How a Water Heater Booster Can Increase Your Hot Water Output

Post by Mike Henry, Rheem® Plumber Support Technical Trainer and Master Plumber

There are some ways to get more hot water out of an existing water heater without upgrading its size. You can raise the temperature up from the factory setting of 120° to 140° and then add a mixing valve that mixes the overheated water with cold water to make that stored hot water go further. There are some downsides to that option though so I’d recommend a water heater booster in many cases for long-term cost savings and reliability.

If you have a standard electric or gas tank, there are a number of things we can do to increase the amount of deliverable hot water from the simple to the complex. One of the ways to do that would be to simply increase the set-point of the thermostat so that the water stored in the tank would be hotter and would therefore go farther.

Growing up on a horse farm, we didn’t call in tradesmen; we just learned to do the work ourselves – electrical, mechanical, carpentry, plumbing, machinery, all of it!

As a young adult, I joined the U.S.

What a year! Despite the challenges that 2020 brought, plumbers were still able to get the training they needed. We welcomed over 19,000 attendees whether they participated in in-person training or online training once we had to close our Innovation Learning Centers due to COVID. If you were one of the many plumbers that attended – THANK YOU! We are looking forward to having thousands more this year.
