A purchase that protects the environment. If all residential gas storage water heaters less than 55 gallons sold in the United States were ENERGY STAR certified, the energy cost savings would grow to $970 million each year, and nearly 8 billion pounds of annual greenhouse gas emissions would be prevented, equivalent to the emissions from 750 thousand vehicles.

If you need a new gas water heater, consider an ENERGY STAR certified gas tankless water heater and start enjoying these benefits

  • Provides an endless flow of hot water.
  • Saves an extra closet’s worth of space compared to a gas storage water heater

Comprehensive air sealing, properly installed insulation, and high–performance windows work together to enhance comfort, improve durability, reduce maintenance costs, and lower monthly utility bills.

By using less energy for heating, cooling, and water heating, ENERGY STAR certified homes deliver approximately 20% savings on annual utility bills. Over the 7 to 8 years that a typical family lives in a home, you can save thousands of dollars in maintenance cost.

It’s not just the amount of insulation; it’s the quality of installation that makes all the difference. Proper installation includes careful placement to eliminate gaps, voids, and compression; complete air barriers that prevent air from bypassing the insulation; and building techniques that minimize heat flow through framing. This ensures consistent temperatures throughout the house, reduced energy use, and increased comfort.

Insulation rebates:                  up to $2050
