Rheem Australia has bolstered its popular Stellar® suite of products with the launch of a new range of stainless steel water heaters. The new Rheem Stellar Stainless Steel is available in models suitable for connection to either electricity or gas.
“This is a logical extension of the established and popular Rheem Stellar brand – the introduction of superior stainless steel water heaters in both electric and gas versions,” says Gareth Jennings, Rheem’s general manager of marketing and corporate affairs.
“There are a myriad 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.”
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. They are also sleek, modern and durable.
“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.”
Key features include:
Rheem Stellar Electric
Rheem Stellar Gas 330 stainless steel
Note: stainless steel will last longer in good water quality areas (i.e. water which contains low chlorides and is relatively pH neutral). For further information on whether these products are suitable for particular areas view the Rheem Stainless Steel Suitability Map >>
