Hot water is something we rarely think about until something goes wrong. Most families in America get hot water from a device in their home that was basically invented in the 1800’s. This uses a lot of energy, to keep a tank of water heated all day for us to use. Most of the day, the energy is wasted as the tank repeatedly loses heat and spends energy to reheat again and again. Then, when we really need it, even the biggest tanks can run out, leaving us out of luck in our time of need. Tankless water heaters are a great advance in technology and a huge improvement that can solve all these issues.
Top performance that saves you money.
A tankless water heating system uses up to 40 percent less energy than a traditional tank because it heats the water on demand. Instead of maintaining the temperature of a huge tank full of water, it uses super-efficient copper heat exchangers to heat the water as it moves through the pipes. It will heat up as much as you need and no more. By only operating when you need hot water, and because there is no storage tank to heat and reheat throughout the day, this tankless technology ends up saving you big on energy and utility costs. There isn’t even an energy-wasting pilot light to worry about!
Available energy efficiency rebates and tax credits offer the opportunity to help make your purchases more affordable. Take advantage of them and start saving now on your power bills.
Long term advantages of Tankless Water Heaters
Tankless water heaters last much longer than standard tank models, which is about 6 years on average. Tankless water heaters can last up to twice as long as that! (based on DOE Energy STAR lifecycle estimates).
Around Town will help you find the perfect unit for your home to optimize your installation and customize your efficiency. Increase your home’s value with premium technology, increased energy efficiency, an improved Home Energy Rating System (HERS) Index Score and optimized LEED certification. Best yet, each and very part of the Rinnai Tankless Water Heaters we use are replaceable. That means components can be easily exchanged, if needed, so you don’t have to replace the entire system if one little part breaks.

Stay green with a sustainable choice
Earth-friendly efficiency: Our tankless technology achieves maximum energy efficiency, helping to conserve natural resources.
Less waste: Compact heat-exchanger design, longer product lifespan up to twice as long as a traditional tank** and recyclable parts means less waste in landfills.
High standards for low emissions: Lower CO2 emissions contribute to cleaner air and a healthier environment.
Tankless technology that saves you time.
Never think about your hot water needs again: Innovative technology provides an endless supply of hot water whenever and wherever it’s needed – even for simultaneous uses at multiple fixtures. Showers and baths? Absolutely. Laundry and dishes? No problem. Prioritizing activities and scheduling hot water use is a thing of the past with tankless technology.
Save space with a compact design.
Maximum output, minimum space: About the size of a small suitcase at 18.5” x 26” x 10” or smaller, these wall-mounted models can be installed on interior or exterior walls and in compact spaces to free up valuable space.
Flexible installation: Small size allows for installation in non-traditional spaces such as crawl spaces and attics, making it perfect for use in any size home, including manufactured and modular homes.

How a Rinnai Tankless Water Heater Works
- When the need for hot water arises by turning on a shower, washing machine, dishwasher or faucet, cold water enters the Rinnai Tankless Water Heater from the inlet pipe at the bottom of the model. The PC board is then signaled to activate the flame igniter or ignition.
- A combustion fan turns on to allow oxygen into the burner to ignite the flame as the gas control valve opens at a low frequency.Once an adequate flame is present the igniter stops sparking —beginning the next sequence of operation in a matter of seconds.
- Water is heated as it passes through the coils of the copper heat exchanger, and exits from the hot water outlet pipe to travel through the pipes of the home or business to the water fixture where hot water is needed. For Condensing models, the water is preheated as it passes through a secondary stainless steel (latent) heat exchanger, capturing any extra heat (or latent heat) before it escapes into the vent system.
- The gas valve and blower automatically adjust the incoming gas and oxygen to meet the water heating demands. If the demand is small, the Rinnai Tankless Water Heater can use a smaller flame and less gas. If the demand is greater, the flame can expand across the width of the entire burner to heat more water. The tankless water heater adjusts as needed to ensure the temperature set point is maintained. A digital controller allows the user to choose the desired temperature.
- As the hot water fixture shuts off, cold water stops entering the tankless water heater and the flame diminishes. The combustion fan continues to operate at a low speed for a short period of time. This allows the exhaust of any leftover combustion gases in the system.
