Options for Standard Tank Electric Water Heaters

Storage capacity

Electric water heaters come in various storage capacities, typically ranging from 20 to 80 gallons. The size you choose will depend on your household’s hot water needs.

Energy efficiency

Look for units with a high Energy Factor (EF) rating, indicating greater energy efficiency. Some models also have insulation and heat traps to reduce standby heat loss.

Recovery rate

The recovery rate refers to how quickly the water heater can replenish hot water after it’s been depleted. A higher recovery rate means the unit can produce hot water faster.


Electric water heaters usually come with warranties ranging from 6 to 12 years. A longer warranty often indicates a more durable and reliable unit.

Determining the Right Size and Brand

Household size and hot water demand

Consider the number of people in your household and their daily hot water usage. Larger households typically require a water heater with a larger storage capacity.

Space constraints

Measure the available space in your utility room, garage, or wherever you plan to install the water heater. Be sure to choose a unit that fits comfortably within the available space, leaving enough room for maintenance and servicing.


Determine your budget for both the water heater unit and installation costs. Keep in mind that more expensive units may offer better energy efficiency and longer warranties, potentially saving money in the long run.

Brand reputation

Research different water heater brands and read customer reviews to find a reliable, well-regarded manufacturer. Popular electric water heater brands include Rheem, A.O. Smith, Bradford White, and GE.

What Makes One Water Heater Better Than Another?

Energy efficiency

A more energy-efficient unit will have a higher EF rating, which can translate to lower energy consumption and utility bills.

Durability and reliability

High-quality components and materials contribute to a longer-lasting and more reliable water heater.


A longer warranty typically indicates a manufacturer’s confidence in the product’s quality and durability.

Recovery rate

A higher recovery rate means the water heater can produce hot water more quickly, which can be beneficial in households with high hot water demand.

I switched to Service Force after a large chain company was a nightmare. Hendrick quoted me a much lower price for a way better job and a lot faster service. I would give them ten stars if I could.

Switched out my old leaking water heater. They were professional and great to deal with. They also really knew what they were doing so I was glad I hadn't gone to a big box store.
