Do I Need More Than One Water Heater?

In gauging the amount of hot water that your home or business needs, it might occur to you that one day, the amount of hot water produced by your water heater simply isn’t enough. And while that might sound like a small issue for some, it can be rather annoying when there’s a large demand for hot water without the resources to actually provide for it. Below are a few things to keep in mind when considering if a second hot water heater is for you or not.

Why Do You Think You Need It?

There’s a difference in thinking you need something and actually having a need for it. In many cases, people tend to believe that another hot water is the answer if their current one is small, and a larger replacement is a little out of budget. While this might seem like a solid solution, there’s not much of an advantage in two small units. Realistically speaking, it’s likely the better, safer, and more sound investment to purchase and install a larger water heater — simply because one new unit can, for many uses, perform better than one old unit aided by a newer unit.

How Much Use Will They Get?

For larger homes with multiple bathrooms constantly in use, it might make sense to order and have a second water heater installed. This is of course, under the assumption that much of the water will be depleted from one rather quickly, with the need for more shortly behind it. If this is the case, then it may make sense to have a second water heater, or something that can supplement the loss of water as it’s used.

Is Your Building For Multiple Families?

If you’re the owner of a building and are looking for a solution to multiple people constantly using the hot water, a second tank might be the option that best suits your needs. This way, each floor or family has access to a water heater specifically for them, and there’s a good chance that their supply of water will likely never run cold.
