|Bradford White Change in Water Heaters
Are you ready? The new 2015 DOE (Department of Energy) Final Rule energy efficiency mandates will require higher Energy Factor (EF) ratings on virtually all residential gas, electric, oil and tankless gas water heaters, completely altering the water heater landscape. These changes will have an impact on how water heaters are manufactured, distributed and installed, affecting manufacturers, wholesalers, installers and customers alike.
While all affected models will see an increase in the EF requirement, the most dramatic changes are in larger capacity models. The DOE established the EF requirement for residential gas and electric water heaters over 55 gallons to drive manufacturers to implement new, more energy efficient technologies. While the new rule does not require a specific technology, the only currently viable options to meet the EF requirement over 55 gallons are heat pump water heaters for electric and high efficiency condensing technology for gas water heaters.
Electric water heaters, already very efficient, will likely require more insulation. This will increase the diameter and/or height of the water heater. Additional insulation may be required for piping and fittings such as drain and T&P valves. For electric water heaters over 55 gallons, the only currently available technology able to meet the EF requirement is a heat pump water heater.
To meet the required minimum EF, gas models may require additional insulation, incorporate newer flue baffling technologies (including flue dampers), incorporate electronic ignition in lieu of the standing pilot, or any combination of these. Again, the likely impact will be an increase in the overall product size, especially in diameter. For gas water heaters over 55 gallons, high efficiency, fully condensing combustion technology will be required. This will mean that line voltage will have to be available, as well as a means for condensate disposal.
Similar challenges are faced with the oil-fired products. Much like gas products, oil-fired water heaters will likely require additional insulation or completely new combustion systems.
