Tankless Water Heater Phoenix AZ-Install Repair Replace

Did you know if you were to convert an electric water heater to a natural gas water heater, you would save the same amount of CO2 emissions in one year as recycling 1.7 tons of waste.

Rinnai tankless water heaters heat water only when you need it. So you save money and reduce waste by not heating and reheating the same tank of water.

When there is a demand for hot water, the Rinnai tankless water heater senses the flow and starts the heating process. This results in hot water that is not limited to what’s available in your tank, so you always have clean, hot water when you want it for as long as you need it! When the demand for hot water ceases, the tankless water heater shuts down and uses no energy.
 
    Sequence of operation
  • A hot water tap is opened such as a kitchen / bath faucet, shower, tub or washing machine
  • The water flow through the Rinnai tankless water heater detects the call for hot water
  • The water flow turbine sends a signal to the control board which looks at multiple factors:
    • Incoming water temperature
    • Desired water temperature as set on the temperature controller
    • Calculated difference between the two temperatures
  • Depending on the calculated incoming and desired water temperatures, the gas flow into the burner assembly is modulated
  • The electronic ignition sequence begins
  • Water is heated to the desired temperature as it circulates through the copper heat exchanger providing endless hot water
  • When the hot water tap is turned off, the tankless water heater sequentially shuts down
Experience an endless supply of fresh hot water– for bathing, cooking, dishes, laundry, and all the other countless ways hot water enriches your life.

With a Rinnai tankless water heater, you’ll enjoy hot water when you need it – for as long as you want it!

Condensing Tankless Water Heater FAQ
Plumbing Engineer - February 2011

How does a condensing tankless water heater work?
Like any tankless water heater, it is an on-demand system with no hot-water storage and no pilot light burning 24/7. When a hot-water appliance, faucet or fixture is turned on, the tankless system senses flow, and a spark igniter activates the gas burner. As cold water enters the system, the heat exchanger rapidly raises the temperature of the flow to the designated set point before the water proceeds to its destination. However long the fixture or appliance operates, the tankless unit will meet the demand for water at the set temperature; i.e., “endless hot water.” A condensing unit uses the same sequence of steps to generate hot water but also incorporates a secondary heat exchanger to capture more heat from the combustion gases before they enter the venting at the top of the flue. This secondary heat exchanger then preheats the incoming water on its way to the primary heat exchanger, increasing the unit’s efficiency.

How much heat does the secondary exchanger absorb?
In a conventional tankless unit, the gas temperature at the top of the flue is between 330 F and 360 F. In a condensing unit, the secondary heat exchanger will lower this temperature to around 105 F to 130 F — a major difference without sacrificing hot-water output or water pressure. This reduction is why venting with PVC is permitted.

What happens to the condensate?
The process of reducing combustion-gas temperatures necessarily creates condensate in the flue, an acid-water mixture that drips back into the water heater and through the secondary heat exchanger. If that device is made of aluminum or copper, the unit will likely corrode over time, undermining both performance and longevity. A secondary heat exchanger made entirely of stainless steel will not have this corrosion problem, extending the life of the water heater, albeit at a higher unit cost.

Is condensing tankless any more difficult to install than a conventional model?
No, and with PVC venting, installation should go more quickly and easily. The installer can build the vent run using four-inch PVC throughout. Or, if the termination point in the wall is three inches and the homeowner does not wish to enlarge it, the installer can reduce the run to that smaller size. The biggest installation difference is the need to install a condensate line, but this requirement should not add much time or cost to the installation. A condensing tankless model typically has a half-inch port at its base. Following local codes, the installer simply runs a pipe from this port to a nearby drain. Finally, a condensing tankless unit will be slightly larger than a conventional unit with comparable specifications — but not by much. The larger dimensions should not impact handling on the job site nor will they lessen the inherent space-savings advantage of tankless. A great example is the ability to install a tankless water heater in a crawl space — not exactly an easy proposition for a tank-type water heater.
Green   Get the "Green" Advantage. As the leading manufacturer of gas heating products worldwide, Rinnai continues innovating to ensure a greener environment. Rinnai’s superior hot water technology delivers greater efficiency and reliability, so everyone benefits – with environmental preservation and energy conservation that results in a better planet for us all.

What makes Rinnai “Green”?
Reduced Energy and Operating Costs - Rinnai tankless water heaters reduce energy consumption by up to 40% by heating water only on demand and avoiding standby loss.

Water Conservation - The compact design of a Rinnai tankless water allows flexibility with installation so it can be located closer to fixtures and appliances, saving on water consumption because the “wait” time for hot water is reduced.

Cleaner Air and a Healthier Home - SCAQMD approved, each Rinnai tankless water heater produces very low NOx (less than 40 PPM) and CO2 emissions, contributing to cleaner air and a healthier home and making it an environmentally sound gas appliance.

Protecting Natural Resources - With up to a 20-year service life, Rinnai tankless water heaters last 2-3 times longer and are significantly smaller in size than traditional tank water heaters, thus reducing the amount of material that ends up in landfills. The primary components of Rinnai tankless water heaters (including the copper heat exchanger and stainless steel burners} are recyclable.

Advantages of Tankless Water Heaters
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.

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.

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. Our units can be used individually, in pairs or in banks of three or more for residential, commercial and multi-family applications. Tank Comparison

Federal Tax Credits Extended for 2011
The Tax Relief, Unemployment Insurance Reauthorization, and Job Creation Act of 2010 signed by President Obama on December 17, 2010, extended tax credits for qualifying energy-efficient, residential water heaters and boilers placed in service between January 1, 2011 and December 31, 2011. The structure is similar to the 2009-2010 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, however, the credit amount has changed. Water heaters are still required to have an energy factor >= 0.82 or a thermal efficiency >= 90%, and boilers must have an AFUE >= 95.

Effective Dates

January 1, 2011 through December 31, 2011.

Product Qualifications and Credit Amount
Product: Tankless Water Heaters
Qualifications: Energy factor (EF) >= 0.82
Credit Amount: 10% of installation cost ($300 maximum)
All current Rinnai condensing and non-condensing tankless water heaters qualify with the exception of the R98LS

    Guidelines
  • The Rinnai tankless water heater or boiler must be “placed in service” between January 1, 2011 and December 31, 2011.
    • The IRS defines "placed in service" as when the product is ready and available for use.
  • The Rinnai tankless water heater or boiler must be installed in or on the taxpayers’ principal residence in the United States.
  • The tax credit is ONLY available for existing homes.
  • There is an overall cap of $500 for fiscal years 2006 – 2011 combined. If you have ever claimed this credit in the past, it counts toward
     the $500 cap (but does not affect the $1500 limit available for 2009 and 2010). So, for example, if you claimed $300 in 2007, you can
     only claim $200 in 2011; if you claimed $800 in 2009, you cannot claim any more credit.

  • How to Claim Your Tax Credit for 2011
  • Purchase and install a qualifying Rinnai tankless water heater or boiler between Jan. 1, 2011 - Dec. 31, 2011.
  • Save your proof of purchase along with a copy of the 2011 Manufacturer’s Certification Statement (available soon).
  • When filing your 2011 taxes, use IRS Form 5695 (2011 version) - it will be available late 2011 or early 2012. Consult a tax professional for further details.
Still need to apply for your 2010 Federal Tax Credit? Download and save the 2010 Manufacturer’s Certification Statement along with a copy of your proof of purchase. Consult a tax professional for further details.
