Electrical Tips for choosing box-type water heater timer
1. Check load rating is 30 Amps
or more for safety. Most 240V water heaters are 3500, 4500 and 5500 Watts divided by 240 Volts = 14.5 Amps, 18.8 Amps, and 23 Amps.
2. In southern states, outdoor installation in direct sun will shorten life of timer.
3. For easy wiring, match clock voltage with water heater voltage 
4. Timers listed on this page are safe for 1 residential water heater. 
water heater timer in attic

Water heater timer in attic is not convenient

Tips for choosing & installing water heater timer
1. Re-setting timers after power outage is inconvenient, especially when located outdoors after thunderstorm.
2. Check timer has enough on-off periods per day or per week
3.It is difficult to reset timers located in remote locations requiring flashlight, for example in attic or cluttered utility area.
4. Put timer at eye-level


In-wall timer is more difficult to install, but gives easy access, and adds value to home.
