Add 1 to "miscellaneous additions" if you find yourself running out of
hot water.  Another solution would be to upgrade to a quick-recovery
and/or high-efficiency water heater.

high-efficiency heater.

If there is a whirlpool tub, use a 50-gal. or higher gas or electric heater
as a minimum.

After totalling the boxes, use the following chart to determine the size of
water heater necessary.

GAS
4 or less: 30 gallon water heater  
5 to 7: 40 gallon water heater  
8 or more: 50 gallon water heater  

ELECTRIC

5 or 6: 50 gallon water heater  
7 or 8: 65 gallon water heater  
9 or more: 80 gallon water heater
