With no standing pilot light and no tank, the latest Rheem water heater comes in two models, the RTG-42PV and the RTG-74. Designed to not only produce hot water instantly, but to save money on energy costs, these two Rheem water heater units are sure to be a consumer hit.
Marketed under the name of “Pronto”, each of these Rheem water heater units instantly produce a continual supply of heated water, but only upon demand. This eliminates the need for the 40 or 50 gallons of water that must be continually heated by a pilot light with standard water heaters.
The smaller version of these newest Rheem tankless water heater units, the RTG-42PV - called the Pronto! 4.2 Tankless on the company Web site (www.Rheem.com) - delivers 100 to 140-degree water at a rate of up to four gallons per minute. Only the minimum amount of natural or LP gas is necessary, too, to get this amount and temperature of water at a moment’s notice. This unit also features a compact, space-saving design that makes it easy and convenient to install without needing a space any larger that its 22 1/4″ x 13 3/4″ x 5 1/8″ dimensions.
The other new Rheem water heater boasts a larger amount of hot water provided on demand. It supplies up to 7.4 gallons at the same temperatures as above. This Rheem water heater features only slightly larger dimensions: 24″x12 2/3″x 9 1/2″.
Easy-to-understand digital displays on these Rheem water heater units make both reading them and setting the temperature to your desired level of hotness simpler and easier than on standard water heaters. And both Rheem water heater units come with a 10-year warranty for residential use on the heat exchangers and a warranty for three years on any part.
Since the 1930s, the Rheem water heater has set the standard for the best in water heater quality. Now, as the leading manufacturer of water heaters in North America, Rheem continues to produce what consumers need to save space as well as energy. If you’re in the market for a new hot water heater, you can ask any professional, and they’ll most likely tell you - “Get a Rheem”.
