Rheem Electric Hot Water Systems
Available in a wide range of shapes and sizes, Rheem Electric Hot Water Systems are built tough to survive the harsh Australian conditions and feature efficient designs to provide you with a reliable source of hot water for years to come. Considering that 45 per cent of Australian households rely on electric systems, these hot water solutions play a large part of Rheem’s local trade.
Modern Rheem hot water systems are crafted from stainless steel and protected by a patented commercial-grade ultra-enamel that provides a tougher, longer-lasting finish to prolong the life of your water heater. They are incredibly easy to install thanks to their standard fittings so a plumber can switch out the old system with relative ease. Rheem products are competitively priced and electrical systems are economical to run when taking advantage of overnight off-peak tariffs.
Homes and businesses can take advantage of compact and large-scale solutions scaling to over 400 litres in capacity. So it’s time you stopped running out of hot water. Call us today!
Rheem Continuous Flow Gas Systems
By utilising the economy of a natural gas Rheem Continuous Flow system, you can rest easy knowing that your sleek new heater delivers instant hot water that never runs out. It sounds like a dream come true, and that’s because it is. A continuous flow of hot water means you can shower and bathe comfortably at any time of day, and even during blackouts.
Gas continuous flow hot water requires a much more compact tank-less unit that does a better job of suiting the aesthetics of modern homes. Continuous flow is also more eco-friendly and incredibly efficient with Rheem systems receiving a 6-Star energy rating. Alternatively, natural gas can be used to heat a tank like electric water heating but is less efficient than continuous flow.
Jim’s can provide advice on what’s the right size system for you and your home, and then one of our qualified technicians will take care of the rest. 48 per cent of Aussies already use natural gas, so why don’t you contact us for an installation quote or a service on your existing gas hot water system?
Rheem Solar Hot Water
Rheem solar systems can heat your water while drastically cutting carbon emissions and providing you with massive energy savings benefits. Roof-mounted solar collectors absorb the sun’s energy and transfer the heat to water stored in a tank. By using solar over electric, one can save up to 65 per cent of a home’s heating consumption.
Rheem solar systems are lightweight and durable. They feature the latest in heat exchange technology that prevents freezing and overheating during extremes.
The initial costs associated with installation are quickly outweighed by the savings and potential rewards of your state and energy providers’ buyback scheme. If your solar collectors generate more energy than you can use, the excess can be exported back into the network for savings on future rates. Find out how you can contribute to a sustainable future by calling Jim’s Plumbing.
Rheem Heat Pump Hot Water
Heat pump technology uses refrigerant vapour compression technology to absorb heat in the air and directs it to a standard water heater. This process continues only until the tank water is heated, using no unnecessary energy. Rheem heat pumps can use the same plumbing and electrical connections as an electric water heater, making it an ideal upgrade from a standard hot water source.
Rheem Heat Pumps are extremely energy efficient, and owners can benefit from government rebate programs. The kicker is that heat pumps are more efficient during the summer and will produce hot water at a slower rate through colder months.
How Long Does a Rheem Hot Water Heater Last?
On average, a well-maintained hot water heater will carry a life expectancy of 10 years. Some brands will specify 8-12 years or 5-15, but 10 years is closer to the fact.
Of course, hot water heaters can operate longer than a decade, and occasionally they can fail sooner. It all depends on a series of factors, including usage, environment and the frequency of service. Should anything go wrong early on, Rheem offers lengthy warranties on all of its hot water systems.
