Long Review Rinnai Warranty.
The Rinnai B26 has a 10 year warranty and the Rinnai Infinity has a 12 years warranty on the heat exchanger.
They also have a special extended warranty that only applies if you take part in their maintenance program.
Regarding the extended warranty then yes the Warranty is 10 years less on the Rinnai B26. It has a 15 year warranty. The Infinity has a 25 year warranty.
If the Rinnai passes the 2 year mark with no problems you are in the clear for a very long time in my opinion.
They are both excellent. All of the Rinnai's we have replaced are over 20 years old.
NOTE: Let me explain the warranty.
All Continuous Flow hot water heaters have a 3 year warranty for parts and labour. This is the only warranty that matters. So both the B26 and Infinity are exactly the same regarding the warranty then.
Why the big jump forward to these 15 and 25 warranties then (Warranty with the service plan). It's just a marketing strategy in my opinion.
Rinnai are excellent and are by far my number one choice. The long warranties are like putting a warranty on the bricks of your.
