Water Heater Efficiency


Many homeowners do not understand that an old water heater can be one of the most costly appliances in your building to operate. Just as with heating systems and air conditioners, today's water heaters are more energy efficient than ever. State-of-the-art electronic controls, much better insulation and lower cost of operation are just a couple of the main reasons to replace your old hot water heater with a modern one.

Before You Replace Your Water Heater


While considering hot water heater replacements, it is essential to understand the equipment. Here is some info about water heaters that is vital to think about when making a purchase:

• In most cases, the least expensive water heaters you can get are the most costly to operate.
• Nearly all water heaters have a life expectancy varying between from 8 years to twelve to fourteen years, depending upon the type and home usage.
• Heating your water is generally the third most costly energy expenditure in your home, usually taking up about fifteen percent of your energy budget.
• Hot water heaters that are from nine to twelve years old probably have an efficiency of 50% or less.
• Many people buy a water heater based upon the size of the tank. But what's more critical is the "peak-hour demand capacity" or the first hour-rating (FHR) provided on the Energy Guide label.
• The water is continually being heated in the tank, so energy is used even if the hot water faucet is turned off This is known as standby heat loss.
• State-of-the-art, more energy-efficient storage water heaters can significantly reduce standby heat loss, which signifies that they are less costly to run.
