The Rinnai B16 is capable of producing 16 litres of hot water every minute, which is sufficient hot water pressure for a one bathroom home. Anyone in a small household that would like be confident that they will never run out of water again will find that this is the idea unit for them. As long as there is gas, electricity and water connected to the house, there will always be hot water available when the hot tap is switched on.
The Rinnai B16 has the benefit of being extremely energy efficient, with a high energy rating of 6 stars. This makes it an ideal hot water system for those that are on a budget and would like to see reductions of their energy costs. Because continuous flow systems only heat the water when it is needed rather than heating the water and storing it, you are only paying for the energy required. Households switching from gas or electric storage hot water systems will especially notice a difference on their energy bills. This system would also appeal to those who are conscious of their impact on the environment. Having a highly energy efficient hot water system results in substantially less greenhouse gas emissions.
