Energy difference in 40 gallon vs. 50 gallon water heater?
We are changing our gas water heater to an electric water heater. Our electric co. gives a better rebate on a 50 gallon heater with a 12 year warranty, but hubby is concerned about heating 50 gallons of water since it's only the two of us. (FYI, we will no longer have any gas at this house, hence the conversion. Getting rid of propane heat and going with a heat pump system.)
Any advice on a 40 gallon vs. a 50 gallon as far as energy savings? Any other advice you want to offer would be appreciated too.
