Whirlpool hot water heaters, features, specs, model reviews and model numbers explained. Explore the features that increase the efficiency, reduce the energy waste and greenhouse gases and protect the unit.
Whirlpool offers a variety of hot water heaters for residential use, including both gas-powered and electrical type. The selection is decent, and the quality is great. For example, electric models are designed as the high efficient heat pumps and standard type, which utilize several advanced features such as the 6th Sense and LCD digital display.
Gas-powered models have only three sizes and three categories, from standard, energy efficiency to high efficiency, plus they offer three warranty lengths; 6, 9 and 12 years. Those models with the features such as the commercial-grade anode rod and self-cleaning system are found among water heaters with the longer warranties, such as 9 and 12 years.
Whirlpool hot water heaters can use natural or propane gas. With the sizes from 30 to the most popular 50-gallon, gas heaters are ideal equally for smaller one-bath homes to larger homes with five and more members.
There are two sizes, tall, which is a standard type and short that are used in homes with the space issue. The economy, cheaper models are those with 6-year warranty while the most expensive ones are gas water heaters with the 12-year warranty that include the microprocessor, self-cleaning system, ultra Low NOx burner, 6-th sense technology and provide high energy factor. One of these models comes with the patented air intake system which helps in the energy factor increase up to 0.70. You can find more details about Whirlpool gas water heaters here.
Whirlpool hot water heaters that are using the electricity to run can be found in two groups; standard and heat pumps. Electric models that utilize the heat pump can produce hot water twice and more efficiently than conventional type, and they use the advanced technology.
Standard models include the microprocessor and the touch screen LCD display for convenient temperature control and error code display. See the review of the Whirlpool electric water heaters and how they reduce the standby heat loss and save you money.
At this point, Whirlpool hot water heaters are built only as the tank-type models, by the American Water Heater Company and are sold exclusively by the Lowe's hardware store.
