When shopping for water heaters, it can be difficult to know which water heaters are considered good. It really depends on the type of water heater you’re looking for. Today, you can get electric, gas, and tankless water heaters.
Many homes are currently switching to on-demand tankless water heaters, to save both money and also the environment.
There are a lot of new brands within this space, but the most popular established brand for a tankless water heater is Rheem—with Rinnai close behind. That being said, there are so many competing brands of water heater available—and many of them from less established brands—that you might want to explore what’s available in your area.
Gas water heaters need to be reliable, as they’re dealing with gas. A.O. Smith tends to make the best gas water heaters all-around, with Rheem making some decent water heaters as well.
A.O. Smith provides good quality products at a low price. In terms of the least reliability and durability, the brands you want to avoid are going to be American and Kenmore.
If your home doesn’t have a gas line, you need an electric water heater. The best brand of water heater for you is going to be a Rheem, with A.O. Smith coming in a close second.
Rheem provides durable, leak-proof electric water heaters that last a long time. For electric water heaters, you generally want to avoid Westinghouse, Reliance, or Kenmore.
Replacing a water heater is an important decision. Not only do you need to look for price, but you also need to look for reliability and energy-efficiency. If you’re currently thinking of replacing your water heater, you can’t go wrong by contacting Heieck Supply.
