In an effort to share current information about higher-efficiency water heating, the Coalition for ENERGY STAR® Water Heaters has joined Facebook. Contractors, plumbers and homeowners can now access the most up-to-date information about the national awareness and education campaign at www.facebook.com/ESWaterHeaters.
Water heaters represent about 15 percent of the average household’s energy consumption. Upgrading to an ENERGY STAR model can help improve a home’s overall energy consumption and help homeowners save up to $300 a year on energy bills. In areas of the country where electricity and natural gas prices are much higher you could possibly expect more of a savings on your energy bill!
“More and more consumers are seeking ways to save on both energy and cost in their homes. Our new Facebook profile provides them with the resources they need to make an informed decision when it comes time to purchase a new water heater,” said Kara Rodgers, senior program manager for the Consortium for Energy Efficiency (CEE) and spokesperson for the Coalition. “It also serves as an excellent tool for plumbers and contractors interested in educating themselves on higher-efficiency water heaters as they seek to meet the increasing consumer demand for energy efficiency.”
