I would gues it would be the same as having two water heaters.

Hi Headjack63,

 

In larger homes the solution to a shortage of hot water is to install a larger hot water heater

or, installing a second water heater.

 

Rather than installing them in tandem, most plumbers will separate the tanks using one for the bathrooms and the second for the laundry and kitchen supply.

 

This way you can shower at the same time you are doing laundry or using the dishwasher and you will not run out of hot water.


If your water heater is in the garage, a second can easily be installed and plumbed to the house.

 

This is a job best left to a professional plumber, get several estimates before you begin the job.

 

Mike,
