[Launch Event] Ariston Water Heater - Andris Series

Attended the first ever media launch organised by Ariston Thermo (Ariston) on 26th Sep 2014 and it was truly an eye-opener over how superior a water heater have become.

Ariston, a global company is the industry’s leading purveyor of heating and water heating solutions, with over 7.2 million products sold in over 150 countries, achieving €1.33 billion in revenue.

Their Singapore team, young and energetic, are capable of overseeing the full gamut of marketing, distribution, after-sales service, and providing quality customer service.

The launch was held at this 62-storey high - Tower Club,

with photo booth,

and refreshments,

Over at the launch, we were introduced to Ariston's latest range - the Andris series, the first-ever top-Italian-designed water heater! High quality yet pretty much pocket friendly.

Agree to most people, i regard safety, energy efficiency and design as the most important factors when choosing a water heater for my home.

Designed by top Italian designer - Umberto Palermo. curved edges evoke a sense of familial trust. More than just a water-heating product, the Andris series are termed as “water furniture”, and are accessories that can complement modern, beautifully designed toilets.

On top of looking aesthetically superior, Ariston prides itself on the Total Safety System (TSS) – guaranteed by Ariston products all over the world. Ariston's water heaters has been certified by IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission) and SS (Singapore Standards). The TTS comprises three salient features:

1. Thermostat: The water heaters’ thermostats are a first-level safety feature, and stops the heating when the desired temperature is reached

2. Thermal cut-out: This is a second-level safety feature. In case of over-heating, there is a protection sensor to incorporate a thermal cut-out to disconnect poles to the appliance

3. Pressure relief valve: The pressure relief valves of Ariston’s water heaters are regulated to reduce the pressure being built up in the tank. Water pressure is then reduced and this greatly prevents any unexpected failures of the water heater.

Energy efficiency is identified as Ariston’s long-term strategy for sustainability and growth . In 2013, 40% of its business comes from high-efficiency and renewable solutions, and the goal is to reach 80% by 2020. Ariston has pledged a commitment to launch products that use energy from renewable sources, avoid waste and reduce CO2 emissions, and developing innovative high-efficiency solutions ensuring high performance and maximum comfort while minimizing consumption. The Andris series is Ariston’s range of water heaters designed to be already compliant with future energy efficiency regulations.

The water heaters under the Andris series come with Titanium enamel tank protection, a feature exclusive to Ariston. Titanium further enhances the durability of the inner tank and helps users to save energy. Another notable feature is the durable copper heating element: copper is a recyclable material that promises better durability than stainless steel, and has also more hygienic water output with its antimicrobial effect.

A star of the Andris Series – the flagship AN LUX model will be a game-changing product. It boasts the revolutionary AG+ technology, the first-of-its-kind in a water heater in Singapore. Active AG+ ions are released into the water tank. These nanoparticles halt the proliferation of common bacteria such as E. coli, salmonella, legionella, mould fungi and more. In turn, users are assured of its anti-bacterial properties and enjoy clean water as they shower.

Equipped with a titanium, double wall sentinel heating element imported from Italy, this class is above the rest – the insulation goes beyond ensuring extra safety and durability for the users, at the same time enhancing energy saving properties.

As Ariston continues to further its understanding of consumers’ needs and design solutions to meet them, Leonardo Senni, Chief Executive Officer, Ariston Thermo, shares the same thought: 
"We are very excited to have our very own team in Singapore after 20 years of commercial presence. Launching the Andris series is the first step towards bringing greater quality products to Singaporeans; we will continue to strive to ensure our products are innovative, customer service is excellent, while further investing in our brands to entrench our commitment here in Singapore."

Ariston Andris Series is now available at all leading sanitary dealers and electronics superstores island-wide! (Products come with a 5-year warranty (inner tank))

So proud of my dad getting the right choice back in year 2007, in providing his family guaranteed utmost comfort and safety! I took this picture of the Ariston water heater in my house to show you how good they really is. 7 years passed yet it still look as new as before! =)
