If you are looking for a new Rheem hot water heater, or require a replacement hot water system and are not sure which model or fuel source would provide the most benefit to your home or office Mr Emergency Plumbing can help.
When it comes to a new or replacement Rheem hot water heater, the team from Mr Emergency are asked many questions – here are just a couple that may help with your decision process;
Q. I currently have a Rheem hot water heater that requires replacing, should I just get the same sized replacement unit?
A. This depends on many factors. The Rheem hot water heater that you currently have may no longer meet your hot water heating demands, especially if your family has grown over the years. If you have been noticing that your hot water is not lasting as long as it used too, it may be time to upgrade to a larger model. You should also look at the fuel source that you are using – if you have an old Rheem electric storage hot water heater, there may be an alternative fuel sourced hot water heater available to you (such as solar powered, gas or a heat pump) that you may find will be more energy efficient and will reduce your energy bills going forward.
You should also look at how you use your hot water, if you have had a dishwasher installed since having your existing hot water heater, or you seem to be doing more clothes washing etc. a bigger sized unit may be a better option.
Q. Which hot water heating fuel source would be right for me – solar powered, electric, gas or heat pump?
A. Rheem hot water heaters are available for all fuel sources but there are things you need to consider with each option to get the most out of your hot water heater
Electric storage heaters were popular back in the days but with technological advancements and a focus on climate change, it has been noted how much energy these hot water heaters can consume. Due to their high intensive greenhouse gas emissions many electric storage hot water heaters are being phased out across mainland Australia – your Mr Emergency Plumbing expert will be able to advise on if an electric hot water heater is viable in your area.

Rheem manufacture a wide range of gas continuous flow or gas storage hot water heaters. The Rheem gas hot water heater range are all extremely efficient hot water systems and all have high energy star ratings. When you are considering a Rheem gas hot water heater you need to ensure that you have access to reticulated natural gas or otherwise look at LPG options – many of the Rheem gas hot water heaters are compatible with both natural gas and LPG. If you have access to gas your next decision is a storage tank or a Rheem tankless instantaneous hot water heater? look at your storage options, do you have room for a tank on your property? Both models have their advantages depending on your needs – you can find more about each option on our Rheem gas hot water page.
Solar powered hot water is becoming increasingly popular and Rheem offer an attractive range of either roof mounted or ground mounted solar hot water heaters. When considering solar powered hot water you need to ensure there is access on your roof for the solar collector panels to be mounted in an unshaded area – solar powered panels work best when facing north. You should also think about if you will need frost protection – what is your climate like? And if you are looking at a roof mounted (thermosiphon) system, you need to check if your roof will need to be reinforced to handle the extra weight. Along with the above you should also consider a gas or electric solar powered booster to ensure you have hot water 24/7 even when the sun fails to shine. Mr Emergency Plumbing can discuss in detail the benefits of a Rheem solar powered system and if one is suitable for your property. Read more on solar hot water heating.
A heat pump is an excellent alternative to an electric storage hot water heater or as an option if a solar powered hot water heater is not able to be installed on your property. These units are extremely efficient and environmentally friendly and use the ambient air outside (rather than the sun) to heat the water stored in a tank ready for when you require it. The issues you should think about regarding a heat pump: is my climate suitable for the unit I am looking at? And, how quiet is the system?
