What is NAECA?
On April 16, 2015, the Department of Energy (DOE) will make effective its new energy efficiency mandates, as part of the National Appliance and Energy Conservation Act (NAECA). This update will affect all household appliances manufactured for sale in the U.S., and Canada. Part of these efficiency standards update requires nearly all residential electric, oil, gas and tankless gas water heaters to carry higher Energy Factor (EF) ratings. The new rule does not apply to non-compliant products that are manufactured before April 16, 2015.
First, start by considering the age of your current water heater. The standard warranty for an electric water heater is 6 years. Units typically begin to show signs of significant wear after about 7-8 years. This is when risk of leaks resulting in costly property damage is the greatest.
