In this article, we'll explain:
- Why it's so popular
- The benefits
- The features
There are a lot of instant hot water systems on the market and you can really get bogged down when you're looking for the right one to buy. Hopefully this article will shed some light on the subject for you and make it easier choosing the right one.
Why Rinnai Infinity is so popular
Rinnai is a part of the innovative Rinnai Japan Corporation. They've been making gas hot water units since the 1920s. In the 1990s, they introduced their revolutionary electronic gas continuous hot flow water system. It was proudly announced as the hot water system that never runs out of hot water. They called it 'Infinity'.
This would have to be one of the most obvious reasons for why it became so popular.
Here are the 3 key reasons why people choose Rinnai:
- Hot water never runs out
- Trusted quality
Even within the Rinnai brand there are a lot of choices available for continuous flow hot water. Let's see the benefits and features of the Infinity series of continuous hot water systems.
Two key benefits
The first key benefit is the source. The Infinity series run on natural gas or propane gas depending on the unit. This is great news because gas is generally a less expensive source of energy. It's also regarded as having lower greenhouse and gas emissions so you're helping to reduce your carbon footprint at the same time.
There's still a lot of confusion though because if your electricity goes out, the system doesn't start. It's a gas system, yes, but it still needs electricity to turn on the pilot light and to operate a temperature remote controller if it has one.
The main takeaway is that when it's in continuous use, it's sourced by gas.
The second key benefit which applies to all Rinnai hot water heaters is the fact that it is not a storage tank. It's technology that heats cold water very rapidly as it flows through the heat exchanger and heads towards the outlet. This brilliant design is why the hot water never runs out.
Here's a summary of the main benefits:
- Runs on gas
- Not a storage tank, the water heats up as it goes through the heat exchanger
- Manufactured from materials with improved resistance to corrosion
- Anti-frost protection
- Excellent energy ratings
- Models for internal or external installation
