Water heating is the 3rd largest energy user in the home.
On average, it accounts for about 14% of your utility bill. This is another investment that requires an informed decision. Capacity, efficiency, and cost are among the factors to consider. Our skilled plumbers are experienced in learning about your needs and taking into account these factors when recommending the best water heater for your home.
The first-hour rating (FHR) is the amount of hot water in gallons that the water heater can supply in an hour when the tank is full. This is the most important factor in correctly sizing your water heater. Tank size must also be considered because you don’t want to spend money to heat more water than you need.
The energy efficiency of a storage water heater is indicated by its Energy Factor (EF). The higher the EF, the more efficient the water heater. However, when you consider fuel sources, higher values may not mean lower operating costs . You should also look for a tank with at least 1.5 inches of foam insulation and an Energy Star rating.
You may want to save money with a less expensive water heater, but don’t ignore the operating cost. You may save money at the cash register but pay more to the utility company.
