Bollente Companies, Inc. (otcqb:BOLC) today announced that its trutankless® line of smart electric tankless water heaters is the exclusive water heating solution for luxury communities built by the award- winning Arizona home builder Cullum Homes.
Cullum Homes, known for its high level of craftsmanship and energy-efficient building methods, is the exclusive builder for The Village at Mountain Shadows in Paradise Valley and The Village at Silverleaf in North Scottsdale. Both communities offer luxury amenities like guard-gated entries, smart home technology, resort settings and the finest in architectural design and craftsmanship. With numerous awards and accolades for its patented design, smart home compatibility and energy efficiency, trutankless was selected to be the standard water heater for every home in both communities.
“trutankless is the only whole-home water heating solution I recommend,” said Rod Cullum, owner and founder of Cullum Homes. “I have used trutankless for years in my own home, where my family and I enjoy reliable, endless hot water. It only makes sense that I would offer the same quality and energy-efficient technology in the homes I build.”
“Offering trutankless makes sense from a home building standpoint because represents the perfect fusion of reliability, performance, technology and cost savings, especially when compared to a gas tank or gas tankless water heater,” said Eddie Strong, director of architecture for Cullum Homes. “With trutankless, we no longer have to worry about venting or other costly considerations. A single wall mounted system supplies all the hot water for a 7,000 square foot house and trutankless offers our team maximum flexibility to provide instantaneous hot water at every outlet. It’s a convenience and design aesthetic our luxury home buyers appreciate.”
“The team at Cullum Homes is always pushing the envelope to offer the best and latest technologies to a discerning clientele which makes trutankless a natural fit,” Michael Stebbins of Bollente Companies said. “This announcement is validation that clean, efficient electric tankless water heaters for the whole home are finding favor over other options, and more importantly, that trutankless is being recognized as the stand-out product in its class according to industry leaders.”
The unit’s smart water heating innovations include WiFi capabilities, compatibility with 5G wireless technology, a user- friendly touchscreen, and refined thermal efficiencies. A convenient app (iOS + Android) allows for remote settings, notifications and monitoring to ensure safe operation from anywhere in the world. Because the new unit operates at both 50Hz and 60Hz frequencies, it will run in most international households. It also meets European Union RoHS compliance standards and is FCC certified.
Last year, the company was granted 32 patent claims protecting its technology (U.S. Pat. No. 9,341,391). Several new claims are currently pending. The patents represent key advancements that are driving demand for trutankless among builders and remodelers around the world.
