Heating

Quick Tips:

Choosing the right water heater for your home:

In sizing for the right model suitable for your application, ask yourself these simple questions:

  • How many showers are typically running at the same time during peak shower time?
  • Are any other hot-water appliances, like the dishwasher or clothes washer, usually running at the same time?
  • Do you live in the South Coastal Region, or in a Northern climate where water comes into the house colder and, therefore, needs a bigger boost to come up to shower temperature?
  • What is the desired hot water outlet temperature?

A standard shower uses 2.5 gallons of water per minute (GPM)

  • Filling a standard bath tub uses ~3.0 GPM
  • Running a dishwasher uses ~2.0 GPM
  • Filling a clothes washer uses ~2.0 GPM

To calculate your peak demand:

  • Figure the number of uses that are used simultaneously during a peak time and add together the total GPM from each use. (For example, if you want to run two standard showers simultaneously, you’ll need 5GPM)

Figure out where you live – in the Sunbelt or a cold Northern climate.

Decide if you need a higher temperature range for your specific hot water uses.

Now, based on that information, decide which tankless water heater will support your peak demand in the middle of the winter.
