Not Sure I like this Tank...May return if possible!
Installed 3/14/14 in basemt. My question...Are water tanks today a lot noisier than used to be? This one sure is! Can hear it upstairs. Am told by 2 Sears repair guys, its normal! Previous tank lasted 18+ years, and never heard it upstairs, or much downstairs. I find the flame to be to noisy, loud, & unsteady! Not saying it is dangerous, but it is a unnecessary nuisance!. Also shortly after opening hot side of faucet tank always come on. Wondering " am I using more gas here"? I formerly held a Stationary Engineer License so I do have have knowledge. The fact that we are told "things are not made as well as they used to, or on the other hand the technology has improved" does not impress me. Thanks...JB

Works Fine; Hope it last a long time

There is little heat emanating from this H2O heater, implying the internal insulation is good. You won;t need a heater blanket for it. Very quiet.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Sears Hot Water Heater

Just installed it. Not top of the line, but good, so I expect to be very satisfied. Installation easy except for the soddering piece and getting the unit into the attic.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Nice Water Heater

This water heater was perfect for my needs, was easy to install and works great. The only reason for the four star rating was because it is a bit noisy and I wasn't expecting that.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great basic water heater

This is the updated version of the old water heater. It was easy to install and works great. While is may just be a basic water heater it is an excellent, quality product. For the price you can't beat it and it will save you money versus the cost of operating an old, crud ed up water heater.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

So Far So Good

After comps to other major DIY stores and a plumber I chose Sears Kenmore for the best combo of price and reliability. The various store prices for a 40 gal, 6 yr warranty were similar, but the reviews seemed to favor Kenmore as having fewer breakdowns, and more willingness to work with the customer when there was a problem. I bought the additional warranty for about $50 to have a plumber fix any parts if needed. Seemed worth it vs the time I would have to spend figuring it out. Also, I had Sears do the install. The plumber and crew were excellent. No additional work was required to make the new unit fit. They arrived on time and took the old unit with them. Overall, I have plenty of hot water with an extensive warranty at a price 1/3 less ($400 less) than the plumber's quote. The last "quality" unit by the plumber only lasted 3 months past the 6 year warranty. So, I don't think I am sacrificing quality by going through a big box store instead of a plumber. So far, so good.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
