2010 EPA energy efficiency standards for water heaters

By heating water only when it's needed, ENERGY STAR qualified gas tankless water heaters cut water heating expenses by 30%... other standards can cut energy by 50%.

EPA projects that new 2010 energy efficiency standards for water heaters should save $10 billion in energy over 30 years, reports the New York Times.

The new water heater efficiency rules are likely to spur manufacturers toward heat pump electric water heaters and condensing gas water heaters, and would raise the cost of the appliances by about $120.

Upgrading to energy efficiency models is a "pay as you go" solution for climate change ... and energy use reduction. And that's a good thing. It's manageable.

EPA estimates consumers would save $143 in energy costs over the life of the water heater.
