Like the features, ease of programming temp and vacation mode. Just got product. Water heats much better than old heater. January 22, 2015
This heater is much more efficient than my old one with the Smart Cycle I am a do it yourselfer, and it was very easy to install and wire in my existing electrical box. I spent less than 10 minutes on the installation from out of the box to having hot water. January 21, 2015
goo0d product good water heater easy to install should put a better drain valve on it though. other than that works well January 21, 2015
Very happy with product. I purchased this water heater because we purchased the same water heater 10 years ago and were very pleased, so we purchased another. January 20, 2015
Easy install The unit was easy to install - took about 2hours to get the old one out and the new one in. January 19, 2015
Great value and reliability I am a 30 year retired commercial airline technician and do HVAC work on the side. Working on airliners tends to make one pretty OCD when it comes to everything mechanical. I also know a good product when I see it. I installed one of these for my son and daughter-in-law about one and a half years ago. It has performed perfectly. So when my water heater expired, I bought another one for myself. The Energy Smart feature works much more precisely than a standard thermostat equipped model. It actually saves you $$$. I highly recommend it. January 19, 2015
Product has been great Have had this product for over 3 years, maybe longer. It has worked great. I would not be on this site, but I have miss place my manual and cant remember how to unlock the controls. I would recommend this product to anyone. It will shut down tomorrow :) I installed it myself. Had a problem with power company so I do not know if it help on the power bill January 19, 2015
easy installation the whirlpool unit I replaced lasted 13 years. I hope this one will do the same January 19, 2015
This product has great and easy to use features. This product was easy to install. This product is low cost and low maintenance. This product also lowered my monthly electric bill. January 17, 2015
Goog Product Digital control is very nice, gives clear indication of the temperature setting. I am using the Energy Saver setting but the manual is not very clear as to what this setting actually does. With a digital control it would be a nice enhancement to include a timer to set temp by time of day. January 15, 2015
