June 7, 2012: Rinnai Partners with RESNET to Improve Home Energy Performance

June 7, 2012
PEACHTREE CITY, Ga. — Rinnai America Corp. and the Residential Energy Services Network™ (RESNET) have announced they are partnering to promote improved home-energy performance in the United States. As part of the agreement, Rinnai will help educate HVAC and building professionals on the RESNET Home Energy Rating System (HERS) Index, a standard for measuring a home’s energy efficiency.

“Our partnership with Rinnai will help building and remodeling professionals better understand how tankless water heaters can contribute to a home’s overall health,” said Steve Baden, executive director for RESNET. “Additionally, it will allow these professionals to accurately account for potential home-energy savings, helping to further differentiate themselves in the marketplace.”

Rinnai also will serve on the Mechanical Industry Advisory Council of the RESNET Technical Committee. This council provides reviews of RESNET standards addressing the HVAC and water heating industry.

“As additional leading builders become engaged in sustainable building practices, the HERS rating will become more of a ‘miles per gallon’ standard for homebuilding efficiency,” said Aaron Baugh, residential business development manager at Rinnai. “We are proud to partner with RESNET and assist builders in expanding their energy-efficient efforts and the advancement of building science.”
