Heating Water in Small Spaces

Have you thought about downsizing? A large household may be necessary for big families, but for single adults, childless couples or a small family of three may not need so much space. Whether youre planning on purchasing a tiny house, going on the road in an RV or are looking for a traditional bungalow, cottage or one bedroom condo, reducing your square footage can help reduce your utilities, lower rent or mortgage costs and put more money in your pocket for other priorities. At Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Pittsburgh, we enjoy helping our residential and commercial clients find new ways to improve their water efficiency. Have you wondered how youre going to heat water in your tiny home or apartment, without going over budget? Here are some tips on how you can have the convenience of hot water no matter how small your space.

Choose a Compact Water Heater Tank

Compact water heater tanks work just the same way as conventionally sized units, theyre just much smaller. Rather than a 50 or 60 gallon holding capacity, compact tanks hold around 30 gallons. This is a great size for smaller families or single individuals who like to take hot baths and long warm showers, but dont want a full-size water heater taking up valuable real estate. Plus, theyre more affordable and new models can be extremely energy efficient.

Go Tankless with an On-Demand Water Heater Unit

If youre looking for something that takes up even less space, consider switching to a tankless water heater. These on demand models provide instant heating, without the need for a holding tank. Theres no need to wait for the water to reach the desired temperature, because it will automatically warm the water to right setting. Tankless water heaters come in a variety of styles and dimensions, but most can neatly fit beneath a counter or behind a cabinet so it can stay out of the way but accessed with ease.

RV Water Hears for Tiny Houses

Tiny houses and cottages are becoming more popular, and for good reason. These stylish, compact homes provide just enough room, while providing an opportunity to live rent or mortgage free. Some individuals opt for an RV water heater placed by the kitchen sink, and one in the bathroom near the sink and shower stall or bath, where you need it most.
