Question about Rinnai RHFE-1004FA 38,400 BTU Energy Saver Ductless Heater - LP Gas
My lpg gas heater doesn't seem to be warming us this year. Somene told me I could blow any internal dust out with a compressor but i don't have one. Is this true and can I use something else like the vacuum cleaner to **** it out? I have cleaned the rear filters
Hi Rhonda, you posted this heater as a Rinnai 1004. If this is correct the burner etc. is actually sealed from the inside of the house so no amount of blowing air would clean the actual burner. You are right to clean the filters, this should be done almost weekly during the winter if the heater is in daily use. Lack of heat could be caused by many things, sometimes I have traced it to external reasons, dodgy loft insulation for one that was actually causing the heat in the house to be lost quicker. Sometimes the weather is just colder ! At the end of the day a bit of a vacuum might make it look cleaner but you can never get in to the parts that matter like the fan/heat exchnager or burner. I started as a gas fitter in England many years ago where gas heaters are serviced at least once a year so i am a bit biased but a truly belive that if you think the unit might be under performing, get someone in to give it a not only a proper clean but also check safety and correct operating specification.
