How do I choose?
What size do I need? Water heater capacity or volume is measured in gallons. You can determine the size of your existing model by looking at the nameplate or the yellow Energy Guide sticker. You can usually replace your current water heater with a similar sized model. A larger model is necessary if you have increased your hot water needs, for example, if you have more people living in your house or have added extra bathrooms or appliances.
Where will it be installed? Some of the newer tankless hot water heaters take up much less room and have fewer ambient requirements than a standard gas or electric model. In general, your water heater should be in a well ventilated area with temperatures not to exceed 90° F or go lower than 40° F.
Please note that Dipple Plumbing does not install Hybrid Gas Water Heaters, which only provides 2 gallons of water per minute (1 showerhead). Nor do we suggest Tankless Electric Water Heaters which require the addition of 100 amp electric service to your house, nearly doubling your electric bill.
