80 Gallon Electric Water Heater Options

80 Gallon Electric Hot Water Heater Options

Many homes in Palm Beach County have 80 gallon electric hot water heaters installed. When these water heaters fail, you will find that finding a replacement 80 gallon water heater is almost impossible.

The reason for that is the National Appliance Energy Conservation Act of 2015. Water heaters manufactured after April 16, 2015, must meet the new energy requirements. This law applies to electric and gas hot water heaters. The gas hot water heaters are still available because the makers could make changes to the tanks that brought them into compliance. The 60, 80. and 100 gallon tanks are not efficient enough to meet the new energy requirements.

So what do you do if you have a large tank like a 60, 80 or 100 gallon electric hot water heater? If downsizing the amount of hot water available in your home is not an option then there are several ways to get the same amount of hot water and some that could save you money on your monthly electric bill.

Below I will list several options that you may be presented with by plumbers who are quoting your water heater replacement.

1. Hybrid Hot Water Heater

This is not a hybrid in the auto sense meaning part gas part electric. This is the hybrid between a heat pump and a traditional electric water heater tank. A heat pump uses the heat in the room to heat the water and it is boosted by a traditional water heater tank with a heating element. This is the most efficient option and it is perfect for South Florida. Your electrical costs will be as low as $100 per year operating the tank year round.

2. 50 Gallon Tank with a Tankless Booster

This option has a standard 50 gallon electric tank that is boosted up to 80 gallons with a small tankless water heater. This option is less expensive initially than the hybrid but it will cost more per year to run depending on your usage.

3. 50 Gallon Tank with a Thermostatic Mixing Valve

This option is perhaps the least expensive initially. We install a standard tank and then turn up the thermostat to high. The hot water is too hot for home use, but it is tempered by the mixing valve that allows only the right temperature water to your showers and faucets. This may increase your monthly bill because you are running the heater at a higher temperature.

4. Light Commercial 80 Gallon Tank

Many plumbers are installing a light commercial 80 gallon tank. This is very similar to your 80 gallon tank that is being replaced. This is kind of a loophole in the law. The drawbacks are that the tank is more expensive than residential tanks, the warranty is only for 1 year, and the installation goes against the spirit of the energy conservation law.

5. Tankless Electric

This option is generally not used to replace and 80 gallon tank because of the amount of hot water needed in the home. If you are doing a complete remodel, then this may be an option and you could use multiple tankless heaters for each bathroom or area. If that is the case or if the home is new construction then this may be an option for you.

In conclusion there is a new law as of 2015 and it does do away with residential 60, 75, and 80 gallon hot water heaters that are electric. There are many options, though, and some can save you greatly on your electric utility bill.

Call us today to replace that old 80 Gallon Water Heater.

Hybrid Water Heater Versus Tankless

Hybrid Hot Water Heater Versus Tankless

Tankless hot water heaters have been the choice of energy conscious consumers over the past 15 years. The new trend is hybrid hot water heaters that combine tankless technology with a tank. Which is better? I’m vote Hybrid/Heat pump style hot water heaters, especially in warm humid climates. Update: FPL weighs in on the issue and the Heat Pump Hybrid wins with them as well, read more here.

The tankless hot hot water heater is only on when there is a demand for hot water. This saves money over the traditional tank style heater. The old tank style can lose energy from heat loss because the hot water is stored. The disadvantage is that many tankless heaters may need to be installed near the point of use. If a whole house tankless is used, then you have issues with having to run the water to drain the water in the line before you get to the hot water. You can install a recirculating pump to eliminate this lag. However that requires and electric pump and possibly a tank. The tank is what we were trying to avoid with this installation. Another disadvantage is flow rate, many tankless hot water heaters have low flow rates and the tankless heaters with high flow rates that can handle a whole house tend to be very expensive.

The hybrid heat pump hot water heater use electricity to move heat from one place to another instead of generating heat directly. Therefore, they can be two to three times more energy efficient than conventional electric resistance water heaters. To move the heat, heat pumps work like a refrigerator in reverse.

Heat pump water heaters require installation in locations that remain in the 40º–90ºF (4.4º–32.2ºC) range year-round and provide at least 1,000 cubic feet (28.3 cubic meters) of air space around the water heater. Cool exhaust air can be exhausted to the room or outdoors. Install them in a space with excess heat, such as a laundry room or a garage. The heat pump also dehumidifies the space where it is installed.

The energy costs of a hybrid hot water heater are slightly lower or equal to the tankless style heaters.

If you live in a warm climate, the clear winner is the Hybrid Hot Water Heater (Heat Pump), if you live in a colder climate the tankless would be a great option.

Waiting too long for hot water? A recirculating pump can solve that problem

Waiting too long for hot water? A recirculating pump can solve that problem


Many large homes have the hot water heater located far away from the master bathroom. This causes you to wait for hot water since the lukewarm water in the lines must be drained out.

The solution to this is a recirculating pump. That used to require a line that was attached to the furthest fixture from the hot water heater. However, now there is a solution that allows a pump to be installed on the water heater and a small non-electric valve under the furthest sink.

Also, you can set the pump timer so that you are not wasting electricity when it is not needed.
