Remember Water Heater Rebates When It's Time For A Replacement

Water heater rebates are available to anyone purchasing new equipment for heating and maintaining the heat of water as long as that equipment meets certain standards. Those standards are known as the Energy Star standards which were originated by a worldwide committee to make sure that energy consumption is kept to the lowest level possible without quality of life being sacrificed. Water heating is vital to any home, especially one in a region that experiences severe winters, so there are plenty of opportunities to save energy across millions of homes.

The Energy Star system is comprehensive and all encompassing, and there are many places you can read up on it online. This is worth doing so that you understand the background behind the government rebate program and the goals it is designed to meet. Each individual home may not be able to save that much in either energy or power, but when you consider the effect spread across millions of homes and commercial properties as well, you can imagine just how substantial the savings can be. Water heating is a relatively efficient technology in any case so the potential for savings is limited, but as part of an overall plan to replace your appliances it can definitely be worthwhile.

A domestic water heater can satisfy the obvious need for hot water for bathing, washing and cleaning, and it can also feed the heating system for the property itself. The more that you use your heater the more likely it is that you will be able to justify the expense of replacing it. Those with families and a constant need to heat water in a cold climate are more likely to find the expense worthwhile, with or without any subsidy. It is also important to consider whether or not you would be able to recoup your investment if you should sell the property and obviously the rebate makes that more likely.

Commercial properties can also benefit from water heater rebates. If the hot water is used in an industrial process the savings from even a slight improvement in energy efficiency could be substantial. There are many manufacturing processes that use large amounts of hot water and if you add up the total expense you will easily see how the goods could be produced more cheaply. The expense of the equipment upgrade can often be deferred using bank loans and will obviously be lower in many case should the rebate be applied.

The ongoing savings can often be enough to justify the initial outlay and even to cover the expense of paying back the bank loans. On top of this the plant or factory will have a higher potential resale value due to the newer and improved equipment that it now has. There are many further opportunities to save money by introducing energy efficient equipment depending on your process and exactly how much energy you use. If you have the wattage figures for your appliances you can even make exact calculations based upon your time of use.

Most water heater rebates are applied once the machine has been bought and paid for because the issuing office needs to be able to determine that it is indeed an Energy Star product. For this reason you may need to have the actual price of the product without the rebate before the transaction can go ahead. Finding the right heater to buy is not difficult as all Energy Star products are clearly marked. But even within this standard there will be some that are more energy efficient than others. Take your time to choose as you might as well gain as much as you can from water heater rebates.
