Rinnai Tankless

    The Rinnai tankless water heater is one of the best brands of tankless systems out there. This is simply because the unit is reliable.

    The specifications and features on any of the Rinnai tankless product lines are on par with all other major tankless brands, they consume similar amounts of gas, produce very similar hot water quantities, and have nearly the exact same efficiency ratings.  Day in and day out the Rinnai tankless just works, it never breaks down and that’s what makes it stand out.

    Sizing a Rinnai

    What has made Rinnai stand out in terms of reliability?

    Well it used to be that as a consumer you simply couldn’t purchase a Rinnai tankless and have your local plumber install it. Rinnai used to heave strict sales rules and policies in place to prevent this.  To become a Rinnai tankless dealer all of the installers had to go through special training to ensure that each and every tankless is installed within all specifications.

    This isn’t enforced now and you can buy a Rinnai Tankless directly from us or somewhere else now.  I think it made sense in the beginning when tankless systems were just starting to emerge in Ontario and Canada.  Training installers on the unique installation requirements definitely ensured Rinnai had the highest reliability.  Tankless are common now and installers have learned a lot, allowing sales to the general public was the right move for Rinnai.

    Rinnai Price

    This is one of the most asked questions, “how much does a Rinnai cost?” Unfortunately its really impossible to give an accurate price as every home is unique as well as every install.  The unknowns are installation rates, venting pipe length, venting issues, mounting locations, gas piping, water piping, etc. Rinnai tankless systems as a bare unit start at around $849 and around $2500 with full installation, old tank removal, water and gas lines extensions etc.
