What wire size is required for a 40-gallon electric water heater?


Albert Smith, Expert of Electricians Service Team

For a 40-gallon electric water heater, the wire size typically required is 10-gauge copper wire, which can safely handle a 30-amp circuit. However, always consult the water heater’s user manual for the manufacturer’s specific recommendations and adhere to local electrical codes. The Electricians Service Team can provide expert assistance with water heater installations and electrical connections.
