If you are looking to replace an old Vulcan Freeloader then the Rheem Stellar is the ideal solution. Rheem Stellar can only be described as the “King” of gas water heaters. New Zealand’s most efficient domestic gas storage water heater is designed for long-life outdoor installation. The balanced super-flue design pulls the gas-heated hot air through the unit twice to maximise efficiency. The exhaust temperature exits at a very safe temperature through a very modern stylish exterior flue that looks the part.
