Maine businesses can reduce water heating costs by upgrading to high-efficiency water heating systems. Efficiency Maine offers incentives for tankless, natural gas water heaters and heat pump water heaters. Upgrading to a high-efficiency water heater can reduce water heating costs and provide hot water when you need it. Learn more below:
Tankless Water Heaters
Tankless water heaters are efficient in part because they have lower standby losses than water heaters with tanks. They provide continuous hot water. They’re also compact, making them a good choice when space is limited. If you decide a tankless, natural gas water heater is the right system for you, Efficiency Maine offers a $1,000 incentive for qualifying, natural gas units.
Heat Pump Water Heaters
Each year, thousands of heat pump water heaters are installed in Maine. These high-efficiency units can save more than $3,000 over the life of the unit compared to electric water heaters. Heat pump water heaters typically have 10+ year warranties. Other benefits include a heat pump water heater’s ability to dehumidify the space where it’s located. Efficiency Maine offers a $750 incentive for qualifying heat pump water heaters. Click here for more information on heat pump water heaters and click here for rebate information.
