Sizing Your New Tankless Or Conventional Water Heater

Posted On: August 08, 2011

When purchasing a new water heater for your home, you will certainly want to determine the right size for your family and your water heating needs. Water heaters come in a variety of different sizes and capacities. Choosing the right size for your home will make certain you don’t waste valuable energy and money on heating water unnecessarily, or purchase a model that’s too small for your household needs. You don’t want to be left waiting for water to be heated when you need to take a shower or do the laundry.

Contrary to what you might think, a heater’s capacity is not the only factor to consider when choosing an acceptable water heater for your home. It’s also important to consider your energy source and how you’ll be heating your water. A key decision also will be whether to buy a traditional storage water heater, or one of the newer tankless (demand) models.

Consulting with a qualified contractor who is familiar with energy prices and available options in the Metro-East area is your best bet for ensuring a great fit. If you’re considering purchasing a new water heater, why not contact the helpful staff at Ernst Heating & Cooling? A technician will happy to speak to you about the water heaters available to you, and will help you to determine the best option for your home.
