Tankless water heater includes circulation pump for instant hot water

Imagine turning on a shower and getting hot water almost immediately. Considering the average family loses precious time and numerous gallons a day waiting for water to heat up, that would be an invaluable change in routine.

At the 2015 AHR Expo, Frank Windsor, general manager of Rinnai, reviewed the company's water heater line that includes a built-in recirculation pump that can cut the wait for hot water.

Rinnai’s Ultra Series Tankless Water Heater RUR Models use thermal bypass technology that includes an integrated recirculation pump, an internal bypass line inside the unit and a thermal bypass valve provided inside the box to send unlimited hot water wherever and whenever it’s needed, all in one comprehensive solution. By keeping a steady supply of heated water in the supply line during active circulation periods, the RUR makes hot water rapidly available in showers, sinks and appliances such as washing machines and dishwashers.

Getting hot water faster creates significant benefits above and beyond the convenience of saving time. Recirculation means less water and money down the drain, saving on natural resources and the utility costs related to gas and water usage. And you can save even more energy by programming the 24-hour digital controller that’s included in the box. It enables the scheduling of multiple recirculation events throughout the day to align with usage patterns and ensure hot water is available at the fixtures during peak demand times such as early morning before work and school.

With the typical U.S. home wasting potentially thousands of gallons of water annually waiting for hot water, the RUR’s fast-track delivery system pays off at the faucet and in the budget. And the convenience and comfort of hot water recirculation is an attractive feature that adds resale value to a home.

Adaptable to plumbing systems with or without a dedicated recirculation line, the Ultra Series Tankless Water Heater RUR Models are the only tankless water heaters to feature both Concentric and PVC/CPVC venting options on the same unit, offering the ultimate flexibility.
