Why Does Sizing a Tankless Water Heater Matter?
Sizing a Tankless Water Heater
Why is Sizing Important?
Tankless water heaters are on-demand water heaters. This means that they do not store hot water like traditional water heaters. Because of this, it is extremely important to have the proper size equipment for your home.
You have to take a few things into consideration in order to get the right size tankless water heater for your home.
Tankless Water Heaters: Temperature Rises and Flow Rates
Your climate plays a big role in the sizing of your tankless water heater. The temperature rise that’s required to heat your water to say 110 degrees will be different if the incoming water is 60 degrees vs. 40 degrees.
The more the equipment has to work to achieve the desired temperature, the bigger burner and more capacity you need.
You also need to take into account how many bathrooms you have in order to find the right flow rate.
Sizing charts are becoming more popular with tankless water heaters to help homeowners decide which size is right for them.
