When there is a demand for hot water, the Rinnai unit senses the flow and starts the heating process. This results in hot water that is not limited to what's available in your tank, so you always have clean, hot water when you want it for as long as you need it! When the demand for hot water ceases, the tankless unit shuts down and uses no energy.
Sequence of operation
A hot water tap is opened such as a kitchen / bath faucet, shower, tub or washing machine
The water flow through the Rinnai tankless water heater detects the call for hot water
The water flow turbine sends a signal to the control board which looks at multiple factors:
Incoming water temperature
Desired water temperature as set on the temperature controller
Calculated difference between the two temperatures
Depending on the calculated incoming and desired water temperatures, the gas flow into the burner assembly is modulated
The electronic ignition sequence begins
Water is heated to the desired temperature as it circulates through the copper heat exchanger providing endless hot water
When the hot water tap is turned off, the tankless water heater sequentially shuts down and is placed in a standby mode pending the next call for hot water
