We proudly recommend and offer Rinnai tankless water heaters. Not only are they the #1 selling tankless water brand in the world, but they are also the first major tankless brand to be manufactured in the USA.
Choosing the right tankless water heater for your home can be challenging. So we’ve assembled a list of features that our clients ask most frequently about so you can make the right decision for your particular situation.
GPM rating means the amount of water that flows through the tankless water heater. BTU is the measurement of how quickly the water heater can increase the water temperature. In Minnesota, the average water temperature is 42 degrees. To bring this water to the temperature and flow rate you desire, you'll need high measurements of both BTU and GPM. Most people in Minnesota find they need a tankless water heater with up to 200,000 BTU at 5 GPM meets their needs.
Circulation technology vastly improves the time hot water heater is delivered to your faucet. Without circulation, you might be waiting a minute or two waiting for the hot water to come through the tap. Circulation ready models utilize a return pipe to flow hot water through, making the hot water ready faster. Not all homes are fitted with a return pipe, however, and they can be costly to install.
Rinnai’s ThermaCirc360™ feature (only available on select models) doesn’t need a return pipe. It uses a separate easy to install valve at the faucet furthest from the water heater and uses the cold water line as the return line.
And Rinnai’s tankless water heaters can be outfitted with additional accessories to customize the recirculation. You can use a motion sensor to automatically begin recirculating water in a specific area when you walk by, or you can schedule the recirculation times with their control unit.
Rinnai tankless water heaters all come wifi ready. Why wifi for your water heater? So you can control the temperature of your water, and the recirculation schedule (if your model is fitted with it) all from your phone or computer. Additionally, the wifi system automatically diagnoses your water heater, and notifies you the moment it finds an issue.
Tankless water heaters cost more than tank-style, but, on average they last more than twice as long. Rinnai tankless water heaters can last longer than 25 years with regular maintenance and good water quality. With their increased efficiency and longer life span, they end up costing much less than a tank-style water heater.
On top of that, Rinnai is the #1 tankless water heater brand sold in the world.
Rinnai carries all kinds of accessories to customize your water heater experience. Motion sensors and control units to customize your recirculation, battery packs to ensure you’ll have hot water for days even when the power goes out, and scale cutting systems to make sure your investment is protected against scale build-up.
Rinnai tankless water heaters provide condensing and non-condensing units. Condensing units have the highest efficiency ratings on the market.
The high flow rates and BTU’s, the extreme customization, and high quality are just a few of the reasons why Rinnai is our first choice in tankless water heaters.
