ProTerra Was Designed with Plumbers in Mind
July 10, 2020
Rheem’s new hybrid fits more applications and was built for easy installation and service. Rheem® ProTerra™ Hybrid Electric Water Heater fits into tight spaces, saves customers money and installs just like a standard electric tank – so you’re already a pro at installing it.
It Makes Everything Easy
Sell – most efficient product on the market and will save your customer up to $4,800 over 10 years in energy costs1
Install – it’s perfect for replacement because it has one-button startup, is the same size as standard electric water heaters of like capacities, has a front-facing condensate line, offers easy earthquake strap installation, comes in a new 40-gallon size and all sizes have a zero clearance requirement so it can fit into tight spaces and closets
Service – all service components are on the front, there is easy access to the heat pump cover with no water connection, elements or thermostats to remove and it has a snap-off electronic control
Offer Customers Savings Today, Savings Tomorrow
It saves customers money as soon as it’s installed with a tax credit ($300)2, local utility rebates and energy cost savings. It can save them money in the long-run with energy cost savings adding up over time (up to $480 per year).3
Create a Life-Long Customer Relationship
Homeowners will receive alerts so they know when to give their plumber a call. The WiFi technology is built in and customers receive alerts via the Rheem EcoNet® app. Homeowners know the health of their compressor and element so they can proactively schedule service calls to prevent issues.
Pays for Itself in Two Years or Less
This occurs by factoring in the cost of ProTerra compared to a standard electric product and estimated annual energy cost savings. Factor in rebates and your payback is even faster. ProTerra uses less energy to operate than a classic 100-Watt incandescent light bulb.4
