The condensing units have more vent options, and have higher efficiency ratings. --Tashay

Used to a water tank so how would you raise the temp in this unit?

There are parameter settings available using the controller. There is a tech data sheet in the inside of the front panel of the unit. This will be helpful. --Tashay

Answers

You don't have to run the recirculation pump at all. I have tried it both ways. Even at the far end of the house it does not take long to have hot water without the recirc pump. Obviously much faster if you run the pump.

Just received my unit and it definitely does not come with the wifi unit in the box?

Asked by JRW August 23, 2020
2
Answers

Depends on which one you ordered. Some do not come with it. Mine was in the box as I ordered it.

This shows to be an exterior unit. Can in go in a basement that has direct access to the outside?

Asked by August 13, 2020
1
Answer

Greetings, Yes, this unit can be placed in a basement as long as it is installed into an exterior wall as this is required for the venting system. Thank you!

Is a upgraded controller required or can you control it with buttons on the front of the unit?

I control mine with the buttons on the front.

First Class Water Heater
Quality, efficient, easy to install Installed it about 3 months ago as a replacement for Noritz that sprung a leak after 10 years of trouble free, maintenance free service! So far exceeds all my expectations. The Rinnai is so efficient that the exhaust was at the ambient temperature on the initial start, I thought it wasn’t working only to open the cover and saw the flame in the combustion chamber. I was truly amazed. The old Noritz exhaust was so hot I had to be careful when working near the exhaust.

2 years with Rinnia
We have had this Rinnia product for over 2 years. It has been zero maintenance and performed without a fault.
by John9427
Easy to install; fired right up.
A plumber friend and I installed it in a short time and it fired up immediately. Did not buy the wifi-enabled version. as I worry about hackability in general.
by Chuckster8583
Recirculation unit doesn't provide hot water as quickly as old...
Recirculation unit doesn't provide hot water as quickly as old water heater did, so the efficiency in electricity only leads to a waste of water as there is a need to run water for 5 minutes to get hot.

Response from Rinnai Product ExpertMay 25, 2021
We are sorry for the delay with getting hot water. Please email us at customercare@rinnai.us, we would love to discuss options with you. --Tashay RinnaiAmerica
New tankless
Size is more than adequate. It was installed in January. It meets my expectations fully. I am no longer heating water when I don’t need it. No more running out of hot water after washing dishes, taking two showers, and one bath every night.

I spent a lot of money for an outdoor tankless and didn’t expect to get 0 support.
by Rj8778
Great product.
Efficient and doesn’t take up room inside of my house. No worries with it leaking and ruining your home. This is the second home that we requested that the plumber used a Rinnai water heater. Prior to that we had another brand of tankless water heater and had issues with it but not with a Rinnai.

I was never thrilled about a tank in the attic, or in the garage. Rinnai allowed me to place the unit outside with the HVAC and generator. We've had it a couple of months now; it meets all our needs and I haven't seen much movement on the propane tank gauge!

Love my tankless!
Had for about 4 months. Meets all of my expectations. I never run out of hot water and I have a large jacuzzi tub!
