looking for the best water heater to replace our 80 gallon Rheem. 26 yrs. old
My plumber is retired but I still call him for advice. He mentioned a lot of plumbers are installing Bradford White and he still likes Rheem. We have an 80 gal. electric water heater. We are also considering a smaller tank to save energy. We are a 3 person family but the house has two full baths. Never run out of hot water. 2450 sq. ft all on one level. However our tank is in the basement utility room. We are also considering a move out of state so may sell the house in the next 12 months. Any thoughts??
I like rheem and I've replaced a handful of Bradford's with premature tank failure (tank leaked after 6 years or so) but Bradford does have an excellent warranty. I personally like AO smith myself, I've had good luck with them. But each to their own
If you don't learn something new everyday at work, it's not even worth going.
