Rheem has been in existence since 1920. It is a firm that manufactures in the United States and is recognized as leading supplier in the United States, Canada, Mexico and globally as a top manufacturer of water heaters, air conditioners and heating systems.
Rheem is famous for the engineering and overall quality of its products. Ninety years of experience in the plumbing manufacturing business has positioned them to be innovators that seize new technology that makes for more efficient products at affordable costs. Every product manufactured by them meets and exceeds the industry standards for quality and reliability. In addition, many of its products have received the coveted EnergyStar@ label that means the product meets rigorous efficiency standards established by the United States Department of Energy and The United States Environmental Protection Agency.
Whatever your fuel source or family size, Rheem has a high quality water heater that will efficiently meet your needs. All water heaters have SEER ratings that show they are energy efficient. SEER is shorthand for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating. Devices with higher SEER ratings are more efficient than those with lower ones.
Sometimes property owners are faced with the “repair or replace” decision. If your water heater is older than 15 years it is most likely far less efficient than a new Rheem product. The savings on fuel costs help reduce the payback period. Fifteen years is the expected useful life of a hot water heater, embarking on an expensive repair is usually unwise.
If your unit is under 5 years of age, it is covered by warranty – it should be repaired not replaced. Units between five and 15 years of age require a conversation between the property owner and their plumbing contractor. Efficiencies in operation due to new technologies may make a new Rheem system an attractive alternative to an expensive repair.
