The most common Electric Water Heater is the standard 50 Gallon Electric. With Excellent thermal efficiency, and a reasonably sized tank, this model is able to support most 3-4 bedroom homes with 2-4 bathrooms. Electric Tank Water Heaters heat the water by passing electricity through 1 of 2 heating elements. These elements work similarly to the burner on an electric stove, and are immersed in the water to effectively warm the tank.
When there just isn't enough headroom for a standard Water Heater, a low boy is just the ticket. Available in a number of tank sizes, you can usually find one to fit in any situation. Due to limited manufacturing quantities, these can sometimes be harder to find, or be slightly higher in price than their standard height equivalant.
While 50 Gallon Water Heaters are the most common, the Standard 40 Gallon is not far behind. Engineered to serve homes with 1-2 bathrooms, it is an economical alternative for builders to install. If you have a 40 Gallon water heater that isn't keeping up, ask us about a free upgrade to a 50 Gallon.
The ultimate prize for any marthon showerer is the tankless water heater. Because it heats the water on demand, there is no running out of hot water. Though Tankless Water heaters can be incredibly efficient, they are not always the optimal solution to every burning question. Electric Tankless water heaters use a lot of power when they are heating and require lots of electrical consideration when they are being installed. Additionally, they require slightly more maintenance than a tank.
