Having warm water in your home is one of those things you take for granted. That is, until you don’t have it. Nothing can be as frustrating as getting ready for a warm shower or a hot bath only to discover that your hot water heater isn’t working properly – or not at all. And, while most homeowners understand the need to replace a broken water heater, they don’t all understand the benefit of actually updating your water heater before it’s actually completely shot.
The first thing to keep in mind is that water heaters use energy in your home, and a lot of it. The older they get, the less efficient they become. And, when your water heater becomes less efficient, then it becomes more expensive. The sooner you update your water heater, the more money you’ll save in your home’s utility expenses.
New water heaters are more efficient – period. But, there’s also the choice to update your water heater to something that is very efficient. By looking at the Energy Factor rating, you can determine just how much money (and energy) you can conserve.
Another benefit of newer water heaters is that they recover hot water more quickly, which means that you no longer have to worry about getting in the shower right after someone else in your home does. The latest models fo water heaters can replenish hot water fast and with this energy, which means no more fights about who gets ready in the morning first.
New hot water heaters also come with another benefit that many homeowners forget: They save space. Many of the newer tankless models of hot water heaters are surprisingly small, which means that by installing one you can actually create more space in your home and garage. Some of these tankless versions can even be mounted to a wall, thereby freeing up a good amount of space – perfect for extra storage!
