Riello, a global leader in combustion technology since 1922, is offering its innovative high-efficiency wall-hung boilers to customers in North America for the first time.
The announcement was made at the recent AHR Expo in Chicago, following the appointment of Evergreen Products International as the distributor of five condensing models for the region.
Riello Group, a leader in products and services for heating, air conditioning and energy efficiency, is a part of UTC Climate, Controls & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corp.
Founded in Italy nearly 100 years ago, Riello is known for its industrial innovation and entrepreneurial spirit, with a reputation for quality, reliability and sustainability. Now, Riello is teaming up with Evergreen to bring these high-performing products to customers on this side of the Atlantic.
“We are confident this line-up represents our commitment to introduce into the residential heating market, both in Canada and USA, an innovative range of products,” said Umberto Ferretti, CEO of Riello Group. “Guided by the Riello Energy for Life value proposition, and working closely with Evergreen Products International, the new product range dedicated to North America will strengthen the Riello tradition of excellence, built on continuous innovation, collaboration, responsiveness, trust and confidence."
The Riello North America boiler brands feature 95 percent AFUE rating, 10:1 and 7:1 turndown ratios, as well as green product features including low nitrogen oxide emissions and no-lead standards certification. Versatile venting options and the proprietary Riello Active Combustion Control for precise set-up and continuous calibration are other distinct advantages. Other offerings include the Riello WiFi thermostat, plus the capability to access Riello boiler codes and parameters from anywhere, using a Riello APP on a smartphone or tablet.
The 95 percent AFUE Riello FAMILY PRO boiler is available in two models: heating-only, and combination heating and domestic hot water. Both FAMILY PRO models have a 7:1 modulation range, from 119,000 btu/hr input to 19,600 Btu/hr. In DHW production mode, the combi unit operates at 151,000 Btu/hr.
The 95 percent AFUE Riello RESIDENCE PRO is a smaller combination CH and DHW boiler that modulates from 85,000 to 17,000 Btu/hour.
The 10:1 commercial Riello CONDEXA PRO condensing heating-only boiler is available in two sizes – producing up to 75 kW (255,902 Btu/hour) and 117 kW (399,204 Btu/hour) respectively. These commercial units have a built-in circulating pump and cascade control; the boilers may be cascaded up to six units.
