What Do the New Water Heater Requirements Mean for You?
Mar 9, 2015Are you due for a new water heater? Now is the best time to contact bluefrog Plumbing + Drain for an upgrade! New energy-efficiency standards will be required of all residential water heaters sold after April 16, 2015. Here are a few things to keep in mind as you get ready for the new standards.
How will the new standards effect your new water heater installation?
- New Capacity Considerations - Changes in the new water heater unit sizes may require some homeowners to down-size the gallon capacity of their water heaters, install multiple units, or make other modifications.
- Increased Initial Investment - While the new water heaters will save you money in the long-term by making your home more energy efficient, there will be a larger upfront cost.
- Potential Relocation - Since the unit sizes will differ, your water heater may need to be relocated. Our professional technicians can help you determine the best option for your home based on applicable space and the amount of hot water you need supplied.
