 Below, you will find some very useful information on high efficiency water heaters.  

Energy Rating

Water-heating efficiency is measured by an Energy Factor (EF) rating. The higher the EF, the more efficient the model.Tanked high efficiency water heaters are among the most popular models, keeping water hot and ready in a tank that features higher levels of insulation than regular storage tanks. We recommend selecting heating units with a 0.93 energy factor powered by electric, or 0.64 if using natural gas. A.O. Smith has emerged as a prime leader in the high efficiency water heater industry. You can visit this industry leader’s website to learn more about high efficiency water heaters. Tankless or on-demand high efficiency water heaters do not require a storage tank and can be placed in much smaller areas. For the lowest in energy consumption, choose a 0.80 energy factor or higher. Hybrid water heaters and in-direct water heaters have even a higher energy rating which means more savings on your water heating expenses.

Standard Water Heater 0.67 Energy Rating
Tankless Water Heater 0.82+ Energy Rating
Condensing Water Heater 0.96+ Energy Rating
Hybrid Water Heater 0.98+ Energy Rating    



High Efficiency Tanked Water Heaters

How a WH-Vertex-works-Crystal Blue Plumbing Heating  Air

Conventional gas water heaters, although not as efficient, are simple and reliable and may be your best and least expensive option. Conventional water heaters have improved in recent years. They now have thicker insulation, motorized dampers to reduce heat loss, and an EF of at least .67. Most brands have a higher efficiency model available. While these models will cost more, they will incur less installation and hot water modifications to your water heating system.

Tankless Water Heater

Though tankless water heaters purchase price is more than normal tanked water heaters, you will find that a tankless water heater will have lower operating and energy costs which will offset its higher purchase price. for more information visit our tankless water heater page.

Condensing Water Heater

Just like conventional heaters, condensing gas heaters have a tank. But that’s the only thing similar. Instead of sending hot exhaust gases out the flue, which wastes energy, this water heater blows them through a coil at the bottom of the tank. Incoming cold water flows around the coil and collects most of the heat. That’s how condensing gas water heaters are so efficient (up to 96 percent efficiency). Even though it’s a storage tank design with “standby loss,” the increased efficiency more than counters the loss.

Hybrid Water Heaters

Hybrid water heaters or heat pump water

heaters work by pulling heat out of the surrounding air and pumping it into the storage tank. So when you are in a warm climate like the Sacramento area and you have your water heating system in your garage or attic space, the heat pump alone can save you money. The conventional heating coils come on only when the heat pump can no longer satisfy the demand. If you install the water heater in a heated room, it will suck some of the heat. However, if you heat the house with gas, you’ll probably still come out ahead.

Other Options for High Efficiency Water Heaters: Electric Point of use, Solar Water Heating & Systems or Electric Water Heaters.

High Efficiency Upgrades


You can get more hot water for the money, higher efficiency, energy savings, operational programmability, leak detection and automatic shut off of incoming water supply. One of our favorite options available is the operational programmability. Most new water heaters will only lose about 1/2-1 degree per hour, that’s an average of only eight to ten degrees per night. So why are we heating that water all night? Are you gone all day, while that water heater spends your hard earned money? Now you have the power to heat that water only when you want to. What ever water heater makes sense for you, our Crystal Blue Plumbing Heating & Air professionals offers customers industry leading expertise which allows us to match the water heating system that best fits your lifestyle, budget and energy saving goals. Crystal Blue Plumbing Heating & Air has more than 30 years of water heater experience.
