Studies reveal that the average household uses more than 63 gallons of hot water each day. There’s no doubt that having hot water where and when you need it is important. What happens if your water heater cannot keep up? Could you benefit from having more than one appliance installed? Here are some signs to look for.
There is a Long Wait for Hot Water
This often happens when your point of demand is too far away from your water heater. In that case, you must wait until hot water has had a chance to flow from your tank to your faucet. Depending upon the distance, it could be several minutes before you start getting hot water. In the meantime, all the water that goes down the drain is essentially wasted. A point-of-use water heater can be located near your sink, shower, or bathtub, and will virtually eliminate your wait.
You Have Simultaneous Users
You can’t always stagger your hot water usage. If you must run the dishwasher during your shower, (or have more than one person who normally bathes at the same time), chances are you may run out of hot water. You could even run out if you have multiple people that need to take back-to-back showers.
You Often Run out of Hot Water
Large families or homes with a new baby may use more hot water than others. Multi-generational households and ones with separate living quarters such as a basement apartment or “mother-in-law suite” may use more hot water as well. Those who with a high-than-normal demand could definitely benefit from having more than one water heater.
