Homes in Orange County rarely need to worry about their heating systems. The weather is warm most of the year, with only an occasional cool stretch in the winter and scattered days of rain.
But there’s one heating system that does plenty of work and does it almost every day of the year: the household water heater.
The water heater accounts for a large amount of household energy use per year, and it’s an essential item for a home’s plumbing. This is why we urge people to make upgrades from older water heaters to newer ones (especially if the current water heater is more than twenty years old). A newer water heater can make significant changes in energy savings.
