How Will the New Water Heater Standards Benefit You?

New energy efficiency standards are going into effect this week! What does this mean for you? Here are a few of the changes you can expect if you are in need of a new water heater this spring.

New Water Heater Standards:

  • Changes in Size – The new water heater energy efficiency requirements mean that many water heaters will need to be slightly larger in size. Homeowners may need to downsize their tank or relocate their water heater.
  • Initial Cost – Additional energy-saving technology makes the upfront cost of many new models more expensive than older models. However, they are designed to save consumers money in the long term.
