Tips for Buying the Right Hot Water Heater
If you determine that it is time to replace your hot water heater, there are a number of factors you will need to consider. We suggest following these tips:
- Pick a water heater that has an appropriate FHR (first-hour rating) based on your family’s peak-hour demand for hot water. We can help explain the various FHR options.
- Deciding on the right fuel type if you have options within your home. Natural gas, propane, and oil water heaters are more affordable to operate compared to electric options.
- Consider non-traditional options such as heat pump water heaters or tankless water heaters.
- Choose a water heater with the highest possible energy factor you can afford.
