Gas Water Heater Installation
Gas water heaters are very common throughout homes in the St Louis area. While they can be slightly more expensive upfront, most baseline gas water heaters are usually less expensive to operate on a monthly basis compared to baseline electric water heaters. Especially in Missouri where the price of natural gas tends to be less than the national average. To schedule a free estimate on a new gas water heater installation, call us today at (636) 926-0000.
Electric Water Heater Installation
While most baseline gas water heaters usually operate at fewer energy costs, there are some electric water heaters that carry a high efficiency. The efficiency of a water heater is graded by its energy factor, commonly referred to as its ‘EF’ rating. This metric measures the volume of heated water produced per day compared to the amount of fuel required to heat the water. The higher the EF is on a water heater, the more energy-efficient the water heater.
This is important to note because as technology continues to produce higher efficiency equipment, we are starting to see higher EF scores on electric water heaters. If you live in an area that does not have access to natural gas or prefer to have electric appliances, there are still high-efficiency options for electric water heater installations. To schedule a free electric water heater replacement estimate, call our office today at (636) 926-0000.

Energy Saving Tip For Home Water Heaters
When it comes to lowering your home’s energy usage, hot water heaters are often not very energy efficient. Most homes throughout St Charles County and St Louis County use conventional storage water heaters. These water heaters are designed to warm the water and keep it stored within the tank. However, over time, the water will begin to cool, making your water heater burner kick back on to maintain the temperature, thereby costing you more in energy consumption. This process is referred to as “Standby heat loss.”
Decreasing The Temperature On Your Water Heater
An easy way to decrease the energy usage of the water heater is by turning down the temperature at which the water heater maintains the water at. Almost every new water is set at 140 degrees as their preset configuration. The rule of thumb is for every 10 degrees you decrease the temperature on a water heater, you will save an estimated 3-5% in energy. By decreasing your temperature to 120 degrees (temperature recommended by the Department of Energy), you can save an estimated 5-10% in energy costs!
