Reasons You Should Upgrade Your Water Heater
Reasons You Should Upgrade Your Water Heater in Carlsbad
If your water heater is more than 15 years old, leaks around the bottom or has frail pipes, it may time to start thinking about an upgrade. You will save money on heating bills while earning tax deductions, and you will help save the environment by increasing energy efficiency.
- Heating Bills: According to the EPA, water heaters that are more than a decade old cost homeowners between $400 and $600 annually. The older your unit becomes, the less efficient it will be, which means you’ll pay more money to maintain the same level of performance. By replacing your old unit with one that is Energy Star rated, you could lower your heating bill by as much as 50 percent each year.
- Tax Deductions: Another reason to upgrade is the tax benefit. In an effort to encourage more people to be environmentally responsible, the government offers a number of tax breaks to households that increase the energy efficiency of their homes.
- Energy Efficiency: Not only do newer, energy-efficient water heaters reduce your heating costs, but they also reduce damage to the environment. In fact, studies show that households that install an Energy Star rated water heater may reduce their CO2 emissions by over 2,000 pounds per year. Imagine the impact on global warming if every household made this upgrade.
