Greetings Mark, This unit should not be used for baseboard heat as it is not designed to run for long periods of time and could shorten the life of the water heater. Thank you!

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.

After triple checking the professional install, and being on the phone with Rinnai support for roughly an hour, it was determined that our brand new unit had either a bad control board or a bad gas solenoid. I’m disappointed with the product quality, increased installation costs, and time delays.
