Buying a Water Heater
Why buy an energy-efficient water heater?
Water heating is typically the second-largest energy expense in your home, after space heating and cooling. It usually accounts for about 14 percent of your utility bill. If your water heater is more than 10 years old, it probably has an efficiency level no higher than 50 percent. An old water heater can operate for years at very low efficiency before it finally fails.
Choosing a Water Heater
One way to reduce water-heating costs is to replace your old tank with a new, higher-efficiency model. Our handy guide outlines the different types of water heaters and tells how to choose the one that’s right for your home.
