How to select a water heater

  1. Know the necessary fuel type – electric, natural gas, or propane (LP) gas.
  2. Determine the gallon size you will need. A plumbing contractor can help.
  3. Measure the maximum height and width space for your new water heater.  Remember to also check your access door space for clearance.
  4. Choose a warranty model that’s right for you.
