Rinnai America breaks ground on new factory
Big news with a high quality manufacturer of products loved by many an X1Plumbing endorsed plumber, Rinnai.
“Rinnai, manufacturer of tankless gas water heaters, announced the ground breaking of its new factory in Griffin, Georgia. The building construction will begin in August with an expected opening date late in 2021.
Rinnai conducted a comprehensive search to determine where its domestic growth investments would take place and ultimately decided to remain in the state of Georgia. The decision included a training partnership with Georgia Quick Start and Southern Crescent Technical College.
The new 300,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility in Griffin, Georgia will manufacture the company’s residential and commercial water heating solutions, as well as future additions to the company’s product portfolio as it seeks to expand its product offerings in North America. “By establishing a world class manufacturing facility in Griffin, Rinnai will be well positioned to provide our customers with high quality products and services. The growing partnership with the Griffin community is key to Rinnai’s success now, and in the future,” said Derrick Black, VP of Operations, Rinnai America Corporation.”
Think of how often you use hot water in your home. Whether for showers and baths, laundry and dishes, or pets and hand washing, your family needs a hot water system it can count on, every day, for years to come.
- When the need for hot water arises by turning on a shower, washing machine, dishwasher or faucet, cold water flows into the Rinnai Tankless Water Heater from the inlet pipe at the bottom of the heater.
- The flame is ignited and heats the two heat exchangers that are included in the Super High Efficiency models.
- Water is preheated as it passes through a stainless steel heat exchanger, capturing any extra heat (or latent heat) before it escapes into the vent system.
- Water continues to be heated as it passes through the heat exchanger, and exits from the hot water outlet pipe to travel through the pipes of the home to the water fixture where hot water is needed.
- The tankless water heater will adjust flame output as needed to ensure the temperature set point is maintained.
- As the hot water fixture shuts off, cold water stops flowing into the tankless water heater and the flame extinguishes. The tankless water heater is now off until the next time hot water is needed!
