6 years ago, we built a new house. There were me and my wife, Betty and our 3 teenage kids. I thought about putting in 2 water heaters and done some checking about costs. I found out it was cheaper to have 1 larger heater. So I installed a 58 gal. electric. Never ran out of hot water. Dish washer, clothes washer and three teenagers can really use the water.
We built a new house last year and I installed a 52 gal electric water heater. The older two don't live with us now, but they manage to bring the laundry home once a week. But we still have enough hot water.
I put a meter on our water heater back years ago, to see what the kilowatt usage was. And at the time the electric water heater was costing me about $25. a month. That was when the kids were little. Just guessing, that price has probably doubled.
I think I will meter our new heater to find out.
