80 Gallon Electric Water Heater - ES80H123-45D 4.6 5 198 198
This water heater seems to be of very good quality This heater is replacing a 50 gal unit that was in my house for 10 years. Installation was simple and instructions are very good. No issues at all. One suggestion. Place a wiring block for customers to wire rather than twisting and capping. September 22, 2014
So far has done all it claimed to Purchased at Lowes. I highly recommend their professional installation. Approx. 2 1/2 hours to install including draining of old one and haul away. Three hours later and 80 gals of hot water ready to use. Easy to use controls. September 17, 2014
Simple and Easy This water heater was very simple to install, I did it myself, and the start up was so simple. Very easy to get set up and running, and so far no issues at all. I replaced a 15 year old Whirlpool 50 gallon water heater, it finally gave up on me. So, I am hoping this new Whirlpool lasts that long! September 17, 2014
plenty of hot water Replaced an 11 year old, water heater that was going bad . had a light leak decided to replace. this water heater works just great so far. you can set it on energy smart mode, mine is set at 130 degree. it heats water very fast it seems, especially compared to my old water heater . its bigger than my old 80 gallon water heater . because this one has 3 inches of insulation September 10, 2014
Easy install and best value We shopped around after our water heater broke and found this product to be best value for the money. Price was fair and reasonable based on comparable market product (80-gal) and warranties. Easy to install, easy to operate and program. It has many features including the ability to run manually if electronics fail. Had hot water again after an hour or so. Good product. September 7, 2014
LIKE THE WARRANTY just installed and it was very easy, so far no problems August 30, 2014
Let you know in 12 years Initial product review and use are great. Construction quality seems to be very good. The WH is larger than my old one with same capacity - make sure it will fit through any doors and such to get to your installation location. Definitely takes two people to horse into position. Less noise than old unit. August 26, 2014
easy easy easy!!!!!1 electric bills were out of control had a 1 year old rheem 50 gallon never enough hot water. did some research found that this Unit would work when needed 1st elect bill cant wait to see if this helps August 17, 2014
too early to tell. just got it installed we like controls. the vacation button is nice . The placement of controls is a little off center after installing. it is hard to see. It is too large for pans that retailers sell . you require this so you need to make them more available. The 80 gallon tank is too large. August 17, 2014
I was quite please with the extras this water heater had to offer. I am not going to write a review until I have used the water heater for a month. Then I will let you know if I like it or not. I hope it lowers my electric bill. I do like the stream line look of the heater. August 13, 2014
