Bollente Companies Expands National Distribution

August 22, 2014

Bollente Companies has added several key strategic sales and distribution partners for its trutankless water heater, as demand for whole-home electric tankless solutions builds in anticipation of government regulatory changes set to impact the industry in April 2015.

Bollente has established national wholesale distribution with partners Hughes Supply, whose parent company Hajoca is the nation's largest privately held wholesale distributor of plumbing, heating and industrial supplies with more than 350 outlets; and WinWholesale, which operates in 240 locations and 91 showrooms.

To help meet demand, the company has brought in outside sales representatives in select markets, including Meridian Marketing Group in the Southwest; HOK Sales in the Midwest; and Upscale Sales in Florida.

Effective April 16, 2015, updates to the National Appliance Energy Conservation Act will require higher Energy Factor (EF) ratings on residential gas, electric, oil and tankless gas water heaters. These requirements will have an impact on installers, homebuilders and homeowners. To comply with the new EF requirements, tank heaters will need additional insulation, making them larger and increasing the likelihood of relocation within the home, at an added expense to the homeowner. Builders of new homes will also have to account for the additional space requirements and increased costs.
