3 Benefits to Installing a New Water Heater

Monday, January 21st, 2013

If your water heater has stopped working, your immediate reaction is probably one of dismay. However, there are several benefits to replacing your water heater that can help turn your mood around. At Modern Plumbing Industries, Inc. (MPI), we’ve been offering complete water heater installation and water heater replacement in Orlando for years.  Here are some of the benefits of replacing your hot water heater.

Efficiency

Almost without exception, new hot water heaters offer customers greater heating efficiency. Water heaters are generally given an Energy Factor rating that measures their efficiency. This rating describes how much actual hot water is produced per unit of fuel consumed. The higher the energy factor, the more efficient the water heater is. New gas-fired water heaters typically have an energy factor rating of .5 to .7. By investing in a new water heater, you’ll be able to take advantage of that efficiency.

Hot Water Recovery Rate

Two other important metrics for water heaters is the First Hour Rating which measures the availability of water during the period of highest demand. The Recovery Rating is also important because it describes the water heater’s ability to replenish hot water after it has been depleted. If you have an old hot water, you may have been taking cold showers if you got in after the rest of your family. With a new hot water, it will likely have a better recovery rating which will give you access to more hot water at the times when you need it most.

Space Savings

If you’ve decided to upgrade to a tankless hot water heater, then you will probably have more available space in your storage area. Tankless water heaters are small, rectangular units that can be mounted on a wall. If that’s the case, then you likely have a much larger area for storing other items besides your water heater.

If you need water heater installation or water heater replacement in Orlando, call Modern Plumbing Industries, Inc. (MPI). We have experience working with many different types and brands of water heaters. We would love to help you pick out a unit that matches your home’s needs and your budget. Call us today.
