Top Rated Water Heaters For Mobile Homes


WeT HeaD KnowledgeWhen we think of water heaters, we usually think of the home or a commercial building but we overlook that mobile homes need water heaters too. Mobile home water heaters come in all different brands as well as styles. They also can range in price depending on what type you buy.

Here are three top rated water heaters for mobile homes. These water heaters are the perfect size and design suited for any size mobile home. The top three companies are Whirlpool, American and US Craftmaster. Let’s start with the Whirlpool Mobile Home water heater. Whirlpool 30 gallon Mobile Home Electric Water Heater is one of the company’s premier water heaters. The water heater has a slim design that is perfect for mobile homes because they do not have basements where these units can be installed like in module homes. The 30 Gallon Electric water heater uses 3500 watts and a 240-volt copper-heating element. With numbers like that you can rest assured that the water heater will be effective in heating the home properly.

The unit comes with a factory installed temperature and pressure relief valve and the unit is protected by 2″ foam insulation. This will help keep in the heat and will evenly distribute the heat throughout the mobile home. The number of family members that best work with this water heater is 2.

The unit is protected with a non-metallic, corrosion resistant drain valve and a Non CFC Polyurethane Foam that will protect the water heater from heat loss and will significantly reduce the energy costs of this unit.

The American 30 gallon Lowboy water heater also has heat traps installed into the unit, these will help the inlet and outlet to lessen the heat loss when the water heater is on standby. The dip tube of the water heater will bring in the cold inlet water deeper into the tank than other units. The design was created to help lessen the temperature dilution of hot water.

The last of the top three water heaters for mobile homes is the US Craftmaster 30 Gallon Electric Water Heater.

These units are efficient and are specifically designed to help you reduce your heating costs. The unit is foam insulated to help keep the heat in. The first hour recovery set at 90 degrees is 20.7 gallons. These top companies understand that finding a water heater that will suit your needs can be tedious and frustrating at times. That is why they use the most current technology to keep their designs simple and efficient. All water heaters are tested and certified before they are released to the public. You can shop around for water heaters designed for mobile homes but these are the top three units from three of the best companies in the business.

You won’t find any three water heaters better suited for the needs of mobile home installations. Have a qualified company or dealer technician do the installation. Mobile homes are set up a bit differently than other homes, plus if you attempt to install the water heater on your own, you may not do the install correctly and you will have to call a technician and it may void parts of the warranty.

    • Hi Gerri,
      You need to find a local plumber in your area that does water heater installations on mobile homes.
      Your best bet is to ask your neighbors who they use and if they are happy with them.
      We really cannot provide an estimate as plumbing rates and even parts vary widely across the country.

      I hope this helps you out,

  2. What is the difference between a mobile home water heater and a regular one? Can a mobile home water heater be used in a new residential home? My builder installed a Roth 40 gallon mobile home water heater. Is this adequate and will it last as long? Please advise. Contact me at Thank you so much.

    • Hi Nancy,
      I’m unfamiliar with the brand name but that is no cause for concern because there really are only a few major manufacturers and many times there are “label” brands for stores. The mobile home water heaters are generally designed with the space constraints of a mobile home taken into consideration, as well as the locations of the inlets and outlets. In addition there are special design considerations for gas water heaters in mobile homes with the side door access to the water heater and special vent thimbles for going through the roof as well.

      A 40 gallon would be adequate in most mobile homes unless you have an unusually large tub installed or other higher than usual hot water demand.

      Hope this helps you out,

    • Noritz America Tankless Water heaters are approved for manufactured home applications. They come in NP and LP models.

  3. Hi I am still a little confused as to what is the difference in a mobile home hot water heater and a regular one? We are rebuilding a mobile/manufactured home and it needs a new hot water heater. We want an electric one but I want to be sure we buy the right one. Can I buy a regular house hot water heater? Thank you for your help.

  4. I was wondering if there is a self cleaning gas water heater for the mobile home yet. I have hard water and there will definitely be sediment in my water heater! Should I invest in a water softener?
