Is Your Heating System Energy Efficient?
For most homeowners today, energy efficiency is a top priority. It’s all too easy for hot water use to add up quickly – spending a few extra minutes in the shower, or washing your laundry on a hot water cycle, or even leaving the water running while washing dishes can add up on your energy bill. When it comes to the energy consumption required for hot water, most homeowners are surprised to discover this accounts for 14-18% of their utility bill (according to the Department of Energy).
We at Stuart’s Plumbing recommend the switch to electric water heaters for optimal energy efficiency. Not only will it save you on your bills, but also of the two heater options available, gas water heaters are generally less efficient and more expensive. Because water is being heated continuously in a gas-heated storage tank, there is more heat loss.
