There Are Many Options For Manufactured Home Hot Water Heaters


Like foundation homes, manufactured homes require hot water heaters; however, manufactured home hot water heaters are usually smaller than standard units because even double and triple wide homes have less space available to house them. With this in mind, there have been many different hot water heaters developed that work economically and supply ample amounts of hot water while still fitting into compact spaces.

One great resource for any home improvement supplies and equipment is Sears. While Sears does not specialize in accessories for modular homes and mobile homes, you can count on the quality of the products they sell, and many of them are ideal for the needs of the owner of a manufactured home. The Kenmore 40-gallon Home Gas Water Heater is an upright unit that will not likely fit into a single wide home, but will work well in a home that has space for it. It is convertible from natural gas to propane gas, which can be an important feature for some, depending on where their trailer or mobile home is located. This unit works well with a variety of manufactured homes, from Karsten to Clayton and more. It is priced at $519.99 and is available at sears.com. You can also find it in Sears stores, which are located all over the country.

At Ace Hardware, you will find the Reliance 40-gallon Electric Mobile Home Water Heater. This modern appliance is designed to fit in tight spaces, standing only 46 inches high, but it is highly efficient. It features a glass lined tank to help prevent chemical deposits and is covered by a 6 year warranty. If it is time to purchase a replacement tank for your manufactured home, you will be wise to consider this aftermarket addition. You can find it at acehardware.com or in one of the many stores across the country. It is item number 4235495 and sells for $289.99.

One of the best options for economical use and for space saving is a tankless hot water heater. These units are small enough to use in any size manufactured home, and they save energy and water by heating only the water you use, and heating it instantly. If you are considering a remodeling project or major renovations, a purchase like this could save you a lot of money in the long run. The Powerstar 12-kw 240 Volt Point-Of-Use Electric Tankless Water Heater measures only 12.25 inches wide, 3 inches deep, and 6 ½ inches high. It provides an endless supply of hot water without having to wait for a tank to refill. This is a great unit for any manufactured home from Kit Homes, Silver Crest, Golden West, or any other top name builder. It is available at The Home Depot for $229.00. You can order it at homedepot.com or purchase it in one of their many stores across the nation.

The Reliance 40-gallon Natural Gas Hot Water Heater, for sale at The Tool Workshop Wholesale House, includes a valve to switch from natural gas to propane, making it ideal for mobile homes and manufactured homes. This tank is designed specifically to meet all HUD regulations for manufactured homes, and is an ideal replacement if your current hot water heater is beyond repair. It is priced at $755.99 and can be ordered at thetoolworkshop.com or you can call 888-589-0074.

For manufactured homes that are really strapped for space, the Atwood Water Heater is a viable option. It heats up in less than 30 minutes after filling, but it is only a 6-gallon tank, so it is not well suited to a home with a large family. You can find this electric unit at pplmotorhomes.com. PPL Motor Homes is one of the best known suppliers for discount hardware, equipment, and supplies for RV’s and mobile homes, offering quality products at discount prices. This unit sells for $279.90 and is product number 80-1346. You can order online or call 800-755-4775. They are located in Austin, Texas, but they deliver all over the country.

The professionals at State Water Heaters have a lot of ideas about how best to ensure that you have hot water when you need it at an energy cost you can afford. For example, the Premier Hybrid Electric Hot Water Heater is twice as efficient as a standard electric heater and takes up less space. You can learn more about this product at statewaterheaters.com or you can call 800-365-8170. They are located in Ashland, Tennessee.

Of course, another great resource when shopping for supplies for your Skyline or Fleetwood manufactured home is Lowe’s. At lowes.com, you will find the Mobile Home 30-gallon 6-Year Gas Hot Water Heater. It is insulated by one inch of non CFC foam that is environmentally friendly and makes the entire unit more energy efficient.
