What are the best Gas Fired Storage Water Heaters in 2019?
Here are the top picks from HvacRepairGuy!
- AO SMITH
This brand is from HEAT TRANSFER PRODUCTS. The PHOENIX LIGHT DUTY is a condensing gas-fired water heater with an AFUE of up to 96%. It has a stainless steel tank and electronic control as well as a modulating burner for energy savings. It is available in three tank sizes (55, 80, and 119 gallons). It has a side hot water outlet and bottom cold water inlet. It is a high capacity unit that is suitable for large homes or where whirlpool tubs are used and is backed by a very good guarantee.
The CONSERVATIONIST series has an auto sediment cleaning system but the warranty on the tank is not as good as many brands. The VERTEX POWER DIRECT VENT and VERTEX POWER-VENT are high efficiency gas fired models that are backed by a very good warranty. They have advanced electronic controls but use basic enameled tank technology.
This brand is made by HTP and offers high efficiency (97%) units in three sizes. They can be purchased online but their guarantee on most parts is not very good when compared to other brands.
