On the left is an electric heater. A large electrical wire will be coming from near the top of the heater. This wire could look similar to an extension cord or small grey garden hose.

Determine the Profile of Your Water Heater

The table below will help you determine the profile of your heater. Yes, you may have to break out a tape measure, but you don't have to be exact. The measurements below are for brand new heaters. In 2015, new manufacturing codes required extra insulation in water heaters so now they are slightly larger. If your measurements are close, rest assured you're selecting the correct profile. Call us if you need help at (615) 767-0541.
