Best Choice Water Heater Reviews
Each year we review the water heaters new to the market to determine which products to offer to our customers. We’ve been installing and repairing water heaters in the Charlotte area for 30 years now, so we take care to only recommend water heaters that we truly believe will deliver both value and performance. The following is our top pick for 2016 for water heaters over all. Read our water heater reviews each year to find out what is performing best.
While we also install tank water heaters (gas, electric and hybrid – see links to our reviews on the best of these at the bottom of this page), we’re fans of tankless water heaters because they pay for themselves very quickly and are the best long term investment. However, we understand that each home has different needs. That's why we review and support many types and models of water heaters.
But now… the winner of 2016!
Best 2016 Tankless Hot Water Heater Review
This year there’s no contest: the best hot water heater (long term value and immediate performer) is the Rinnai Ultra Series Tankless Water Heater. If you have more than two people in your home and are looking for the best investment, we recommend this water heater for the following reasons.
Pays for Itself and Then Some
This water heater is so efficient that it easily pays for itself in energy savings. You get hot water almost instantaneously so no more waiting for the water in the shower to warm up (wasting gallons of water). It uses 40 percent less energy than a 2016 tank water heater, meaning you save money on heating water and water itself.
Tankless water heaters only heat water when you need hot water, which is why it saves so much on heating costs. By installing one of these heaters, you increase the value of your home since it will elevate your Home Energy Rating System Index Score. You will also qualify for energy related rebates and tax credits.
This water heater should last 20+ years – which is almost double the life of a tank water heater.
Get endless supply of hot water (excellent if you have a household of kids, especially teenagers) no matter how many appliances or showers and baths you have running at once.
Great Space Saver
As if this water heater wasn’t great already very small and compact. It can be installed in a closet, garage, attic, crawl space or even outside here in the South.
Good for the Environment
In addition to energy and water savings, this water heater has low emissions and recyclable parts that are easily replaced or fixed without having to take apart or drain a huge tank.
