Should You Replace Your Water Heater?
Water heating is typically the second largest energy expense in your home. Heating your water typically accounts for about 14% of your energy bill. An old hot water heater can operate for years at very low efficiency before it finally fails.
Many homeowners wait until their water heater fails before shopping for a replacement. Purchasing and operating a hot water heater can vary greatly depending on the type and model selected, as well as the overall quality of the installation.
