If you’re considering buying a new air conditioning system in Melbourne, you’ve probably considered Rinnai. The Rinnai brand has been in Australia for more than half a century, and as well as hot water systems, Rinnai is known for producing heating and cooling systems.
In this article, we’re going to outline why you may want to consider a Rinnai air conditioner or heating system for your home. From smart features to eco-friendly design to local manufacturing, there are many reasons why Australians choose Rinnai.
Read on to find out more and see if Rinnai is right for you.
Before we learn all about Rinnai systems, it’s useful to have a few criteria to judge them against. Generally speaking, when people shop for air conditioning systems, they are looking for the following things:
With the above criteria in mind, let’s take an overall look at why you might choose Rinnai:
Rinnai offers solutions for everything from small bedrooms to large living rooms to whole-home heating and cooling. Here are some of the most popular Rinnai air conditioning products.
Split system air conditioners are Australia’s most popular form of space heating and cooling. You install an indoor unit on one side of a wall and an outdoor unit on the exterior of your property and you can enjoy heating and cooling that’s designed for a single room.
Rinnai offers a range of reverse cycle split systems in Melbourne for year-round comfort. These units can keep you cool in temperatures up to 52°C and provide heating at -15°C, which is unprecedented in Melbourne! Generally speaking, you can expect your Rinnai split system to feature inverter technology, quality components, and optimised air distribution for rooms of all sizes.
Rinnai Split Systems include the C Series, D Series, G Series, J Series, and Q Series, as well as Inverter Cassette models that replace the indoor unit with a recessed ceiling cassette. Starting at 2.5kW, these systems reach up to 8.0kW depending on the model, or 13.4kW for cassette systems.
Rinnai Split Systems may also include programmable timers, self-cleaning functionality, and Wi-Fi control. Whether you’re looking for split systems in Box Hill or split air conditioning in Dandenong, Rinnai is undoubtedly a great choice.
Ducted air conditioning is a great way to heat and cool every room in the home simultaneously. Ducted installations involve installing an outdoor unit and placing a series of ducts below the floor or in the ceiling cavity. Inside your home, a ducted system is almost invisible except for the sleek ducts/outlets on the ceiling or floor and a wall-mounted controller.
Rinnai offers a range of ducted reverse cycle air conditioners, which offer incredibly energy-efficient and cost-effective heat pump heating and cooling. You can even add zoning options to Rinnai ducted systems to divide the home into zones and offer individual comfort in every area.
Other features of these systems include 3D DC inverter compressors, which are quiet and efficient, as well as great product warranties.
You can get the Reverse Cycle range, with options from 7.1kW to 16.7kW, as well as the 20kW Reverse Cycle range, the 24kW Reverse Cycle Range, and the Geoflo range.

A multi-head air conditioning set-up is when you have multiple indoor split system units powered by a single outdoor unit. Rinnai’s multi-head wall-mounted split systems range from 2.5kW up to 8.0kW depending on the system that you select.
Some of the features you can enjoy when you choose Rinnai’s Multi Wall Mounted range include Super Fine Filters, convenient Wi-Fi Controls, as well as heating and cooling in a single unit!
As well as wall-mounted units, Rinnai also offers Multi Slim Ducted systems. With these systems, the indoor unit is recessed inside a ceiling cavity or bulkhead, showing only slim ducts inside the home. These systems include features like DC inverters and timers, but no Wi-Fi capability.
There’s a reason why so many households choose evaporative cooling in Melbourne. Evaporative air conditioners offer natural, fresh cooling that’s powered by water and the process of evaporation. These systems are incredibly environmentally friendly and energy efficient. With low power consumption, they offer minimal energy costs and the lowest carbon footprint of any system.
Evaporative cooling is not as effective in high humidity, which is why it isn’t really used by our northern neighbours in Queensland and other highly humid climates. However, here in Melbourne, evaporative coolers get the job done most days of the year.
Rinnai-branded evaporative cooling systems are known as the Evap Cooling Series, and they’re actually only available in Western Australia and South Australia. However, Brivis is a Rinnai brand, and in other parts of the country – such as here in Melbourne – you can buy evaporative coolers under the Brivis name.
Rinnai’s Brivis evaporative coolers come in a range of colours, designs and profiles and feature water-saving management systems, self-cleaning water pumps, efficient cooling pads, and mechanical seals to prevent drafts from entering the home during winter when the system is not in use.

Rinnai Japan Corporation is headquartered in Nagoya, the capital of Japan’s Aichi Prefecture. However, Rinnai has local manufacturing plants in locations around the world. Many of the products supplied by Rinnai Australia are manufactured partly or wholly in Rinnai’s three Australian manufacturing plants – two in Victoria and one in South Australia.
Founded in 1920 in Nagoya, Japan, engineers Kanekichi Hayashi and Hidejiro Naito first conceived of Rinnai more than 100 years ago!
Rinnai Australia was established in 1971, meaning Australians have been enjoying Rinnai products for more than 50 years!
While Rinnai first made its name in Australia supplying water heaters, you can rely on the heating and cooling range available from the brand. From Rinnai ducted reverse cycle air conditioning to split systems and evaporative coolers (available through Brivis in Victoria), this brand offers options for every household at a variety of price points.
Rinnai balances heating and cooling capacity with energy efficiency and intelligent features. So, if you’re wondering if Rinnai is worth the money or if it is a good brand, we can happily tell you that Rinnai is an option worth considering for your heating and cooling needs.
The Rinnai range is made with durability and longevity in mind, and you can expect your air conditioner to last 10 years or more. Of course, the lifespan of your system will also come down to how you use it and the type of system you choose. For example, if treated correctly, a ducted cooling unit will last longer on average than a split system. Regular servicing and repair are also important to extend the life of your Rinnai system beyond 10 years. You can turn to Australian Climate Systems for Rinnai air conditioner repair and services in Melbourne.
Many of Rinnai’s heating and cooling systems feature optional Wi-Fi Control via a mobile app. This will allow you to control your Rinnai air conditioning from wherever you have a Wi-Fi connection. You can turn your air conditioner on before you leave the office or switch it off remotely if you forget to do so before leaving home. Wi-Fi compatibility offers not just convenience but also increased comfort and opportunities for added control and energy saving. It’s well worth considering Wi-Fi-enabled systems when shopping for your next air conditioner.
Many people ask if Rinnai is a better brand than LG, if Daikin is better than Panasonic or if Brand X is better than Brand Y. Ultimately, finding the best air conditioning brand and the perfect solution for you will come down to your needs, your budget, the features of your property, and the other factors discussed at the top of this article. An expert in heating and cooling can help you find the best option for your needs.
