The Rinnai RC98i condensing tankless water heater delivers more efficiency than any of the previous models before. These systems are suitable for commercial applications employing a specialize commercial digital controller. This controller allows the heater to output water temperatures between 98°F – 185°F , much hotter than residential applications. The RC98i is capable of performing all this at an efficiency rating of 96% . Rinnai’s condensing tankless water heaters offer the same reliability customers have come to expect  from Rinnai’s products.  Dependability and reliability are what makes the RC98i an excellent choice for any industrial or commercial settings. The “ultra condensing efficiency” of the RC98i offers substantial savings and contributes to a green-friendly environment. Exhaust gas temperatures don’t exceed 35 degrees Celsius (90 Fahrenheit) making the venting and installation process clean, simple, and cost effective.  Toronto and the surrounding areas can have relatively cold incoming water temperatures in the winter but with 199,000 BTU maximum output allows this system is able to heat up a lot of water fast.
