Think About a New Water Heater This Winter

We at Consumers Energy Management spend a lot of time advising residents in the Toronto area about heating in the winter. That includes furnaces, ductwork, indoor air quality and more. But one big part of the heating system in a home is the water heater. When you’re preparing your home to handle the cold winters around here, you cannot forget about your water heater’s efficiency. If your water heater is costing too much to fix, then it might be time to think about getting a new one.

Whether or not you have any particular brand loyalty, choosing a new water heater deserves some diligent time and effort. Replacing a water heater as quickly as possible is never the best way to go about purchasing a new part of your HVAC system. Give yourself time to pick the perfect water heater for your family’s needs, rather than waiting until your old water heater completely shuts down.
Once you’ve started looking, keep a few questions in mind that you want answered.

Gas and Electric Water Heaters

The first thing to determine when you go on the market for a water heater is to make sure it’s a gas or electric heater. Purchasing an electric heater when you need a gas one would be a costly mistake. Now that you know which kind of heater you need to look for, you can start browsing different brands. Certain brands might have a better reputation than others. Research brands and look at Energy Star ratings — those indicate how much energy the water heater can save.
Some retailers are required to sell certain brands by contract, so keep that in mind when you go out shopping for a new water heater. Prices can vary greatly between models, so pick a ballpark price you are willing to pay and try to stay near that.

Tankless Water Heaters

Residents now have the option of buying a tankless water heater. These water heaters cost more initially, but often result in energy savings down the line. Though standard water heaters are tried and true, the tankless models are an upgrade, and may be worth it if you have a family of four or more. With bigger homes, tankless water heaters save enough money to make up for the higher cost of purchase and installation. Their estimated lives are now almost twice as long as that of a standard water heater.
Many new versions of water heaters are built to save energy, which lowers your utility bills. Standard water heaters generally suffice, but those who emphasize saving money on energy can look through the models that have emerged in the last few years.

Take Your Time

When you notice that your water heater costs more to fix than it’s worth, it’s time to consider getting a new one. If you wait until it’s too late, you’ll feel rushed and you may not make the best decision. A water heater can last for many years if you get the right model and take care of it properly.
