Hot Water Heaters in Tandem

Hot Water Heaters in TandemA Human Service company requested American Property Maintenance to add an additional water heater to the existing system because house was unable to keep up with demand. To keep installation cost down, APM installed a second 50 gallon water heater to run in tandem with the existing 80 gallon unit to generate 130 gallons of overall hot water storage. A new electrical breaker was added to the breaker panel and a dedicated wire was connected to isolate each heater. The objective was to maintain a constant water temperature of 110 degrees.
