How to Determine Tankless Water Heater Size for Optimal Efficiency
If you’re thinking of installing a tankless water heater, you have to keep in mind that available units come in different sizes and features. Tankless heaters from noted plumbing companies like Capital Plumbing & Heating Ltd., which serves Edmonton and nearby areas, come in two major types: gas-fired and electric heaters, and each one has its pros and cons. Aside from the two major heater types, though, homeowners also need to take note of proper sizing. Electrical units come in smaller sizes and with less heating capacity. A general rule of thumb is that for one or two persons, an electric unit makes much more sense. If more than two persons would require hot water regularly, gas-powered tankless heaters are the better choice.
