market with New Tank-Tankless Water-Heating Solution

PEACHTREE CITY, Ga. (Oct. 3, 2013) — Rinnai America Corporation introduces its latest innovation—the Rinnai Hybrid Tank-Tankless Water Heater. The Rinnai Hybrid Water Heater combines the on-demand heating technology of a Rinnai Tankless Water Heater with an energy-efficient and durable 40-gallon storage tank. When coupled together, the technologies offer homeowners more than twice the water-heating capacity of a traditional 50-gallon tank.

By combining the two technologies Rinnai has created a high-capacity water heater that is quick and easy to install. The new Rinnai Hybrid Water Heater installs like a tank, requires a 1/2-inch gas line and is compatible with a 4-inch B-vent or common vent with furnace. The unit’s hot- and cold-water connections are the same as a traditional storage tank.

“We’ve married two technologies—tank and tankless—and developed an efficient and well designed water-heating solution backed by unmatched product quality homeowners and building professionals have come to expect from Rinnai,” said Joe Holliday, business development manager at Rinnai.

The Rinnai Hybrid Tank-Tankless Water Heater is an ideal solution for emergency replacement, or for customers looking to increase their hot-water supply without reconfiguring their current set up. Perfect also for light-commercial applications, the new 91,500 Btu Hybrid Water Heater produces more than 180 gallons of hot water in the first hour.
