Why Choose a Rinnai Tankless Water Heater?
Rinnai gives you lots of reasons to choose one for your home:
- Reliable performance. When properly installed by a trained professional, you can expect years of worry-free hot water with minimal maintenance.
- Easy to repair if needed. You’re not limited to replacing major systems: every part can be replaced on its own.
- Can create energy-efficient warmth. The gas valve and blower automatically adjust to water demands, saving energy when demand is low but providing all the hot water you need when everyone needs to use water at once.
- Some models are EnergyStar qualified. See the Ultra series below. The Luxury line is more efficient than an EnergyStar certified water tank.
- Cost saving. A variety of sizes are available so you can match the heater to your needs.
- Easy to install on standard gas lines. Rinnai water heaters can be installed on ½” or ¾” gas lines. There are also multiple venting options too.
- Low emissions for both NOx and CO2.
- Optional remote.

Rinnai Models We Carry
Rinnai tankless water heaters are available in three main lines, so you can choose the features you need and the price you can afford.
Ultra Series – RUR Models
This is Rinnai’s premier tankless water heater, and is useful for many home and commercial environments.
- EnergyStar qualified
- Up to 0.96 energy efficiency
- Five sizes accommodate many water usage needs: 130,000, 152,000, 160,000, 180,000 and 199,000 BTU
- Condensing tankless water heater. This technology makes use of waste heat that normally gets vented, and puts it back to work heating your water.
- Recirculating option means less waste of heat and water (you don’t need to run the tap to get the temperature you want). Does not require a dedicated return line: if this is too expensive, an easy bypass line can be easily installed in the unit itself.
- Two options on recirculating: Comfort or economy mode. The difference is the amount of time the pump runs before automatically shutting down.
- Preprogrammable heating schedule – just like you’d use for your furnace and air conditioner
- Easy to install – multiple venting options on each model
- Easy to maintain thanks to isolation valves within the unit (select models only)
- Can be installed on standard 1/2″ gas lines or 3/4″ gas lines.
- Wifi ready
- Warranty: Limited 12 years on heat exchanger, 5 years parts, 1 year labour. Some models have optional extended labour warranties.
For homes with smaller demands, the Luxury series offers most of Rinnai’s premium features plus a more attractive price tag.
- Energy efficiency of up to 0.82
- Choose from three sizes: 180,000, 192,000 or 199,000 BTU
- Recirculation pump
- Internal isolation valves make maintenance easier
- WiFi ready
- Limited 12-year warranty on heat exchanger, 5-year on parts, 1-year on labor (5-year optional on labor)
Rinnai’s most affordable option trims some of the premium features but doesn’t sacrifice reliability.
- Energy efficiency level of up to .82
- Three sizes for medium to smaller homes: 120,000, 150,000, and 180,000 BTU
- WiFi ready
- Limited 10-year warranty on heat exchanger, 5-year on parts, 1-year on labor
Tankless vs. Hot Water Tanks
Both tankless water heaters and hot water tanks offer advantages. Hot water tanks are relatively inexpensive to purchase upfront, have fewer maintenance needs, and a stronger flow rate. The water can also be used during emergencies, and gas-powered units will keep you in hot water even if there’s no power to your house.
You’ll want to consider a traditional hot water tank if:
- You need a new or replacement hot water heater installed right away
- Your home’s electrical capacity is insufficient for an electric-powered tankless heater (usually 200 amps or less)
- You don’t want the hassle and expense of adding a gas line for a gas-powered heater
- You aren’t planning on staying in your current home long-term
- You work at home (or spend most of your day there) and have hot water demands throughout the day
Tankless heaters, on the other hand, may be more costly upfront, but they offer several advantages over traditional heaters. You have on-demand, endless hot water, and the money saved over time on the field will help offset the higher initial costs. It’s also the energy-efficient option, and you may qualify for rebates because of this. Finally, tankless water heaters take up much less space, reduce the risk of flooding, and have a much longer lifespan of up to 20 years (about twice as long as hot water tanks).
Installing a tankless water heater makes sense if:
- You plan to stay in your home long-term
- You have a high demand for hot water in your house, perhaps with a large family or frequent houseguests
- The installation will be part of major home renovations
- You live in a small home or condo, where every available inch of space is precious

Do Tankless Water Heaters Save You Money?
While it’s true that tankless water heaters deliver energy-efficient warmth and an endless hot water supply, it might not always be the case that you’ll save money overall. It’s estimated that tankless water heaters use between 8% and 14% less energy than conventional water heaters. Electric tankless heaters avoid the standby heat losses associated with storage water heaters, but if your tankless heater is gas-powered, the pilot light will waste energy that might offset those energy loss savings.
To fully compare tankless and storage water heaters, you have to look at the initial purchase and installation costs. Tankless water heaters are more complicated to install than storage tanks, because you may require additional venting and gas supply lines. Electric tankless heaters may require an upgrade of the electrical systems if it’s currently below 200 amps. These costs can range from $200 to $700, and that’s on top of the cost of the unit itself.
However, if you’re planning on staying in your home for the long haul, select tankless water heaters can eventually pay for themselves with the savings. It might take 12-27 years, depending on the model and type, but the unit will also last twice as long as a storage heater, meaning you won’t have to worry about replacement costs 10 years down the road.

Is a Tankless Water Heater Right for You?
Tankless water heaters will pay for themselves in energy savings over time, but they do cost more to buy. If you plan to stay in your home for several years or if you’re not constantly using water all day, a tankless is a smart buy.
For those people who need to watch every penny, the lower purchase price of a tank may make more sense.
