Need to specify 2 Hot Water Heaters
Posted by Larry Link on February 16, 1999 at 12:19:47:
We need to specify( 2) 75 gallon hot water heaters, what do you recommend? Both will be gas fired.
The first will be mounted in the attic/eaves area, with a maximum height of 5 feet in the room. It will
feed the upstairs laundry and the master bath, which includes a 80 gallon whirlpool tub, shower and 2
lavs.The distance to the furthest fixture is 20 ft.The second will be mounted in the basement, and will feed
the rest of the house, including kitchen, 2 upstairs baths (tub/shower combo), powder room guest bath
and basement bath(should be used infrequently). The height of the mech room is 8 ft, so height is not an
issue. The furthest fixtures will be 70 ft away, so a recirculating system may be required.

What do you recommend? Thanks.
