How is a continuous flow hot water service different to electric or gas hot water services?
Unlike conventional hot water services, Rinnai continuous flow hot water does not have a tank for water storage, so it does not require water to stay hot when it isn't being used.
When the hot water tap is turned on, cold water is fed through the bottom of the unit, and winds its way through metres of tightly coiled flat copper piping, which heats the water as it goes through. The water emerges out the other end hot.
This is why it is called continuous flow. You never run out of hot water.
There is the added benefit of having the option of a small heating control panel at a convenient location inside the house, where, with the push of a button you can determine what temperature you want the continuous flow of water to have. The panel is so easy to use and it's a vital safeguard for families with young children.
As opposed to big, traditional water tanks that can be installed internally or externally, Rinnai continuous flow hot water services are small and wall-mounted externally. Their compact size makes it possible to install them in the tightest of spaces.
A few important things to remember when choosing the right continuous flow hot water service.
The size you need is determined by flow rate, not storage capacity.
The flow rate is calculated in litres per minute. This rate depends more on the number of hot water outlets the heater has to provide water to, than on the number of people in the house.
As a general rule, for a two-bathroom house, you need a flow rate of about 22–24 L/min.
If you wanted to compare that and calculate the flow rate on family size, then for a family of 5 you would be looking at around 21 litres per minute flow rate.
