Rheem Water Heater Installation
The Rheem product range extends to gas water heaters, electric water heaters and tankless water heaters.
How do I know if I need a new water heater?
There are several signs that may indicate your water heater might be failing: water buildup in or around your water heater, water-quality issues, or the unit no longer provides the same temperature or duration of hot water as it did in the past. An in-home inspection can determine whether or not you need to install a new water heater.
What factors should I consider when replacing a water heater?
Your installer will help you consider the right fuel source (gas or electric), storage capacity (30 to 80 gallons available), tank type (tank or tankless), and warranty (The Home Depot offers 6, 9, and 12-year warranties).
What is the difference between gas and electric water heaters?
Gas water heaters usually cost less to operate, but are slightly more expensive upfront and less efficient overall. On the other hand, electric water heaters cost more to operate, but are more efficient and offer higher energy-factor ratings.
How long can I expect my new water heater to last?
The Home Depot sells water heaters and, depending on what model you purchase, some come with a manufacturer's warranty. Please reference the product materials that came with your unit.
Can I install a water heater myself?
It is recommended that you hire a licensed, professional to install your water heater. Improper installation of a water heater could cause catastrophic damage or injury if the unit is not installed properly. Be sure to use a trained professional by scheduling an in-home inspection.
