Tiny House Water Heater Options
There are many Water Heater Options when it comes to tiny house living. Whether you’re living a tiny house, RV, mobile home, a modern sized home or are wanting to live in something without a massive water heater tank, there are Water Heater Options for you! Tankless water heaters are fantastic and so far, with having ours installed for over a year, we have not had a single issue!
One of the first questions you’ll want to ask yourself when it comes to the water heater options is, “Do I want propane or electric for my water heater?”
Here are a few more questions you may want to consider:
- Do I want a tankless or tank water heater?
- This is the difference between on-demand water and letting the water run for a few minutes to heat up.
- How big of a water heater do I want?
- What type of venting situation will I have?
- How many gallons per minute do I want my water heater to be able to handle?
That all depends on what your situation is or what you want your situation to be.
There are many Water Heater Options, Mrs. Epic spent much time researching all of the options.
We ended up with a Rinnai V65EP 6.6 GPM Outdoor Low NOx Tankless Propane Water Heater, as seen on our house.
Tankless water heater options are awesome and can save so much space. Another benefit of tankless water heaters is that they tend to be more efficient as the water is heated only when needed. From all of the research that we did, we’ve concluded that the propane water heater options are going to be better at supplying instantaneous, on-demand water better than the electric and tank water heaters.
