Water heating is typically the second-largest energy expense in your home, after space heating and cooling. It usually accounts for about 14% of your utility bill. If your water heater is more than 10 years old, it probably has an efficiency level no higher than 50%. An old water heater can operate for years at very low efficiency before it finally fails.
Choosing a Water Heater
One way to reduce water-heating costs is to replace your old tank with a new, higher-efficiency model. Our handy guide outlines the different types of water heaters and tells how to choose the one that’s right for your home.
