Great Price value I like the electronic pilot. energy star rating. Good price value July 16, 2014
So far so good after installation issue Product was recently installed and appears to be functioning as expected. Did run into an issue with the height of the power exhaust. My old water heater (same size/capacity) did not have the powered exhaust flap and was slightly lower in overall height. The increased height with this model created a pitch issue between the heater and the chimney. The plumber had to seriously rework the venting to achieve the required pitch. Probably not an issue if you have plenty of pitch but if you have the minimum pitch now, you may run into an issue. As far as the unit itself, seems to be operating as expected. One other note is that it does require 110V which requires an outlet nearby. July 15, 2014
A High Quality Heater by a Quality Name company Impresive quality. Bought it for the 12-year warranty, to me , it's worth the additional cost to rest easy for 12-years vs less. I wanted a "simple' hot water heater but Lowes does not stock-- 14-days to deliver the $100less and more practical model .Installation was very easy. The technology (= more things to fail) is over-the-top on this hot water heater: 1)Air Filter at the base, which requires maintainence, it's very easy to get to but requires occassional cleaning ( ugh, who's got the time! if you do forget to claen it, see #4) 2) Flamable Vapor Sensor ---nice, but really? 3) Electric Exhaust Damper- again, a bit much. 4)Temperature Control System: has a "status"/ self diagnostic feature --there are "16" fault codes. Enough with putting computers on hot water tanks. Also, it looks beautiful, not your standard white finish----but it's hidden in my basement. July 13, 2014
VERY HIGHLY RATED ON INTERNET RESEARCH GOOD FEATURE,S HOWEVER I FOUND INSTALLATION TO BE A BIT UNFRIENDLY. I HAVE INSTALLED SEVERAL WATER HEATERS IN THE PAST, MUCH EASIER AND FASTER. EXAMPLE... THERE WERE NO FITTINGS TO CONNECT THE WATER LINES TO , I HAD TO PURCHASE THEM SEPARATELY. THE GAS LINE INLET IS NOT A STANDARD ITEM, THE STORE THAT HAD A COMPLETE KIT TO CONNECT A GAS LINE TO A WATER HEATER AGAIN I HAD TO PURCHASE A FITTING TO CONNECT TO THE GAS INLET IN ORDER TO USE THE KIT PURCHASED. I HAD TO INSTALL A DEDICATED OUTLET TO PLUG THE UNIT INTO. I THINK THAT IF YOUR GOING TO PAY $750.00 FOR A WATER HEATER IT SHOULD INCLUDE WATER LINE CONNECTORS STICKING OUT OF THE TOP OF THE UNIT TO EASE INSTALLATION. July 7, 2014
Great features and easy to install, plus it looks great! this was an easy installation, and it fits nicely. June 30, 2014
Reduced water pressure after insallation We have had less water pressure since it was installed. Also, this style uses a little more gas than average fir its type. It is quieter than my old water heater. It looks like it is going to be hard to take off and put back on the air filter. June 22, 2014
Energy efficient, easily swapped out for old water heater Just installed this so have only a few days experience. Worked through Lowe's and there agent 1-Call Plumbing. The install was an emergency since we had out of town guests and both businesses were VERY supportive in getting the job done quickly. Compared to our old Kenmore (which was also energy efficient but failed twice in 7 years, this Whirlpool seems to heat water faster and hold the water temperature at temperature for a longer period of time. Cannot comment on reliability or a lowered energy bill since we just made the purchase BUT the data look impressive and this model does have energy efficient features like a flu that closes when not in use and extra insulation.

my water is hot This product has been installed for approx two months. I still have plenty of hot water. Initial purchase price is a little more than other 12 year heaters, but it qualified for xcel energy $100 rebate because of the e-star rating. It had the best efficiency rating of any gas heater without making the jump to forced induction and paying much more. June 17, 2014
Features Really like the energy star rating. Hope to see some reduction on the gas bill. Like the warranty. Operates much quieter then other water heaters we have had. June 8, 2014
good A little difficult to install due to having to fit pipes, but I think that comes with any water heater. Must have an electrical outlet close by. Been using for 2 months without any problems. I hope to get at least the full 12 year warranty out of it. May 31, 2014
