An efficient water heater can save you money, and can also add value to your home. Do you need a small gas-powered water heater?  An electric water heater? A tankless water heater?  Rheem makes water heaters of all kinds, and we install water heaters in Windsor, Greeley, Garden City, Evans, LaSalle, Kelim, Johnstown, Milliken, Lucerne, Eaton, Severance and Timnath.

Gas Water Heaters

rheem gas water heaterGas water heaters are the most popular kind you will find in the U.S.  They work on the simple principle that heat rises, and are basically  large water-filled tanks that have a heating mechanism attached. They come in different sized tanks; we can help you choose the size that’s best for your home and your family’s needs.

Rheem currently has several lines of gas water heater available in five series, each of which have their own standout features. The basic gas water heater is your most affordable option upfront, although it will offer the least in energy savings after installation. Choose an Energy Star Gas Water Heater with electric ignition pilot light and better insulation, and you will enjoy a higher level of energy savings.

Here are a sample of Rheem water heaters, from the most basic Performance line to the environmentally friendly Performance Platinum and Professional Prestige lines.

PERFORMANCE LINE

  • Tank sizes from 29 to 98 gallons
  • These Performance units are quieter and lower-maintenance than most comparable products

PERFORMANCE PLUS LINE

  • From .58 to .65 UEF

Compact, and designed to give you ultimate control over your water temperature, the tankless Rheem water heater heats water on demand. That means there’s no storage tank where gallons and gallons of water are being heated and held at temperature for your use. Water is quickly heated every time you need it, and only then. Even the standard model delivers an energy efficiency rating of over 99%, which can add up to quite a savings over the life of the water heater. Available in several models, each offers different capabilities and levels of efficiency. A tankless water heater is the most energy-efficient option in gas-powered water heaters.
 
 

Electric Water Heaters

rheem electric water heaterElectric water heaters come with both benefits and downsides. They are well-suited to smaller installation space, because they don’t need the exhaust release pipe that a gas unit requires. They are also the most efficient water heaters. The tanks come in several sizes, from small to large. Some are designed for immediate use, some for long-term. High-efficiency electric tank water heaters are shielded with better insulation to provide additional savings on you power bill. However, because your water heater is in nearly constant demand, it can pull a lot of power. Rheem electric water heaters are quality-built to work at top efficiency, which can help to keep down your power bill.

More efficient than gas, it’s no surprise that Rheem electric heaters have more series than Rheem gas heaters. These are among the best on the market, and many are sized for smaller homes. All electric models have Low NOx or better emissions, leak detection, and are recirculation pump compatible.
