Do I need a new water heater St. Louis, MO

As the United States Energy Department estimates that Americans can substantially reduce the carbon dioxide emissions by switching to more energy efficient water heaters and other appliances, now’s a great time to consider your options. The latest models of gas water units consume less energy. If your water heater is on the brink of breaking down, first explore what type of fuel is needed to operate it.

Water heaters, fueled by natural gas are the most popular types of water heating appliances, as hot water generates faster, requiring less energy.

Another determinant to weigh before investing in a new water heater is whether your household requires a larger unit. If your home is comprised of a several bath tubs, a dishwasher, and other appliances that use water, a larger water heater maybe more suitable.

Most likely your water heater has conventional venting via the roof, leading to outside. This is an atmospheric water heater. Opt for an ENERGY STAR rated water heater, which are generally more affordable. Consult a St. Louis contractor, specializing in gas water heater and tankless units to determine which is best for your household.

As for selecting the best unit, most water heater experts deem performance as an integral criterion. For example, Navien manufactures high performance ‘green’, tankless water heaters.

In households, where space is a commodity, a tankless water heater is another environmentally amicable alternative. Tankless water heaters are energy efficient because water is heated on demand versus the gas water heater that stores hot water. Approximately the size of a medicine cabinet, many homeowners prefer the ability to save on space and the energy savings on the utility bill.
