Picking The Right Gas Water Heater

In fact, a lot of gas water heaters run for less than half of the cost associated with traditional electric water heaters. Considering that hot water heaters are the 2nd largest user of energy in the home, finding a more affordable option is really smart indeed.

Gas hot water heaters are also very popular among homeowners because they reach their set temperature more than twice as fast as an electric water heater does. That suggests that you could probably run the dishwasher after your early morning shower, and still have hot water, not lukewarm water.

Are you constantly the one having to wait around for more hot water after a shower hog has carelessly used it all for himself? A gas water heater might not make him more considerate, but it would cut your wait time in half.

While gas water heaters heat water faster and cheaper than electric heaters, it is still very important to buy the right size tank that your home requires. A gas water heater that is too small can still leave you showering in lukewarm water.

A lot of homes will need a 40 gallon gas hot water heater. This heater will take care of a moderate sized home with 3 to 4 residents, 2 washrooms, and a washing machine.

Obviously, if you live alone and only have one bathroom, you can manage with a smaller water heater. On the other hand, you might require a bigger heater if there are more family members, especially teens, in the home and a dishwasher or whirlpool baths.

Even when you have actually determined which gas water heater is the right size for your home, you might want to buy a size larger for a few reasons.

Many of these reasons will focus on your household's lifestyle. For instance, if you have a family member who is famous for taking long, extremely hot showers, or if you have to run the dishwasher, washing machine, and take a shower at the exact same time, you might want to buy a bigger gas water heater than is recommended for your household size.

No matter what size gas water heater you select, you can rest assured that you are heating water for a fraction of the cost associated with electric heaters. Now that's smart.Tucson Heating Repairs\nPerry Heating & Cooling
