Features and Benefits
Energy saving and compact

There are few shortfalls you are going to witness while using Rheem RTGH- 84DVLN but in no way does this diminish the high efficiency of the unit.
A bit expensive
When you add up the cost of purchasing the heater and the cost of hiring a professional operator, buying a brass valve kit for future flushing of the heater and that of a concentric vent the total cost tends to be a bit high.
The unit emits a drone sound as the fan within the unit. This sound could be irritating and annoying if you have a sensitive ear.
Also it takes time for heated water to reach the outlet faucet. Most of the time you are through with chores such as washing of hands before the water comes in.
Time consuming installation process
Equally important is the fact that installing the unit is time consuming. It takes a professional plumber 8 solid hours and a full whole day for the DIY man.
Another contributing factor to this is the fact that you need a ¾ gas lines against the ½ gas line which is use in most homes. In order to get the best from your heater you need to re wire the gas lines with the ¾.
Going by the high innovative features built into Rheem RTGH-84DVLN tankless water, the overwhelming five stars rating from satisfied users, its efficiency in supplying endless streams of hot water to multiple outlets, it is recommended to large sized family with high demand for water.
