Selecting The Right Gas Water Heater

In fact, the majority 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 house, finding a more cost-effective option is very wise indeed.

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

Are you always 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 may not make him more thoughtful, but it would cut your wait time in half.

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

Most houses will require a 40 gallon gas hot water heater. This heater will cover a moderate sized house with 3 to 4 residents, 2 restrooms, and a washing machine.

Obviously, if you live alone and only have one restroom, you can get by with a smaller sized water heater. On the other hand, you may require a larger heater if there are more family members, especially teens, in the house and a dishwasher or whirlpool baths.

Even when you have determined which gas water heater is the right size for your house, you may want to buy a size larger for a couple of reasons.

Most of these reasons will focus on your family's lifestyle. For example, if you have a family member who is notorious for taking long, exceptionally hot showers, or if you need to run the dishwasher, washing machine, and shower at the exact same time, you may want to buy a larger gas water heater than is suggested for your family size.

No matter what size gas water heater you choose, you can rest assured that you are heating water for a fraction of the cost associated with electric heaters. Now that's smart.Phoenix Arizona Heating Repair\nFor more Info go to
