Make sure that in case of freezing weather that the water heater and its water lines are protected to prevent freezing. Damage due to freezing is not covered by the warranty.With electrical power and gas supplied, the water heater will not freeze when the outside air temperature is as cold as –22°F (-30°C) for indoor models or is as cold as –4°F (-20°C) for outdoor models, when protected from direct wind exposure. Because of the “wind-chill” effect, any wind or circulation of the air on the unit will reduce its ability to protect itself from freezing.In the event of a power failure and/or gas interruption at temperatures below freezing the water heater should be drained of all water to prevent freezing damage. In addition, drain the condensate trap and drain line.Loss of freeze protection may result in water damage from a burst heat exchanger or water lines. The unit may be drained manually. However, it is highly recommended to:drain down solenoid valves be purchased and installed that will automatically drain the unit if power is lost. These are available in a kit, 104000059. (The condensate trap is not affected by the auto drain down solenoid valves and will have to be manually drained.)a surge protector with terminals be purchased and installed which allows the solenoid valves to operate if the unit is disabled due to a diagnostic code. This is available as 104000057.In addition, the solenoid valves should be connected electrically to a surge protector with terminals. This allows the solenoid valves to operate if the water heater is disabled due to a diagnostic code. The freeze protection features will not prevent the external piping from freezing. It is recommended that hot and cold water pipes be insulated. Pipe cover enclosures may be packed with insulation for added freeze protection. --Tashay

Great product
Very happy with the purchase. Hot water does not take long to heat up and once it's on its on for good. Huge upgrade over our old water tank and will never go back to a tanked water heater.

Effortless
My install we handled by my home builder. The operation of the water heater seems above par given the size and the overall footprint. It's quiet, unobtrusive, and works great. If I could change anything about the unit it would be the hard stop on the setpoint. 120F is just right for me but the wife would love to have 130F+

It works great. It is very efficient and you never run out of hot water unless you loose power.

Excellent whole home water heater
This unit excels in heating our whole house with multiple showers or washing machines running. My only dislike is with the size of my house, it still takes a long time for the water to reach the furthest bathrooms (pump would be recommended in this case).
by MSmith6471
Great Decision
We had a new home built and was completed 7 months ago. and requested, after endless research, the builder install a Rinnai tankless. We are very happy with our decision. The unit is energy-efficient and doesn't take up much room. Hot water is always available and never runs out. No Issues, would definitely recommend.
