Hot Water Heaters and Boilers

Like most appliances, water heaters have improved greatly in recent years. Not only are today’s models more efficient, but they’re also smaller, quieter, and easier to maintain than older versions. If your home currently relies on a 20+ year old water heater, now is definitely the time to think about upgrading. You’re likely throwing money away each year on excess energy costs.

Things to Consider Prior to Purchasing a Water Heater

The average life expectancy of a water heater is 13 years. When it comes time to replace your current heater, make sure you select one that will provide you with the highest amount of savings overtime. Never judge a water heater by it’s purchase price; instead, consider how much it will cost to operate the heater over the next 13 years. A few extra dollars at the time of purchase could help save you hundreds of dollars on your energy bills.

It’s also important that you consider what size of water heater you need. To do this, Arctic Heating & Cooling recommends estimated how much hot water your family uses during the busiest hour of the day (usually between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 8:00 a.m.). This is known as the “First Hour Rating.” The higher your first hour factor, the more hot water you’ll need to be created within one hour. If your family requires four 15-minute showers during a one hour period of time each day, you’re definitely going to want to consider a water heater with a large storage heater and powerful heat exchanger.
