Great water heater & installation!!!

The salesman that helped me was fantastic. I was going to buy the more expensive model so I would have a greater warranty period. He showed me how I could save money buying this model and adding the extended warranty. I was able to get the same day installation. I was extremely impressed with the knowledgeable, efficiency of the installer. Everything was done to code, and he even took the time and effort to check our outside faucets were properly shut off due to the extreme cold weather. I love how quickly the water heats! Great service, great installation, great warranty and GREAT product! I would highly recommend!
