Richmond Water Heaters
Write a review of Richmond water heaters
Richmond water heaters are built by Rheem Manufacturing Company. They are produced for both residential and commercial use. Consumers can purchase Richmond water heaters in many local hardware and home improvement stores.
The Rheem Manufacturing Company began its operations in 1927 supplying packaging to petroleum companies; in the 1930's it began building water heaters. The company subsequently bought Ruud Manufacturing in 1959, adding heating and cooling equipment to the business. Rheem acquired Raypak in 1985, which was a major manufacturer of copper tube boilers used in commercial hot water heating.
Rheem became a subsidiary of Paloma Industries in Japan in 1987, and is headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia. Its manufacturing facilities are located across the southeast U.S., California, Canada, Mexico, and Australia.
Richmond water heaters come in a variety of sizes and styles for residential use. Both electric and gas models are available. Electric models range in size from 40 to 120 gallon capacities. Gas models range from 40 to 75 gallon capacities and can use natural gas or liquid propane (LP). Consumers can choose the size based on how many people live in the home and will be using hot water, based on specifications listed on the company's website. Customers can also choose the model they want based on the warranty options. Some products offer a fast-recovery feature.
The Richmond line includes tankless water heaters for residential use. The tankless water heaters are energy-efficient and much smaller than traditional water heaters. Commercial Richmond products include heavy and light-duty water heaters, electric storage tanks, and boosters for water heaters. Replacement parts for Richmond boilers are easy to find.
Customers can choose warranty options at the time of purchase. On residential models these vary from six to twelve years. The Marathon models carry a lifetime warranty. The commercial electric water heaters have a three-year limited warranty and the storage tank has a five-year guarantee.
