Energy Efficient Water Heaters
The most energy efficient water heaters are typically heat pump water heaters and tankless water heaters.
Heat pump water heaters use electricity to move heat from the air or ground to heat water, making them more efficient than traditional storage tank water heaters. They have a higher initial cost, but they can save homeowners money in the long run on their energy bills.
Tankless water heaters, also known as demand-type or instantaneous water heaters, heat water on demand and do not have a storage tank. They are also highly efficient as they only heat water when it is needed, and they do not lose heat through standby energy loss. They also have a higher initial cost than traditional storage tank water heaters, but they can save homeowners money in the long run on their energy bills and have a longer lifespan.
It's also important to note that, both heat pumps and tankless water heaters have an Energy Star rating, which can help you choose the most energy efficient option.
