Is It Worth Your Money?
The Rinnai V65iN natural gas water heater is superior to traditional water heaters in almost every way. It provides hot water on demand rather pre-heating and storing it, uses less energy, takes up less space, and can be placed anywhere in your home for faster water delivery.
With low maintenance needs, a 10-year warranty on the main heat exchanger, and low price (less than $700) for its capacity, the Rinnai V65iN tankless water heater is certainly worth the initial investment. Install it in any home that needs to run less than four hot water fixtures at a time at 98-140 degrees Fahrenheit.
Detailed Review & Breakdown
The Rinnai V65iN tankless water heater provides a number of benefits, but might not be right for every home. Here’s everything you need to know to make an informed buying decision to meet your needs.
Is This The Tankless Water Heater For You?
As a medium volume tankless water heater, the Rinnai V65iN is ideal for families of 4-5. You can run two showers, a laundry machine or dishwasher, and a hot water faucet all at the same time, never running out of hot water.
While advertising for small to medium homes, it really depends on your water usage and where you install the wall unit. If you have a large home with long plumbing lines between the kitchen and bathroom, or bathroom to bathroom, install the unit between the two to minimize wait time for hot water.
The Rinnai V65iN is a costly investment, especially compared to traditional units, and installation is not easy if you’re not adept at home maintenance. Once paid for and installed, though, you will enjoy the benefits that this tankless water heater provides.
Rinnai is a leader in tankless water heater design, and the unit rarely fails. The one downfall and this is true of all tankless water heaters, is that if your electricity goes out, the Rinnai will be unable to heat water. A traditional water heater provides one benefit in that it would still provide hot water until its tank is emptied.
Other Options Worth Looking At:
If you’re not sure if the Rinnai V65iN is right for you, consider a larger Rinnai unit, an outdoor unit, or a more efficient tank water heater. Quality tankless water heaters won’t get much cheaper than this, but you could ease the installation process with a fully electric unit.
If you’re concerned about water supply and power outages, consider a Rinnai on-demand water heater with storage. The unit will store up to 40 gallons of hot water while constantly replenishing its supply.
