Rinnai ready as winter draws on
Hot water systems specialist Rinnai is gearing all its operations, products and services to meet the precision temperature needs of care homes as planning starts for the coming winter.
Hot water temperature precision and control are now being stated as major factors in the design, specification, and installation of hot water delivery systems.
Reports have emerged from the care home sector that the temperature of the hot water is critical to the cleaning and disinfecting process to render the possibility of transmitting viruses as near to zero as possible.
“We all need ready access to continuous supplies of safe, useable hot water and soap to ensure clean and sterile indoor environments throughout our daily lives to minimise any infection. This is paramount,” said Rinnai operations director Chris Goggin.
“We must closely consider the design of the provision of hot water services which incorporate heat engines to provide limitless volumes of hot water and provide that hot water at the precise temperature needed,” he added.
Rinnai has responded to the present conditions with a range of new products and initiatives which allow end-users virtually instant access to the supply of continuous flow hot water heating units and systems.
Provided there is a constant supply of gas and water, all Rinnai units are guaranteed to supply temperature accurate hot water in unlimited quantities for all hygiene regimes in all care homes.
New products & services from Rinnai have included remote monitoring Systems allowing site access for specification and maintenance needs, hot water energy audits for end-users, restart kits for those sectors emerging from lockdown, site costs comparisons including capital and operational expenditure reviews, lifecycle costing and carbon footprint analysis.
Rinnai has also developed handwash stations capable of 900 handwashes per LPG bottle, and procedures for restart of continuous flow systems, as well as providing legionella advice.
The company has meanwhile maintained its capability to provider emergency weekend opening and sales support, weekend operational & technical support, collection of new units/spares from its Runcorn HQ for Saturday and Sunday, and collection of new units/spares from Runcorn on Saturdays and Sundays.
Installers can contact the company direct in gaining access to the supply of units by calling 01928 531 870 or emailing [email protected]
