The electric water heater Decatur residents have may or may not be right for your family. And that is why we are here to help you. We know that facing water heater replacement can seem daunting. It is a significant purchase for your home financially and otherwise. A new water heater must meet your household’s needs and must be perfectly installed.
It is also vital to consider other factors. Will a new heater will use less energy than your current model? Is a tank or tankless what you need? So, aside from researching size and brands, what other information should you know?
Decatur Tankless Water Heaters and More
If you are looking for a new water heater, start thinking about the kind of water heater right for your home. Your decision should consider your current energy source, lifestyle, and energy conservation concerns. We offer a variety of water heating units to fit your needs.
Storage tank electric water heaters are the most common type of water heater. A storage-tank water heater has a massive, insulated tank that stores hot water. The hot water flows out of a pipe on top of the water heater when you need it. Electric water heaters should also have a temperature and pressure-relief valve, opening if it exceeds a preset level. Electric storage tank water heaters range from fifteen to 120 gallons, depending on your needs.
Water heater tanks traditionally come with a 6 to 12-year leakage warranty from the manufacturer. Warranties vary with the make and model of the unit. A leakage warranty protects the homeowner against specific malfunctions during the warranty period.
Hot Water Heater Replacement Guide
Almost any home with running electricity will choose an electric water heater. However, homes with natural gas connections typically use gas water heaters.
- Gas Water Heater: If you have a gas water heater now, you may want to replace it with a new gas water heater.
- Electric Water Heater: An electric water heater is likely the best choice for homes powered by electricity.
- Tankless Water Heater: Are you looking for a more energy-efficient way to heat water? A tankless water heater could be the right choice for you.
- Heat Pump Water Heater: A heat pump water heater is over twice as efficient as an electric tank water heater.

What Size Electric Water Heater Tank Do You Need?
When you need to figure out what size water heater tank you need to consider how much hot water your household uses each day. We consider regular hot water usage to be a household with a clothes washer and dishwasher. And a home with high hot water usage as one with multiple washers, long shower takers, garden tubs, whirlpool spas, and oversized baths.
Also, the number of people in your household factors into sizing a storage-tank water heater replacement. Yet another factor is whether you choose a gas hot water heater or an electric hot water heater. Electric tank units and gas units heat water well, but to meet the same hot water demand, size electric models are larger than gas water heaters.
For up to two people with regular hot water demands a 30-gallon gas water heater tank or 40-gallon electric model will work. However, for two with high hot water using a 40-gallon gas water heater tank or 50-gallon electric water heater is best.
Households with three to four people should install 40-gallon gas hot water heaters or 50 to 65-gallon electric water heaters to meet regular demand. Families of three or four with high hot water demand need 50 to 75-gallon gas or 80-gallon electric heaters.
Five or more living together with regular hot water demand will need a 50 to 75-gallon gas tank water heater or an 80-gallon electric water heater tank. For five-plus people with high hot water usage, a 75-gallon gas heater or 120-gallon electric model will work.
