Smart Features Can Add Ease and Comfort to Your Holiday Season

October 13, 2020

With family time coming up for the holiday season, make full use of smart features on our water heaters. They will help you be in control of your hot water, manage your usage and avoid potential water damage. The features covered here are included on the Rheem® Smart Electric Water Heater or ProTerra™ Hybrid Electric Water Heater. If you don’t already have either of these models or another Rheem smart water heater, read on to learn about the smart features you may have available on your next water heater.

You can use your mobile devices to control music, TV, lights, temperature and appliances. Using our EcoNet® app, you can now control your water heater as a part of your smart home. Using these smart features, you can get all the extra showers, laundry, cooking and dishes done without running out of hot water or breaking the bank.

  • Check hot water availability to make sure you don’t end up with a cold shower after all the extra water use throughout the day
  • View usage reports daily, monthly and yearly to keep your usage in check
  • Set a schedule to plan around high utility rates to save money
  • Change to vacation mode to save money if you’re out of town, even after you’ve already left

The new ProTerra unit is loaded with money-saving smart features and protects your home with LeakGuard. The Smart Electric Water Heater has some of the same features.

As your water heater gets older, you want to know if it needs to be serviced or if your whole unit needs to be replaced. No one wants to risk potential water damage, especially during the holidays when you’re enjoying family time. It’s a huge inconvenience and a costly home insurance claim.

Having a water heater issue is the last thing you want to deal with when you’re in the busy holiday season. LeakGuard™ is a complete leak detection system that detects a leak and has an auto shut-off valve to limit the leak to no more than 20 oz. of water.

Peace of Mind

Our smart features are designed to bring you peace of mind. Enjoy your holidays!
