Rheem Water Heater Wins 2012 Gold Dealer Design Award

2012 25-07

Rheem has been honored with a Gold Dealer Design Award in the Residential Equipment category for the XR90 Extreme Recovery Gas Water Heater.

Sponsored by The Air Conditioning, Heating & Refrigeration (ACHR) News magazine, the Dealer Design Awards recognize contractor-oriented products with features that assist in installation, maintenance and service of installed products to the HVACR industry. This year, the awards received more than 80 product nominations. Thirty-nine products were selected as winners of a Gold, Silver or Bronze awards. The awards feature 14 product categories and only one Gold winner is recognized in each category.

The 29-gallon Rheem XR90 Extreme Recovery Gas Water Heater delivers hot water faster— and more efficiently—than a standard 50-gallon gas water heater. This ENERGY STAR® -qualified unit debuted in July 2011, and it has a first hour rating (FHR) of 90 gallons—meaning homeowners get three times the amount of hot water in an hour than what the tank actually holds. Plus, it costs 17 percent less to operate annually than a standard 50-gallon gas water heater, based on U.S. Department of Energy annual operating cost figures. The Rheem XR90 also earned an AHR Expo Innovation Award in January 2012.
