Rinnai Tankless Water Heater Systems

You’ve likely had this experience before; you are taking a shower and someone starts the dishwasher, washing machine, or flushes the commode. Sudden changes in water temperature can really ruin a nice day.  Enter Rinnai Tankless Water Heater. “Tankless water heaters revolutionize the way you use hot water. They produce more hot water, at a more consistent temperature, using less energy than typical tank-style water heaters (”


Rinnai describes the process as using a heat exchanger that only heats the water as you need it, making it extremely energy efficient, convenient, and cost-conscious. The 45-year old company boasts an average savings of 40% on your electric bill.


Due to the sleek design of the tankless water heater system, Judd Builders can install the unit on any wall of your home, or even on an outside wall, if you prefer. Utility rooms are no longer a necessary placement.


The longevity of the Rinnai Tankless Water Heater is perhaps the most attractive feature. With a life-expectancy of 20 years (double the average life span of a traditional unit), your home will be more competitive in a buyer’s market, as well.


The team at Judd Builders is anxious to talk to you about the use of the Rinnai Tankless Water Heater system in your new home or your upcoming remodel. Please call us today at (828)274-4448.
