Easy to use I replaced a Whirlpool energy star electric water heater that had a 12 year warranty with this compatible model. The original water heater was 6 years old. It was an even exchanged. I was surprised that after 6 years it had to be replaced but the plumber said it was completely rusted inside. October 19, 2014
design and quality of build excellent... The choice to buy was made by my wife based on research to the extreme. We look for quality products that will be serviceable for the long haul. Everything about the hot water heater selected was beyond our expectations, and there were no surprises. Installation was straight forward with respect to the water heater itself, with the only "glitch" involving a slight mod to the plumbing of the house, and in no way was the fault of the water heater. All aspects of the install of the unit itself and our surprise at the over the top quality of the water heater were pleasant experiences. The unit is EXTREMELY QUIET, and it even looks great. Many thanks... October 19, 2014
The price is right compared to propane gas heater.Very efficient. I hope to save money using an electric heater. in lieu of a propane gas hater. October 14, 2014
The product has great features I like the ease of installation and easy to adjust settings of water temperature. Also the ease of setting the vacation mode as our previous heater did not allow for that. October 13, 2014
Great Service and Value I own my own home and renal properties. This is my second water heater same model exactly. I am so pleased it is hard to say everything in a few words. This is a water heater that is worth the value and saves money. I love it and am very happy with the service. The plumber that installed it thought it was easy to install and was amazed at how it operates. October 5, 2014
This product is solid and attractive. We have only had it for two days, so far it is doing its job of heating our water. We like the digital temp feature and the quiet of the unit. Installation was very quick and easy for the technician and cleanup not messy. We like the locking temp mode and easy turn off. A very nice unit with a longer warranty than the previous unit had.
