MAKING THE RIGHT CHOICE FOR YOUR HOME, YOUR FAMILY AND THE ENVIRONMENT IS EASIER THAN YOU THINK.
In emergency situations, water heaters are replaced in haste based solely on storage tank size. Many times homeowners purchase the same size tank as the previous unit. By preparing yourself with some basic information, you will be able to make an informed decision regarding the best water heater for your home.
1. Energy Efficiency
All water heaters have an Energy Factor (EF) rating. The EF measures how efficiently your water heater burns gas.
2. First-Hour Rating (FHR)
The FHR measures how much hot water the unit will deliver during a high-demand hour. Your installer can help you calculate the appropriate FHR to meet your household needs.
3. Equipment Capacity
An oversized water heater wastes energy when not in use. Make sure your installer helps you choose a system sized to meet your family’s needs.
Follow these easy steps when purchasing and installing a water heater for your home.
- Choose a tank size that will efficiently meet your household’s hot water needs.
- Install your new system in a place where it is easily accessible and can be maintained.
- Make sure your water heater is properly vented and insulate at least the first 15 feet of your hot water pipes.
- Talk to your installer about the maintenance requirements of your new equipment and have your installer show you how to perform basic maintenance tasks.
