Controls for Rinnai water heaters integrate with building-management systems
Rinnai has developed controls for its Infinity range of condensing gas-fired continuous-flow water heaters that are compatible with the popular forms of building-management systems used in buildings. The technology seamlessly integrates the company’s hot-water systems into BMS protocols to provide ultimate control and maximise energy efficiency in large buildings, including multi-tenanted sites.
Chris Goggin, operations manager at Rinnai, emphasises that intelligent controls that boost the performance of heating and hot-water system must not be looked on as a desirable option but as a fundamental component of any installation. He says, ‘Technically advanced Rinnai Infinity units equipped with smart controls definitely have their part to play as they cut emissions and are very frugal on gas consumption.
‘They are also very much part of the future as they work extremely well as boosters for renewable systems. I believe hybrid systems will become more and more common as we go forward.’
