Borderline Finance Question - Need help buying a new electric water heater
this is a borderline finance question since the goal is to save money in the long run by being efficient.
We are looking to replace the electric water heater for our new condo.
we were looking into Tankless but we dont have enough circuits (100 Amp only) to support it. Also the hybrid ones seemed like a good option but we dont have enough space to install it.
So the only option is to use a electric water heater. we dont have gas in the condo , its all electric
i was wondering if you guys had any options what i could look at ? some specifications i was looking at is
- 40 gallon capacity since its just the 2 of us
- something that is very efficient, maybe even has a setting to turn the temp down when we are not at home almost 12 hrs a day
- i was told there are water heaters that sense a leak and turn the valve off automatically to avoid a huge mess
can you guys please help me out with a few recommendations i could look at ?
I plan on getting quotes from local plumbers and also from amazon local services. Has anyone had any experience using amazon services to find a plumber ?
