Current Recommendations?

Looking at replacing the natural gas WH in my home. It is a 40 gal. I am wondering what you recommend that is readily available. Also would prefer not to replace the existing chimney. We have Sears, Menards, Home Depot nearby.

Thanks. Gary

If you have those stores...likely you have a plumbing supply like Ferguson or similar. You'll normally find a better product there. I think many people here recommend AO Smith branded units.

I also like Bradford-White, but I do have a good source to buy them. Sears water heaters are made by AO Smith, Rheem makes the GE Home Depot units and I think they also make the Menard's Richmond unit in Mexico. I prefer to stay away from the big box brands, especially Whirlpool by American Water Heater.

IMO youll never be ahead in payback with any tankless heater.
