Information released by Rheem recently outlined the choices in the market and what systems offer fast hot water recovery and are also efficient to run. Rheem claim to offer the best recovery options in the market. The article states that consumers should beware of other 4 or 5 Star models that claim high recovery yet actually recover SIGNIFICANTLY LESS (some 4 Star models recover as little as 74L/hour*, much less than your customer may be used to).
Although 4 and 5 Star energy efficient water heaters may not recover at the same rate as 3 Star (a side effect of their increased efficiency), by choosing a Rheem option you’ll minimise the chance of an unhappy customer with insufficient hot water from their new water heater installation. Rheem 4 Star and 5 Star options offer full-temperature hot water recovery from 113L1* to as high as 200L/hour1*. Refer to the chart below.
