Water Heater Boosters: What They Are And Why You Need One

Picture this: you’re enjoying a nice warm shower when all of a sudden the water turns ice cold. We’ve all been there and it’s not a great place to be. The average American uses about ten gallons of water per-shower, whereas the average water heater is about 50 gallons. If one shower taking 20% of your hot water doesn’t sound appealing to you, you may consider buying a water heater booster. 

What’s a Booster?

A booster is a small accessory device that is installed directly on the water line of or over the water heater. It’s designed to improve just about every aspect of your water heater: pressure, capacity, and efficiency. Be it gas, electric, or even solar, a booster acts as an all around improvement to your water heater no matter it’s variety. 

Improved Water Health 

When water is stored for too long in a heater it can become a hotspot for bacterial growth, including Legionella, which causes a rare respiratory conditioning known as Legionnaires Disease. A booster can help you keep such harmful microorganisms out of your home by allowing your water heater to act at higher temperatures that kill these bacteria before they can wreak havoc on your home water.

Increased Tank Volume

A lot of people would say that quality matters more than quantity. Is it too much to ask for both? With a water heater booster, you can effectively increase the size of your tank and have more high quality hot water available to your home. More is the name of the game with boosters: more power, more water, more convenience. 

Easy Installation

A booster is much easier to install than a heater proper. Once you decide to get one, one quick call to a professional is all it takes. They can have it installed and have you operational in record time.
