    Rinnai is raising the bar in tankless heating technology with their SENSEI™ tankless water heaters. Rinnai's SENSEI™ series provides a better experience for both users and installers alike with simple installation, serviceability, efficient performance, and flexible venting options. A corrosion-resistant stainless steel heat exchanger, integrated check valve, and included safety devices allow for powerful and efficient water heating for years to come.
  • Continuous Water for Multiple Applications
  • Rinnai tankless water heaters provide an endless supply of hot water that remains uninterrupted, even when you're the last one in line for the shower.
  • Energy Efficient Promise
  • Tankless water heaters avoid the need to keep a large amount of reserve water heated at all times. This saves energy by only heating water when you need it, while an entirely electric ignition avoids the constantly wasted energy of a standing pilot light.
  • Wi-Fi Compatible
  • Every SENSEI™ water heater is Wi-Fi compatible for remote monitoring and management.
  • Enhanced Combustion Design
  • The Rinnai SENSEI™ series water heaters feature a fiber mesh premix burner that provides an even flame distribution for optimal performance and efficiency.
  • Stainless Steel Heat Exchanger
  • The included stainless steel heat exchanger features corrosion-resistant properties to ensure reliable and long-lasting operation, while its superior efficiency puts the SENSEI™ series at the top of its class.
  • Flexible Venting Options
  • Perfect for both new installs and retrofits, the SENSEI™ features the most flexible venting in the industry. Whether your install requires concentric, direct, room air, or common venting, the SENSEI™ series can handle it all.
  • Simple Installation and Serviceability
  • The SENSEI™ water heater features an adjustable mounting plate and a rotatable pressure relief valve to accommodate a variety of install applications. An easily accessible control panel and parameter adjustment allow for fast and simple servicing.
  • Includes Isolation Valves & Pressure Relief Valve
  • Enables easy preventative maintenance, annual flushing, and serviceability.
  • Delivers a $100 value, with no additional purchase necessary.

Medium Learn More
Medium
Medium refers to the substance that carries heat through the heating system. Systems are either designed to use either Hot Water or Steam as a medium, and components are usually specific to one or the other.
Hot Water
Fuel Type Learn More
Fuel Type
To create heat, some form of fuel is required. Fuel Type specifies what the product uses as an input to create heat.
Natural Gas
Combustion Type Learn More
Combustion Type
Condensing appliances use leftover thermal energy from combustion gases to heat water in a secondary heat exchanger, resulting in higher efficiency and lower exhaust temperature.
Condensing
Vent Type Learn More
Vent Type
Products that use combustion (burning) of fuel to create heat also create potentially dangerous gasses that need to be exhausted (AKA "Vented"). Depending on the product, venting can be done via a chimney, through a side wall, or use a second vent to provide fresh air to the appliance.
