In response to Re: Need to specify 2 Hot Water Heaters
: 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.

Here we are worrying about 1.6 gallon tolets and 2.5 gpm shower heads, and the rich are heating 150 gallons for an 80 gallon whirlpool and five baths. Click on water heaters on the top of this page.
