Changes to Residential Electric Water Heater Federal Standards

Posted: Feb 27, 2015


To reduce energy waste and save customers money, federal electric water heater minimum standards are changing. Heat pump water heaters will be the only products to meet the standards for tanks larger than 55 gallons, making them the new norm for electric water heaters.

We are excited to announce that we have a new resource available to help you navigate the changes and what they might mean for your business. To access the 2015 Federal Standards Flyer for electric water heaters summarizing product updates and installation considerations, click here.
