Rinnai announces new CPD course on zero storage benefits

Rinnai has announced its latest CPD (Continuing Professional Development) course: ‘Carbon and economic benefits of zero storage in hot water systems’.

The pioneering hot water heater manufacturer has created its new CPD to demonstrate the carbon and cost savings that can be achieved through investing in hydrogen blend ready and BioLPG ready continuous flow hot water heaters.

Recent media attention has been directed towards the issue of rising energy and living costs. Rinnai is working to produce reliable products that benefit the customer in terms of performance, finance, and convenience. Its instantaneous hot water systems have been rigorously analysed and found to offer significant savings in five key areas when compared to traditional storage systems, these being operational costs, capital costs, carbon footprint, space, and weight.

Rinnai has found that the savings achieved by replacing a traditional storage-based system with a commercial Rinnai continuous flow hot water system could amount to: 

  • 15-20 per cent of the running cost
  • 30 per cent of the upfront cost
  • 15-20 per cent in carbon footprint
  • 60 per cent in space
  • 80 per cent in weight

These savings can be measured in a formula divided into three steps that produce reliable and accountable results. The first step collects and processes data from previous real-life projects. This data is used to understand more about peak loading conditions and usage patterns. The second step sizes the system according to the loading.

The third step is used to calculate the CAPEX, OPEX, carbon emissions, efficiency, energy, performance, plant space, and weight.

Rinnai is a registered provider of CPD courses with both CPD UK and CIBSE. All courses are designed to facilitate a better technical understanding of low carbon heating, hot water delivery systems, with the stated aim of increasing knowledge, skill, and expertise, as well as providing an insight into the current energy market and how continuous flow technologies actively assist in customer cost and carbon reductions.

Rinnai’s commercial and domestic hot water products offer a limitless supply of instantaneous temperature-controlled hot water at temperatures over 60 degrees Celsius which performs as a disinfectant on all known bacteria. All new Rinnai units are designed to align with present and future energy sources and run on either natural gas or hydrogen gas blends. Rinnai units are also suited for off-grid customers who require LPG, BioLPG and rDME.

Rinnai units are UKCA certified, A-rated water efficiency, and can be delivered to any UK site within 24 hours. System design services are available and cost comparison services are accessible to all customers.

Rinnai is committed to decarbonisation. Rinnai offer comprehensive training courses and technical support in all aspects of the water heating industry. More information can be found at www.rinnai-uk.co.uk and its ‘Help Me Choose’ webpage.
