Conventional electric water heaters
Water heating can account for 14% to 25% of the energy consumed in your home. The good news is that
new energy-efficient water heaters use less energy and take less time to heat water.
Reduce your monthly bills by selecting a water heater that not only provides enough hot water,
but does so energy efficiently.
