GE: 2.35, Smith: 2.4, Rheem: 2.0, Steibel: 2.5
So the Steibel will draw less amps and makes the best use of energy. Looks like a very good product.
Only problem is the size, it’s 26” round. I have space for 24”. So unless I want to start revamping ductborad, it’s not going to fit.
My current water heater is actually a 40 gal and we’ve never run out of HW, so a 50 gal should be sufficient. 99.9% of the time this water heater supplies 1 full bath (for a 4 yr old), kitchen sink and dishwasher.
