Rheem RTE 13 Electric Tankless Water Heater, 4 GPM | Review

Prime Features of Rheem RTE 13

1.     Space-saving model

One of the most common problems associated with water heaters is that it is huge and occupies a lot of space. Rheem RTE 13 breaks this dogma about water heaters with its sleek and compact structure. The tankless water heater fits in comfortably to any available space. People who do not want to clutter their bathroom space with large, gigantic water heaters should opt for this model. The product dimension measures at 7.2 x 7.2 x 7.2 inches and weighs only about 7.8 pounds.

The compact nature of the appliance makes it ideal to be used along with other appliances in the house. Rheem RTE 13 serves multiple purposes and is best for regular use.

2.     Provides Hot Water Instantly

Traditional water heater comes with a tank that stores and heats the water. This is not the case with Rheem RTE 13 as it does not have a tank inside and there is no option to store the water and then heat it. In this case, the water is not stored inside a tank for it to get heated. You simply need to switch on the appliance so that the water passes through the heating components found inside the tank. It only takes about a few seconds for you to get steaming, hot water come out of the pipe.

As soon as the system is switched off, the temperature drops and the heating process stops. No electricity is consumed after that. You can imagine how much of money you can save by using such a simple and efficient system. The water heater model is capable of heating 4.4 gallons of water per minute and promises consumers with constant supply of hot water to support regular household needs. You will never run out of hot water and the best part is that you get it instantly as and when you need.

3.     Simple Installation

Yet another major attraction of Rheem RTE 13 is its simple and easy installation process. Many people get apprehended by the thought of installing a heating system on their own but Rheem RTE 13 brings forth a completely different picture about installation. It does not require you to assemble parts as it comes as a single unit. All you need to do is to mount the appliance over the wall and connect the pipes. Although, it is easy to install the best thing to do would be to seek professional help in this case as warranties are available to those consumers who have got the heater installed with the help of a technician.

Disadvantages of the product:

The product has got some cons as well. Rheem RTE 13 requires buying some additional components to make the system complete and to better the overall functioning of the appliance. This could cost you more than you had expected. It also needs using a 60amp circuit breaker and some extra wiring. Though the product has these shortcomings, it clearly scores in the functionality front.
