Generally speaking, tankless water heaters come with greater benefits than traditional storage tank water heaters. This is especially true if you’re not looking to replace your existing tanked water heater with a tankless water heater. However, if you’re looking into switching from a storage tank to a tankless water heater, you’ll still benefit in the long run. This is because tankless water heaters last longer and are typically more efficient to operate.
In this article, we go into more detail about all the benefits that come with installing a Rinnai tankless water heater.
Rinnai Tankless Water Heater Benefits
Rinnai, specifically, is the top supplier of tankless technology in North America. So, when you go tankless, go with a Rinnai tankless water heater. They’re the top in tankless technology, with some models even coming with wifi capability. Rinnai tankless water heaters last longer than tank water heaters, come with a longer warranty, and are more energy efficient.
Installing or switching to a water heater without a storage tank might take some getting used to, but it definitely has its benefits. Take a look at some more benefits of a Rinnai tankless water heater.
Unlimited supply of hot water.
You won’t have to limit your showers to 5 or 10 minutes. A Rinnai tankless water heater heats the water on demand so you have a limitless supply of hot water. Hot water is always available when you have a Rinnai tankless.
Tankless water heaters only heat water as needed, whereas tanked heaters heat and reheat a constant supply of water all the time. This makes them more energy efficient.
On top of that, there are Rinnai tankless water heaters that are ENERGY STAR qualified. And an ENERGY STAR certified tankless water heater can save you 30% more energy compared to standard storage tank water heaters.
As mentioned, Rinnai tankless water heaters use less energy. This saves you money on energy bills. Plus, there are models that allow for re-circulation so you can have faster water at your faucet and less wasted water. This can also save you money on your water bill.
No risk of water damage.
Since there’s no storage tank, you know you’ll never experience a leak or flood like homes with a traditional storage tank water heater have the potential to.
Compared to tanked water heaters, Rinnai tankless models last up to twice as long and have twice the warranty. Most tank water heaters last around 10-15 years, while tankless heaters can last for up to 20 years or more.
Traditional hot water heaters with tanks keep a constant supply of water sitting inside the tank at all times. This allows for the buildup of mineral deposits. Since there’s no tank with a Rinnai tankless model, the water is cleaner.
Tankless units are about the size of a small suitcase, whereas storage tank water heaters usually require a clearance of 60 inches (152 cm) of height and 24 inches (60 cm) of width. This takes up quite a bit of valuable floor space. If space is already limited in your house, a tankless water heater is a better option.
With a Rinnai tankless heater, you can use digital controllers to adjust the output water temperature as you desire. Some models even have the Rinnai Smart-Circ Intelligent Recirculation, which learns your hot water usage patterns and schedules recirculation accordingly. With this feature, you get hot water faster and exactly when you need it.
