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 manufacturers 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 to me?

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

  • Higher priced units – up to 35% more expensive.
  • Larger units – average 2” taller and 2”wider
  • May require more complicated installation
  • Possible significant home remodeling costs if your water heater is located in a small space like a closet or attic.

These new regulations will however improve the efficiency of water heaters resulting in energy savings for the homeowner.

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 32 years old or older need to seriously consider replacing it now, before the regulations go into effect and costs go up.

What do I do next?

AP Plumbing recommends you book a consultation with one of our experts who will answer any questions you may have about the new regulations, evaluate your current water heater and provide you with options on the next steps. Then, if you decide you want to install before the new regulations take affect we’ll reserve your water heater from our inventory.

We’ve been installing water heaters for 32 years. We can answer all of your questions, tell you about interest-free financing, schedule an appointment that’s convenient for you, and professionally install your new water heater for years of reliable service.

  • Excellent, as always. Replaced faucet cartridge (that was jammed in), cleaned interior and exterior of faucet with vinegar, replaced washers in drain, and leveled drain pipe.

    Andrew was by far the most professional, thorough and friendly service provider I have dealt with since I bought my home in 2005. He explained everything that he was doing to me and why he was doing someone a certain way rather than another. He treated me, as a woman, with the respect and brains that should be required of all service providers but seems to be lacking. Women! Call AP Plumbing if you want to be treated with respect.
