Select the Style and Size That Fits Your Demands
When exploring the types of water heaters that are available for new construction, remodeling or replacements, the U. S. Department of Energy recommends you consider –
- Fuel type – Your location may limit your choice, but when there are options some types are more efficient than others. Typically, your choices in the Waukesha Wisconsin region will be natural gas, propane, electricity of solar power.
- Size – Size is critical to provide a household with enough hot water to maximize efficiency and meet the demands. Consider extra demand as your family grows – teenagers use more water! And if remodeling plans include a spa tub, expanded showers or a new bathroom, your existing water heater may not be up to the challenge.
- Energy Efficiency – Efficiency and operating cost go hand in hand. While a highly rated, large capacity water heater may have a larger initial cost, it may reclaim the outlay with monthly savings. Work with your Schoenwalder professional to select the most efficient unit for your needs.
- Costs – There’s the cost of the unit now, the cost of daily operation and the cost of replacement or repairs in the future. Less efficient designs have lower initial costs but may have higher operating costs and need repair or replacement sooner.
