Water heaters account for almost 20% of the energy used in the average home—more than a refrigerator, dishwasher, clothes washer, and dryer combined.

Natural gas tankless water heaters heat water as it’s needed and for as long as you need it, helping to save 25%-50% in water heating costs over a tank-type heater. Because these water heaters don’t have a tank, they are less susceptible to leaks and they have a more compact design. An ENERGY STAR® certified gas tankless water heater uses a secondary heat exchanger to use about 9% less energy than a conventional gas tankless unit.
Natural gas storage water heaters use a large, insulated tank to heat and store hot water until it is ready to use. The size of the tank determines how much hot water is available at once. Tank water heaters are the most common water heater type and have the lowest up-front cost of all water heater options. ENERGY STAR models use roughly 10% less energy than a standard unit and can help you save more on water heating costs.
Heat pump water heaters, also known as hybrid water heaters, heat water by transferring heat from the surrounding air to the water. Because heat pumps transfer heat rather than producing it, they are two to four times more efficient than other water heater types. An ENERGY STAR certified electric heat pump water heater could save a four-person household $330 per year in energy costs versus a standard electric water heater. Larger families could save even more!
