What is the 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 and Rheem water heaters have emerged as a prime leaders 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.

High Efficiency Tanked Water Heating

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.

Condensing Water Heating

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 heating or heat pumps

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 Roseville 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. We can help you save money when your water heater is ready for an upgrade by recommending the best high efficiency unit for your family’s specific needs and handling every detail of the new installation.

 

 

Common Water Heater Problems


Hot water not staying hot- Most likely the heating element in the water heater is not allowing the proper mixture of hot and cold. Some other possibilities could be a bad thermostat. Have a Roseville professional take a look at the water heater and consider replacing the water heater, depending on age.

No hot water- If you have no hot water coming from your gas water heater. First check to make sure your water heater pilot light is lit. Confirm your water heater gas shut off valve is in the open position. On an electric water heater, make sure the red reset button is pushed in. This could have popped out because of faulty controls. Common fixes for no hot water are replacing thermo coupler, Gas valve or upper or lower thermostats on an electric water heater.

Pilot Light won’t stay lit- If your gas water heater pilot light won’t stay lit it most likely is your thermo coupler. Be careful of drafts or wind gusts that might have blown out the pilot light. Relight the water heater and monitor the pilot light. If it goes out again, call a

Roseville Plumber and have the thermo coupler replaced.

Leaky T & P Valve- You’re T&P Valve (temperature and pressure relief valve) is an emergency relief valve usually on the top or top/side

of the water heater. The T&P is there to keep your water heater from exploding due to much water pressure or water temperature. A leaking T&P can mean your water heater is not operating properly or simply could be a bad or faulty T&P valve. Either way I recommend contacting a water heater specialist as soon as you can.

Leaky Drain Port- There’s nothing more annoying than a leaking drain port. Most of the time in Roseville California, it’s caused by hard

water corroding the port. Sometimes, it’s only a faulty port. In extreme water heater cases it could be caused by to cold water, which means an element isn’t working correctly. Remember not to over tighten the drain port. If it persists have a water heater expert take a look at your water heater.

Water Heater Smelling Bad- Water starting to smell bad like a rotten egg or sulfur is usually a bad anode rod. Have a professional take a look at your water heater and replace the anode rod if your water heater is less than 5 years old. If your water heater is 5 years old or greater consider replacing your water heater.

Noisy Water Heaters- When your Roseville water heater starts making noises it usually means your water heater is at the end of its life. If your water heater is older than 5 years you probably should consider replacing. Noises are usually caused by sediment at the bottom, broken anode or element or a pressure situation. A water heater with a pressure problem might require a expansion tank. Have a water heater expert examine water heater to determine cause of the noises.

Water all around Water Heater (leaky water heater)- Suddenly you notice water on the floor all around your water heater. First check the top of the water heater to see if the water supply lines are leaking down to the water heater.

Next, check to see if the T&P valve is in the open position allowing water to escape. Last take off the front panel to locate water coming down the tank. Unfortunately if the water heater is leaking from the tank it’s over. Shut the emergency water shut off valve off and replace the leaky water heater at once.

Running out of Hot Water- Nothing worse than being in the shower all soaped up and run out of hot water. This could be an undersized water heater or too much sediment build up, limiting the amount of actual heated water. On electric water heaters, the element could be going bad. I recommend having a Roseville Hot Water Heater expert evaluate your hot water usage for proper water heater recommendations. * Note: Tank-less water heater never run out of hot water.

Takes too long to get Hot Water- If you turn on your hot water and start to read a book while you wait for the water to get hot, something is not right. In California we often flirt with drought conditions and wasting water is not good. Most of the time pipes are not insulated well or at all. Major issues could mean your plumbing system is undersized. Don’t fret there are many options available. Talk with our Roseville water heater experts about possible options to get your hot water quicker. *Note: That Tank-less Water Heaters do not get your hot water to you quicker, they just do not run out of hot water.
