Water Heater Efficiency Affected By Insulation

Touch your water heater. Is it warm? Then you need insulation for the best possible water heater efficiency. It’s not expensive to add insulation to your water heater and doing so will save you money in water heating costs. Depending on your usage of hot water, insulation for your water heater might result in savings amounting to about 4 to 9 percent.


What You Should Know Before You Purchase A Tankless Water Heater

Replacing your existing water heating system with a tankless water heater is a fuel-efficient and cost effective choice. Tankless water heaters, also called demand or instantaneous water heaters, heat water as needed. No hot water gets stored in an internal tank, so there is no standby heat loss from hot water that hasn’t been used yet. This saves money by eliminating unavoidable energy loss.


Remember To Apply For A Tax Credit If You Installed A New Energy-Efficient Water Heater This Year

If you installed a new energy-efficient water heater in your home in 2011, you may be entitled to a credit on your income taxes under the U.S. government’s Consumer Energy Efficiency program. Water heating can consume as much as 25 percent of the energy used in your home, so a high-efficiency model will use much less energy while saving you money on your annual utility costs.
