Rinnai carries on caravanning

Rinnai, caravan park

Rinnai, hot water heating units and systems specialist has completed another installation at a caravan park and holiday multi-activity centre.

Rinnai HDC 1500e external unit, fuelled by LPG, was installed at a site in rural Herefordshire as part of regular upgrades on the complex. The hot water was for a very specific function - the Disabled, Laundry and Dog Wash rooms providing, and it needed to supply more than 940lt/hr at times of high demand. The unit has a maximum output of 54kW and weighs just 31kG

Due to space and configuration constraints the Rinnai 1500e unit was selected and installed on an external façade and accessorised with a pipe cover box to deter any vandalism and provide weather protection. As this is a pre-manufactured unit, no additional flue or ancillaries required, aside from standard pipe and electrical connections. The installation was completed in less than a day. LPG is increasingly popular for caravan sites and is one of the cleanest off grid energy sources and as such is the ideal fuel for water heating applications in rural areas that are off-grid.
