Choosing an All-Electric Water Heater
I am looking for an electric hot water heater for domestic hot water. I understand that there is a balance between the volume (in Gallons) and how quickly the hot water is heated while it is being used.
I am also in an area with very low overnight rates (1/10th of daytime rate) which for me suggests a larger one may be a good idea where at least some volume is heated at low rates. Is there some way to model that?
And if not, what is the run of the mill (reliable, quiet) water heaters out there? Family of 4, with children who think they are fish, so sizeable hot water use for baths and showers. (The one joy in cold climate, so not going to come down too hard on that one). Is 80G big enough?
