Water Heater Installation

The Department of Energy recently announced new standards for residential water heater efficiency effective April 16, 2015.  Click here for details of the announcement.

The new standards will affect your next new water heater, so you don't have to immediately buy a new water heater. But if your current water heater isn't meeting your hot water usage needs or requires frequent repairs, it may be time to replace.
Things to consider when buying a new water heater:

  • Number of people living in your home (hot water demand)
  • How well your old unit supplied your hot water needs
  • Gas vs electric vs solar cost considerations
  • Cost comparison of models with different levels of efficiency
  • Warranty lengh
  • Initial cost of unit relative to annual operating cost
  • Tank vs. Tankless
  • Installation location vs unit sizing
  • Code compliance considerations
