Rheem: hot water system supplier to charity project home
Monday, 30 June 2014 12:00 AM
Rheem hot water - it’s as iconic as Vegemite and Victor mowers. The company started trading in Australian in 1936 and three years later made their first water heater. They are now one of the leading names for quality hot water systems and because of this they can help their customers choose the right product for their hot water needs, not just for now, but for the future.
A hot water system has to be able to grow as your family does. Rheem systems are flexible and customers can define their preferred energy source: electricity, gas, solar with a gas boost or a solar with electric boost. When considering your options there are many issues to consider: how many people will need to be using hot water at the same time, what is your home’s hot water usage pattern and is there more of a demand for hot water in the morning or in the evening?
It is no surprise that a company with such a good reputation has partnered with G. J. Gardner because fittings for their homes have to fulfil three key requirements: be long lasting, hard wearing and good looking. This has seen Rheem hot water systems become part of a substantial charity project created jointly by Variety, a NSW South Coast land developer and G. J. Gardner Homes.
Last year Variety, known as ‘the children’s charity’, and Bruce McDonald, a land developer joined forces to organise a fundraiser for children who are sick, disadvantaged or have special needs. Variety’s fundraisers have one aim - to empower these children and make their life easier. It began with a block of land, generously donated by Bruce McDonald to Variety. Now Variety had a block of land, but how could they maximise its potential?
Enter G. J. Gardner Homes Shoalhaven, who put their hand up to be involved, offering to build a house and urge their extensive network of local suppliers and tradies to get on board. The result has been a new home for Variety to auction, enabling it to raise a substantial amount for its vital projects.
This year-long collaboration has now come to an end, its success based on the generosity of so many suppliers who have provided quality inclusions. And what would a home be without a great hot water system? Rheem became part of this great charity project, providing their trademark quality products to our special home. It’s a beautiful win-win!
