Hot Water Comes In From The Cold In Valley Install

Hillcroft Park

Rinnai’s continuous flow gas fired water heating units have been installed at the Hillcroft Park caravan park in the Ullswater Valley.

Hillcroft offers traditional camping, camping pods, luxury lodges and holiday homes - it's a busy place in the summer months and so owners, the Heath family, added five Rinnai 1200i continuous flow units in a cascade design so that any peak demand can be easily met.

The 1200i  delivers up to 35 litres of useable hot water per minute. The whole system is powered by LPG. All Rinnai units used in sites which are off grid are supplied to site LPG ready enabled.

 

Sequencing controls

The hot water delivery system at the site incorporates a secondary return utilising Rinnai pure controls and common flue headers on the units to streamline the flue configuration. Hillcroft Park works hard at sustainability and energy savings so electronic sequencing is employed on the system. These smart sequencing controls will optimise system performance by only firing additional units when more outlets are opened meaning the site only uses energy when it is needed.

 

Under pressure

The Rinnai HDC 1200i water heater unit uses heat exchanger technology to allow high capacity from mains pressure, thereby guaranteeing all the hot water needed, when it is needed on demand. As well as high capacities, the Rinnai unit has lower greenhouse emissions because of new reduced NOx burner technology.

 

Thermal efficiency

Available in both internal and external versions, HDC1200i gives end users 7% net efficiency* because the condensing process delivers up to 97% thermal efficiency, translating to significant energy savings when compared to standard tankless water heaters.

The HDC1200i is also renewables-ready (suitable for use as a temperature booster for solar thermal and heat-pump) and can be easily configured in a manifold arrangement. As long as electricity, water, and gas supplies are connected, hot water is available when the hot water taps are open. 

* Tested and certificated by Technigas to EN 26.
