Water Heaters

When purchasing a new water heater look at the unit’s Energy Factor (EF) rating. The (EF) factor ranges between 0.88 and .96. Look at purchasing a unit with an (EF) factor of at least 0.92 for a 50 gallon unit and at least 0.94 for a 40 gallon unit. You may also consider wrapping the water heater in additional insulation and insulating the water pipes at 2 feet from the tank. The water heater temperature should be at the factory set point of 120°F.
