Water Heaters

Water heaters are responsible for heating your home’s supply of water and immediately supplying that hot water to fixtures and appliances. This guide will help you learn which size and type of water heater is best for your needs. It will also show you how to calculate the amount of water your family uses and how much space you need to allot for your water heater.
The Home Depot carries a vast selection of water heaters with the latest technologies and offers same-day installation.
We highly recommend having your water heater installed by a professional as it is a difficult and sometimes dangerous process.
Note: Nationwide energy-efficiency regulations set in 2015 impact people buying new or replacing old hot water heaters. Your old water heater model number may not be the same as your new model number, so make sure to purchase based on capacity size instead of model number. Additionally, the size of all water heater tanks have increased, while the amount of water that they hold has decreased. Measure the space you have available for your water heater carefully so you can accurately judge what size water heater will fit.

Tank vs. Tankless

Choose between a traditional tank water heater or a smaller, eco-friendly tankless water heater.
Type How it Functions Factors to Consider
Conventional Tank Stores constantly heated water.
  • Economical
  • Can be positioned in closet, basement or garage
  • Capacity ranges from 20 - 80 gallons
Tankless Heats cold water with a gas burner or electric elements as it passes through the water heater.
  • Requires larger up-front investment
  • Hangs on wall and frees up floor space
  • Excellent for part-time occupied residences
  • Can run out of water during heavy usage
  • Requires ventilation
Hybrid Heats cold water via an electrical heating element and heat pump that pulls in ambient air and extracts the available heat.
  • Magnesium anode rod extends life of tank
  • Heat pump delivers hot water up to 33% faster than standard electrical water heater

Tank water heaters are traditional water heaters that work with gas and electric fuel sources. They offer a large volume of hot water that can be dispersed to your entire home. Tank water heaters typically keep the stored water at a temperature near 120 degrees Fahrenheit at all times.
Tankless water heaters do not store heated water, but rather heat water only as it is needed. They also work with gas and electric fuel sources.
While they should be installed close to their most common point of use, they can service the whole house. Their temperature can be adjusted as often as desired, and they are popular for being eco-friendly alternatives to traditional tank water heaters.
Depending upon your family’s water usage, you may need more than one tankless water heater.
Hybrid water heaters use advanced heat pump technology to pull in the ambient air and extract the heat to warm the water. They also service the whole house.
