Selecting a new water heater
There are numerous factors to consider when choosing a new water heater. For example, you might logically think that the larger the tank the better. But larger is of little use if it takes hours for the heater to deliver hot water after being emptied. That is why a heater’s FHR or “first-hour rating” is much more important than its capacity. It tells you the amount of hot water it can deliver in an hour, and it is stated by law on the Energy Guide label of any new water heater.

Should you install a “tankless” water heater?
A relatively new and highly-efficient option is a “tankless” water heater. These supply unlimited hot water on demand by heating it instantly. There are two primary benefits:
  • Hot water is not languishing in a tank, being kept heated 24/7 while you are not using it—or might not even be at home.
  • Depending on the age and quality of the traditional water heater to which you are comparing it, tankless technology is 30-to-80 percent more efficient.
Given these two benefits, a tankless water heater can easily save you as much as 50 percent of your hot water use and cost.
