Reminder – new water heater requirements go into effect April 15th. So if you’re looking to replace your home water heater, now is the perfect time! The new mandates require higher energy efficiency ratings which brings big changes to you and your family.
Some of the changes that affect you as a consumer are:
- Higher priced units – up to 35% more expensive.
- Larger units in size
- More complicated installation requirements
- Possible significant home remodeling costs if your water heater doesn’t fit in your space
