Whether your old water heater unit has quit working, or you are just looking to be proactive in replacing it, there are lots of choices to make when choosing a new water heater. Considering these five things can help you find the right one for your home and hot water needs.

1. Household Water Usage

Determine how much water your family uses and make sure to find a unit that will accommodate those needs. Tankless water heaters can supply hot water on demand, so they provide a nearly unlimited supply for a very low cost.

2. Power Source

There are several types of power sources for water heaters. Natural gas, propane or LP gas, and electric are the most common options you will find. It is generally easiest to stick with the same type of water heater that you had previously.

3. Energy Efficiency

If you are looking for an energy-efficient choice in water heaters, you might consider a tankless model. If you prefer a traditional style unit, look for models with good energy efficiency rating or integrated smart features that allow you to control them (and their energy usage) remotely.

4. Cost

Cost will most likely play into the water heater you decide to purchase. Size, features, and warranty can all affect the price. Be sure to compare energy costs, too, since you may save enough on utility costs to make up for a slightly more expensive and energy-efficient unit.

5. Space

Your selection may also be limited by space. If the unit will be placed in an enclosed space like an attic or closet, or even under a sink, you will need to know exactly how much room you have to work with.
