What Size Water Heater Do I Need?
It’s important to choose the right size water heater for your home. If you decided to go for a storage tank water heater, the average amount of water you use per day is going to determine the capacity of tank you should buy. This chart will help you identify the right size unit for your house.
If a tankless water heater is your choice, you have 2 options to consider:
Replaces a storage tank-type water heater. Should be installed in a central location of the house.
Only provides hot water to 1 single fixture due to its very small size and is usually located under the sink, far from the central hot water source.
