New Efficiency Standards Mean Big Changes in Water Heaters
What Does That Mean For You?
The federal government is mandating new efficiency standards for water heaters, effective April 16, 2015. The changes to the Energy Factor requirements certainly will increase efficiency … saving energy and lowering your operating costs!
At the same time, the new water heaters will have a more sophisticated design. What does that mean for you?
- The new design – which may integrate blowers, fans, condensers, and other components – makes a professional contractor the best choice for safe and proper product selection and installation.
- In some cases, the new water heater may have to be re-located to fit properly, operate safely, or mitigate noise.
- In rare cases, the performance of the new water heater in terms of hot water deliverability will be less than the model that was replaced. You may need to consider a different size or alternative solution to meet your family’s hot water needs.
As you can see, this is one of those areas where it’s best to turn to a professional contractor to get the best advice on selecting your next water heater as well as to install it for maximum performance and efficiency … and safety!
