Rinnai king of the castle

Rinnai, Peckforton Castle, HDC1500i

Rinnai has completed an installation at Peckforton Castle in Cheshire, replacing the old direct fired stored hot water system. Two HDC 1500i units were linked to solar panels as the main hot water heating source by contractor A P Mitchell.

Peckforton Castle is a Victorian country house built in the style of a medieval castle and is a Grade I listed building. The house changed ownership many times before it was purchased in 2006 and repurposed as the popular luxury hotel and spa it is today.

Adam Mitchell of A P Mitchell says: “The brief from the client was to create a more efficient system, and at the same time reduce stored water volume to save in gas fuel consumption. But the new system had to still meet peak demand in the hotel, spa and event facilities.”

Rinnai’s HDC1500i, is an awardwinning range of continuous flowwater heating units that met this brief. The Rinnai is highly energy efficient, and will only raise the temperature of the water by the precise amount needed if required. This ensures that any solar gains are maximised and ‘boosted’ by a secondary heat source thus guaranteeing the optimisation of the renewable solar element of the system.
