As an ENERGY STAR® partner, Washington Gas offers residential and commercial rebates for water heaters that are ENERGY STAR certified. Certified products generally use 20–30% less energy than required by federal standards.
Water heaters account for 12% of residential energy consumption, costing households hundreds of dollars every year in energy costs. Homeowners who invest in a planned replacement of their old water heater with a new, ENERGY STAR certified unit can save thousands of dollars in energy costs and avoid costly repairs due to age.
For business owners, ENERGY STAR certified commercial water heaters typically use 25% less energy than conventional units, which means reliability, savings, and decreased overall operating costs.
Washington Gas encourages customers to plan ahead with early replacement and savings with available rebates. If your water heater is more than 10 years old, start saving today! Plus, get additional savings with a 2017 federal tax credit from ENERGY STAR.
