A High Efficiency Water Heater Helps Your Family Save
Water heating is the second largest residential energy expense, behind space heating. Between 15% and 25% of your monthly energy expenses come from heating water for those showers, your laundry, the dishes.
A high efficiency water heater can cut that number significantly, saving you hundreds of dollars every year.
Don’t forget the cost of operation
Your water heater has two price tags:
- The sticker price.
- The cost of operation and energy use over the lifetime of the product.
A high efficiency water heater has a lower cost of operation and energy use over the lifetime of the product, and a tankless water heater even less.
When shopping for a high efficiency water heater, think about:
- The size and type of unit.
- The energy source (and the cost per unit of energy).
- Installation and maintenance costs.
What makes a new tank more efficient?
If your old, tank-type water heater is more than 7 years old , an upgrade will give your family better insulation, a more efficient heat exchanger, heat traps that reduce heat loss in pipes and cold water inlet pipes to improve overall heating efficiency.
If you upgrade to a tankless water heater, you get a more efficient technology that only heats the water you use. No energy is wasted.
