    Rinnai has been delivering nothing but the best for almost 100 years and that award-winning dedication can't help but be noticed in its SE+ Series. The RUC98iN and all of the SE+ Series models offer Rinnai's incredibly efficient condensing design line of tankless heaters. Rinnai's SE+ Series models utilize two premium heat exchangers to provide optimal reliability and durability. With a 0.95 Energy Factor and a sleek, innovative design, the RUC98iN is the ultimate option, and is easily maintained thanks to included isolation valves.
  • Compact design saves space.
  • The RUC98iN is designed to be able to be installed on any wall or in any compact space. With flexible venting options allowing for direct, concentric or twin pipe installations, Rinnai tankless water heaters are perfect for any home.
  • Energy-efficient promise that saves you money.
  • 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.
  • 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.

What is the difference between RUR98 and RUC98 water heaters?
Bill 
from District of Columbia 
December 31, 2015
Answer
The Rinnai RUR98 water heater is intended for use in a residential application and includes features to save water and simplify installation. While both models include Rinnai's Circ-Logic recirculation program, only the RUR model has a built in pump to use this feature straight out of the box. The RUR also includes a thermal by-pass valve for applications without a dedicated return line. The RUC model will require a field supplied pump to use the Circ-Logic feature. The Rinnai RUC98 model is designed with commercial applications in mind and can achieve supply temperatures of up to 180 F when used with the optional MCC-91-2US controller. The RUR model is limited to 140 F under all circumstances. In terms of performance and efficiency, the two are essentially identical.

How much demand can a Rinnai tankless water heater handle? Can you use the shower and dishwasher at the same time?
Dennis 
from North Carolina 
October 21, 2015
Answer
Sizing a tankless water heater involves a few easy steps. You can use the map on our Tankless Water Heater Buying Guide to determine your incoming water temperature (it's really easy). Based on that, you'd determine the flow rate you'll get from any tankless water heater in the specifications PDF.

For example, in Chicago we have 47 degree ground water, meaning I would want a 73 degree temperature rise. The Rinnai RUR98IP (spec sheet) will produce about 5.5 GPM at that temperature rise - more than enough to run a standard shower head and a dishwasher at the same time. Standard fixture GPM requirements can be found in the tankless water heater buying guide linked above.

Thanks for your question!
