      • great water heater price!
      • June 30, 2014

      Their are more efficient models out there but you will pay premium $ for them. But this Rheem has an excellent warranty and is more efficient than our old 16 yr old water heater. I researched several dozens of different water heaters and this by far was the best water heater for price and excellent warranty. This water heater is well insulated, I can touch the sides of water heater and it is cold to touch. Our old water heater we had a thermal blanket around it for efficiently . The new Rheem says do not use a thermal blanket to wrap around water heater. We have had it over a month, and have discovered are water is much hotter than are old water heater and we have it set on lowest setting. Are old water heater had a 8 year warranty.We had it for 16 years before it developed a slow leak. I do have a water softener and a whole house filter which does help extend the life of all your water appliances . So for the warranty,efficiency and price this was a excellent purchase for our home.
