Why would a house have two water heaters?
Greater efficiency can be achieved by installing multiple, smaller tankless water heaters throughout the home. Hot water is then drawn from nearby tankless appliances instead of being lead through the home’s entire plumbing system from basement to point-of-use.
Can a new water heater be defective?
Most standard hot water heaters have a warranty period of 6 or 10 years. With proper care they can last longer. However, by the tenth year, you should check it more frequently – or replace it. A defective or “lazy” gas valve or a faulty heating element can cause the water temperature to drop below set temperatures.

Is it better to have one large water heater or two smaller ones?
