If your water heater tank is on the fritz, then it may be time to have a new one installed in your home. A bad Apex water heater won’t heat your water up as fast as it once did and pollute your water causing it be be useless. A brand new hot water heater will deliver you hot water on-demand especially if you decide to go with a tankless unit.
There’s lots of ways to save money in your home. You can always close doors and windows to keep the warm air from getting into your home which will cause you to use less of your air conditioning unit. Another thing that you can do, to save on water, is to only use your dishwasher when it’s full.
Environmentally Friendly Water Heaters
We live in such an environmentally friendly world these days. More and more people are conserving energy to help protect our planet and to save more money on energy bills. There is no better time to conserve energy than now. Hot water heaters use up a lot of energy especially older units. Electric units tend to take their toll on your electric bill just as gas units compile usage on your gas bill. Which type of Apex water heater is right for your home?
Types of water heaters:
Tankless – They are very energy efficient. The cost to operate this tank is a lot less than conventional units. They also last a lot longer, up to 20 years.
Gas – In order to have one of these installed, you must possess the correct source of natural gas. Lots of homes across the U.S. Are not equipped to handle gas water tanks.
Electric – This is a traditional model that’s in a lot of homes in the area. The selling point to these units are that they are not combustible like gas models.
In order to save more money through a new water heater, you should insulate the outside of the unit unless it’s a tankless one. You can purchase an insulation blanket as it’s going to save you at least $10 -$20 dollars a year more.
Water Heater Maintenance
When going away for a long period of time, be sure and turn the temperature down on your water heater. Turning the temperature down to 130%deg; F or less is what’s recommended for most home units. Removing sediment once a year from your hot water heater will improve on the heating efficiency. You need to take a bucket and fill it up with hot water from your tank. Doing things like this will save you money and time as you won’t have to wait around for a replacement.
