Rinnai America Corp., a North American manufacturer of tankless gas water heaters, is launching a new product and showcasing a home automation center this week at the International Builders’ Show (IBS) in Las Vegas.

IBS runs Feb. 19-21 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Rinnai is showcasing its innovative thinking with the launch of the new I-Series Boiler. Rinnai will also feature a home automation center demonstrating how smart home devices integrate with its products. The popular interactive Virtual Reality (VR) product experience will also give show attendees a glimpse into the ease of installation of the Sensei Tankless Water Heater.

New Product Launch

The I-Series Boiler for the residential market has a unique advantage to homeowners — the ability for simultaneous usage of home heating and domestic hot-water production. That means if the heat is running and someone in the home wants to take a shower, the heat is not interrupted as it is with many traditional boilers in existing homes. The technology also includes an innovative bypass servo valve, which enables precise control of the hot-water temperature.

This boiler is available in both combi and heat-only models and comes standard with multizone heating control. 

“Rinnai is committed to enhancing lives by changing the way water is heated,” says Frank Windsor, president. “The new I-Series Boiler is further expanding Rinnai’s presence in the North American boiler market while meeting the needs of our customers.”

Home Automation Center

At IBS, Rinnai will also be using its home automation center to showcase how its tankless water heaters sync up directly with smart home devices such as Amazon’s Alexa, Google Home and the Samsung SmartThings Hub.

Rinnai is leading the tankless industry as the only manufacturer with home automation technologies that allow homeowners to control their tankless unit’s temperature as well as recirculation.

The Rinnai Virtual Reality Experience

The VR Experience returns to the Rinnai IBS booth this year. Making its debut in 2018, the three-minute-long simulation has attendees don the latest HTC Vive VR Headset and hand controllers to virtually tear out a rusty old tank water heater and replace it with a new Sensei Tankless model. Surrounded by a virtual workspace, the user is guided by voice instructions on the updated installation process.

The Rinnai booth will also feature a coffee bar and a large collection of Rinnai products and innovations.
