Feel the Zen with Rinnai’s new range
Rinnai is introducing the Zen and Zen Plus home hot water and heating system which marries established and proven manufacture durability with new technologies to offer great energy efficiencies, user control and, importantly, unparalleled level of comfort. Rinnai UK will be launching this innovation plus several other cutting-edge appliances during 2019.
The company is specifically aiming its new Zen range at a market sector which it feels has been previously overlooked: “The provision of luxury levels of hot water at affordable sums to the middle and top end of the marketplace.” The route to market for Zen will be through installers. Rinnai Zen & Zen Plus are available for use with both natural gas and LPG.
Reflecting its target marketing, Zen and Zen Plus features include an Internet-of-things (IoT) controller as standard and the Rinnai boiler App for android and IOS. The Rinnai app seamlessly connects to the controller in the property so the user can control the boiler remotely adjusting temperature, setting weekly and daily programmes, receiving alarm functions, monitor energy usage and set limits. The Wifi and boiler controller also uses GPS from the user’s mobile to bring on the heat when they are getting close to home.
Chris Goggin, head of Rinnai UK operations, says: “We are not launching into the mass UK boiler market – that is, in our view, a saturated and oversubscribed market which is in the throes of a major upheaval in its structure due to the advent of online direct sales platforms. We are offering something very different.”
