A sleek, durable water heater with a plethora of useful features to play with, the Rheem RTE 13 is designed for both indoor and outdoor use.

With its sleek design and rugged good looks, the Rheem RTE 13 is a tankless water heater with lots of features to play with! It features a temperature control, LED active element plus a standby mode for hot water on demand. It also boasts of modulating power, which offers steady water flow. This water heater is ideal for small homes, condos, and apartments as well as hospitals and offices. Its electrical specifications include 13 volts for operation and a 60 double pull breaker. Thanks to its compact design, the RTE 13 doesn’t take much space so it can fit always anywhere in the home, including cramped bathrooms.

We love how easy it is to use the RTE 13. The intuitive controls made the device so convenient to use, not to mention control the temperature level even when in a rush. The RTE 13 also features a brass/copper heat exchanger for faster water heating and continuous water flow. Although this is an electric-powered water heater, it’s incredibly energy efficient. In fact, most users who left a 5-star rating on Amazon raved about the amount of money they saved on electricity after using this device.

As for the downside, not all users were happy with the RTE 13 because of the poor customer service. There were users who complained that after getting a defective product, the return policy and customer support hasn’t been helpful. The RTE 13 is a popular water heater and we’re hoping that the brand will rectify the issue quickly.
