Hybrid Water Heater

Hybrid Water Heater 6If your water heater is more than 10 years old, now is the time to replace it

Most people don’t think about their water heater until it stops working, leaving no time to consider the best replacement option. Unplanned water heater replacements often come with high stress, expensive costs, and few options. Don’t find yourself in that situation! There’s a better way — upgrade now to a hybrid water heater.

Why you should upgrade your water heater to a hybrid version

Utility bill savings: Standard electric water heaters are the second largest energy user in your home. They use more energy than your refrigerator, dishwasher, clothes washer, and dryer combined. Replacing your electric water heater with a hybrid version can save you a lot of money and lower your utility bill — about $350 each year, which equals $3,500 over the life of the water heater.

Energy efficiency: Hybrid water heaters are extremely energy efficient and use 60% less energy than standard electric versions. The energy savings you’ll receive means the hybrid water heater will pay for itself within a few years.

Easy to use: Setting up your water heater and adjusting it for maximum efficiency and performance is easy with a hybrid water heater. Using the touch of a button on the display panel, you can set the temperature you like or select from four operating modes, including vacation mode. The electronic controls and display also shows you maintenance reminders and will alert you to any issues.

Peace of mind: Hybrid water heaters are designed to last and come with a 10-year limited warranty (instead of the 6-year warranty that comes with standard electric water heaters).
