Looking For Seattle Hot Water
Are you looking for a new Seattle water heater? FurnaceUSA is here to help – we supply and install new water heaters throughout the King Countyarea. Common types of gas water heaters we install are tankless and regular tank water heaters.
The Benefits of A Tankless System
The benefits of a tankless heater is that you use less gas than a conventional hot water tank. Tankless heaters also last longer – sometimes up to 25 years. Considering that a conventional hot water tank only last 10 years sometimes it’s a pretty good value. The downside for systems without a tank comes when you consider how much they cost – sometimes 3 or 4x more up front compared to a tank.
Those factors make the most important part of your decision to choose a hot water tank is more about how long you will be in the house. If your only going to be in the home for another 5 years or so – you will not get your money back out of a tankless – however – if you are going to be in the home for 10 years the tankless will pay for itself.
Seattle Hot Water Heater Brands
There are a variety of common brands of water systems on the market here in Washington– Bradford White, Rheem and AO Smith are a few of the more common ones. All those are good quality brands and will serve you well.
How To Size Your Heating Unit
People often wonder what size of heater they should put in – a 50 gallon water systen or a 40 gallon heater are the most common sizes people install. As a very general rule of thumb – 3 or 4 people in a home should get a 40 gallon heater and 4 to 5 people need larger tanks like a 50 gallon.
Factors That Affect The Size Of The Water Tank
Of course there are a variety of other factors at play like the age of the occupants, if there is a huge soaker tub in the home and the likelihood that everyone will shower simultaneously.
