A 40 gallon water heater is too small for your needs. Unless you have a way to install a second circuit for an additional water heater that may not be an option. If you cannot install the second water heater, (series or parallel is a user option), then a larger water heater is the only solution, other than installing a second water heater without connecting it to a power source and using a pump to maintain temperature in both of them.

: I have a 2 bath house that has 1 40 gallon electric water heater. I have no problems in the summer months, but in the winter I can only manage about 1 to 2 showers back to back before the hot water is cold. I need enough hot water for 4 showers each morning. What are my options? Is there a way that I can increase my storage, or do I need to add an additional water heater? If I add an additional heater, should it be in series or in parallel?

: Thanks.
