How long will it take my water heater to heat up?

Have you ever ran out of hot water while in the shower? I bet that was not how you thought you were going to start your morning. A cold brisk shower may get your eyes wide open, but it may not put you in the best of mood to tackle your day.

If running out of hot water is a constant threat in your home, I’m sure you have often wondered just how long you will have to wait before feeling secure enough to take a nice long relaxing hot shower.

Electric Water Heater

We cannot live without electric … as least not comfortably. Unfortunately, an electric water heater will take up to 1 hour and 20 minutes to get your hot water tank to full capacity.

Gas Water Heater

Gas ranks first as an energy source for heating water. A gas water heater will have a full 40 gallon tank of hot water ready for you in 40 minutes or less.

Solar Water Heater

Go green with solar power! It will power that solar water heater, but will only heat it as quickly as electric normally would.

Tankless Water Heater

This is the perfect answer for some families, in order to help keep their households running smoothly. A tankless water heater heats the water as you need it. You won’t be waiting for a full tank to heat up before you can take your turn under the showerhead.

Waldman Plumbing & Heating has been helping the residents of Lynn, MA and the North Shore area for over 100 years with their water heater service and installation.
