American Standard water heaters can be purchased online through mass retailers such as Amazon, through auction sites such as eBay and from hardware and home supply stores such as Home Depot. The American Standard website also allows users to search for licensed dealers within a specific geographic location.
Auction sites such as eBay feature both new and used American Standard water heaters. While most sellers provide accurate descriptions on their products, eBay does not monitor the descriptions placed on its site. As such, it is best for users to read each listing carefully to fully understand each units condition.
In addition to its own supply of products, Amazon allows third-party sellers to list products on its site through the Amazon Marketplace program. All items sold through this program contain the same features as items sold from Amazon itself, such as user reviews, pictures and descriptions and a question and answer section. These products can be paid for with any payment method accepted by Amazon, such as credit or debit cards, direct bank withdrawal, Amazon gift cards or a balance in an Amazon Payments account. Shipping is set for each item by the seller, with only those fulfilled by Amazon qualifying for its Prime expedited shipping.
