    I heard Ruud was built by Rheem am I safe with a Ruud?

    I received an estimate for a 52 gallon Ruud Pacemaker for $**** installed, converted to copper and haul the old one away.

    If I want to step up to a 66 gallon Ruud Pacemaker its $200 more. Good prices?

    I want the higest efficiency, energy rating and recovery time.

    Thanks,
    Joe
