Engery Efficient Water Heater
Most people don’t pay an attention to their Water Heater or know where it is located in the house. Your water heater uses about 14-25% of your electric bill. I call it the Rodney Dangerfield of appliances because it typically “gets no respect.” It is constantly working even when you are not at home, on vacation and even at night when you are sleeping. Just keep in mind how much you actually rely on having hot water on demand. Everyday!!! It heats the water to the set temperature and then shuts off. As soon as the temperature dips below the current setting, it turns back on. This is the reason for it using so much energy. Before you purchase a Water Heater for your home, it’s important to know how energy efficient it is. Usually the most energy-efficient water heater models or systems are more expensive. However, if you purchase an energy-efficient model, you may save more money in the long run on your water heating bills than if you purchase a less efficient model. I purchase all of our water heaters online because they are cheaper than purchasing them from the major home improvement stores. Here is where I order them from: Water Heater Online.
At an average $0.11 per kWh for electricity, the average American family spends around $1.30 per day for their hot water needs. This equates to $475 every year. If you could improve the efficiency of your water heater by just 25% (a very attainable goal), you could save $125 every year. If you are considering a home remodel or adding another bathroom to your house, ask your contractor about a new Energy Star Approved Water Heater.
