There are numerous factors to consider when choosing a new water heater, including type, capacity, efficiency, and cost.

Type. While storage water heaters are most common, there are a number of other types of water heaters that may suit your needs.

Capacity. Sizing of hot water heaters should be based on the number of occupants and their peak hour water demand and not on the size of the house. The peak hour demand or first-hour rating (FHR) is the measure of how much hot water the heater will deliver in an hour and is required by law to appear on the Energy Guide Label. Don’t buy a water heater bigger than you need, or you’ll be paying to heat water you don’t use! Your Lindstrom Plumbing Technician will perform a capacity test to determine the right size water heater for your home

Efficiency. When buying a new water heater make sure to check the energy efficiency rating shown on the Energy Guide labels and look for one with at least 1.5 inches of foam insulation.

Cost. It’s very easy to look for an inexpensive water heater and ignore the operating costs. Often the least expensive water heaters are the most expensive to operate. A high-efficiency water heater may cost a little more initially, but reduced operating costs will more then make up for the higher outlay. Check the Energy Guide label to help choose an energy thrifty heater.
