Saving energy helps to save the planet, which is one reason the government puts certain regulations in place regarding your water heater. These regulations can save you money as well, so watch this video to gain an understanding of the new water heater energy regulations.
If you’re looking at smaller water heaters, today’s units will come with more insulation so you can enjoy extra efficiency. Bigger units can no longer connect to the chimney, and instead you’ll have to vent them directly to the outside. A hybrid heat pump takes wasted heat inside the building and uses it to heat your water, but it takes up more physical space.
