Don’t Wait to Find the Perfect Tankless Water Heater

07/31/2019

Be the hero of your own story. Understand the basics of tankless water heaters from Rinnai to make the right decision for you and your home. 

Typically, your water heater isn’t something you think about replacing until your traditional water heater quits working or does not meet your hot water needs, or you’re in the dank recesses of your basement standing in ankle-deep water with a tank that has just let you down. In that moment or before it happens, you have the opportunity to upgrade your water heater to a more efficient, and longer-lasting approach to heating the water in your home—a Rinnai Tankless Water Heater.

Think about it: reduce the risk of your basement flooding, eliminate the wait for hot water, and quit the juggling act of hot water priorities—laundry, showers, dishes, oh my!

Now you’re faced with a question: “What tankless water heater best meets my needs? Let’s take a look at your options. In choosing a tankless water heater, there are a few discerning characteristics which reveal the model that best fits your needs. Here are a few questions to ask yourself:

  • How much hot water do I use every day?
  • How many fixtures will possibly use hot water at the same time?
    • For example: washing machine, dishwasher, shower, etc.
  • Do I run out of hot water often or schedule when I do the dishes or the laundry?
  • How can I heat my home’s water more efficiently and save on energy bills?
  • Is putting my tankless water heater in another location an option?

Our recirculation technology works in harmony with our tankless water heater and keeps hot water in your water line so regardless of which faucet or appliance you turn on, hot water is there almost instantly. With our WiFi ready tankless water heater and recirculation technology you can ask your Amazon Alexa or Google Home to “schedule or turn on your recirculation.” Your way to incorporate the latest technology in your smart home, is to add hot recirculation to your Samsung SmartThings routine. For additional peace-of-mind, some installers can even monitor your unit through the Rinnai app to help you keep your unit functioning perfectly.

Rinnai offers two types of tankless water heaters — condensing and non-condensing. Both tankless water heater types will provide continuous hot water when you need it. One main difference is their energy efficiency as explained below.

Our condensing tankless water heaters are designed and engineered to operate more efficiently by capturing energy from the exhaust gas by condensing and utilizing it to provide additional energy to heat your water. On the other hand, our non-condensing tankless water heater is engineered to directly vent the excess heat from the exhaust gas. Both tankless water heater types, however, will provide you with the continuous hot water you need and want without worrying about running out of hot water when using simultaneously in different applications. Depending upon your energy efficiency expectations, budget and preference, we offer multiple tankless water heater products that will meet your needs.

Another great benefit of having a tankless water heater is its compact size (similar to a small suitcase) that allows you to install it in almost any place. Unlike standard water heaters, our tankless water heaters can be located and installed outdoors or indoors, in an attic, a garage or basement. Your installing professional can give you options based on your home layout and needs. The possibilities of where to put it are more about what do you want to do with the space left behind from that big old tank water heater.
