Rheem’s Stellar New Stainless Steel Range
The new Rheem Stellar Stainless Steel is available in models suitable for connection to either electricity or gas.
“There is an array of benefits to stainless steel water heaters, and we recognised the need to provide the trade and consumers with an option, depending on their individual requirements,”says Gareth Jennings, Rheem’s general manager of marketing and corporate affairs.
The new Rheem Stellar Stainless Steel water heaters have been designed with performance, high energy efficiency, features and aesthetics firmly in mind. Plus they are backed by a 10-year warranty on the cylinder.
Rheem’s stainless steel water heaters are lighter compared to vitreous enamel (the electric models up to 40% lighter than comparable Rheemglas electric water heater models), making them easier to handle, transport and install. “As the electric models are significantly lighter, it’s great news for plumbers who often need to move these units up several flights of stairs in apartment blocks, or negotiate narrow side passageways of houses,” Jennings adds. “And compared to vitreous enamel, stainless steel cylinders are intrinsically more prone to resist corrosion.”
