Why choose a Rinnai INFINITY A26?

We’ve all been there, it’s the middle of a frosty cold winter morning in Auckland, and you’re already dreading having to shower, the question lingers in your mind… “Surely they haven’t already used up all the hot water?” You take a step into the shower, looking forward to the warm water running down your back, but to your horror you realize and whisper to yourself aloud “yes… they have” leaving you with icy cold water running down your spine. We bet that many people don’t give much thought about how much hot water we actually need or use in our households, or how much of our water is actually being heated and when. According to the Energy Efficiency and Conversation Authority, heating water makes up for a staggering 30% of the average New Zealand household energy bill. Now that’s a huge portion of your bill! So, we believe it is important to inform yourselves about the different types of water heating systems we use in our households, and if the current system you have is really the most efficient and effective for your family. 

Types of Hot Water Heating in New Zealand

Before we talk about the costs associated with a Rinnai Gas Heater let us explain the different types of hot water heating systems available in New Zealand. The three main systems are:

  • Electric hot water cylinders 
  • Gas continuous flow hot water heaters (e.g.: Rinnai INFINITY)
  • Heat pump water heaters

The Rinnai INFINITY gas water heaters VT26 and A26 falls under “Gas Continuous Flow hot water heater” which means the amount of hot water is endless. Music to the ears of any mum with young kids in Auckland who all just want a hot shower. So, how does it work? 

Rinnai infinity specifications 

Rinnai INFINITY A26 and VT26 Gas Hot Water Heaters is a “califont”; which is basically a tank-less gas-powered heater that works on demand. The importance of a califont is that there’s no energy lost heating water just to have it sitting there waiting for it to be used, so no large bulky storage tank, your water is instantly heated. Gas hot water storage systems are also known to have a faster heat recovery time than an electric hot water cylinder; meaning even a large family with additional people in the home would not run out of hot water. However, what is even more important is that gas water heaters have a longer life-span which means you won’t have to worry about your system breaking down.  Lastly, there is no major risk of a burst cylinder flooding half your home. Now if you’re looking forward to never running out of hot water and freeing up your storage area, the Rinnai INFINITY matched with an accredited installer from Regency Plumbing may be the perfect system for you!

      Hi Rose. I assume you’re asking about a Rinnai Infinity. We are not installing units out of Auckland at this time.
      We do sometimes go out of Auckland and just charge extra travel, but at this time we are just too busy in Auckland.
      Thanks for asking.
