Amazing Heater:

published

Have been having this heater for the past 2 years and it’s running very strong during the winters.
We have been always using the Gas Econ mode and it heats up our ~30sqm area very quickly.

Easy to maintain as it needs only vacuuming the filters once in a while.

Ultimate product.

Great Heater when it works

published

The heater works great, heats up our huge living area quickly and effectively. We have only had the heater for 2 weeks and the kids love it. Our only concern is that it has stopped working last night. I have placed a call to the service centre and also sent an email but have yet been contacted for repairs. Being its winter, we need this heater to keep the house warm, especially for the kids.

Purchased in June 2019.

Exceptional

This unit does a large dining, kitchen, lounge room and far-end bedroom with little effort. Its quiet, works extremely quickly and uses almost nothing gas wise. The only thing i can fault is you cant use the remote control to turn on/off if a timer is set - it will disable it. Unfortunate but no biggy- the other pros outweigh this one minute con.

Picked one up last year and it is going strong and keeping us warm in this winter!!!
Recommend getting a Plus model as it can turn it self on/off on its own at the set temperature where as other model don't have this auto
Control! Cheers to Rinnai for the awesome product!

Finally a gas heater that turns it self off

Bought a rinnai capella 18 plus gas heater, you set the temperature and it turns off, when temperature drops it will automatically turn back on just brilliant. Bought from appliances online and very prompted next day delivery. It also has a electric booster element for if its below freezing lol

Hi kristy,

Thank you for the question.

If the timer is on and you want it removed, you may need to use the Override button to remove it which can be seen in the manual.

Our technical help team can talk you through it over the phone and can be contacted on 1300 555 545 option 3
thanks
Rinnai

s the Rinnai Capella 18 Plus CA 18 PAL legal in Victoria

Hi Raymond, existing installations with bayonet points can purchase a portable LPG only heater. New installations of these gas points are not allowed. As long as the installation in the house is pre-existing and the Cappella plus is LPG it can be legally operated.

Thanks

Capella 18Plus

With moderate usage (6 hours per day) how long would an LPG 20kg bottle last?

Rinnai A.Rinnai

Thanks for the question Jon. Based the heater working 2.5 hours running on 'HIGH' and 2.5 hours running on 'low' per day for 100 days per year (approximately a winter season) this heater will use approxiamately 3 LPG tanks.

We hope this helps.

Thanks
