ENERGY STAR®

Natural Resources Canada’s Office of Energy Efficiency promotes the international ENERGY STAR symbol in Canada and monitors its use. Major manufacturers and retailers of energy-efficient products, utilities and energy retailers, and interest groups from Australia to Europe  ecognize the benefits of ENERGY STAR to consumers and have joined in promoting the symbol. ENERGY STAR is the international symbol of premium energy efficiency. Products that display the ENERGY STAR symbol have been tested according to prescribed procedures and have been found to meet or exceed higher energy efficiency levels without compromising performance.

The information in this page will help you make informed decisions about water heaters that will save you money and lower your energy consumption.

Key points for buying or renting a new water heater:

  • Get the right capacity tank for your family’s needs. Too much capacity will cost more to purchase and operate.
  • If your water heater is approaching the end of its expected service life, research now to determine your best options.
  • Remember the second price tag. The operating costs will be greater than the purchase or rental price. Use local energy prices and consider future energy prices in your analysis.
  • Compare efficiency ratings. For gas-fired and propane water heaters, look for an ENERGY STAR qualified model. For electric water heaters, look for a lower standby loss.
  • Ensure that heat traps and pipe insulation are installed. Where practical, locate the water heater as close to the major uses as possible.
    Consider adding a DWHR device at the same time as you replace your water heater.

 

Key points for reducing hot water costs:

  • Install low-flow shower heads and faucet aerators.
  • Think about how your family uses hot water and take steps to reduce your consumption.
  • Use cold water to wash clothes.
  • Choose clothes washers and dishwashers that are ENERGY STAR qualified.
