A. O. Smith, an expert in water heating and treatment, announces the addition of X3® Scale Prevention Technology to its full line of residential condensing gas tankless water heaters. Designed with both consumers and contractors in mind, X3 Technology prevents scale buildup in a tankless unit, eliminating the need for routine descaling maintenance, tripling the expected lifetime of a unit and enabling it to run at like-new performance and efficiency.

“We continuously hear from technicians and homeowners that scale buildup is the number one issue with tankless water heaters. This buildup can shorten a unit’s lifespan, increase unnecessary repairs and maintenance costs, and decrease efficiency,” said Robert Aldrich, residential segment development leader at A. O. Smith. “After years of in-depth research and testing, we’re proud to be the first water technology company in the industry to offer its tankless water heaters with scale prevention technology.”

X3 Technology means you never have to descale a tankless water heater again – alleviating maintenance time for contractors and reducing ownership costs for homeowners. Units featuring X3 Technology work especially well in homes with hard water where damaging scale and mineral deposits are more common. The units use up to 199,000 BTU/hr of natural gas to deliver a continuous supply of hot water to residential applications.

Available on A. O. Smith’s suite of condensing gas tankless products (240, 340 and 540 indoor and outdoor, natural gas and propane models), units with X3 Technology offer customers an array of sizes to fit a variety of application needs. These products are also backed by the industry’s only limited warranty with no exclusions for scale-related failures.

Contractors interested in learning more can visit A. O. Smith University, https://university.hotwater.com/. Our online training portal currently offers tankless courses to ensure professionals are educated on the installation and maintenance of A. O. Smith tankless units.

To celebrate the launch of this industry-first technology, A. O. Smith presents “3X the Summer Heat with X3 Technology” promotion. Running May 1 through Aug. 31, 2022, Contractor Rewards members who purchase A. O. Smith tankless units featuring X3 Scale Prevention Technology will receive three times the Contractor Rewards points and will be entered into a sweepstakes to win a beach vacation of their choice in Miami or Cancun, Mexico; or a Bahamas cruise.

The Rinnai PRO Network improves benefits with addition of leasing option through Advantage Alliance™ 

As professional contractors seek opportunities to maximize their engagement with customers and strengthen relationships with reliable manufacturers, Rinnai America Corporation is ready to take on the challenge. The company recently announced a nationwide partnership with Advantage Alliance™ to enable residential heating, cooling and plumbing contractors to offer homeowners a cost-effective approach to maintaining home comfort. This will be part of Rinnai’s PRO Network, a member-only program offering contractors tools, training and support to help grow their business.

Rinnai’s Worry Free Hot Water program, powered by Advantage Alliance, gives homeowners the ability to install a tankless water heater or home heating products with no money down and low monthly payments through a leasing agreement that includes 100% maintenance and upgrades. The program allows contractors to offer customers an all-inclusive membership plan that includes new, high-efficiency equipment as well as routine maintenance and repairs.

 “Our partnership with Advantage Alliance™ expands upon benefits Rinnai PROs can offer to customers,” said Rinnai America Corporation President, Frank Windsor. “Our initiatives, programs and partnerships are designed to support the needs of professional contractors and we want to continue to provide innovative solutions and support. From our standpoint, this addition not only benefits our PROs, but it’s also a valuable offering for their customers.”

Rinnai’s PRO Network launched in early 2020 in an effort to engage professional contractors. Comprised of elite benefits for registered users including qualified leads, rewards, advertising and technology support, the introduction of this partnership will provide yet another avenue for business growth.

“Rinnai understands the importance of helping these hard-working contractors evolve and find greater efficiencies to increase profitability,” said Nicholas Blaylock, Director of Business Development at Advantage Alliance™. “The Advantage Alliance Program also brings many benefits to homeowners by making it even easier to manage and maintain their water heating systems.”

The Advantage Alliance Program provides contractors with the necessary infrastructure and support to implement the program while also providing flexibility to customize the program to meet their vision. It will be available to all Rinnai PRO Network registered users in 2022.  To learn more about Rinnai, visit www.rinnai.us.
