What Size Water Heater Do I Need?
The size of your water heater will really depend on your home’s hot water needs. Standard water heaters vary in how many gallons the tank can hold. To determine what capacity is best for you, you’ll need to look at how many people are in the home and how much hot water is typically used on a hourly and daily basis.
Dangers of Incorrectly Sized Water Heaters
- Water heater that is too small. Installing a water heater that is too small could lead to your family running out of hot water too quickly or the system working on overdrive to deliver the hot water you need. This can lead to wear-and-tear on the unit.
- Water heater that is too large. Installing a water heater that is too large will decrease your energy efficiency, as a higher amount of hot water is being produced than your home requires. This can result in higher utility costs each month as well.
Along with finding the correct sized system, it’s imperative you have a professional handle the replacement. If not, you run the risk of your water heater being installed incorrectly, which could impact the efficiency of your new system.
