1. Determine the Flow Rate: Calculate Peak Hourly Usage: Reflect on your family's routine. Perhaps during the morning rush, multiple showers run simultaneously, dishes are being washed, and laundry machines whirl. List All Devices: Jot down all hot water devices in your home and note their flow rates, typically found in manuals or labels. Total the GPM: For instance, using a shower, faucet, and washing machine simultaneously might need 5.5 GPM.

2. Calculate Temperature Rise: Determine Incoming Water Temperature: This varies by location. Your local utility can provide this data. Determine Desired Output Temperature: Typically, 120°F is ideal for most households. Calculate the Rise: If your groundwater is 60°F and you desire your water at 120°F, your temperature rise is 60°F.

3. Select the Right Unit: With your GPM and temperature rise in mind, opt for a unit that meets or surpasses your requirements.

4. Consider Other Factors: Think about simultaneous usage, energy efficiency, and local climate to make an informed decision.

5. Consult with a Professional: Always reach out to a seasoned plumbing expert like us at Enviro Plumbing for precise recommendations.
