Home Energy System Upgrades That Save You Money.

Gearing up for the changing seasons often means making updates to your home energy systems, which is especially important if you haven’t maintained, repaired, or updated old systems in a long time.  While it can be a bit time consuming and may require a small initial investment, making updates to your home can save you a lot of money and hassle in the long run. Here are a few updates you can make that will help you save more money over a period of time.

Upgrade your Old Water Heater

Hot water is one of the highest energy expenses in a home, and most homeowners spend over $500 per year on hot water. Of course, you can make personal efforts to decrease your hot water usage by taking shorter showers, and washing your dishes by hand, but this won’t save you much if you have an old clunker of a water heater.

Water heaters that are more than 10 years old use up a ton of energy and only about 43% of the energy being used actually goes towards heating the water. That means the rest of the energy is being expended on things like keeping the tank hot. In short—an old water heater is a huge money pit. One way to save money (and be able to shower longer than 3 minutes) is to simply update your old water heater. Consider any of the following newer options:

  • Gas Water Heater
  • Gas Condensing Water Heater
  • Electric Heat Pump Water Heater
  • Tankless Water Heater
  • Solar Water Panel Heater

As you can see, there are a few different options out there for upgrading your water heater. The type of water heater you select will depend on your individual circumstance and your wants.
