Residential Sizing Guide
Things To Consider
- If someone is running out of hot water in the household it could be due to items such as oversized or jetted tubs, using multiple consecutive showers or several large loads of laundry. Consider a larger water heater.
- If you are planning to stay in your home, consider models made with a longer warranty, it’s less expensive when installation and maintainance expenses are considered.
- If you have hard water that leaves deposits on fixtures and requires frequent replacement of heating elements, consider a self-cleaning model
- For Gas models, check to make sure exhaust vent will handle a larger water heater with more BTU input.
