Great Product

Comments about 40 Gallon ProMax Direct Vent Residential Water Heater:

I needed a direct vent product and was trying to decide between this tank and an on demand water heater. After reading alot of reviews I decided on the waterheater because of consistant complaints about the on demand system.
My only complaint was the shipping. They keep calling and setting a time to deliver and then after wasteing half a day they would call and reschedule. After a week of this I went down to the freight company and picked it up only to find it scratched and dented.The damage was not enough to prevent it from working and it is in my utility room where noone will see it so I keep it but I was disappointed in the shipping company.

Comments about 40 Gallon ProMax Direct Vent Residential Water Heater:

AO Smith water heaters are the best on the market. This 40 gallon Pro Max is just another great example of the AO Smith brand. I had a AO Smith previuos to this one and it lasted 20 years. I then purchased a different brand (big mistake) with in one week I returned it and purchased this AO Smith. Lets just say I learned my lesson to stick with a proven Brand. We are very happy to have a AO Smith water heater again!

Very happy with this product

Comments about 40 Gallon ProMax Direct Vent Residential Water Heater:

Our 20-year-old AO Smith unpowered direct vent water heater finally gave up the ghost, and had to hunt around for a replacement. We located this water heater at Pex, which was very similar. The efficiency of this water heater allowed us to go from a 50 to a 40 gallon tank and still accommodate a family of 5. We even turned down the heat setting to its lowest level.
We appreciate its efficient use of gas and the fact that no electricity is needed to run the exhaust, which saves money and means it works when the power goes out.
