You and your family depend on your water heater to provide reliable hot water for showers, baths, and plenty more. If this appliance begins to perform less efficiently or develops leaks, it can have a real impact on your comfort and your ability to perform necessary tasks around your Stockbridge, GA home. Choosing the right water heater replacement is essential to provide you and your family with convenient access to hot water for cleaning, washing and other needs. Here are some points to consider when planning your water heater installation.
What Type of Fuel Will Your New Water Heater Use?
According to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), homeowners can select from a wide range of fuel types for new water heaters. Two of the most popular fuel types are natural gas and electric.
Is a Tankless System Right for You?
Tankless water heaters provide on-demand hot water for all areas of your house. These systems are compact in size and are ideal for smaller homes. They may not provide adequate heating power or speed to allow for simultaneous use by multiple appliances or fixtures, however.
What Size Do You Need?
The DOE website offers guidance on the proper sizing for water heater installations. For tank water heaters, a 50 to 60-gallon storage capacity is usually adequate. Larger families will typically require an 80-gallon or larger tank to ensure plenty of hot water for doing laundry, washing dishes, and personal hygiene requirements.
