Rinnai heaters, as mentioned two entries ago, are an incredibly efficient resource for the winter months. Rather than heat a house with traditional oil heating, or with a woodstove (if you live in the city & this isn’t a possibility), a Rinnai heater is an environmentally conscious way of staying toasty warm. The best part is the monthly bill… no, I’m not joking. Think about your average oil bill for January — don’t tell me, I don’t want to know — I just want you to keep that in mind when I tell you that last winter in our old apartment, Ryan & I were spending $30 a month on average. This was during snowstorms, ice storms, & all of the other lovely winter things that Mother Nature brings to New England.
The only foreseeable problem that I am aware of, is that the Rinnai heater really does work best in a small space. Our apartment was the tiniest one bedroom I have ever seen & this might be one of the reasons that the heater worked so incredibly well. However, there was a sprawling apartment just below us, whose ceilings were tall, & with windows a plenty. In that apartment there were two Rinnais, one on each end of the apartment, & it seemed to do the job that way. I just wanted to let you know about the fantastic world of Rinnai heaters. I have no complaints whatsoever & would readily suggest this as an option to anyone concerned with the environment, economics & staying warm this winter season.
