Water Heater Regulations in Broomall, Delaware County


Feehan Plumbing & Heating's water heater experts of Delaware County have been advising homeowners to replace their current water heaters on each inspection since the start of this year. Why? Because the DOE has passed new water heater efficiency standards for 2015 that make direct replacement of water heaters in Broomall and surrounding areas more difficult. Now it’s official: as of April 15, 2015, the water heater efficiency standards were officially raised on a manufacturing level nationwide.

So what does that mean for you?

  1. Make the Upgrade– What’s nice about simply making the upgrade is that, if you do, you won’t need to worry about this problem ever again.

  3. Switch to Tankless Water Heating– There are a number of convenient alternatives to tank-type water heaters for Broomall homeowners to be aware of. For instance, tankless water heaters heat water on-demand in a series of coils rather than storing it — this makes for a significantly smaller unit and higher energy efficiency.
