Tankless water heaters are the new way of getting hot water in your home in the cheapest and most efficient way, and the Rheem 22V40F1 Natural Gas Water Heater, 40 Gallon is one of the models that is remarkably good.
It uses natural gas to heat your water, and once you have the gas in it and you have it on, it will continue to supply you with hot water for a long time without any maintenance. It’s been built with an automatic air/shut off mechanism that is self controlling so that all you have to do is pre-set it.
The cheapest price we could find for this product was on amazon.
Rheem 22V40F1 Natural Gas Water Heater, 40 Gallon Features and Specifications
It comes with a 40 gallon tank for natural gas that’s vapour ignition resistant which means that you don’t have to worry about all the hot vapour that’s accumulating, igniting the gas that runs it.
The Rheem 22V40F1 is pretty easy to maintain despite the fact that it uses natural gas. It has no filter to clean and replacement parts are easy to access from the manufacturer, Rheem, and they are just easy to install. It works on a self cleaning process – the Everkleen patented sediment cleaning system, gets rid of any sediment build-up that might clog it.
You can use it at extremely high altitudes – up to 6,000 ft above sea level, which is a great advantage because at such high altitudes its pretty cold and you need to get all the hot water you want, as soon as you need it.
If you’re wondering about the emissions from the natural gas, it’s designed to dispose of low doses of nitrous oxide as it works which are easily taken into the atmosphere without any harm to the environment. These emissions are within the allowed emission standards for a clean environment.
The biggest design advantage is that it runs off your power system which means that your water heating bills are pretty much out of the picture – water heating happens to be one of the household activities that consumes the most power. If you want to have a rough idea of just how much you will be saving, you only need about $230 to run it every year, and that’s at maximum usage.
The Rheem 22V40F1 also comes in a patented magnesium rod design that protects it from rust, and the pipes are brass plated and well protected from rusting too.
It comes with a warranty that speaks of its quality; Rheem give you the guarantee that it will work for 6 years and should it fail, they will replace it for you or give you replacement parts no questions asked.
Rheem 22V40F1 Natural Gas Water Heater, 40 Gallon Reviews
The first thing you will read from users is that the installation is easy and fast and you get it working right away. They also say that you get really hot water, which is especially useful for those in very high altitudes.
Some people say that they have had it for years – it can last and last without you ever having to touch it, only adding gas as needed. The fact that you don’t need a match to turn it on, but that you just use the special ignitor that is included, also seems to be a big plus for a lot of people.
One common great review you’ll see again and again is the fact that despite having it for years, no part of the Rheem 22V40F1 will rust. A lot of tankless heaters are made of materials that eventually rust because of the continuous vapour production as water is heated, but not the Rheem 22V40F1 Natural Gas Water Heater, 40 Gallon.
Do we recommend it? Yes, by all means we do. The cost savings are more than appealing – if you want to get hot water for less than $300 every year any time you want it and at whatever temperature, the Rheem 22V40F1 is definitely a great buy whether for just ordinary home use, mobile homes, homes that are off the power grid or those that are at very high altitudes.
