HOW TO CHOOSE A WATER HEATER

Most families take hot water for granted. It's what comes out when you turn the faucet marked "H." But let "H" produce cold water-- when Dad's under the shower or Mom's elbow-deep in dishes-- and you have a major domestic crisis. Fortunately not many things can happen to the average heater.
