Features to consider when buying a new water heater
“There are many factors to consider when buying a new water heater. You should first of all consider the size of the room or house where you intend to put your heater. Then, you should also consider how much hot water you need. This is because a large water heater is going to be very expensive and may not be worth the money unless you use it a lot. If you only plan on using the heater in the bathroom, then a small one is most likely suitable. But if you use it in the kitchen, then a large one is more suitable as it is going to take up more space and it will also heat the water much faster.
Another thing to consider is how much pressure you are going to need from the water pump. There are many different models and pumps available. Some are electric, others are gas powered. The electric ones will have a controller that will allow you to control the flow of the water and it will also adjust the temperature. For the gas powered ones, you will find that they are quite simple to operate. However, they tend not to have the features that the electric ones have.”

As with most large investments you’ll want to read over the warranty coverage for your new water heater. If anything should break down within the initial years you don’t want to have to foot the repair bill. Also, the capacity of the tank is important too. In certain cases, a tankless water heater might be a great option for use in 1 or 2 plumbing fixtures simultaneously.
