Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 8 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Back in hot water! Of course the old water heater decided to go on holiday at the start of the Labor Day weekend. My options were limited, but this higher-cost model was offset by the power company's rebate. It's a bit early to see any trends, but we are using about 25% fewer therms compared to the same months of last year. I like that it does not require a blanket and that the pilot is controlled electronically. November 13, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Deal Unfortunately, after 16 years of great service my hot water heater failed. I purchased my new hot water heater with a 12-year warranty and a high efficiency rating. The rating was so good that it qualified for PG&E's $200 rebate program. At the end of the day the cost of the hot water heater ended up being less than the cost of those with a far shorter warranty. By the way, I received my $200 check from PG&E about 4 days ago.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good Buy, Great Rebate from PG Replacing a 17 year old A.O. Smith that only had a 3 year warranty. We hope this lasts as long. $200 rebate from PG November 6, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very good product The water is getting hot much faster and more efficient. On top of that, we got a $200 rebate from PG&E. Overall a very good buy. September 2, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A nice Christmas gift Our old water heater started leaking on Christmas eve morning. That's something that I didn't plan on doing that day but that gave me a chance to replace it before Christmas. After removing the old one I went to the HD web site to see what kind of water heaters were available. I found a 50 gal. Rheem water heater with a 12 year warranty that was being sold for $100 off for $628. This is a "Energy Star" and I guess that's good. I didn't think I would be spending that much but I didn't want to get something that wasn't going to last. The idea of not having hot water was something I didn't face again soon. This new water heater works great. I love long hot showers and I haven't run out of hot water yet. There is no pilot to light with a match - it's electric and I just needed to plug in the cord to the nearby outlet. This was a pretty straight forward installation with connecting new supply lines and re-attaching the old vent pipe but I did need help to lift this water heater. This thing is heavy and I needed my neighbor's help to left on to the wooden platform in the garage. January 27, 2015
