Perfect for cuddling in front of


This is the perfect heater for a small to medium sized area. Very cozy in a cold night. No fan so more of a raider heat but it is quiet and fast.

Purchased in July 2019.

Great little heater.


I was given this heater from a friend and although it’s not the prettiest or most modern heater it does a great job heating my small house. I’ve been waiting for it to die so i’d Have an excuse to go & get a replacement but it just keeps working...

Such a great heater


This would have to be the best gas heater that I have ever brought. This little compact gas heater heats up my dining room and hallway quite nicely. When I bought this item it was on sale for $399.00 The best money that I have spent in a long time.

I have been told Rinnai Econoheart 850 no longer exsists, yet here you are showing them. I have had one for years as it keeps going out and was told repairing it would cost as much as getting a new one, I was looking to replace it. So whats the situation ??

Hi Eve Halliwell,

Thanks for the question, the Rinnai Econoheat850 is still available, however, it is no longer permitted in Victoria as is does not comply with NOx emission requirements.

If you are located in Victoria we suggest that you consider our Rinnai Avenger, you can view all relevant details at: https://www.rinnai.com.au/heating/portable-gas-heaters/.

Just replaced another older Rinnai with an econoheat. But after about 10 minutes it turns itself off. Why?

Thanks for the question Alexander C, the unit turning off can be a symptoms of many things, including a safety shut down. We would recommend calling our Technical help desk on 1300 555 545 option 3 to discuss further.
