Replace your old energy-wasting water heater to boost your savings today

A standing storage tank water heater more than 10 years old is at risk of corrosion on the inside. When your water heater becomes corroded enough, water begins to leak out. That could destroy the carpeting and furniture you have in your basement, or ruin what you have stored. Your insurance company may not cover the cost of damage.

Consider the following when you research new water heaters:

Capacity: Assuming you use electric as a heating source, families of 1-2 should have at least a 30-gallon water heater available. A family of 3-4 should have at least a 50-gallon water heater. And families of 5 or more should have 80 gallons or more. These capacities fall when you use propane or natural gas to heat your water.
Physical size: Your water heater needs to fit in your basement. When you can’t fit a storage tank water heater, tankless water heaters are available.
Recovery rate: This measures how fast heat gets transferred to your water.
Standby loss: Every water heater loses heat while it stores your water. Standby loss measures how fast that happens.
Yearly operating cost: Every water heater comes with a label that explains how much the water heater costs to run annually.

Water heater models available to Atlanta homeowners

While you’re most used to seeing storage tank water heaters, many types are available. Here’s a few you may encounter as you consider your choices:

Heat pump water heater. This type takes heat from the air to heat your water. Refrigerant makes this possible. Electric heating elements exist to provide backup heating. Heat pump water heaters are twice as efficient as electric storage tanks, and they cool the air around them a little also.
Indirect water heater. This water heater gets its heat indirectly from your furnace, boiler, or heat pump. In an immersed coil installation, a storage tank contains a heat exchanger fed by your furnace. In a tankless coil installation, the water-heating coil remains inside your furnace, and you have no storage tank. Indirect water heaters are very efficient.
Gas tankless water heater. With these, water gets heated once when you open your hot water tap. They don’t heat and reheat your water like a storage tank water heater. There is no standby heat loss. They’re also compact, and they can cut your water heating costs by up to 45%.
Solar water heating system. With this type of water heater, you still use a tank. However, it can meet up to 80% of your home’s water heating needs. A flat plate collector sits on your roof, circulating antifreeze between itself and your storage tank water heater. Electric heating elements do the job when the sun’s not shining. It’s costly to install, but can pay for itself in the next 8-10 years because of its great efficiency. Energy tax credits may also be available for their installation.
