Electric Water Heaters

If your home’s water heater is on its last leg, it’s time to shop for replacement. Planning ahead lets you make your choice carefully instead of rushing through an emergency purchase.

Gas water heaters make up the brunt of the market, but electric water heaters come in at a close second. If your home is hooked up to gas lines, a gas water heater is probably the right choice. The initial investment is a bit higher, but the cost of natural gas is much lower than electricity, meaning your ongoing energy bills will be significantly lower with a gas water heater.

Electricity is the best viable alternative to natural gas if this fuel isn’t an option, whether because natural gas doesn’t run to your home or because it would be impossible to run a flue through the roof to vent the gas water heater’s combustion fumes. Here’s a little more about electric water heaters to help you choose the right model.

How Electric Water Heaters Work

As with any storage water heater, cold water enters the tank at the bottom as you consume hot water to shower, wash dishes or do laundry. As the water enters, an electric heating element warms it up. When demand increases, a second heating element activates as well.

Efficiency

To keep costs down as much as possible, choose the most efficient electric water heater you can. The energy factor (EF) on the label indicates how well the water heater converts electricity into heat for the water in your home. Electric water heaters usually range from ER 0.75 to 0.95, indicating that these units are 75% to 95% efficient.

Capacity

When it comes to water heater size, capacity is much more important than physical dimensions. To choose the proper size, you need to consider how many bathrooms your home has and how many people live there. Use this information to pick a water heater based on its storage size (typically 40 to 80 gallons) and recovery time. Also consider the first-hour rating (FHR), which is the amount of hot water the heater can supply per hour at peak usage. Don’t worry about sizing a water heater yourself; the contractor you purchase the appliance from can help you with this process.
