If your house has been using the same water heater for many years, now is a good time to consider putting in a new system. Even if there doesn’t seem to be anything wrong with your aging water heater, chances are strong that you’re paying more to run it than you should. Call our water heater specialists and ask about putting in a high-efficiency water heater that will lower your utility bills for many years to come.
What Type of Water Heater Is Highly Energy Efficient?
The easiest answer to this question is “a new water heater.” Any water heater that’s over 15 years old is probably already starting to suffer from a decline in its energy efficiency because of wear and tear. But a new water heater will likely work at greater efficiency than your old system did even when it was first put in. The technology of water heater manufacturing has improved significantly over the last decade, so newer systems are better at their job than ever before.
However, there are some specific water heater types that are particularly energy efficient:
- Tankless: These water heaters don’t store water at a constant temperature, but rather heat up the water as it is needed. This means they use significantly less power to run—plus they won’t run out of hot water!
- Hybrids: Hybrid water heaters use a heat pump to move pre-existing heat from the air to warm up the water. Moving heat consumes less power than directly creating it, making these systems great energy savers.
- Solar: The energy from the sun is free—and in Florida it’s extremely abundant! Installing a solar water heater is one of the best ways to cut down on heating costs around the year. Solar water heaters also have long lifespans, giving you plenty of time to pay off the installation and rack up the savings.
