The Inside Outside Guys ~ Water Heaters and Efficiency, Longevity

From The Detroit News | By Ken Calverley and Chuck Breidenstein

DETROIT, September 21, 2023 ~

The good news is you have choices. The bad news may be that, at some point, you’ll have to make one.

Since 1869, when Edwin Rudd invented the first automatic storage tank type gas water heater, domestic water heating has been an issue in housing.

Water heating occupies, on average, 18% of a home’s total energy use costing $267 a year.

The average home requires 80-120 gallons per day of hot water for everything from washing clothes and dishes to bathing.

Your choices in most cases are reduced to three types of units, a tankless unit, a conventional moderate efficiency tank heater, or a high efficiency tank heater with power exhaust.
