What Size Hot Water Tank Do I Need?

Hot water tank replacement costs vary depending on the type and size of the tank you buy. There are many factors that go into deciding what size hot water tank you need. The size of your home, the number of bathrooms you have, and the types of fixtures are only part of the decision. How much water you use, how many people live in your home, and whether or not you have teenagers or members who take frequent or long showers are also considered.

Knowing how big of a tank your home needs is important because a tank that is too small will not provide sufficient hot water but a tank too big will waste energy. For example, if your home requires a 50-gallon hot water tank, but you purchase a 40-gallon hot water tank, you will always run out of hot water because your tank does not hold enough to cover your needs. This general guideline will help you when choosing the right size of tank for your home:

Number of Bathrooms 1 to 1.5 2 to 2.5 3 to 3.5
Number of People in Your Household 2 to 4 2 to 6 2 to 6
Minimum Recommended Tank Size (in gallons) 20 50 50
Maximum Recommended Tank Size (in gallons) 40 60 60

Hot Water Tank Barrie

Hot water tanks are affordable and practical ways to have hot water in your home. We specialize in supplying and installing Performance series hot water tanks.


Hot water tanks are reliable and nearly instant supply of hot water, that is fairly maintenance-free. They are also one of the most budget-friendly water heating solutions.


Not as energy-efficient as tankless systems, because of standby energy losses. A tank system uses energy to keep itself warm. If you tend to use a lot of hot water in a short period of time (multiple showers at once or back to back for example), the water will lose its heat, and it will take 20-30 minutes for the water to reach a comfortable temperature.

Hot Water Tank vs Tankless Water Tank

A hot water tank stores hot water in a large tank. Hot water tank replacement costs range in price between $800 to $1,000. Tankless water tanks use heating burners to warm the water so it is heated on an as-need basis. Tankless units cost significantly more than hot water tanks but they last longer. Tankless water tanks also use up to 50% less energy than hot water tanks.
