How can I tell if a water heater is HUD-approved for mobile/manufactured homes?
Thursday, June 14, 2018
Water heaters that are rated by HUD for installation in a mobile home are marked with a sticker on the side, like the one shown below; and water heaters not rated for mobile homes have a sentence in the boiler-plate text panel that states the lack of approval, like in the photo above.
Mobile home rated water heaters are also recognizable because the hot and cold pipe connections are on the side of the water heater, instead of on top. But not all water heaters with side-mounted pipes are HUD-approved.
To learn about the requirements for a water heater to be HUD-approved, see our blog post What is the difference between a manufactured/mobile home water heater and a regular water heater?
