High Efficiency Water Heater Options, Including Heat Pump, Condensing and
Tankless Water Heaters
Heating water in your home can account for up to 15% of your home's
energy usage. With the advancement in hot water system available in today's
market, there are many high efficiency water heaters that will use 10-50%
less energy than a standard model, saving you tremendously on utility bills.
Storage High Efficiency Water Heaters:
These water heaters are very much like a standard water heater with the
exception of better insulation, heat traps and more efficient burners.
They can increase your efficiency by up to 7%, which can result in an
annual savings of $30. Over the lifetime of the water heater, this can
add up to over $300 in savings.
Tankless Water Heaters:
Tankless water heaters are extremely efficient because they heat water
only when you need it. When hot water is needed, cold water actually enters
the tankless water heater and passes over a heat exchanger. This warms
the water immediately to the temperature you have set. With a tankless
water heater, energy usage and expenses can be reduced by up to 30%, or
a savings of more than $100 per year for the typical family. They are
small and compact, have a longer lifespan than standard models, and are
an overall great option if you're searching for a high efficiency
Condensing Hot Water Heaters:
In condensing hot water heaters, heat and combustion gases have much farther
to travel, usually via a spiraled flue, before they are excreted. The
result is that the water vapor produced by these gases condenses back
into the water and transfers more heat. Condensing high efficiency water
heaters can save your family more than $100 per year, or 30% of your water
heating energy usage.
Heat Pump Water Heaters:
A heat pump water heater simply takes heat from the air surrounding the
water heater and uses it to heat your water, with the help of refrigerant,
a compressor and evaporator, and condenser coils. They use electricity
as their fuel source and can save the typical family almost $300 per year
compared to a standard water heater. It can be up to 60% more efficient
than a standard electric water heater.
