Great Heater when it works
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.
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.
Awesome and keeps you warm very quick!
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
Fantastic heater - extremely happy with it
We bought this heater to replace a broken Everdure. It's been fantastic since we've had it.
It comfortably heats a room that is 5m-6m long and about 4m wide. You can feel the heat come out straight away and the room is toasty shortly after. It's whisper quiet. In fact it's so quiet it's easy to forget it is on. (We actually left it on one night and woke up to a very warm lounge room.)
We've not tried all the settings out (there's quite a few - 6 or 7 maybe) but have been running in Gas Econ mode quite happily.
The control pad for bas...ic stuff is good. It's easy to set the temperature and turn it on / off. It's pretty easy to set the heating mode too - but you'll want the manual to understand all the options. It has a timer function that we've not yet used. But we will probably do so as we go further into winter. They look fairly straight forward to set up and you can have different settings for weekends and weekdays.
Questions & Answers
With moderate usage (6 hours per day) how long would an LPG 20kg bottle last?
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.
How big is the flu? Who installs it and what does it involve?
Thanks for the question W McGill, the flue for this unit would be installed by the plumber installing the unit. Each installation is different and you would be best to discuss your individual circumstances with a licenced gas plumber.
How do I turn off the auto mode on Rinnai Capella 18 plus?
