Pleased overall Easy swap for previous gas water heater; easy install. Unit operates differently in that burner kicks on promptly when hot water is drawn from heater. We have found that this actually is a plus as it seems to help the heater keep up with demand better and the heater doesn't seem to run as long, not having to reheat from a tank full of cold water. Have had the unit in use for 2 1/2 years and overall satisfied with the performance. Our only gripe is the fan noise, though we've become somewhat accustom to it. There are quieter fans made that Whirlpool could have used. October 8, 2013
energy star water heater six negitives ,the unit needs to be plugged in ,so you'll need an outlet close by. it will not heat water when power is out. the fan is somewhat noisy. the digital control is nice but the range could be 100 to 150 not 110 to 160. looks like cleaning / service will be more difficult than a conventional type heater. it also seems to short cycle e.g. going on after drawing only 2 gallons of water.

I like the digital setting It was not that difficult to install. It is in the basement and does make noise like someone is vacuuming but cuts off after a while. It does not take up any more space than our old one. August 8, 2011
