40 Gallon Electric Water Heater - ES40R92-45D
PROBLEMS FROM THE START.
PRODUCT INSTALLED PROFESSIONALY, 2 DAYS IN RECIEVING E02 FAILURE CODE. RESET AS OWNERS MANUEL SUGGESTED, 3 TIMES.
WATER REACHING TEMPS OF 160 . CALLED TECH SUPPORT AND THEY PROVIDED ME WITH NUMBERS TO TRY REPLACEMENT PARTS. IT WOULD BE UP TO ME TO PAY TO HAVE THEM REPLACED. . ALREADY HAVING TO PAY WAY TO MUCH FOR A DEFECTIVE ITEM AND DO NOT KNOW IT THIS WILL FIX IT.
I SHOULD HAVE BEEN A PLUMBER, AT 96 DOLLARS AN HOUR I COULD DO PRETTY WELL...

Love the modern temp control
I'm 61 years old, so I've had a few water heaters. The modern digital temp control is the way to go. So much easier than trying to coordinate separate thermostats. It makes changing the temp super easy. It also has a vacation setting that keeps it at 60 degrees, which is nice if you live in the north.
I was checking for replacement anode rods and so far they are a little hard to find. It would help if the manual stated which metal the stock rods are made of...zinc, magnesium, or aluminum.

Good Value for the Money
My closet was a little restrictive unfortunately from a size standpoint, so I was limited in what I could purchase. But, this water heater does a great job

Best balance of price and product
I shopped around to get the best deal for a 40 gallon model as I could. What sold me on this one was the Energy Smart mode, and the possibility to connect it to my home automation through the SmartPort later on. I almost sprung for the 12 year model (and that one looks much more slick), but I couldn't justify the extra $80 or so for an additional inch of insulation, but the exact same control panel and features otherwise. This 9 year model is the best balance if you're looking for a new electric water heater with the latest energy-efficient features.

Great Value Great Product
It only takes about 5 minutes to understand and use the LCD Control Panel. I don't know how it could possibly be more user friendly. You set the temperature, you lock the temperature, go use the hot water! This turned out to be the easiest and SMARTEST decision I have made for major appliance replacement.

Started heating right away and it was great taking a hot shower. Water heater looks great and is easy to set temp and the temp modes.
