Finding the Perfect Tankless Water Heater

05/24/2019

...That Fits Your Family's Needs

Typically, your water heater isn’t something you think about replacing until you’re in the dank recesses of your basement standing in ankle-deep water. In that moment, you have an opportunity to choose a more efficient, longer-lasting approach to heating the water in your home – consider a Rinnai Tankless Water Heater.

Think about it – wouldn’t you like to reduce the risk of your basement flooding, eliminate waiting for hot water, and quit the act of juggling hot water priorities such as laundry, showers and dishes?

Now you’re faced with a question. Which tankless water heater best meets the needs of my family? In choosing a tankless water heater, there are a few important characteristics that will reveal which model is a fit for your home. Here are a few questions to ask yourself:

  • What is the size of my home?
  • How many fixtures will possibly use hot water at the same time?
  • How often do I use hot water throughout the day?
  • Do I want hot water faster?
  • Will it need to be an indoor installation or an outdoor installation?

As you consider your water heating needs and wants, look at the vast options and features of Rinnai Tankless Water Heaters:

High-Efficiency (HE) & High-Efficiency Plus (HE+) Non-Condensing units are compact and offer the reliability you’d expect from Rinnai with performance that’s ideal for small to medium-sized new homes or remodels. Wi-Fi-ready, these models can be controlled or monitored via smart devices. With the HE+ models, you can add optional recirculation technology to ensure faster hot water delivery to any point in your home. Without recirculation technology, you have endless hot water, but with this technology, hot water is available on demand. Plus, depending on where you live, if low NOx (nitrogen oxide) emissions are important to you or required by regulation, there is that option with some specific models.

Super High-Efficiency (SE) Condensing models have a sleek, modern design – and are about the size of a small suitcase. These units include a range of features and benefits that fully satisfy the hot water demands of larger homes as well as mobile homes. The BTU output of these units exceeds that of the HE and HE+ models to handle the demands.

The SENSEI™ SE+ RUR Series is the newest release from Rinnai and the most powerful in BTU output. As with any tankless water heater from Rinnai, it is compact and powerful enough to meet the needs of a busy home as it consistently delivers hot water around the home. Not only do these models include Wi-Fi monitoring and voice activation with Amazon Alexa and Google Home as well as integrate into your Samsung SmartThings routines.  Plus, you can reap the benefits of Rinnai’s smartest recirculation technology, ThermaCirc360™, which provides faster hot water at your faucet regardless of your plumbing configuration.

Hybrid Tank/Tankless Residential Water Heaters such as Rinnai's Demand Duo™ Hybrid Water Heating System are a smart choice when you need to replace your traditional tank. This unique “best of both” system lets you quickly and easily upgrade to a unit that offers a storage tank and continuous supply of hot water with tankless technology.

Rinnai is the only manufacturer to offer multiple venting options for the same unit, which means more installation options for you. Place your tankless water heater unit indoors or outdoors, the attic, garage or small crawl space; flexible installation options allow you to go where a traditional tank cannot.
