Questions & Answers

how must does it cost to install a electric water heater

Asked by: junior
I was given a price by an HD expert of $!,985.25 including a $388 40 gal. water heater. I respectfully declined. This is called "sticking it to the customer." I'm buying it myself and getting it installed for $350 by another contractor.

I have a 40 gallon Tall 4500 Watts Hot water heater and is hooked on 25Amp circuit Breaker. Is this as per the code and sufficient for the heater to work effeciently?
Asked by: Amin
A water heater of this type is required to be considered a continuous load meaning that the branch circuit needs to be calculated at 125% of the heater's rated ampacity. 4500/240 = 18.75 amps, will work on a 20 amp OCPD but, 18.75*125% = 23.4 amps, requires a 25 or 30 amp circuit.

Does this water heater need gas

Does this water heater need gas
Asked by: Leon
the 4500/4500 watt means it runs on electric.iam sure you could get one that will use gas if that is what you need.but it will not have electric elements. hope this helps.

Performance 50 Gal. Tall 6 Year 4500/4500-Watt Elements Electric Tank Water Heater is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 1792.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from I bought this water heater 3 years ago and was told the life expectancy of this water heater was ... I bought this water heater 3 years ago and was told the life expectancy of this water heater was 10 to 15 years. I am already having problems with it. The hot water starts scalding hot and then turns to cold very quickly. I called Rheem to trouble shoot the problem and they say it is either a thermostat problem or one of the heating elements that has gone bad. They say I should not work on it myself and should call a professional, but last time I had water heater problems, the plumber had told me that by the time you pay for someone to diagnose the problem and repair it, you pretty much are spending the price of a new one, but without getting a brand new water heater with at least 1 year of warranty. Therefore, I am going to have to buy a new water heater after only 3 years of usage. COMPLETELY UNACCEPTABLE! This is a lousy water heater.

So far all has been ok. In this area at this period of time it is the cheapest available. It has a six year warranty which is sufficient. We have extremely hard water and calcium deposits will build to the level of the first element in about that time. Investing in anything too expensive under this circumstance is senseless. Calcium deposits will void most any warranty.

We did the math and determined that 50 Gallons would be adequate. After Home Depot put us in contact with a contractor we were told it would take 5 days before we could get an estimate - 3 days at best. That was not an amount of time that we wanted to be without hot water, so we decided to do the install ourselves. The unit fit well inside of a Chevy Tahoe. I rented a utility dolly to remove the old unit, then installed the new. This unit was dead easy to install. We used a 24 inch plastic water pan and the Sharkbite 3/4 connectors which easily reduced the installation time. The tank filled in 5 minutes and the water was a hot in 15 minutes. It took about 50 minutes to remove the old unit and about 50 minutes to install the new. Plus 20 minutes to fill the tank and heat the water.

It heats up super fast and gives you consistent hot water for way longer than you ever need. It was super easy to install as well and put into operation.

The Rheem 50 gallon tall water heater had all the features that one should find in a replacement water heater, and had all the features that it claimed to have in its specification. It is also built with a high degree of workmanship. These results earn it a four star rating. I reserve five stars for products that deliver more than I expected. However, in an electric water heater I can't imagine getting more than I expected, so four stars is likely to be a top rating. It installed without a serious hitch. The only complaint is that the inlet and outlet fittings had to be tightened more that the recommended amount to seal them at the water heater inlet and outlet. This may have something to do with the plastic parts inside those fittings. On the supply side, where I have copper fittings sweated to the pipes, the fittings sealed with the recommended hand-tight-plus-1/4 turn. Water heat recovery seems as expected, although I haven't timed it.

The first one exact same model lasted just 5 years and 2 months into a 6 year warranty and developed and interior water tank leak that ruined the water heater. That being said Rheem offered $300 off the purchase of this new $455 one. So they stood behind their product way more than I thought they would money off wise with only 10 months left on its warranty. Rheem is a great product in general and I think that other water heater that broke so early in its life might have just been something not normal. I would still recommend this water heater to others. It is a good deal as well price wise.

I have the temperature set to approx. 140 F, yet after it's been shut off for only 2 hours, the temperature drops to around 100 F. My attached garage (where the water heater is placed) is 60-70 degrees. Maybe I should have known: it replaced a 40 gallon water heater, yet the outside dimensions are roughly the same. The old heater could be switched off for many hours (during peak electricity hours) without a noticeable drop in water temp. The insulation on this Rheem must be extremely thin, so be prepared to spend more on electricity with this one. I'll look for another brand when it presumably wears out in 6.5 years.
