Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Measure Twice

Mshello 3/11/2021

The Hot Water Heater is really nice works very well. It replaced a 38 year old hot water heater. Make sure you measure the high and the width of the one you are removing. This one is over 5 feet tall and about 24 inches bottom at the widest point. Make sure you measure twice or you may be making a few trips back to the store to get hoses.

Excellent

Jennva 3/8/2021

So far we love this hot water tank! We are a family of 4 that would constantly be worried about running out of hot water with our old tank. Last night we all took showers back to back and did not run out of hot water. It was such a relief.

Good quality, basic features, less likely to break

noyb51 2/3/2021

It's only been a couple of weeks. It heats water, and it didn't break yet. After that, I don't need or want to think about. Being a basic water heater means no digital displays or wifi stuff or energy saving heat pump added on top to break later. And it's less expensive upfront. Easy do-it-yourself install if it is close to your existing unit dimensions and water pipe locations.

Hot water when you need it!!

GBarb 8/17/2020

I've had this product for a little over a year now and it has met my expectations. I replaced my 40 gallon gas water heater with a 50 gallon GE Appliances electric model to save money on my gas bill. I have a big family and there are times when more than one person needs hot water. This unit has handled it very well.

Coworker 7/29/2020

Never ran out of hot water after installation of this water heater even when we had two or three visitors in addition to my family of four. Three people were able to take nice hot shower simultaneously and followed by another three .

Great quality for home appliance

bamatunz 7/15/2020

The tank came very sturdy, clean, and quite tall - about 6 feet. I did have to adjust my pipes but it performs perfectly and heats water in just a few minutes.
