While the easiest solution is usually to replace like kind for like kind, it has likely been many years since your current water heater was installed and Rheem has made many advancements in water heating performance and efficiency over the years. We encourage you to take the time to find the best hot water solution for your family and needs by using our guide below.

Find Your Water Heater Fuel Type
It is typically easiest and most cost effective to replace your current water heater with a water heater that uses the same fuel. However, it is possible in many cases to change your water heater fuel source to accommodate a different water heater type. Often times there are long-term savings realized by switching to a water heater that uses a more efficient fuel type. Discuss this with your Independent Rheem Contractor to learn more about what fuel types are available to your home.
