Q:Why does the warranty get cut nearly in half for commercial use vs residential use?
by|Feb 7, 2024
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Hi Kyle, the warranty is shortened because of the average usage for a commercial unit. Most locations require a high demand continually for long periods of time. Causing much more wear and tear on the unit.

        Excellent!!
        I did a lot of research and ended up settling on the Rinnai over the Rheem. Be prepared to spend another $400 or so on venting, water/gas pipes and valves. I was able to install myself in a day with all the electrical and plumbing work. Instructions are sufficient but I would recommend doing the Rinnai online training that they provide technicians.

          Well, we just got this install. It's been just a couple of weeks now. It takes about a 45 sec to a 1 min to get hot water, in less its been running for something else. But when it's been running you get hot water as long as it's on. Note you will get a pocket of cold water in between the hot, if it shuts off and then turns back on maybe a min or two later. But not if its been running. Like the fact you are not keeping a tank of hot water all day long hot. This is not the setup to have continuously hot water. We opp out of that feature, but can in stall later if we want. It does make some noise when running, and it does when just running cold water through it too. Its not real loud but you can hear it up stairs just above it. We are running propane gas to it, notice with in the two weeks our propane tank went from 92% to 87%. There are only two of us in the house. Our house is three bedroom, two bath and three stinks. When we turn all the water on the tankless didn't fail the test. We had hot water to all. But wasn't super hot. With the shower and dish washer going we had hot water, same with stink running and shower. And same with washer going too. No fluctuation. We live in the mountains and are at 8300 feet. It was setup for that altitude. We had an electric hot water tank that failed. So went this way. We're hoping the cost of heating the electric tank will be the same or less for tankless. It looks that way as of now...maybe less.

          Installed by RH Foster on 31 JAN 2024. Too early to rate it it but I will say that its quiet, efficient, and delivers on the promise of on demand hot water. More later as we become better acquainted.

          This is the 1st time I've ever had a tankless water heater. Recently installed in a new build. So far so good, although we have not moved in yet. Looking forward to my 1st hot shower!

          Exemplary unit.
          Coming from a old 50 gallon tank electric water heater, this unit is night and day. The Rinnai ru199ip delivers true 120 degree water to fixtures in every corner of my home. And it's extremely fast at heating. You need some skill to install this like basic carpentry, and plimbing. The fact it uses a typical 120v appliance plug is a very nice feature. But setup is not hard at all. Just depends on your current situation and location.

            Was skeptical about tankless heaters, however we had to replace original 50 gallon heater that came with the house and our construction was such that a big OG heater would not work in allotted space. So far, so good. Water is hot, it takes a little time to get to point of need, but once there, no problems.
