It works great. I'm never out of hot water. I went with the biggest one because of how far north I live. I was worried my breaker box couldn't handle the amount of electricity it needed but those fears were unfastened as well. I will never own a tank heater again.

The house is 2843 Square feet Is this unit big enough to operate 3 showers

Asked by: Dropkick
Yes. But remember during cold days it will be a challenge. When it’s hot weather they don’t have much of a struggle. Remember you should always have a professional size it. If you don’t know what that means then call the manufacturer!
