Marathon Water Heaters

Marathon Water Heaters

Value added products are a great way to increase revenue from existing customers while providing them with a top quality product, as is the case with Marathon water heaters. Marathon heaters are a great product for both the utility and the end user. Utilities are able to secure load from the customer by selling Marathon water heaters and end users are getting an energy efficient appliance with an excellent warranty. Rheem Marathon water heaters come in many different sizes making them applicable in residential, commercial, point-of-use, and solar thermal applications.

Securing Utility Loads
Normal water heaters eventually fail over time and when they do most customers will switch fuel sources when purchasing a new tank. By helping to provide end users with Marathon water heaters, you are also providing them with a product with a lifetime warranty on the heater’s tank. This helps ensure the customer will not buy another tank with a different fuel source for as long as they own their home. This lifetime warranty also gives the utility the peace of mind of knowing they have locked in the load from that appliance for many years to come.

An Unbeatable Warranty
Co-op utilities stand behind the quality of the products they are recommending, selling, or providing utility rebates on. Why not make sure it is the best on the market? Marathon water heaters all come with a manufacturer’s standard limited lifetime warranty on the tank. Most Marathon heaters feature titanium plated lower heating elements which are multiple times tougher than standard electric heating elements. Marathon heaters are made with fiberglass rather than light weight steel allowing them to be more durable and flexible when it comes to less than ideal water conditions. Most tanks weigh less than 100lbs – half of what regular steel tanks weigh. Many customers can move the tank in place by themselves. The installation is quick and easy and most utilities provide utility rebates on DIY-installations.

Green Effects
Both customers and utilities are looking for new ways to save on energy use and help the environment. Offering Marathon water heaters to your users can help you provide a solution that does just that. Marathon heaters are energy efficient and use less energy than older steel heaters due to special design innovation such as the EnvirofoamTM insulation that is wrapped in a fiberglass shell. This helps reduce heat loss over time with only a minimal reduction of five degrees Fahrenheit in 24 hours. Another great green effect the Marathon water heaters have is that the foam and fiberglass shell are less likely to burst or puncture. This means that end users are less likely to replace the tanks with new ones therefore reducing the amount of useless water heaters in landfills.

These are just some of the highlights on why utilities should be offering Marathon water heaters to their end users. Rheem Marathon also has marketing and sales assistance programs available for utilities offering Marathon heaters to their residential or commercial customers.
