Water Heater Specifics

Leave blank
Pros
  • Rheem has the lowest failure rate of any water heater we have ever seen in the So-Cal area.
  • Rheem offers two anode rods inside its 10 year tank. This adds significant life to the water heater.
  • These professional grade water heaters are significantly better than what you will find at Home Depot, Lowes or any other retail outlet.
  • Professional grade units are meant to be serviced over time and be repairable. Units available at Home Depot are meant to be thrown away.
  • Both Rheem and Bradford White water heaters are contractor grade water heaters. They are only available to licensed plumber.
  • Rheem offers a time tested thermostat that has an extremely low failure rate.
  • I personally like the cosmetic appearance of Bradford White water heaters.

Cons

  • Bradford White is prone to leaking tanks between years 5-9.
  • Bradford White repair costs are significantly higher than Rheem. This is due to the thermostat and safety devices Bradford uses.
  • Bradford White only offers one anode in the 10 year tank.
  • Watch videos above to get more details.

Info

  • Based on what we see in the field day in and day out these are our favorite two water heater brands.
  • My personal choice would be Rheem because they last longer and have lower repair costs than Bradford White.
  • Watch the videos above to get an in depth look at the water heaters we offer and the components that attach to them.

Pros and Cons of a Tankless Water Heater

Pros

• Save $175 to $275 per year by purchasing a tankless water heater. $2100 – $3300 over 12 years.

• They come with a 12 year warranty.

• Tankless water heaters can add value to your home and save you money each month.

• There are rebates through some utility companies.

• Endless hot water. This could be really beneficial for households that all shower at similar times.

• Quality tankless water heaters can last 10 years longer than a traditional storage tank water heater.

• They take up less space and can be used in an outdoor environment. This is good if you have a small house or need extra storage space.

• They are only using energy when you open a faucet.

•If you want to move your water heater to a different location, tankless water heaters are a great option.

• Most units have a remote control unit to help you control hot water usage and availability.


Cons

• Your natural gas line may need to be refitted to accommodate the additional gas demands of your tankless water heater. Gas line work is time consuming and expensive.

• Tankless water heaters need to be serviced yearly to prevent failure and maintain efficiency. Installing a water conditioner or de-scale filter on your tankless water heater will reduce annual service costs.

• Electric models may need an additional circuit – This option is not really a financially feasible option. They are unreliable and your house will need to be rewired to accommodate the massive amount of electricity they need. We do not install or service electric tankless water heaters.

• Tankless water heaters need to have electricity in addition to gas. We may need to subcontract an electrician to install a new electrical outlet near the tankless unit. This may increase the cost of installation.
