Keeping an entire home or office heated can be taxing on both your budget and the environment. Fortunately, the forward-thinkers over at Rinnai have made it their business to create a lineup of affordable, energy-saving products that also operate at the highest level of quality.
At SUPPLY.com, we believe in only giving the best to our customers, which is why we partner with Rinnai on such a regular basis. In this article, we’ve come up with a list of the most energy efficient products Rinnai offers across its four main categories: tankless water heaters, condensing boilers, wall furnaces, and vent-free fan convectors. If you’re looking for a way to heat your space during the upcoming winter months, but you also want to be smart with the amount of energy you use, then read on to find the products that are best for you.
Tankless Water Heaters
The most popular of Rinnai’s product lines, the tankless water heater gives you hot water whenever you need it. According to Rinnai themselves, the Rinnai tankless water heater “features durable heat exchangers to provide maximum efficiency and uses up to 40 percent less energy than a traditional tank.” Plus, with an electronic ignition mechanism featured with each heater, you won’t have to worry about keeping an energy-consuming pilot light lit when the unit is not in use.
If you’re in the market for energy efficiency, we recommend the Rinnai Ultra Tankless Water Heater RUR model (pictured). It is Energy STAR qualified, and includes a recirculation pump that keeps hot water at the ready, no matter the time of day or the amount of people using it.
If you’re looking for a more general heating product that works with both air and water, your best bet is a condensing boiler from Rinnai. While normal heating products waste excess heat by expelling it into the outdoors, the condensing boiler takes this heat and funnels it right back into the system, meaning it wastes practically nothing!
The Q Series from Rinnai is probably their most efficient boiler model, seeing how it is able to run off either natural gas or propane. However, if you have a smaller space with 1-2 baths, you might want to consider the Rinnai E Series, which caters specifically to domestic spaces and comes in both air and air-plus-water varieties.

For larger indoor spaces, central heating might not always be enough when the cold months come along. Fortunately, Rinnai offers a lineup of furnaces that allow you to target the spaces that other heating vents just can’t reach. These furnaces sit in front of the wall and come equipped with heat modulators that constantly measure the temperature of the surrounding room, and then adjust their own settings to bring the room up or down to your desired level.
Looking for an energy efficient wall furnace? Look no further than the EX08CTP EnergySaver model – it’s right there in the name! This unit is the least expensive model Rinnai offers, operates on propane, and is both smaller and quieter than most models on the market.
Vent-Free Fan Convectors
Finally, the Rinnai vent-free fan convector (a rather fancy term for “space heater”) is a much more portable unit built to reach and heat even the smallest corners. Due to its portability, the unit is able to retain heat that would otherwise be lost in ducts or vents, making it a product with 99.9% energy efficiency. Fortunately, this statement holds true for the entire Rinnai convector collection, meaning that any unit you choose will operate at the highest level of efficiency in the industry. Our recommendation? Check out the propane-fueled R Series heater – it’s a bestseller!
