How to Pick a Water Heater Size For Your Home

How to Pick a Water Heater Size For Your Home

Today, we’ll help you decide on the best water heater size for your home.

Are you thinking about getting a new water heater for your home? If you are, then one factor that you’ll need to consider is the size of the heater you choose. The heater’s size is important since it impacts how much energy your home uses, as well as the comfort level of your home as a whole. Today, we’ll help you decide on the best water heater size for your home.

How Many Bathrooms Does Your Home Have?

The number of bathrooms in your house will influence how much hot water your home likely uses. If there’s one bathroom, you’ll probably need a 30-40 gallon heater. For homes with multiple bathrooms, a heater of at least 50 gallons will likely be required.

Consider Your Household Size

When you’re deciding on the optimal water heater size for your house, think about how big your household is. If your household is larger and has more people living in it, then you’ll need a larger water heater to accommodate everybody’s needs. Likewise, a smaller household with fewer people allows you to use a smaller heater in your home.

How Much Space Does Your Home Have to Fit One?

A water heater takes up space, so the heater you get for your house is affected by how much available space your home has. Make sure you have a space measured out in your home that’s able to accommodate whatever water heater you choose to install.

Do You Live in a Cold Climate?

Perhaps you live in an area that frequently has cold weather. If this is the situation for you, you’ll need more hot water in order to account for how cold the weather gets. A larger water heater is beneficial in this situation to ensure you always have enough heat when you need it.
