On Demand Water Heater Sales & Service

On demand water heaters heat cold water to the exact temperature you require in seconds.  This is done through a heat exchanger and natural gas burner (or propane) which creates enough heat to make hot water instantly.  The best part is that the moment you stop the shower or turn off the taps the heat shuts down.  This prevents standby heat lose which a conventional tank constantly leaks into your home.  In the summer you spend money producing heat in your home with your water tank and then spend more money running the air conditioner cooling it down.

An on demand water heater is fundamentally the exact same as a Tankless water heater.

Tankless systems also have two pipes associated with their venting.  One of the pipes is used to exhaust poisonous combustion gases outside the home whereas the other is used to provide the fresh air for combustion. Why is this done? If combustion air is used from inside the home it creates negative pressure in the entire house, this then forces outside air into the home.  On nice days this probably isn’t an issue but during the winter or hot summer days you then need to run your furnace or A/C to compensate.

On Demand Water Heater

on demand water heater

What is an on demand water heater? Well it is simply a different name for a tankless water heater.  If you think about how a tankless works it’s easy to understand why some people may say or call it an on demand water heater.

On demand water heaters nearly instantly heat water up to a desired temperature by running it through a heat exchanger.  How much hot water produced is related directly to the amount of energy output by the burner.  Although water is a liquid it is very dense and requires an awful lot of energy to heat it up.  This is part of the challenge in your homes hot water heater.

A conventional water heater roughly puts out 40,000 BTU when heating the water in the storage tank.  An on demand tankless suitable for Toronto and the GTA needs to produce about 150,000 to 200,000 BTU’s.  This much energy is necessary to sufficiently heat enough water fast enough during winter months.

Although this is 4-5 times the gas consumption an on demand water heater, as the name implies, only needs to heat the water when you need it.  Alternatively a conventional tank will run constantly to maintain hot water even when you don’t need it.  The saving a tankless produces can amount to a 40% reduction on your homes water heating bill.

Rinnai Changes Ultra Series Tankless

Ultra Series Tankless

Rinnai has changed the Ultra series tankless water heaters to better reflect the designation with the model number.

Basically the tankless has remained the same internally and the name has just changed.

RC98i has been changed to RU98i

Rc80i has changed to RU80i

Personally I think they did this to better differentiate their models of tankless water heaters.  Rinnai has a bit of an alternative way to categorizing their systems and it goes as such:

  1. Value Series
  2. Luxury Series
  3. Ultra Series

The Value Series, as Rinnai calls it, are rarely if ever sold in Toronto, the GTA, or Southern Ontario for that matter.  Our water is just a bit too cold in the winter to be able to install these units and expect reliability.  They could work great for cottage or seasonal use though.

The Luxury Series is where we start to get into tankless systems suitable for Ontario home owners.  The RL94i and the RL75i being the two systems.

The Ultra Series tankless systems suitable for the Greater Toronto Area consist of the RU98i and RU80i.

Rinnai Model Code Breakdown.

I’m not 100% certain on this but as far as I know this is how Rinnai model name is broken down. Using the new RU80i as an example.

RU80i

R = Rinnai

U = Ultra (for the ultra series which consists of only condensing tankless systems)

80 = This indicated max hot water output at a certain temperature rise (8.0 gallons)

i = Signals that this is an indoor model (e specifies that a Rinnai tankless is outdoor)

Here is another example

Rl75i

R = Rinnai

L = Luxury (for the Luxury series which consists of only non-condensing tankless systems)

75 = This indicated max hot water output at a certain temperature rise (7.5 gallons)

i = Signals that this is an indoor model (e specifies that a Rinnai tankless is outdoor)
