This news closely follows the announcement by Rinnai that, after an extensive testing and verification process, its N Series product range is hydrogen ready for the proposed initial supply of natural gas and hydrogen blends fed through the existing gas infrastructure.
Continuous and limitless flows of hot water are vital to any site and sustained interruptions can have serious consequences. The Rinnai appliance service plans aim to give end users peace of mind in knowing that, in the unlikely event of a problem, help is instantly and readily available to site.
The Rinnai service plans include:
Annual Service- to ensure that the hot water heating system is working at maximum efficiency. This will ensure lower costs and a longer working life from the Rinnai appliance.
A “Call Out Service”in the unlikely event of a breakdown where an engineer maybe required. One will get to site as soon as possible.
System Inspection- to review and offer advice to achieve full compliance to all current legislation.
Rinnai operations director Chris Goggin said: “We are offering our end user customers service plans for their peace of mind in knowing that, in the unlikely event of a problem, they have an instant answer and action.
