Rinnai's H3: Heat Pumps


Rinnai’s H3 range includes domestic and commercial heat pump options. Rinnai’s H3 is the organisations global mission to Create a Healthier Way of Living. 

Rinnai’s H3 range of decarbonising heating and hot water products feature heat pumps as an immediate low-carbon option for domestic and commercial utilities. Heat pumps offer swift implementation of decarbonisation whilst providing a high standard of heating and hot water delivery. For in-depth details on Rinnai’s heat pump range contact us today at:

A heat pump works by extracting heat from the outside air and elevating its temperature using a compressor. Compressed heat is then dispersed indoors through radiators and underfloor heating. Residual heat is stored in a hot water cylinder used for showers and baths. 

Both the compressor and pump mechanism accept electricity. If installed correctly on to an appropriate property a heat pump will prove to be an energy-efficient, effective tool of decarbonisation that delivers satisfying levels of comfort to the end-user. Heat pumps ensure that all home heating and hot water dispersal will be sustainable and entirely carbon neutral.

The H3 Options

Rinnai’s H3 range of heat pumps offer both commercial and domestic options that contain a variety of features: the HPIH range of commercial heat pumps suited towards schools, restaurants and small retail outlets can allow for up to 7 units to be cascaded together or operate alone as one unit. Once joined together Rinnai’s HPIH Monobloc Air Source Heat Pumps are capable of serving increased demand for heating and hot water.

The HPIH series includes a range of controls and system peripherals which ensure that all technical machinations can be monitored. Rinnai’s HPIH commercial heat pumps also deploy the refrigerant – R32, which contains a low GWP. The HPIH use maintains an ERP rating of A++ making this range of heat pumps an ideal economic and environmental option for future and refurbishment projects.

Rinnai’s HPHP series of domestic heat pumps arrive with the ability to save up to 25% of power input, enhancing efficiency and operational performance. The inclusion of DC inverter scroll compressors enable optimal performance throughout intense working conditions. State-of-the-art technology added in the injection process outperforms gas compression technology and ensures that even with outside temperatures of –25 Celsius, heating and hot water of up to 60 + Celsius can still be delivered.     

Domestic heat pumps can also be purchased that are designed to omit little to no sound during operating. Rinnai’s HPI SL range models perform with ultra-low sound capability ensuring compatibility with areas that hold strict sound compliance standards. All units operate in 3 different modes: heating, cooling and DHW. All 3 modes include specific system programmes that enhances product performance in all modes.

Hybrid Solutions for Now

Rinnai has also made hybrid heating and hot water solutions available for UK customers. A hybrid gas option brings together hydrogen blend-ready water heaters with heat pump technology creating an innovative first for commercial hot water options.

The combination of heat pump technology utilising R32 refrigerant combined with market-leading Hydrogen blend or Bio-LPG ready water heaters offers an economical, technical, and environmentally friendly solution to project needs. 

All commercial and domestic carbon reducing energy demands can be met by Rinnai’s H3 range, BioLPG, rDME, heat pump, hybrid heat pump or solar power products. Rinnai’s entire offering of commercial and domestic heat pumps are now available to purchase.
