Advantages of Tankless Water Heaters

Posted: 7/20/2010

Endless Hot Water

Never take another cold shower again!  Rinnai tankless water heaters heat water on demand, so you’re never limited to a fixed pre-heated supply as with a tank.  You’ll enjoy hot water when you want it, for as long as you need it.  Take a shower, wash dishes and do laundry all at the same time!

Energy Costs

With Rinnai tankless water heaters, you’ll enjoy up to 40% energy savings.  That’s because our units are designed to be highly efficient and only heat water when it’s needed.  When the demand for water ceases, the unit shuts down and uses no energy, a revolutionary advantage over inefficient tank-style heaters.

Performance and Longevity

With a Rinnai tankless water heater, you get the durability and reliability of a commercial-grade copper heat exchanger and an industry-leading 12-year limited warranty on the heat exchanger.   Plus, Rinnai tankless water heaters have a typical life span of 20 years or more installed in residential applications, up to twice as long as a tank.

Clean, Fresh Water

When using a traditional tank-style water heater, rust and scale build-up can collect in the interior of the tank, where the hot water you use day-to-day for bathing and drinking is stored.  With Rinnai tankless water heaters there is no tank to store water, so you’ll always experience fresh, clean hot water because our unit heats water on demand as it passes through the unit.

Space Savings and Flexible Installation Options

Reclaim precious space in your home.  Traditional tank water heaters can take up to 16 square feet of valuable floor space.  However, Rinnai tankless units-about the size of a carry-on suitcase- can be installed on virtually any wall inside or outside of your home.

More Capacity

Meeting increased hot water demands can be a challenge for traditional tank-style heaters, however, with Rinnai’s innovative technology you’ll never run out of hot water.

/media/img-tank-comparison.gifOur units can be used individually, in pairs or in banks of three or more for residential, commercial and multi-family applications.

Peace of Mind

With Rinnai tankless water heaters, there’s no tank to leak or break, thus reducing the risk of flooding.  Plus, Rinnai offers a line of controllers that make it easy to set water temperatures precisely for multiple locations in your home to ensure comfort and prevent scalding accidents.

Crash Course for Vent-Free Owners

Posted: 2/11/2010

 A. Crash Course for New Vent-Free Fireplace Owners:

Your vent-free gas fireplace must be cleaned and serviced a minimum of once per year. Prior to the burning season, and additional cleaning in the middle of the season is recommended if the appliance is used heavily or it is located in an area of heavy traffic, dust, dirt, or pet hair. Failure to do so may result in unwanted odors, wall discoloration and malfunctions. Regular maintenance and cleaning is the key to years of trouble-free enjoyment of your new vent-free gas fireplace.

The firebox and damper area must be cleaned thoroughly prior to use, especially if your vent-free gas log is installed in a previously used wood burning fireplace. Failure to do so may result in unwanted colors and wall discoloration.

A vent-free gas fireplace must be “broken-in” to cure the logs and burn off any oils that were used during the manufacturing process. The “break-in” procedure consists of burning the unit at its highest setting for 5 to 6 consecutive hours. During this “break-in” procedure you may notice some light smoke and a strong smell similar to burning paper. Your home smoke/fire detector may activate during the first hour or two. If your vent-free gas log is installed in a wood-burning fireplace you may want to open the fireplace damper d during this “break-in” procedure. If your fireplace can not be vented, you may want to open some doors or windows during this procedure.

Your vent-free gas fireplace is equipped with a safety pilot and oxygen depletion system. The safety pilot is designed to stop the flow of gas if the pilot flame extinguishes. The Oxygen Depletion System, or O.D.S., is designed to shut the unit down if the oxygen level drops below 18.5%. This is well in advance of a dangerous level, however, homes with any fuel burning appliances should have a carbon monoxide alarm installed. For proper placement of a carbon monoxide alarm, refer to the alarm manufacturers instructions.

Your vent-free gas fireplace is NOT INTENDED TO BE USED AS A PRIMARY HEAT SOURCE! Vent-free gas hearth appliances are designed as a convenient, attractive, supplemental heat source. Use your vent-free fireplace only to warm the area in which it is located, Most vent-free gas logs can be burned with the damper open, if you desire ambiance rather than heat. This is only possible when the unit is installed in a fireplace with a functional damper and working chimney flue.

Your vent-free gas fireplace may raise the humidity level when burning. Because humidity levels are usually lower in the winter months, this added humidity is usually welcomed. Over use or using a vent-free unit as primary heat can cause an unsafe moisture level which can lead to unwanted problems such as mold and mildew.




What's that smell? After the “break-in” procedure is completed, the odor should gradually diminish with the first 10 to 20 hours of use. There are a few circumstances that can cause additional odors and possibly wall discoloration:


  • Frequent burning of candles or oil lamps (can also cause dark spots on walls and ceilings)

  • Burning incense

  • Painting or staining anywhere in the home

  • Pet odors and pet dander

  • Hairspray, aerosols, and cleaning products (can also cause a white powder like residue on fireplace front and logs)

  • Cigarette, cigar, or pipe smoke (can also cause a brownish discoloration on walls and ceiling)

  • Air fresheners and potpourri

  • Fans or drafty conditions that disturb the normal flame pattern ( can also cause sooting on the logs, fireplace, walls and ceiling)

  • Objects placed in or near the flames ( can also cause sooting on the logs, fireplace, walls and ceiling)

  • Dirty or improperly cleaned damper/ flue/ or fireplace( can also cause sooting on the logs, fireplace, walls and ceiling)

  • Logs improperly positioned on the burner assembly ( can also cause sooting on the logs, fireplace, walls and ceiling)

  • Dirty air inlets or pilot assembly ( can also cause sooting on the logs, fireplace, walls and ceiling)

Summary- Your vent-free gas fireplace will provide many years of warmth, ambiance, and enjoyment if properly maintenanced and used as intended.
