Water Heater Ratings

FurnaceCompare.com collects consumer reviews on a broad range of heating and cooling appliances. Each review includes a description of the homeowner’s opinion of their water heater, and also a rating which ranges from 5 (“Very Satisfied”) to 1 (“Very Unsatisfied”). We then average those ratings and present them below, ranked from “Most Satisfied” to “Least Satisfied”.
