Frequently Asked Question ("FAQ")
Q1: What is the difference between this model, the RUC98iN and the older RU98iN?
A1: There is only one difference. With the RUC98iN, Rinnai added a PVC adapter at the vent opening. Otherwise the units are identical.
Q2: What is the difference between this model, the RUC98iN and the newer RU199iN?
A2: The RU199iN has several improvements, mainly:
* It has more modular components, making the unit easier to service and repair.
* The heat exchanger is stainless steel versus copper on the RUC98iN.
* It has a zero governor gas valve which allows it to work with lower pressure in the gas pipe.
* It has more venting options. It can use 2" PVC venting or concentric. RUC98iP required 3" or 4" PVC or concentric.
* The included NG to LP conversion kit is easier to change.
* The warranty is 15 years versus 12 years on the RUC98iN.
Q3: What is the difference between the RU, RUR and RUC series?
A3: Rinnai's RU series heaters such as the RU80e and RU90e are simply the outdoor versions of the RUC units.
The RUR series heaters such as the RUR98i and the RUR98e have a built-in recirculation pump. The RUC series heaters such as the RUC98i and the RUC80i do not have the recirc pump.
All of these heaters are condensing.
