What Is the Rheem Gas Water Heater?

In our Rheem gas water heater review, we?ll look in depth at the Rheem model RTG-64DVLP tankless water heater and see how it measures up against similar units. Tankless water heaters are unique and their popularity is exploding.

A majority of people in the United States associate water heaters with large tanks of hot water taking up space in a basement or closet. This water heater keeps water hot and ready for use whenever it?s needed. The Rheem gas water heater heats water on demand, only when you need it, and doesn?t store water.

The Rheem tankless water heater responds instantly when hot water is requested. The heater uses either electricity or gas to power its heater. They?re powerful heaters and instantly heat water as it passes through the unit. As with a conventional water heater, it directly relates hot water delivery time to the distance between the heater and faucet.

A reason for their popularity is their efficiency. A tankless water heater turns on only when a hot water faucet is opened, and turns off when it?s closed. Compare that to storing and heating hot water regardless if it?s needed. Tankless water heaters don?t waste energy, save money, and you?ll always have a never-ending supply of hot water.

The Rheem RTG series which includes the model in our Rheem gas water heater review is a direct vent propane style water heater. They feature ultra-low NOx (oxides of nitrogen) which is an atmospheric pollutant.
