About Water Heaters

In addition to electricity and plumbing, hot water heaters provide another common household convenience we often take for granted. Imagine having to take a freezing cold shower or wash dishes by hand until your fingers turn blue. Thankfully, most of us don’t have to because home water heaters ensure we can achieve comfortable water temperatures from all of our faucets. Ace Hardware can help you find the right water heaters to suit your needs. 

When selecting residential water heaters, keep in mind the amount of hot water your household functions on each day. Estimate using roughly 10-15 gallons of hot water per person in your household. For example, families of four will likely require a 40 to 60-gallon hot water tank.
