Tankless gas units are great for homes with busy families – they allow you to have enough hot water to load the laundry, start the dishes, bathe the kids and still have enough to enjoy a shower! They are also great for homes with luxury bathrooms and vacation homes. Tankless electric units are perfect for under-the-counter bathroom/kitchen sinks, home remodels/additions, and detached buildings [workshops, barns, etc].
Regular gas water heaters still have their advantages. Rheem’s gas systems have a one-of-a-kind air/fuel shut-off device that offers double protection. Some of them are maintenance-free with superior air filtration, preventing the flame arrestor from becoming clogged by lint, dust, and oil. They are easy to light – no matches required. These systems are far more energy-efficient than older versions, offering you more hot water at a low operating cost. These also have a longer life than previous versions. Their patented magnesium anode rod design incorporates a special resistor that protects the tank from rust.
