Rinnai R94LSi

Rinnai R94LSi Reviews

Rinnai makes a complete range of tankless heaters to serve any size home.  The Rinnai R94LSi Tankless Water Heater has one of the highest capacities in their residential lineup which means that up to 5 outlets can enjoy continuous hot water at once, for a total of 9.4 gallons per minute maximum.  All that hot water is yours along with 40% savings on your energy usage over traditional tank-style water heaters.  The bottom line is that this fuel efficient heater will start paying for itself as soon as you install it.

And installing the Rinnai R94LSi Tankless Water Heater is a simple process because it is so compact and light.  But it is made with rugged, reliable components that come back with one of the industry’s best warranties – 12 years on the heat exchanger and 5 years on everything else.  If you need even more capacity this unit features Rinnai’s patented EZ connect which means adding a second tankless heater is quick and highly functional.  The Rinnai R94LSi is rated for commercial use and can heat water to 185F, suitable for commercial dishwashers.  For residential use the water can be heated to 140F for safe use at every outlet.  This Energy Star Rinnai features a .82 Energy Factor, the level required to qualify for the federal governments residential energy tax credit, meaning you will receive a dollar for dollar credit of 30% of the cost, up to $1,500. 

If you’ve got a large home or large family and you’re tired of hearing “don’t use all the hot water,”  this is a model well worth considering.  This Rinnai gas water heater puts a permanent end to hot water shortages and is widely offered for under $1,000.  This high capacity, energy-efficient model is designed for workhorse service in homes and businesses with a high demand for on demand hot water.

Recommended Articles

We have some articles that I would like to recommend to the readers.

Foundation Repair And Maintenance

We have described here the type of foundations, what is a foundation inspection and what should be included in a good foundation inspection checklist. We can discover problems in the foundation to make us ask ourselves if it is safe to live in a house with foundation problems and what entails a foundation repair, if it is covered by homeowners insurance and its costs.

To repair a foundation, the service provider requires an underpinning system using piers: push piers vs helical piers where helical piers are preferable for residential real estate objects, despite their costs. Also when you compare helical piers with concrete footings, we can determine that helical piers are more cost-efficient than concrete footings, in my opinion.

We have water in the crawlspace: I explain what to do when the crawlspace is flooded, if it is normal to have water in the crawlspace after a heavy rain, and the importance to perform a crawlspace waterproofing thereafter, normally by installing a vapor barrier.

I describe how to improve the air quality in the crawlspace and to accomplish this, I am reluctant to use lime powder in this article, where I explain the pros and cons, as I would be using lime powder only to avoid the dangers of raw sewage under house.

We discuss the sill plate replacement cost and how to avoid the outdoor sump pump freezing, because it happened to me once.

There are always new methods for repairing foundations. One of them that we investigate here is the Powerbrace foundation repair method.

Animals can be a problem when they live near the foundation: In the following articles we describe how to remove them and how to prevent them from digging and burrowing. The articles are about animals digging holes around the foundation or when they are burrowing below concrete, below a concrete slab, or between gaps in concrete footings, for example.

In regards to basements, I describe how to solve the hydrostatic pressure in the basement. I provide to you some reasons of why we will need a certified specialist to deal with a risky sewage backup in the basement because bacteria survives a long time in a contaminated sewage and also we discuss how to deal with a basement drain backing up in general and when it happens when flushing the toilet, something that is not a DYI project at all.


I explain here the process of concrete lifting or concrete raising, that can be done through mudjacking or slabjacking. We recommend the latter, which injects polyurethane foam.


There are some interesting articles here, in this Framing category. I refer to sistering floor joists, as a methodology to reinforce existing floor joists with some emphasis on sistering 2x6 floor joists or sistering with 2x8 instead, and about the building code for sistering joists, for sistering rafters, and the code for notching floor joists.

Water Heaters

About water heaters, we have a complete guide about water heater types and their installation requirements, about power vent water heaters, and venting in tankless devices, and I also explain in detail the difference between a mobile home water heater and a standard water heater. I also describe in detail how to remove the heating element without an element wrench using just a socket, and how to protect your water heater against the effects of hard water, and how to fix leaking.

We have some few reviews when a water heater falls into our hands, such as the Titan product portfolio, Navien lineup, the Titan N-160 reviews, the most praised by our readers, and the Rinnai R94LSi .

I study several water heater capacities and tested 20-gallon water heater units, and a comparison between point of use and tankless water heaters.

We open a tankless water heater to show how does it look like inside a tankless water heater.

After the lifecycle of the water heater is over, I reveal to you different options to proceed with its disposal.
