Water Heating

Choose natural gas for water heating and get more hot water using less energy. 

Hot Water at Your Fingertips

Consider this - Water heating can account for 14 to 25% of the energy consumed in your home. Choose natural gas for your water heating needs—it’s the clear choice for saving time and money.

Top reasons for choosing a natural gas water heater:
  • Water heats twice as fast as electric
  • Quicker recovery, bringing you more hot water faster
  • Uses less energy and cost half as much to operate
  • Helps lower your carbon footprint, it’s the greener choice

Energy Efficiency

Here’s a shopping tip: When choosing a water heater, study the Energy Factor (EF) label to determine the overall efficiency. The EF depends upon how quickly the energy source (gas, electric, etc.) heats the water, how much energy is lost when the water heater is idle (only storing hot water), and how much energy is lost as the unit cycles on and off.

ENERGY STAR® Water Heaters

If your water heater is 10 years or older, consider replacing it with a new ENERGY STAR certified water heater.  Water heaters can cost households up to $600 every year in energy costs.  
If all residential water heaters sold in the United States were ENERGY STAR certified, the energy cost savings would grow to nearly $10 billion each year, and more than 100 billion pounds of annual greenhouse gas emissions would be prevented.  This is equivalent to the emissions from nearly 11 million vehicles.

Did You Know?

Set your water heater thermostat to the lowest temperature that provides you with sufficient hot water. For most households, 120°F water is comfortable (usually about midway between "medium" and "low" settings).

Hot Water On Demand

Hot water - for your showers, baths and a variety of household activities. It’s a daily necessity, so why not choose the best water heating system for your needs. Natural gas water heaters cost less and heat water twice as fast as electric. Plus, as the cleanest burning fossil fuel, natural gas is the energy efficient choice, too. Explore the types of water heaters available, and choose the one best suited for your needs.

Types of Water Heaters

Storage (Tank) Water Heaters

By far the most common type of water heater used in this country. Water is kept hot and ready for use at all times in insulated storage tanks.

Tankless Water Heaters

Sometimes called "on demand” water heaters. Water is heated only on demand, providing a continuous, energy efficient supply of hot water. Take a look at these additional benefits: lower energy bills, space savings, design flexibility, and fewer worries (the life expectancy of a tankless water heater on average is 20 years or more, much longer than conventional models.)

Solar Water Heating Systems

Switching over to a solar water heating system isn't as complicated as you may think, and it’s not just for homes located in sunny climates. Customers installing qualifying solar water heating systems in conjunction with a natural gas water heater may be eligible to receive rebates. To find out more about this program, determine equipment eligibility, and obtain a rebate application,  check out the solar water heating page or call 855-743-1603.
