Rinnai America Corp., manufacturer of one of the top-selling brands of tankless gas water heaters in North America, has revived its Try Rinnai Tour, a U.S. and Canada road show that connects Rinnai team members with PROs for training and education opportunities. From May through October, Rinnai's sales team will share the latest technologies with trade professionals, educating them on the benefits of working with and installing Rinnai products to increase profit and grow their business.
"We understand the labor shortage in our country and the difficulty that many PROs have in leaving their market for training and learning about new technologies," said David Federico, senior marketing director, North America. "With the Try Rinnai Tour, we want to make their jobs easy, so we are taking our products and trainings straight to them."
The tour was created to help alleviate a PROs' busy schedule, by bringing training events via van straight to their neighborhoods. Throughout the tour's duration, it's estimated 500 local events could take place, allowing Rinnai to potentially interact with up to 20,000 installers. The seven branded vans will be found at distribution locations across the U.S. and Canada, where many PROs already pick up products and supplies. Additionally, the vans are leveraged at contractor locations and other local venues.
The sales team will focus their education and training opportunities on two new product launches for 2022: The RSC Condensing Tankless Water Heater and the RE Series, the first non-condensing water heater to include a built-in recirculation pump. The tour will also detail the new Smart-Circ Intelligent Recirculation technology, available in both products, which offers many consumer benefits and even an easier installation experience for the PRO.
Rinnai's brand promise of Creating a healthier way of living is at the forefront of all the company's efforts. By continuing to educate and train PROs on the latest tankless technologies, Rinnai is aiding in providing homes and commercial buildings with energy-efficient hot water options for cleaner and healthier living.
