Will a new water heater reduce energy bills?

Around 20%  of a home’s energy is used to heat water, so you may be able to lower utility bills with a more efficient model. The actual energy savings from installing a high-efficiency water heater will vary depending on the home’s characteristics and usage.

What makes certain gas tank water heaters more efficient?

Gas tank water heaters with an UEF of 0.66 or higher (no larger than 40 gallons), an UEF of 0.69 or higher (41-74 gallons) and 0.86 or higher (no smaller than 75 gallons) meet stricter efficiency requirements than standard models and include increased insulation, improved flue baffles, electronic ignition and/or electromechanical flue damper.

Are there instant discounts offered for gas tankless or condensing water heaters?

Energy Trust only offers a cash-back incentive of $200 for customers of NW Natural in Washington who install a qualifying gas tankless water heater in their home. Instant discounts are not available for gas tankless water heaters.

Can customers still get an instant discount if a contractor installs their water heater?

If you purchased a qualifying water heater from a retailer offering instant discounts, you already received a discount from Energy Trust at the time of purchase. This instant discount is not affected by a contractor installation after purchase.
