Anyone who has read any of my blogs will understand I have a love affair going with tankless water heaters in general and Rinnai units in particular.
On the surface it is simple; unlimited hot water.
You simply will never run out of hot water. NEVER!
It’s like describing a favorite color. Sounds simple but can be more than a challenge.
I like checking in with both Australia and New Zealand’s Rinnai sites as I find they experiment with products there prior to being sent to America. I actually wish I could get my hands on some of their products for myself. Pretty neat stuff.
You may be amused at the way the commercials deal with the unique selling points of Rinnai. Not to be missed is the issue of quality.
Increasingly I am seeing Chinese products flooding our markets. I am more than a little concerned about the quality of these units. Of course there is little opportunity to discover this fact without doing a lot of homework. The products are sold on price ONLY. Just check the feedback scores.
Also, they offer little or no hand holding after the sale.
Rinnai has been extremely concerned about their product’s image since day one. Installers must attend
classes to learn the nuts and bolts of the technology. I have found NO issues when properly installed.
When someone does it ‘on the cheap’ it often ends very badly.
