How To Pick The Right Size Water Heater

Published on: March 19, 2024

Stuck on which size water heater is the best fit for your home? Don't sweat it! Drain Wizards is here to help.

  1. Count People, Not Just Bathrooms: You need a water heater that can handle your household's needs. A good rule of thumb: 20-30 gallons for 1-2 people, 30-40 gallons for 2-3 people, 40-50 gallons for 3-4 people, and 50-80 gallons for 5 or more people.
  2. Consider Usage: How do you use hot water? If you love long, hot showers or have high-usage appliances, you might need a beefier water heater.
  3. Space Matters: Got a tight space? Size and fit are just as crucial as capacity. Ensure the dimensions of the new water heater will play nice with your available space.
  4. Future-Proof: Planning on expanding your family or adding a high-usage appliance? Consider getting a water heater with a bit more capacity than you currently need.
  5. Energy Efficiency: While a larger capacity may seem beneficial, balance it with energy efficiency to avoid unnecessary costs and energy consumption.
  6. Seek Professional Guidance: Still unsure? That's what we're here for! Drain Wizards can help assess your household's needs and recommend the perfect water heater size.

Remember, the right-sized water heater is about balancing capacity with efficiency. Too small, and you're shivering in the shower. Too large, and you're wasting energy and money.
