Big Changes to Water Heaters

Big Changes To Water Heaters You Need To Know About

The U.S. Department of Energy has put into effect new regulations that require all National Water Heater WebPhotomanufacturers of water heaters to meet a higher energy factor (EF) rating. Based on the new requirements, there will be significant changes to water heaters manufactured after April 15, 2015. This includes gas-fired, oil-fired, electric, tabletop, instantaneous gas-fired and instantaneous electric. Tankless water heaters already meet the new requirements.

How does this affect me?

Some of the changes that affect you as a consumer are as follows:

  •   Higher priced units – up to 35% more expensive.
  •   Larger units – 2” taller and 2”wider, and in some cases units may be even larger.
  •   More complicated installation requirements
  •   Possible significant home remodeling costs if your water heater is located in a small space like a closet or attic.Why do I care?

    According to manufacturer’s suggested service life, the average lifespan of a water heater is about 8-12 years. Homeowners with water heaters 10 years old or older need to seriously consider replacing it now, before the regulations go into effect and costs go up.
