Buying a new water heater for your home is a big deal, so you need to make sure you have all your bases covered. In addition to checking the different types of heaters and their energy ratings, for example, you also need to take its size into account. But how exactly does size affect the overall longevity and performance of a new water heater? Royal American Heating & Cooling, the trusted HVAC maintenance company in the area, explains more here.
The Importance of an Appropriately-Sized Water Heater
You already know that heating water takes a significant amount of energy. In fact, it’s the second-largest energy consumer in North American homes. To ensure that your household has plenty of hot water available even during peak times–but without using too much water or energy–you’ll want to pick a water heater that’s just the right size for your home.
Royal American Heating & Cooling, the premier heating installation company in the area, will be more than happy to help you explore your options and decide on the water heater that best fits your home. We offer only the highest-quality heating systems from Carrier®, and they come in various sizes that suit every water heating need. What’s more, they come with outstanding warranty coverage that adds an extra layer of protection to your investment.
If You Choose an Over- or Undersized Water Heater
Is the water heater too big for your home? If it is, it will be heating more water than your home actually needs, and most of it will be lost through the tank walls and pipes. This means you might end up with energy bills that are higher than necessary. If your water heater is undersized, your home will never have enough hot water. It will run constantly in order to produce the necessary amount, putting stress on the system that may lead to serious performance issues and possibly even premature failure.
