we have two 2 one (giant), each in 60 gal which were installed 10-11 years ago. When we moved in this house, we only have 3 people which is much less than previous owner. These 2 old one is too much for us. I want to replace them with one new 60 gal. pls let me know which brand is better to us? Rheem or Giant? In the sake of bill cost and maintenance fee. Thanks!

Hi I amCustomer a independent technician, I will assist you with your issue.

Don't forget to rate the 5 star rating AT THE TOP OF PAGE after we are done. this will credit me for assisting you.

For a period of 10 years, average life of HWT

Unless you have a well with hard water, or mineral heavy, No maintenaice required. Both can be flushed every year if needed.

Both have the same R value

Energy consumtion is the same as the 2 elements are the same resistantce,

depending of the model unit, some have better warranties

I would look at unit price and get the better $/warranty one.
