What is a Richmond Water Heater?




Richmond water heaters are manufactured by Rheem, one of the largest and most trusted brands in the water heating industry. Rheem has been producing water heaters since 1930, and offers a wide range of models for residential and commercial use. Rheem also owns other water heater brands, such as Ruud, GE, and Marathon.


Richmond water heaters are sold exclusively at The Home Depot, and are designed to provide reliable and efficient performance. Richmond offers gas, electric, hybrid, tankless, and solar water heaters, as well as accessories and parts. You can find more information about Richmond water heaters on their [official website].


Where is the Serial Number on a Richmond Water Heater?




The serial number on a Richmond water heater is usually located on a sticker or plate on the side of the tank. The serial number consists of several letters and numbers, and may also include a prefix or suffix. The serial number contains information about the date of manufacture, model, capacity, and other features of the water heater.


The serial number sticker or plate may also have other information, such as the model number, capacity, energy factor, voltage, wattage, gas input, and pressure rating. You can use these information to identify the specifications and features of your water heater.


How to Decode the Serial Number on a Richmond Water Heater?




The serial number on a Richmond water heater can be decoded using a simple formula. The formula may vary depending on the style or format of the serial number. According to the [Building Intelligence Center], there are three common styles or formats of serial numbers for Richmond water heaters:



  • Style 1: R 0884 B10488 (Serial Number begins with a prefix i.e. R; RN; RNG; RHNG; etc.)



  • Style 2: RHNG 0804 P000036 (Serial Number begins with a prefix i.e. R; RN; RNG; RHNG; etc.)



  • Style 3: 05.05-000021 (Tankless Water Heater)




The formula for decoding the serial number is as follows:



  • The third digit is the year of manufacture. For example, 8 means 2008 or 2018.



  • The fourth digit is the month of manufacture. For example, 4 means April.



  • The fifth digit is the week of manufacture. For example, 0 means the first week of the month.



  • The rest of the digits are the sequential production number of the water heater.




For style 3 (tankless water heater), the formula is slightly different:



  • The first two digits are the year of manufacture. For example, 05 means 2005.



  • The third and fourth digits are the month of manufacture. For example, 05 means May.



  • The rest of the digits are the sequential production number of the water heater.




To illustrate how to decode the serial number, let's look at some examples:
