Rinnai continuous flow hot water heating units have replaced a vastly oversized and an almost-redundant traditional style of system at the Coombe Hay Care Home in Scarborough.

Coombe Hay offers accommodation which is fully en-suite and suitable for male and female residents with some larger apartments available for two people. Incorporating all that anyone would want from their new home, and as a registered charity, all money is reinvested into the home to deliver excellent services and to keep fees and costs affordable.

Comgas Heating advised on the replacement system and chose 2 x Rinnai HD55i units - heavy duty high efficiency gas fired continuous flow water heating units with optimal fuel consumption. In like-for-like comparison to more traditional methods, the continuous flow system is proven to be more cost effective over a lifetime.

The Rinnai HD55i is an internal wall hung, gas fired, continuous flow water heater capable of producing hot water in excess of 820 litres per hour at a 50°C rise. The HD55i has a 125mm concentric flue which can be extended up to 15m, less 1m per 45° bend. As with the whole of the Rinnai range the HD55i is ErP A-rated.

The unit is compact, reliable and combines industry standards with innovation and quality. The HD55i operates between 1-10 bar pressure, which is suitable for mains cold water supply and systems with booster pumps and reaches water temperatures of up to 85°C, making the HD55i suitable for secondary return systems.
