Tips for Shopping Water Heaters

Is it time for your customers to replace their water heaters? Determining the new model is as easy as checking the label on the old model for key information, including:

All Models

  • Gallon Capacity
  • Height & Diameter Dimensions

Electric Models

  • Wattage
  • Voltage

Gas Models

  • Fuel Type: Natural Gas or Propane
  • Exhaust Vent Diameter

Other Things to Consider

  • Larger-capacity water heaters should be considered for households outfitted with oversized or jetted tubs. They should also be used by customers who take multiple consecutive showers or do large loads of laundry.
  • Ensure that exhaust vents on gas units can handle a larger water heater with more BTU output.
  • Consider a self-cleaning electric model for customers dealing with hard water deposits on fixtures and heating elements. This will minimize repairs and service calls.
  • Be sure that new units are compliant with 2015 NAECA energy-efficiency water heater regulations.
