There are some tell-tale signs to look for that will help you to know when the time is right to invest in expert Utah water heater installation from Superior.
Keep in mind that a water heater is a big energy user in any home, second only to your heating and cooling system. Fortunately, today’s models are much more energy-efficient than their predecessors: allowing your family enough hot water while reducing costs. Your Superior technician will help you choose the make and model that best fits your lifestyle as well as your budget.
Capacity: Buying a hot water tank that is too big for your needs is a waste of money, pure and simple. Your Superior technician will perform a “capacity test” that will determine exactly which size tank will give you the best FHR (First Hour Rating), ensuring you will have the hot water you need during peak times while minimizing waste.
Efficiency: A water heater’s “Energy Factor” (EF) is the standard by which energy-efficiency is measured. Most gas heaters have an EF anywhere between 0.50 and 0.80: the higher the number, the more energy-efficient the appliance. Heaters that come with a thick layer of foam insulation will also provide more efficiency.
Cost: All of today’s water heaters come with Energy Guide labels that will help you to determine the cost-effectiveness of each appliance. Take the time to check these labels carefully and then discuss the information with your Superior technician. Price is a big concern for everyone, but it doesn’t make sense to get the cheapest water heater if it will just cost more to operate. So when looking at prices, it is wise to keep an eye on long-term operating costs as well.
