State Water Heater Reviews | Consumer Ratings - Efficiency

When you buy a water heater efficiency is important. You want to look at the efficiency of the water heater including the amount of insulation the water heater has to reduce heat loss even in the off cycle. An automatic vent damper, for gas or oil water heaters, also helps to save energy by closing the vent in the off cycle. The prevents heat from escaping when the water heater is turned off.

For electric, oil or gas you want heat traps installed on the water lines so it prevents hot water from migrating causing the water heater to cycle unnecessarily.  All these things add up to saving for you in the future for saving water heater energy costs.

Stage Gas Water Heaters Buyers Guide Complete

The below list is not an exhaustive list of all models available from State. The listing is entirely made from State’s Energy Star Gas Water Heaters. Only the tank type water heaters. Before building the list I sorted them by recovery rate from the top down. Why? Because many people want a high recovery rate water heater that is energy efficient. The water heaters listed give you the tank size and the recovery rate. If recovery rate is important to you then you would select a tank from the top of the list that would meet your requirements.

For example, if you have a big family you likely want a quicker recovery rate so you don’t run out of hot water. Furthermore, if everyone in the family takes showers between 7 pm and 9 pm, and you have a high recovery rate, then you don’t have to worry about the last few people not having enough hot water. Lastly, if you are single or perhaps just two people then this feature will not be attractive to you. The important part of the equation is not to run out of hot water.

State Tankless Water Heaters

State Tankless Water Heaters

In the Energy Star criteria guideline, these are referred to as instantaneous water heaters. Tankless water heaters have many different uses that include using them for domestic hot water. Additionally, you can use them for radiant heating applications. Proper sizing is necessary for intended use. Furthermore, tankless gas-fired water heaters that are condensing do not require the use of a conventional flue or chimney. Special PVC piping can be used for venting.

Warranties for Condensing Heaters

It is important, if you purchase a condensing water heater, that you get a good warranty for the heat exchanger. State does a good job with their heat exchanger warranty by offering a 15 year limited warranty. Other parts are included in a 5 year limited warranty for the tankless water heaters. At least the Tankless condensing water heaters we reviewed. Other models may be different. Therefore, before purchasing any product such as a condensing water heater, make sure to read the warranty and understand what you are getting. Condensing water heaters produce caustic byproducts which is corrosive to the heat exchanger.
