Rheem Water Heater Reviews

Rheem is a trusted name in appliances and differs from many other manufacturers in that it offers a large variety of both tankless and tank water heaters. It also has a wide offering of sizes in both of those categories.

Rheem has more large tankless heaters than many other manufacturers, but it also can sell you a small unit if that is what you prefer. The tankless heaters draw excellent reviews overall, and they come in both gas and electric versions. They can cost from $200 to $1400 depending on how much water you need to heat.

In the standard water heater category, Rheem offers gas and electric models with some coming in a high-efficiency version as well. The gas models have drawn high marks for savings that customers experience on their bills and the rapid heating time to produce hot water.

Ease of installation has also been noted by many users, most of whom give Rheem a 5-star rating. Rheem’s heaters also draw kudos for their quiet operation, an important factor to many users.

One criticism that does surface from time to time with Rheem products is the company’s lack of customer service if there is a problem.
