Things to Consider when Choosing a New Hot Water Heater:

TYPES - There are two kinds of heaters: the standard tank heater that is present in most homes, and the tankless heater. Both types are available in gas or electric power varieties. Below is a brief description of the pros and cons related to each type.

Tank hot water heaters All of the tanks we install are energy efficient and quick recovery, although gas styles are faster recovery than electric.


    • A tank full of preheated water that can still be used if the power goes out
    • Will feed multiple fixtures at the same time
    • Gas tank heaters will continue to produce hot water during a power outage


    • Will eventually run out of hot water if used for an extended period of time
    • Must run every few hours to maintain the temperature in the tank

Tankless Water Heaters Both gas and electric are energy efficient. Electric heaters require more amperage than most houses supply and they will only run one fixture at a time. Gas tankless heaters will supply two fixtures at a time, but they usually require a larger gas line, new venting and a modified electrical outlet when converting from a tank type heater.


    •           Only use power to heat water when there is flow
    •           Provide continuous hot water for as long as needed


    • About three times the price of standard tank type heaters
    • Produce a finite volume of hot water per minute
    • Supply a limited number of fixtures

WARRANTY - Get a  Water Heater with a long warranty. A longer warranty perform best, and will cover you for up to 6 years. The water heaters with the longest warranties are the best performing. Also, the price difference between the two does not warrant opting for the lower warranty. It should be noted that testing found that hot water heaters with the longer warranties were better constructed. Having the longest warranty is also important, because most warranties only cover the unit itself, not the cost of replacing it. If you are using water softeners, then a longer warranty is highly recommended.

FIRST HOUR RATING (FHR) - Although it is possible that you could figure in the size of the water tank into your decision, this is not as important as the FHR. The FHR measures how much hot water the heater can produce in one hour.

DETERMINE DAILY WATER CONSUMPTION – This is important and should be based on your busiest day of the week. Things such as laundry, dishwashers, showers, etc. – calculate how much time you need hot water for each. Add these figures up, comparing your total to the FHR on the yellow energy label. If it is equal to or better than your number, then all is good.

GET THE DIMENSIONS BEFOREHAND - Measure the area you will be putting the hot water heater before you buy. Because federal regulations call for 5%-10% increased efficiency(electric and gas heaters), the insulation used has made the actual size – so, tight spots could be a problem.

GAS MAY BE YOUR BEST OPTION - Although gas heaters typically cost more than their electric counterparts, they are more economical in the long run – paying for themselves in a year. If you do not already have a gas line feeding into your home, consider the cost of getting one. It would wise to insulate the hot water pipe on the heater, as well as the cold water exhaust pipe.

INSTALL SMOKE DETECTORS AND CARBON MONOXIDE DETECTORS - While the higher capacity water heaters have a safeguard built in to keep from catching flammable vapors on fire, it’s better to err on the side of caution just in case.

CHECK YOUR VENTING –Hot water heaters share the same exhaust as a furnace. If you must change the chimneys for one of these, it is best to change the other one as well.
