You just installed your new water heater loaded with smart features – now what? Often these smart features go unutilized, but they can make a big difference. Want to save or maximize hot water supply? Adjust your water heater schedule? Going on vacation? No problem. Using built-in Wi-Fi technology, the Rheem® EcoNet® app connects to your smart water heater to alert you of important information, help you address problems before they occur and save on energy costs. You can always monitor your water heater right from your smartphone.
With our app update, we make controlling the water heater from anywhere1 easy. Read on to find out more about the smart features. Let’s keep the hot water flowing!

Walkthrough of Rheem EcoNet Smart Features

Convenient App Overview – When you open the app, a dashboard screen will greet you. You can rely on this for quick status updates on the water heater’s operation mode, compressor health, hot water availability and the unit’s set water temperature. Here, you can see the dashboard for the Rheem ProTerra® Hybrid Electric Heat Pump Water Heater, which is one of our smart products.
