Rinnai hot water heating units found to be hydrogen-ready
Rinnai’s N series of hot water heating units have been confirmed as hydrogen-ready after an extensive testing and verification process.
The verification means all commercial units are ready now for hydrogen fed through the gas pipeline infrastructure.
In addition, N series units installed since 2019 are compatible with future hydrogen blending for the advent of decarbonisation of gas heating.
”This is a major announcement for our customers’ installations whether current or planned - it simply means that you are future-proofed,” said Rinnai UK operations director Chris Goggin.
There are four models in the N series of hot water heating units: the N1600i giving 954 litres per hour; the N1600e (external) also giving 954 litres per hour (at 50 degrees); the N1300i giving 775 litres per hour and the N1300e also giving 775 litres per hours of temperature- controlled water at 50 degrees.
The two 1600s have load profiles of XXL and are water efficiency class A rated, while the 1300s are load profile XL and are also water efficiency class A rated.
Rinnai has recently committed to creating a comprehensive information hub dedicated to the subject of hydrogen as a low-carbon energy for the future.
The Rinnai hydrogen information Hub will be aimed at building services consultants, engineers, specifiers and end-users. It will be online and include webinars plus all requested digital or onsite meetings.
The distribution of hydrogen creates a resolution to the Energy Trilemma questions and the very necessary decarbonisation of the UK energy grid.
Hydrogen can be potentially combusted through existing ‘in situ’ appliances, complete with smart controls and cost-effective hardware & software upgrades as demonstrated by proprietary technology in hot water heating units.
“Decarbonisation is the goal for all of us, but it won’t be achieved by a single product type or energy vector,” said Goggin.
“There will be the requirement for different energy sources whether that be hydrogen, electric or district heat, all will be required to achieve widespread decarbonisation,” he added.
