Access to hot water at the flip of a switch is a luxury most of human history can’t relate to – but these days we take it for granted. But as your family, and your needs, grow, you may find your plumbing system has a tough time handling the volume of hot water that’s asked of it. Try running multiple showers, the dishwasher, and the washer all at the same time, and you’ll soon see what we mean. In this post, we’ll discuss a few ways to help increase the amount of hot water available to your household.
Nobody likes a cold shower, so in that sense, we all like it hot. There are some alternatives to getting your entire hot water heater replaced. Rheem water heaters offer an auto booster that can be attached to a gas or electric tank. This addition can help increase water output by up to 45%.
Another add-on is the Rheem Mixing Valve. This allows you to increase the temperature inside the tank, then mix it with cooler water as it leaves the tank, thus increasing the overall amount of hot water that’s available.
If you’ve done all you can with your current water heater, and it’s just not making the cut, it may be time to upgrade. The Rheem ProTerra Hybrid model is the most energy-efficient water heater on the market today. This model uses about the same electricity as a 100-watt incandescent light bulb!
If hot water is your top priority, you might consider going completely tankless. New tankless heaters actually heat the water as it comes into your system, meaning you never run out of hot water. The systems are more efficient as well because they aren’t always working to keep the water in the tank warm. Rheem tankless heaters also take up much less space than a traditional water tank.
