PEACHTREE CITY, Ga. (June 28, 2012) - Rinnai America Corporation, manufacturer of the No. 1-selling tankless water heater brand in North America, and Ryland Homes–Atlanta Division has formed a strategic partnership to bring local homebuilding into the 21st century. The new agreement states that all Ryland Homes–Atlanta Division homes with gas appliances specified, will come standard with a Rinnai® Luxury Series Tankless Water Heater.

“Tankless water heaters are an effective and efficient way of providing continuous hot water to meet all homeowner demands,” said Bill Carter, vice president of sales and marketing at Ryland Homes–Atlanta Division. “Our HouseWorks® Program is designed to preserve the environment, conserve energy and improve the comfort and lifestyle of our homeowners, and Rinnai Tankless Water Heaters help attain this goal.”

“With a tankless water heater, homeowners don’t have to choose whether a hot shower, running the dishwasher or doing laundry is more important,” said Aaron Baugh, residential business development manager at Rinnai. “All tasks can be done simultaneously, offering homeowners maximum flexibility and monthly savings on their energy bills. We’re proud to partner with a builder that is focused on both the environment and the lifestyle homeowners demand.”

Rinnai tankless water heaters operate only when the need for hot water is detected and shut down when the demand for hot water ceases, using up to 40 percent less energy than tank-style water heaters. The Luxury Series includes four models, with interior and exterior units offering up to 199,000-BTUs. Capable of delivering up to 9.4 gallons of hot water per minute, the 199,000-BTU level units can provide continuous hot water for up to five plumbing and appliance outlets simultaneously. In addition, these tankless units offer a longer lifespan than tank water heaters, as well as space savings and are ENERGY STAR® qualified.

“Ryland Homes is one of the nation’s leading homebuilders and we are excited about the opportunity to grow our relationships within the residential new construction market. Rinnai is committed to elevating the tankless water heater conversation within this segment and collaborating with building professionals to develop a strategy that ensures tankless water heaters are standard in new construction,” added Baugh.
