What temperature should I set my Rinnai tankless water heater?
For your safety, Rinnai tankless water heaters come with a maximum temperature default setting of 120℉ to help prevent scalding. However, by following these simple steps, you can increase the temperature to 140℉ if you choose.
Why is my tankless water heater not getting hot enough?
Because tankless units only heat water as it’s needed, running too many hot water appliances at the same time could mean the unit just can’t keep up. On the other hand, your “no hot water” problem could be cause by a bigger issue such as: Plugged heat exchanger (due to hard water) A blocked vent/air intake.
Press On/Off button twice. Turn hot water back on and test. You may have to try this a couple times to reset the system.
What temp should I set my tankless water heater?
You’ll want to shoot for 100-115 degrees Fahrenheit for your water to be heated. If your groundwater temperature is 60 degrees and you want your shower at 110 degrees, that’s going to be a 50-degree rise.
What is the life expectancy of a Rinnai tankless water heater?
The life expectancy (or useful lifespan) of a Rinnai tankless water heater is up to 20 years. Actual life is impacted by water quality, usage and proper maintenance. For comparison, a tankless water heater lasts about twice as long as a tank water heater, making them a better value in the long run.
What is the downside of a tankless water heater?
The primary disadvantage of on demand or instant hot water heaters is the upfront cost. The smaller units that you often see won’t produce enough hot water to serve most households. They’ll only serve one faucet at a time—a problem if you want to shower while the dishwasher is running.
How do you troubleshoot a Rinnai tankless water heater?
How to Fix: Confirm no loose, damaged, or broken connections on the leak detector. Check heat exchanger and all piping for leaks. If no leaks found, wipe out any water inside cabinet, dry off leak sensor, and restart unit. If error code reappears, unplug sensor and fire up the water heater.
1. Press the “Priority button” on the temperature controller. The Priority light will glow indicating that this controller is controlling the temperature and that the Rinnai water heater is ready to supply hot water.
Why does my tankless hot water heater go cold?
Another problem that tankless water heaters can run into is that of a cold water sandwich—a plumbing term given to sudden temperature fluctuations, when your tankless water heater produces hot and cold water intermittently. This can be caused by: A dirty water filter on the cold water inlet.
Why does my tankless water heater take so long?
The length of the delay can be determined by a few factors, including the distance between the water heater and the outlet. In other words, the longer the water has to travel, the more cold water will need to be discharged before the hot water appears.
